My now retired watchmaker used to scribe his initials; repair ticket number and date on the back cover of his repairs. He once mentioned to me that if the watch was ever returned he could look at the repair ticket to determine exactly what he had done; replacement parts etc.
Thanks, I am debating getting this watch repaired. Because it did belong to my Dad, I would like to hand it down one to my daughter one day. I have yet to find someone that is recommended but willing to take on new work for the repairs.
They are very nice watches and despite the climbing prices the past couple years (particularly for the black white version), it is currently still one of the best valued models in the vintage market for a valjoux 72 based movement (as mentioned its is a Valjoux 730).
