Why some eBay seller do this I just don’t get.
The plastic bag is the only packing material on it. If it wasn’t partially caught to the package adhesive the watch would’ve been long gone.

I'd say our little group is going to corner the market on Pogues and related watches ....

You might be right. Last year I lucked into a silver "resist" at a good price. I knew it would need some work -- I could see lume rot, a faded rotating ring, aftermarket hands, and signs of a junk chrono wheel. I also suspected other ailments related to the hand replacement; when the date changes at 5:00, there's a pretty good chance that whoever installed the hands didn't know what they were doing.

But the price was right and the dial wasn't beyond redemption:

So I shipped it off to Simon with a bag of parts. He finished it up recently and it arrived today. Not a bad transformation, I think:

wowzers that is gorgeous - What's cool is that all of these watches are getting scooped up by our forum members and getting properly restored back to their full glory. Well done. (y)
