    Good evening to all
    This is my first post on this amazing forum I have found out so much about my favourite watch brand thanks to all.
    I am on the lookout for a bezel for the above mentioned model I think it is a 2000 series I still have the spring clip which I found on the floor a week after I noticed the bezel missing.
    I am also on the lookout for a dial for an orange F1 circa 1990 that has water damage after my missus thought she was doing me a favour by taking it to timpsons for a new battery.
    Thanks for reading all the way
    Kind regards
    Scott

    Oh dear...(too!)
    Sorry about your mishaps. Have a look on Ebay generally but also through Brokenchronos bits-there will be a donor there likely, it's how much your prepared to spend I guess.

    I don't know the F1s very well but which model do you have-373.513?
    Best, Steve

    many thanks for the replies i do indeed have the 573-513 and it has been with a watch repairer for a while now and it turns out the grey dial is no longer available there are still alternatives and i was quoted £205 for a white dial with new hands as well as they got wet too but then there is the cost to get it running again which takes it up to £350 and i look on e-bay there are still good examples cheaper so it's not worth it, when i told my missus how much it was going to cost to get it fixed she told me save my money and put it towards a new one!!!!
    it's a shame she didn't say that when she went to timpsons!!!!!!!!!
    once again many thanks for your replies it is much appreciated.
    kind regards
