    300T Restoration

    I sent this guy off to Jack's Doxa "Boot Camp" for out of shape Doxas. It should be done pretty soon. Jack sent this pic which looks pretty good to me. I'll post more when I receive it back.

    Regards
    Scott

    Re: 300T Restoration

    Thanks fellows. Very educational experience. Ill post more on that later. But three important things:

    1. Buy a decent shape vintage to start.

    2. Only pay a fair price because there could be hidden mechanical and obvious cosmetic repairs needed.

    3. Patience :)

    I am hopeful my sharkie logo will turn out as well. Can't say enough about IWW and Jack. Really went extra mile to keep me informed and answer my questions.

    Thx again
    Scott

    Hi Scott,

    that's the right way to buy a vintage watch. Hidden things can always pop up!

    Excellent looking searambler

    Re: 300T Restoration

    Thx again for the support ! There is something about the vintage models for sure. I guess it's the history behind them.

    Hey Holger is your Rolex 5508 the sub with large crown? I have kicked myself for years for having sold my 5512 gilt dial. What a great piece that was. Would love to see a pic of your 5508???

    Regards
    Scott
