Default Restored a 7548-700F from '81

My first full restoration. This piece started with a case, dial, and hands from a guy on Craigslist. I sourced the movement, bezel insert, crown and stem on the forums in an effort to be true to the OEM resto idea. The gaskets were aftermarket, and the bracelet from one of my SKX. Just waiting on a battery to arrive now, but everything seems to be in working order and smooth. This thing honestly looks like a tool destined to be submerged, much more so than anything else I've come across!

It's a great feeling bringing something like that back to life! I have a 6105 project on the go at the moment but it's gonna take time. Can't wait!


nice amount of wabi on that it looks great!
