6119-7510 from 1976
I have just completed this full restore. Been working on and off all week, complete stripdown and service (except mainspring-yet to learn this skill)
I refinished the case which in this one was more of a challenge because of the angles and two types of finish.
I then fitted a bracelet that I had which is of this period as I cannot source the original.
Anyone know where to get old bracelets from please let me know.
I’m very pleased with the outcome of this one. 70s retro are my genre and it’s much more satisfying to know you’ve resurrected a watch that would have otherwise have been destined for parts.

"Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. All the Soldiers around the World who fought for the lives and freedoms we have today
One hung on the cross and died for your soul
Our Soldiers bled and died for our freedom and we owe them everything...please never forget that...
The Republic will cease to exist when the government takes away from those who are willing to work to give to those who are not.
"This is what the Lord says: 'Stand at the crossroads and look; Ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.' " (Jer. 6:16)
