    Gub 60.1 >>>>


    A neighbour of mine gave me a nice present: A Glashütte watch from the 50ties with a GUB 60.1

    The watch looked like that:



    The movement was in good conditions so I thought to invest some time an little money. First I polished the case with my Dremel and after that I added new spring lugs and a new croc-like-strap.
    A new acrylic crystal was added today (got one for 12 Euro from Flume). That´s the way it looks now:





    Next step will be a refreshment of the dial. A cleaning will do probably. The dots need to be re-lumed, the hands need to be filled with luminous compound (Tritium). I contacted Mr. Bethge ( www.bethge-watch.de) to get the re-lume done. He replaced a dot on my vintage Stowa Seatime too and you can´t see any difference.

    Great work Mike!
    I would leave the dial as it is, though.

    May I ask you what Bethge charged you for the dot?
    I have a nice Favre-Leuba Sea Chief with a mising dot.

    Cheers,

    Axel

    Hi -

    Beautiful example of one of the few really nice older GUBs. I've been tentative about acquiring any due to the often merely adequate calibres inside, but that one is a beauty.

    But what do you want to do to the face? The only thing I can see needing done is at most a relume...
