Courtesy of Polly, these three are back in the fold.

2 Japanese and One Swiss.



5H23-7080. Bought this one in a job lot with my 7T32 for £25. It had the most disgusting bracelet I've ever seen, absolutely caked in I'd rather not know what. It's a bit of a mystery as there is very little info on it, and of course searching "Chronos" brings up loads of chronographs! S/No. starts 94 and there's no "Quartz" on the dial, which suggests '89. It has (unusually) a screw down crown and 10 bar W/R. JDM maybe as it has an English/Kanji day wheel.

Next is the "Death Crash Special" 7N43-8001. I was given this by a very dear friend who then informed me that her Dad was wearing it when he died. In a glider accident ! Despite plummeting from 400ft, it worked until the battery died. 6 years later I tried a new battery and it fired up. But not for long. Mike revived it and it's almost as good as new.




Finally a Tissot Seastar given to me by a customer. It ran for a while then died. The dial has spots, due to moisture ingress caused by the wrong crown being fitted (no gasket), and the quick set on the date doesn't work, but it looks way better than before Mike cleaned it up. It may end up as a beater.




Thanks once again Mike.
