(Frank = watch made with parts from other models made by the same company(could we call this a prototype?), or another company).
If the "Frank" looks and work better than the "original", would you buy it?(consider original parts and a great service in the watch)
I had the leather strap on my TAG Heuer 2000 Professional, automatic replaced by the strap of the Carrera (one with the holes in it, I just love the look of that strap!)by ProTime (TAG service), does that make my watch a "Frank"?
Even if it looks better than the original?
I remember reading somewhere that Chuck change the dial in one of his Heuer Pilot watches (Am I right Chuck?)and the service was done by Heuer, does that make his watch a "Frank"?
