Almost 10 years of waiting have ended finally. In part ll I was still looking for a Venus 203 movement. 2 years later I had the opportunity to purchase 2 date discs and 1 moon disc for that mvnt. I thought "why not, maybe one day I can use them".
A few months ago, someone offered a Franklin watch with Venus 203 in running order, rotten case and ROTTEN DATE DISCS !!! See...
Took it, put a layer of rhodium onto the case, watchmaker did the cleaning and found some hands .
I love it .
Btw: any cases for UG cal 69 around ?
