    My Birthday Borgel... with new inscription!!!

    Hi all,

    Following a couple of recent threads.... one to ID the movement (thanks Mirius for pointing out it was a Marvin) and another thread/poll asking if you would get a vintage watch inscribed with a modern inscription... It leads onto my new borgel....

    Just serviced and relumed..... New leather bund (Thanks David) which finished the watch off perfectly!

    Plus.... it came with an inscription.....







    Im really happy with the condition of the watch.... not 100% sure on the lume colour, but its growing on me!









    The Borel case is in great shape and unscrews well! Dated 1917

    Thanks Gents!

    The Lume has been very well applied to give the vintage look... IMO and I am very happy with it! I think the colour was a tad (just a little) more orange colour.... but it does suite the watch very well.
