Hi,
I bought another 116520 P serial fresh from service a couple of weeks ago. It was fitted with a black dial and I was thinking about fitting a cream dial(that came from another p serial) that I had in my collection but when I took the dial from storage and looked at the dial it now has changed now has a very faint lime green tint to it at - it still looks cream from the pictures - I havent been able to capture the green colour yet in a picture but I can deffinately see it in person, I checked with my wife and she can see the same - anyone else have a dial like this? or heard of it before? I put the dial next to some other white daytona dials from my collection for comparison.

If I change the dial will it invalidate the service guarantee that I have?

Should I insure it for more than a regular 116520? If so where can I get a valuation?

Many Thanks in advance
Simon

in the past we have also seen one dial faded to a "hazelnut" shade :
