I am not willing to "destroy" it, that's an emotional bit of rhetoric on your part that doesn't correspond very closely to real life. To be frank I just can't afford to spend what I suspect will be hundreds of pounds on a cosmetic repair. A third party dial, while a modification I would greatly prefer not to have made, will be preferable to the current dial which I just can't live with. It will still be the same watch, albeit a modded watch.Here's a macro shot of my Mk XII immediately following its accident. As you can see, it isn't a replica.

All that does not come cheap. You seem to think it's just a question of a new dial for a fiver from the back of a cupboard, allow another £15 for removing and replacing the dial and say a fiver for postage and packing and all done for less than 50 pounds. In your dreams.
