    Hello

    Would like to ask for opinion on why the date has discoloration while the day has none. Is it possible that it was replaced? 20191204_182807.jpg

    2 different coloured disks. I suggest the day is correct, date is wrong, more likely for a gold watch.

    I always thought that there was only one disk that contained both the day and date. Well you learn something new everyday. Thanks for the info.

    Thanks for the reference of showing that they are separate disks. But on your photo they are definitely of different color, so is it possible that this is an all original disk and no replacements were made?

    IIRC the date disk on these is plastic and the day disk is painted metal so it may be discoloration of the plastic due to age.

    So it could still be all original disks. Thanks for the heads up.

    You mean it is normal for these 1020's for the date to have discoloration and for the day to have none?

    He means your watch is fine and there is nothing to worry about.

    @dra43b Yes, same thing happens on the 1045, if you look at images of the Grail you'll notice the same effect. Have two and they both show this. As written above this is due to the disks being of different material.
