    Just wondering if anyone knows if the tachymeter bezel for an a386 is the same as for a g381. I recently acquired a g381 that is missing the tachy ring. I am also looking for the original crown for the watch if anyone has any ideas where I might find one. Any help would be appreciated Thanks

    IMHO they should be identical.
    Good luck :thumbsup:

    Yes G381 tachy is same as the one found in A386. There is the original and also a service replacement part.

    Thank you I just wanted to be sure before I ordered one as I can only find one listed for A386. Any ideas on finding an Original crown in 18k? also does anyone know if there was ever an 18k Gay Freres ladder bracelet for the A381?

    No 18k GF ladder bracelet. The one you have it on looks good to me

    In my opinion, leather strap will fit perfectly!

    Monti- if you haven’t sourced your Tachy ring yet, as an FYI, I wanted to let you know there is a NOS one for an A386 currently on sale on EBay.

    In addition, for the G381, does anyone know if the original buckle was also 18k? Any ideas as to where I can source one? Thx!

    Hi As far as I know, they do - I have both... FYI, (service ones have a “fat C” in tachymeter, the original ones a “skinny C” - here are mine (warning - obligatory watch shots to follow)

    The g381 has the original tachy, the a386 a service one - however I managed to source a correct vintage one and it should be back next week..

    Thanks! Nice watches!

    Do you know the pecs on the original G381 buckle? 18k? Size? Do you have an original buckle for you G381? I would love to see some photos.

    I would also like to know if anyone has any ideas on where to source one? Thx!
