This weekend's Tissot T12 rerefurb

This one was in desperate need of some TLC and wasn't running. Full strip down, repair, clean and service with a bit of a  case tidy, proper crown and new crystal. It tells the time great, as well as looking not too bad for 58 years old

If you don't mind my asking, how did you brighten that dial? It looks amazing.

I've been called out as disgusting for this method, but here goes... A soft cotten bud with saliva on the end.. Apparently according to the old watchmakers the enzymes in saliva break down the old grease/oil/mould etc on the dial without affecting the laquer. Saying that it was in fairly good shape to begin with.
