Note the arrow stamp on the movement next to the serial number. The original 5000 release always have the dual triangle and arrow (not sure what the arrow means)

I'm still trying to find the original photos of this watch as bought off eBay earlier this year. I wanted to show the before/after photos. Hopefully I can find then again.

I love bringing these particular watches back to life. New crystal, crown and stem is all it needed along with the hands being re-painted with lum.

This one is a keeper.

Despite the regulator being almost full 'advanced' this baby keeps time to well under a minute per day.

Mind you that is after I have fully stripped, cleaned, oiled and adjusted.....the watch that is....not me.

I finally found the original photos of the watch when I bought it.

Amazing what a bit of spit and polish can do.

I started my own club, kicked myself out of it and then let myself back in....the power of being the 'Admin' :-)
