    Funnily enough David after having purchased a used 750T recently I went and pulled the trigger on a used 300T Rambler this afternoon.

    Within seconds of the purchase I received the aforementioned article via email and the watch there is VERY similar to the one I just purchased. The one shown is in far worse shape than mine but interesting to read the article about the very detailed and delicate 'restoration' that took place.

    Hi David. I bought it from a reputable seller on a different forum. And if the pictures are true (I have little doubt they are) then the restoration will be a walk in the park compared to the one in the article.

    That is pretty impressive. I am sure not cheap to do but it looks great

    Well it arrived today, and as I said not in the real bad condition of the watch in the OP.

    Very very pleased with it. Two Doxa's down, several more to go when finances allow.

    Can anyone recommend a new strap folks, mesh, rice etc. The strap on it will suffice for now but really want to 'take it back' to it's heyday as it were.

    Seriously considering sending it off to Perth, just need to find out the price first.

    if you do send it to Andy L, maybe ask him if it's possible to modify the new bor end links to fit the 300 case? the new bracelet is nice, a bit thicker than the original, had mine brushed by IWW.
