Some times it isn't whom you know or even what you know. It is where you live...

wildtoad lives about 20 minutes from me. We met... Super nice guy (he's a geologist so that is a natural) and he had a nice watch.

Turns out that Gary is right that the dial looks a bit off center. The lug at 10-o'clock was repaired. The dial is really nice; albeit a few marks from wear likely from being uncased. Hands are period correct but the dial has lumed hour markers suggesting that this had luminescent hands at one point. These hands I think are also too short.

I still bought it.

Suggestions on the correct hands would be nice.


All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me
