I’ve spent a small fortune on aged, faded inserts to try to give my vintage watches the appearance that I like. The other day, though, I popped onto the VRF just before turning in for the night and the first post in the market was a listing for a NOS 1675/0 medium font insert. It looked perfect, and bearing in mind it was period correct for my watch I thought I’d give it a whirl for a slightly different look. (Fortunately, GMT inserts don’t command the ridiculous prices of those for the old Subs, and this one was a very fair €130 delivered from Germany).
It’s certainly different, and to my mind it’s bloody gorgeous.
