Another little donkey saved

So, when I picked this up off eBay it was feeling pretty sorry for itself. It had an incorrect stem/crown, an incorrect movement holder, a broken dial ring, awful hands, a missing seconds hand, a badly scuffed crystal and a very tired case. The previous "tinkerer" had also been clumsy with the dial so I've tidied that up too.

A service, new parts and a case restore very much required.

It's a much happier little chap now after a full service and on a nice new NATO

...and now - onto the WC Camel as the new hands have arrived.

Wow, that is an absolutely stunning watch! You really put a lot of work into it and it shows. Have a lot of fun with your watch, congratulations!

Most people would have covered its eyes and shot the poor beast. Great resurrection there and it looks great.
