Additional Information: 

1955 Senator with variant Charcoal Dial

11ABC movement is clean but clicks when winding so has to be serviced.

Case is scratched up pretty well but solid.

Dial and hands are perfect.

Crystal is supremely thrashed and has to be replaced.

It has a solid 50's Topps Pigskin strap that I hope I can restore and keep with this beauty.

 

-Sorry for the quality of the pic, I will shoot some better shots when i get home tonight.

I was lucky to rescue it from the local flea market, thought of replating the case but I don't want to.

I've seen some good results with plating. If anyone's interested,

Jason,

If You can't get a full Wind the Watch needs a Mainspring.

The Case bezel is Chrome plated, re-plating would not hurt.

Thanks Fifth,

I will have to take it to get fixed, do you know any affordable replaters?
