Grammarofdesign I recently had the good fortune to add a white dial.
Both are mounted on proper bracelets, too.

I am pretty sure Max is sold out but it never hurts to ask.

Both guys are great members and solid sellers. Top notch suppliers to us WIS's.


Thanks guys. I'll give them a try.

The black dial versions hold up well, I had a blue dial but sold it off because the dial just didn't look good after all this time so I never wore it.

I have mine on an incorrect bracelet. I very much seek an original. Is there a bracelet code stamped into the end links on your original ?



That bezel looks awesome. I'll have a look and let you know about the bracelet.

dahlm076 One thing I like about these, (judging from photos) is how the bezel insert slants upward toward the center, characteristic of the grail 6215-7000, and also the 6217. Looking at my watches my srp777 looks flat as does my 6105-8010. I really like that look, and I've got my eye out for one like yours, alebit I'd take one in lesser condition!

edit: that original h-link bracelet is killer!!

Poor man's 62mas.

Got my poor mans 62mas back from the German Watch Maker. I bought it new in 1978 and it's been going ever since. Recently the second hand started to tap the minute hand and the rooter started to sound funny so I took it in. Norbert took it apart, changed some bushings, cleaned and oiled it and replaced the seals and it's been keeping great time since yesterday morning. Not bad after 38 years. Still have the original bracelet but I like it on a NATO.
