    Olma bumper calendar - disaster zone

    I split this thread off from the EBAY Watch Disasters thread, as I didn't want to derail that thread. The original post in that thread contains the sellers images. Some of the moved comments have context from the original thread. Thanks for moving my stuff around Marrick


    It finally arrived and it's even worse than I imagined - I didn't think that was possible.

    Dial has been repaired with glitter-glue? I had assumed the red was paint spay on the crystal.

    Prize or a straight jacket. Either would be appropriate.

    Found the dial.. I knew I got a triple date movement with a good dial in a lot a while back, but it turned out to be a Norexa, not Olma.. :(
    It's a moonphase one tho, pretty cool actually :p too bad I don't have the case..

    Thanks for checking, much appreciated. It would have been an unbelievable coincidence, and a good story.
