    If the watch has stopped it will actually be "maximum precise" twice daily!
    :eek:

    Laurent: I interpret your question as referring to a "ridge" or "lip" on the front the case, ostensibly abutting the outside circumference of the crystal. The piece you reference has been zealously polished, indeed. As to whether the polishing has removed the ridge/ring in question, I do not know. If memory serves, @aapalileo has a piece like this one: perhaps he can chime in. In the meantime, I've attached below a few other examples I found on a very quick search - perhaps they can provide some comparative reference, particularly in the event that I misinterpreted your question. Best of luck.

    Severin, you had my question spot on, "lip" is probably a better word. the examples you provide are showing a heavy polishing too..... I'm still amazed that someoene would do that to a case that looks fine...

    Bummer! no serial number or reference, crystal is not great ... Great dial and set of hands though. Some parts of the Venus 178 were replaced. Does anyone know what ? A great parts doner if you have one already !

    Did the seller send you a movement shot? Or how do you know that some parts of the 178 were replaced? Can you please share the photo if they sent you one.

    It's the starting bid. Tempting... I think the seller is an OF member with the same nickname

    For a starting price that's pretty high.

    IMO, maybe not a bargain but, serviced according to seller, i don't find the price too high.
