Salvation is here !

First seen here, I bought for quite a high price, an original 105.012 from the Salvation Army via Ebay, the lot is here though the link might not last forever. As you can see, there was not much to go on, but instincts were that it was a highly original watch, untouched apart from some attempts to open the back, which by resisting, may have saved it from “Restoration” by a muppet.

So it has arrived.

I am very keen to see how my instructions were carried out. I asked the workshop to clean and service the watch and to replace nothing. In the event I notice they have replaced the rear case gasket, which had turned to mush.

More in the next post!
