The guy was a Wire Feed Welder

From the looks of it he was a "Wire Feed Welder" and did not use gloves at all.
That's wire feed splatter on the ....Case and Crystal
BUT..... it has much potential looking at it.

You're right - it does look like the work of a MIG. I have one for my car restorations but I always whip my watch off when using it....and usually wear gloves.

Looks fine to me, but I am a welder.
mig splatter has no real penetration so it should knock off with the right tools

This was one of my recent 'finds':






with paint as well:




it cleaned up nicely (given the battering it had taken during its life).

I got this today from a local action.

The welding splatter on the case....really makes it:eek:

You guys wouldn't touch it at the price I paid but it was still worth me buying and I'll get it looking and going well again:)
Thats not wire feed splatter, thats a trying to mig to dirty metal splatter, or run out of gas splatter.

Paul, im a sucker for a 7002 and yes id have a go at it.

That's gorgeous. My kind of watch. :)

Straighten the dial up, quick polish of the crystal and we're good to go.

Thanks for sharing

Kind Regards

Graham
