    Good luck. Hope you get it sorted.

    I'm in Melbourne.
    Where do you get it serviced? I know there is a TH service centre in Sydney as my AD sends mine there for servicing and it takes ages and costs a bomb!
    So many watches, so little time...

    The only thing is, does somebody know if that glowing stuff on the dials is repairable?

    The lumes can actually be redone. But I'm yet to see a lume work that looks untouched… I would probably leave it alone, or, if it really bothers you, I'd search for a new dial for your watch.

    If others know of well done lume works, they shall chime in...

    Watch is looking good from here. Is it polished or satin ? Cannot be certain by this picture… Maybe the polished parts could use a little soft polishing. It will come back to new-shine :) (don't over do it!!!)

    Indeed, for its age its looking good, the watch itself is satin and the bezel polished, the S bracelet is one satin and the other polished.
    Maybe i must bring him for a cleaning 😉

    Re: The Link - S/EL Club

    Usually pictures show much more issues than the naked eye can see. Basic refinishing is not that hard but requires PATIENCE. "Cape Cod - Polishing cloths" do wonders ON POLISHED SURFACES. And so do SCOTH BRITE pads. But on satin-finished steel there isn't much that can be done. Either you leave the satin parts as they are, or you brush them with scotch brite. But BE CAREFUL so you don't polish them with the cape cod, and you don't brush the polished parts with the scotch brite! That isolation requires care and patience! You S/EL is a classic marvel. And it has a great movement, too!

    SNAP!
    A few more of my CG1120.
    Purchased new in 1991 and worn daily for many years before I decided to put it away for safe-keeping.




    With the Carrera that gets more wrist time these days.

    I'm a hopeless photographer, and these pictures don't really show the clarity and effectiveness of the white dial which is what drew me to this watch originally. This S/EL is a keeper and isn't going anywhere...
