    I picked this up unseen from a bricks & mortar auctioneer by remote bidding the other week, and it arrived today.

    After a strangely satisfying hour or so giving it a good clean, a bit of polywatch, running the bracelet through the ultrasonic and popping off the bezel to disgorge the gunge underneath, I think it's looking rather good

    From what I can see, the dial is in very good shape - it could probably use a new crystal to bring it up to spec.

    Love these! One of the best dark sunburst dials out there. And just a wet sanding of the crystal may take all the deeper scratches out.

    That's really nice - is the lume original? I didn't think Suwa lume went creamy as it aged usually...
