So my wife is crusing a couple of flea market looking for some materials for a project she has, when she spots 2 watches.

A day later:)


I have sourced a original bracelet but it will be awhile before I get it. Really appreciate some suggestions on a strap that would look good with the Pogue

Arrr, a correct "Pogue" with resist dial and only two lines of text. I've been on the lookout for one of these, but they always sell for high prices, regardless of their state... Congrats on the find.

Nice find! Not quite the same at the dude that found the LeCoultre dive watch at Goodwill for $5 and he later sold for $35k, but I'd still be excited.

BTW, I'm now cruising all the local thrift stores. :)

From what I understand that is the correct indicator ring, just very faded.
let me qualify my statement. "proper" was meant to mean unfaded. it may be "correct", but there's nothing correct with the way a white indicator ring looks when matched to a yellow dial....not by a LONG shot.

Phew, glad we avoided the whole 'are white bezels original or not' discussion.

Great looking watch OP, congrats...
