WTB Snorkel "V" orange dial

The Bulova Snorkel bug has bitten me. I have recently purchased a Snorkel "M" and a Lady Bulova Snorkel that I have sent off to "Timemachines" to see if he can bring them back to life. Now I am really looking for a Snorkel "V".  There is one on the bay, but it looks like the dial has a few marks that I really don't care for.

 

Thanks,

Kirby

Kirby - the one you see out there right is a nice one. Remember, the marks you see are most likely on the the crystal which can be buffed OR replaced, chances are, the dial is OK. I judge these watches by the chapter ring condition. The one you're looking at is in very nice condition. A dial can be refinished to perfection but that ring cannot be repaired if it is damaged or faded.

Geoff, emailled the seller and yes it is on the dial, but after some thought I decided that the dial could be refinished so I have a bid on it. Got my fingers crossed that it will soon be mine. The nice bezel is what sells it.

Yeah the bezel in the watch your looking at is nicer than mine. Good luck Kirby.
