I have not a clue what the real name of this watch is, but I started restoration over 2 years ago, and TADAH!!!!!! It's finally done. The dial was trash when I got it, the case was a mess, and of course....it needed a complete overhaul. ID did the dial, Ryerson had my crystal, and I scouted out various places for the rest. It came out pretty nice! Soon, it goes for sale!!! Anyone want to guess the name?/vgforum/index.php?t=getfile&id=3875&private=0/vgforum/index.php?t=getfile&id=3876&private=0/vgforum/index.php?t=getfile&id=3877&private=0/vgforum/index.php?t=getfile&id=3878&private=0
