Is this OEM dial ?
I bought this DD as shown on the photos a little while ago.
I sent the first one back because the hour markers were badly placed: they were crooked, uneven, out of true, easily detectable with the naked eye.
I then received this one in replacement, not sure if they simply changed the dial or offered another watch altogether. This one is better but still suffers the same issues. Most of the hour markers are off (and the photo is not as bad as is looking at it on your wrist), some are closer to the outside circle, some are off centre with their respective hour lines, some are rotated with respect to the centre.
6 marker - rotated anticlockwise
2, 5, 7, 8, 9 markers - off centre with respect to their hour line
I wonder how can they possibly be placed that badly. Don't they use machines for that sort of thing? How did they make the dial at all? That's done in a machine.
Looking at the clasp you can easily see the welding debris, it should have been filed off and polished , visible from a mile away if you leave your watch on the table and anyone pays a closer attention.
Looking to join you guys soon with a nice DJ or Day-date
if anyone happens to have a DJ2 with rhodium (silver) dial and blue numbers, and interested in selling let me know
Has the 118139 or 118138 been repped?
what do you think of this one?
is it worth to buy? they mentioned "the first really 1:1"
Lucy told me, that there is the problem with the cyclops on glass at the DJ 31mm from BP. Has somebody information about it?
Best is 116400
I bought DD II from a trusted but i believe i didnt get the right movement, is it difficult to swap for the right one?
Or is it better to sell it and get one from like puretime
