I got this one on a trade as something of a whim. I had pretty much expected I would flip it...and that thought evaporated once I got my hands on this Searambler. I love the chunky case, the deeply recessed dial and thick crystal and just the overall feel of the piece. But there are a couple niggling things. The first is that the hands have been replaced. These glow all night and are very crisp....assuming modern replacements. I am looking it as a regular wear piece, so that is not overly bothersome to me. What is of a little greater concern is the condition of the silver dial. It looks great when the light catches it just right...and the markers and text are all very crisp. But there is sort of a spotting to the dial. I would call it pitting, but it doesn't appear to have much texture to it like pitting you would see on a case. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this phenomenon on their own dials, and if there is some sort of cleaning option. I am thinking if it is some sort of oxidation that can be removed with the right sort of solvent? Or should I just resign myself to it being aging and accept it as it. It isn't terrible and if there is no solution to it, I am okay with that. But if there is a fix, I would like to find it. Anyway here is a shot of the new baby:
And here is a closeup of the dial to give you a better idea of what I am talking about with the dial:
Any advice? Thanks in advance!
