GuyVerbist Wrote:Hi Bill.Now I'm at home with the docs and photos, the watch is indeed a 3711 with that funky crystal. The dial is "T SWISS MADE T". I will be asking for both to be kept, even though the service report says the dial is scratched. I can't see any scratches - maybe with a loupe it's a different story.Anyway, reading the service report on a full screen instead of a phone I can see the techs say the hands have to be replaced because they are oxidised. I have asked for them to be left if it's only a cosmetic issue, but to replace them if this is required for the correct functioning of the watch.I'll keep you guys posted, thank you for your input.Guy

GuyVerbist Wrote:Sorry for the minor thread-necro, but the 3711 came back from Schaffhausen today.I'll try to put together some photos next week. However I have to say that, as ever, IWC have pulled off a fantastic job. The whole watch looks brand new and perfect, apart from the (to my eyes) beautifully patina-ed dial, which was kept intact as per my request.As far as I'm concerned IWC Schaffhausen are now on 3-for-3 in terms of perfect servicing (3711, AT 2000, and my wife's 35mm Inge).Bravo!
Time is something invented by the Swiss to help sell more watches
