    That's a nice simple but classy style - it looks good on the wrist.

    I'd like to see it with a new crystal though - in the first picture the second hand had disappeared behind a scratch!

    I don't know if it's just the brighter environment in which that last picture was taken or if you've put some elbow grease into polishing the crystal and case, but it has done that watch some good and really complements the dial. That dial has aged really nicely... it has a nice marbled look to it.

    Sure did.. Elbow grease and Autosol Metal Polish on the crystal works wonders..
