This is what was under a 6105-8110 i have just removed (it is my day off today so some "Time on my Hands" ;D bezel would not rotate or budge for a while, underneath was solid with something like thick yellow mud, some times though strangely enough i think a load of gunge can protect as well and often under the gunge it is pristine.

I feel your pain! I think this happens to all of us from time to time. At least you should have a sweet piece when it's done.

Cheers!

I have a feeling that when your watch is done, it will be gleaming! A high polish will take time, but should be of only moderate difficulty. It's about the journey, not the destination though, isn't it? BTW, I dig the black day/date wheels!
