Here it is !!

I've immediately changed the strap for a used brown one I had…

The watch is gorgeous, the dial is in NOS condition o_O |> |> |>

The gold case is OK, with stains around & on the crown, nothing problematic for me on a watch of this age…

Now, here are the pics :





























"Plaqué or galvanisé" (gold plated galvanized)














Stains :






Side by side with my LOINS… same proportions.

A brand new strap (almost !)

The brown band on which I mounted the watch wasn't exactly new :roll:




and I wasn't sure I'd keep it…


But in the end, I think it goes pretty well with the watch, so I've decided to make it look better. I used a shoe cream (not polish) and I'm quite pleased with the result :)



















I now have a vintage watch, with a vintage strap :-d \o/

Bracelet

I tried another combination with this 2-tone bracelet I had…





























It looks OK on pics, but not so much in real life :-/
I'm not sure I'll keep it :think:

You got it re-PVDed, right ? :think:

Great condition, and fantastic chocolate dial |> |>

Hi Reno,
Close.....re-plated to 15 microns. A little heavier than the original 10 micron, so it should last a while. Well spotted!
