Hi all, Here's a new look at my 6039 bought originally at a bargain price from a local auction site. Thanks to my fellow South African WIS, Alvin, the watch is now looking considerably better with his kindly donated bezel insert and hands. Alvin is a generous person and excellent friend, not to mention a very dedicated WIS. The crystal doesn't look half as bad in real life by the way!

Also - a joke I've just heard, possibly as old as the hills, but new to me:

In the news today - The owner of the world's biggest watch collection died. Lawyers say it will take years to wind up his estate.

Jules, I still can hardly believe it's the same watch!

For the benefit of our fellow forumers, this beautiful, unmolested 6309 has the nearest to perfectly aged used dial (and by this I don't mean NOS), and I must say - this combination, with the "new" original used hands, and the "new" good used bezel works!

I think I might even prefer this used but well-cared for WABI-look over an all NOS restoration in this case.... Beautiful!!! I think you should leave it exactly as it is, if you can live with the crystal like it is.

This has given me such a kick!

Alvin
