    I am not sure. I will either get it fixed or sell the watch. Still trying to decide.

    That bleeding gasket under the crystal ruined the inner bezel on one of my Flightmaster. Took me a great while to source a proper replacement. And this was many years ago.

    I would take care of that problem right away if I where you, while it´s still manageable.

    Today I'm briefly double-dogging it (that's the term, right?) as my fantastic 2792 has gotten some golden company - a brother from another mother ;)

    The difference? Well, obviously the newcomer, a 2892 is gold-capped, but it's also labelled as a Seamaster. I guess it's an age thing, as the 2892 is a '57 model and the 2792 is two years older. Also, the movement is a 284 as opposed the 283 in the older model. The difference? Well, I guess the 284 is one louder :D

    Really pleased by this one, even though it's in need of a service. I still cannot understand why these are so cheap. Reasonably modern size and design language, solid caliber, good brand. Even pretty common with black dials!

    Problem taken care of since long. I was joking around a little. That type of bezel fading will from now on be known as the rare marturx-bezel and that is of course a part of my retirement plan.

    ...Wouldn't both watches have to be wrapped up in velcro for that? Or the photo taken in an airplane cockpit/a Dunkin' Donuts? ;)

    Well, changed out from the straight writing to the 3572.50. To 99.9% of the population** the two watches look identical. However 99.9% of the OF members fully appreciate the subtle differences.


    ** please note I have not asked my wife if she notices the differences. She thinks I'm crazy and already spend too much time and money on watches.

    When I bought this one, almost 4 years ago, I had no idea that the 3572.50 had a tritium version and luminova version. I just wanted the crystal case back. So glad I ended up with the tritium. And even more happy that it ended up being the birth year of my youngest.

    Here you go the Marturx-bezel. I do hope it´s utterly rare!

    It´s yours for 10k USD, but you have to decide quick, it´s appreciating by the minute! :D

    Just remember, engineers are like cats. We may not look busy, but somewhere in that brain is a plan to take over the world. :cool:
