 I noticed you didn't change the hands on the watch, I am pondering servicing mine,  I want to change the crystal to sapphire as I find the mineral glass too soft, I also want to restore the case as its a bit rounded and has lot is sunburst lines, the only thing I wouldn't change is the dial which is now a nice brown after 51 years however, I have pondered changing the hour and minute hands as they have lost their lume , but after seeing your I am convinced I should leave the hands as they compliment the aged dial.

What are your thoughts?

 Also  good luck with the 321 hunt .

For me it is better to keep the hands as original as possible. It will look strange if you have a vintage dial with new hands.
