This Proof/Proof Chrono dating from August 1969 arrived from the USA a few days ago. All I did was wash the case and replace the crystal & seal with one of Swedefreak's excellent repro-crystals, which revealed an absolutely flawless dial, tachy-ring, hand-set combination!

This must have been a much-loved and very well-cared-for watch, as the case is in excellent state, and the movement is one of the cleanest I've yet seen! Accurate too - it has lost less than 5 seconds in 4 days, and the chronograph functions perfectly - with a crisp snap-back of the big hand to 12!

An absolutely beautiful watch on the polished centre link Oyster-style bracelet.

My personal thanks and gratitude to Mr. Dan Somes for the watch and to my friend Swedefreak for the parts. Both regarded highly in my book!

Regards
Alvin

Congrats, I am working on a couple 6012's at the moment, a blue like that and a black proof proof one. Managed to snag a NOS dial for the blue one on a sneaky BIN...


Wear it in good health, it looks gorgeous.
