Inspired in this thread, I went out and bought a 1949 Hamilton Cedric project watch going cheap on the 'bay. These are the before photos, it might be 3-4 months before I post the after photos, I'll necro the thread then
Generally in good condition - US$46
Crystal is bad (been ordered)
Patinated dial, which I would normally keep - but as it has to get the 2 replaced, it'll get done (been posted).
Lovely 982 Movement, ticking along but needs a good service... I am looking forward to working on this one.
I appreciate the way Hamilton identify models inside the case - it makes life easier.
This one is off to International Dial as well. Beyond salvage.
