I bought this a while ago for some reason, received it, put it in a draw and promptly forgot about it until i stumbled across it last night while looking for something else, don't ask me what i was looking for because i forget :):(

I have done nothing to it apart from change the pusher and crown gaskets to see if it works, i havent even cleaned it as i only rediscovered it last night.

The "good,
  • original bracelet fits my 7 1/4" wrist
  • After winding it up last night it has ran and kept reasonable time.
  • The case is in pretty good condition and not polished.
  • The pepsi bezel is decent (see pic).
  • The movement is clean.
  • The original crown is complete with spring and gear.
  • The inner bezel which is pretty good rotates with the crown.
  • Day/date works fine.
  • Chrono seems to work fine and snaps back to zero.
  • Pushers work ok.

The "Bad",
  • Crystal is terrible.
  • H/M and small sub dial hands poor, sweep second hand looks decent.
  • Dial not great with a blemish in the sub dial.
  • Even though running i imagine it needs servicing.

During the last 24 hours i have reset the chrono a few times with no problem but just this very min i reset it and the small sub dial hand flew off, bugger :)

IMO bracelet, crown assembly, decent case and clean movement make this a decent project watch.

Please note if you are looking for the perfect grail then this is 100% not for you :)
