Dear David,

You do have a nice collection! It's not only the amount that counts. Memosail patented the revolving disc module used on top of a ETA movement. However Aquastar patented the revolving disc mechanism movement with flyback much earlier. Regarding the ring, I'd suggest you keep it the way it is, since sailors have more need for a compass ring, rather than the dive ring, if you catch my (nautical) drift ;-)
And so it is more appropiate the way it is. It is a nice watch, and if you ever decide...
I haven't seen a Gallet before with 5 and 10 min. register which reminds me a bit of the Yema Yachtingraf with the same function. Very nice indeed! Good luck in your quest...
