IMO opinion they are so kool to wear and really undervalued considering the cost to buy new watches today. So let's SEE those 2 Tone watches with Nipple Dials whether they be GMT, SUBMARINER, or whatever. Here is my baby--16753.

I couldn't agree more. Vintage nipples are great.

a pic of a luminova service nipple dial in the VRF dial archive. It's the only one of I've seen and I think it is very cool to have the nipple with the functional lumi. Can you provide any additional information on that dial? I was kind of hoping to get one when I got my 16758 serviced (I was able to keep the original nipple) but it came back with a lumi dial with the modern yellow gold surround plots.

Cheers,

Paul

...my original dial was good but I knew a lumi Rolex remake nipple dial would probably turn out to be a fairly rare dial, especially marked T Swiss T! They showed it to me prior to the service and it was so beautiful, that inky black gloss surface with the perfect gold nipples (Freudian?), I had to have it!
