Thank You. These electroplate finishes are more difficult to work with than gold plated or filled.

Yes, I found that to be very true. I really like the gold filled best.

Another stunner from the work bench of Mr Anderson, well done Ken the dial is remarkable. I think this is one of the finest watches Bulova made in the 60's. Love it in the original clam shell, looks brand spanking new!

Commander D, fabulous watch.
