I was lucky enough to receive a package off Yahoo Japan "junk" this week and this 700C was part of it.

Been looking for one for a while for a Orange TST, this one not in the best of condition but the price was right :)

Replaced the battery and it fired right up and has been running strong, movement spotless, crown screws down four turns, case in remarkably good condition, hands poor, dial ok but not great, insert totally worn out.

Waiting on a set of hands from Stefan which will do it for me.

I do like "Junk".

Congrats John!

Sometimes I wonder if you sleep at all ...
Seeing all these awesome watches&parts you find + all the nice projects you re making
Do you have time for sleep?

The colour of the dial and chapter ring is amazing! Beautiful tone of orange.

It seems like it doesn't need much work. Why don't you get the hands cleaned instead of replacing them, thus keeping the watch all original?

The caseback is also very nice. I hadn't seen those texts B9907 before.

Please post some fotos once you are done with the restoration.
