My Saturday morning project was bringing this one back to life. It seems to be happy now. I don't know what that is on the dial but it looks much worse in the photos than it does looking at the watch.

Yes l agree with you Alan  nice looking Commodore. A good match to add.  Think it looks better with the leather strap to. The dial looks as though the watch belonged to a smoker. I have a Senator that the dial looked very much the same as this one. I used a cotton bud dampened with jewelry cleaner and very gently rubbed it over a few times and it removed most of the staining from the dial

Well done on the advert Alan, I'll go right along with the Commodore ID on this one. Beautiful watch, nicely done.
