    Are most machine-holding rings made of metal? The machine-holding ring is replaced with a plastic ring in this eBay offer. Is it worth bidding for in your opinion?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mary

    That dial looks rather crummy to me, Mary have you had a look at some of the Constellation line? Although they were mens watches originally in the 1950s and 1960s, they're very elegant and the 34mm size looks great on ladies

    Yes, some spacers were made of plastic - usually quartz or lower cost watches had them. I'd pass on that watch.

    Thank you folks - what do I do without you. :) I retracted the bid.

    I think at this stage we've probably cost the frankening industry at least a hundred grand or more ;)

    I hate eBay frankenmasters. Not as much as I despise counterfeiters though.
