As you all know, we don’t do quartz watches, but this one if from a parent from my youngest daughters playgroup, so we do make exceptions 😉
The poor watch has lost the luminous compound from the hour hand, and the bezel ring has gone awol. Being a TAG, you can’t buy spares as an independent, so we have to get a bit creative here …
No wonder TAG watches are so expensive – the ETA 955.412 will set you back a whopping £ 10 wholesale, and the plastic case ring, injection moulded by Tibetan virgins, will add another £ 0.10 to the production cost. So well worth every penny (£ 795) you pay for it 😉
The hour hand has lost its luminous compound.
As I can’t buy a new bezel, it’s off to my trusted lathe.
Voila – new luminous compound, and a hand-made bezel ring, and we are back in business.
