Title: Another Restore
Post by: aberlow on February 13, 2013, 12:35:37 AM
So i just finished this restore, and would like to get the forum opinions. (I do not act poorly to criticism, it will only make me better.) Let me know if you guys have thoughts or questions!

Nice job! Do you have any "before" shots?
How much work was needed on the bezel?

Looks awesome and I'd be first to say if something looked off.  And leave that 12 faded as it is.  Looks cool like that.

Thanks for the nice words! As to "before" pictures i'm sorry i don't have any! Will do for next (next) time! The bezel actually needed no work other than a little rub with a light solvent to get some caked dirt off the underside! the back and the movement however were a mess. The gasket had melted (which i sense is a theme for these) and had gotten into the movement. The oscillating weight axle had also snapped.

On the dial, I totally agree. The faded 12 looks awesome, and as always adds character to the watch and looks worlds better than a redial. Until the next one (posting in a few) thanks for the kind and encouraging words!
