Afire,

I appreciate your thoughts. Very Happy
I was looking at the photo again and you are right, the hands do line up with the dial markings nicely. Those hands as they are are nicely blued; I think new lume would look out of place with the old. I'm a bit reluctant to alter the dial at all. Even removing the old lume and replacing with new like on the example you show.

My main concern with this one is the case and the repaired lug. I'll take some better images to show what I'm talking about. I want to get this to wearable condition.


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
