Has anybody got one...I just want a blank for refinishing. I know HORRORS....

I don't want to spend a bunch of dough but you might have one lying around that you didn't wanna throw out but don't really have any use for.

The deal is my best friend bought a 16800 in 1982....he has worn a submariner since he was in high school in 1965....

He realizes the value of his MINT dial and hands...never opened by anyone but Rolex when it was about a couple of years old.

He likes his watch to glow in the dark....but he DOESN'T like gloss or white gold surrounds.

He never wears his watch anymore.

I thought I would see if I could find a blank and get decent refinish done on it and have it done with luminova and put a new set of hands on it.

Put his old dial and hands up for storage.

Either blank should work I think.

Ideas?
