So my hunting today brought this one home. Was sitting in a random box at an antique mall. $110 then the seller had 20% off as well. It wound, ran, and set so it was an immediate yes.

These are pics after I polished the crystal. I already have one on order. All hands are there.







I put the case through the ultrasonic for 15 min. Came up nice.


Sad state of the movement. Needless to say it is going for a service. I have an nos Omega ratchet wheel on the way but the other one I need to keep looking.

So far I have not found another 520 that is marked adjusted but I am still looking.

Well I have seen a movement and a few dials now. Amazing what a few min of searching turns up.

Awesome! Looks pretty good for close to 60 years old. If only they could talk. I'll stay tuned for updates.

What a great find! Where do you hunt for vintage watches?

Antique malls, pawn shops, garage sales, flea markets, coin shops etc...
