There was a dent on the side of the bezel and quite a few smaller scratches so I was prepared to pay for a new bezel. They were able to polish it all out though and I can’t really notice any difference, I’ve had it about 7 years so it had picked up a fair few scratches but looks new again now. Cost £1140 for the service and polish.

You have any smudges of the watch before it went in for service?

Hard to see in the pic but there were quite a few surface scratches on the bezel and bracelet, some scrapes to the edges and a dent in the bezel by 5 o’clock. The quickset date had stopped working though so that was the main reason for the service.

*have, but thanks Laughing out loud


In a game of top trumps the roley loses every category other than anything related to money.
The GS is actually for sale. Please see Rickrudes glowing recommendation above. 1/5stars

Oh no I will. I’ll get in touch with Andy. And as for you, let’s meet halfway. I wouldn’t be driving 300 miles just to see your ugly mug.

Meet in Stow-On-The-Wold after the new year.

Edit: Swede, you’re a tosspot.
