A recent eBay surprise that had me (once again) spraining my thumb as I absolutely crushed the BIN button. It'll need a couple parts and some movement service, but I'm happy nonetheless.
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.I'd say our little group is going to corner the market on Pogues and related watches ....
