Additional Information

His Excellency UU.  New mainspring,  winding pinion, crystal, and swapped dial from a "President".  Nice condition, with slight plate loss and some scratches around crown from winding.  Purchased for little in a pile of misc jewelry.  Crystal is not correct for UU model, but I like the vertical bevels.  That's what was there when I got it, but glass.

Looks good! Nice work! The bevels give a lightning bolt look to the hands in the photos! I recommend inserting a cropped ad of the 1948 Excellency UU to enabel the panel members giving your star rating. Thanks

I noticed RoundGold mentions the President dial swap in subject watch. The "President" dial closely matches the UU dial above, right down to the stylized numerals.  :)
