Rave Wrote:When a watch is sent to Schaffhausen for service, we do not know how much of the original watch is returned. This is less problematic for a watch that is produced after, say 2000, unless the fish crown is replaced by a Probus crown. For a watch produced in the 1950s or 60s, this can be a source of immense anguish to some collectors. I picked a watch from Omega this month on behalf of my son. A quartz Seamaster that went in for a battery change. With the watch came a little plastic bag containing a rubber gasket, crown and a bent pin from the bracelet. Perhaps IWC should follow the same practice. When a watch appears for sale, collectors would be able to ask for the box, original papers, certificate of authenticity (whatever that may mean) and a bag of bits and pieces. Originality would be preserved but not necessarily in the same case.Just a thought.
