    Sometimes you get lucky. I bought this birth year 1958 LeCoultre a few months back. It looks like someone tried to clean the dial and ended up removing the “LeCoultre”. I found an NOS dial in Germany. It arrived this week. My WM installed it today. :)

    My first vintage watch showed up today so on the wrist it goes. Tried buying a Seamaster (lost out) than realized I better learn to walk before I run. Love it...and for $150...much less of risk for someone new at this.

    Something princely to close out the work day :)

    The cheery brightness of this dial seems to defy the gloom in which it was born. This is the only watch I own that was made in the 1980s, arguably the darkest period in the history of Swiss watchmaking. It's not mere happenstance that we see so few mechanical watches from this decade.

    Unfortunately don't know it's previous history but when I opened it and had a look it was absolutely pristine and new looking with no service marks on the inside of the case back and no marks on any of the screws so I am guessing may have never been serviced, in which case it's keeping amazing time lol.

    Obvious dirt is rarely a factor in determining whether a watch should be serviced or not. Run you car without oil, and be guaranteed you be on the hook the next time you drive it. Run a watch without oil, and it will take longer for total failure, but while you persist in wearing an underperforming watch, know it that total failure will come.
