i saw this on the bay was going to bid but i saw that i looked like to much gold was missing and some rust...i try to stay away from cases that need to be replated...i hope you are able to fix and restore it..it is a interesting model...

thats good,you got a good deal..i just don't have the tools to do so...although i was reading online that its kinda easy to do electroplating, and that you don't need a really elaborate set up to do it....I read some like middle schooler made a simple process to electro plate metal and it works...Otherwise you would have to get that kit for the major jewelery companies
