I was just chit chatting with a fellow watch collector friend and he offered his vintage Ploprof for sale. Was never keen on the Ploprof 600 as ALL live examples i have seen has got horrible looking pimpled dials and lume flaking. Somehow decided to give his a try and arranged to meet. Well, the rest is history guys.... And a wrist shot.... I know you guys will ask for it... hahaha... lume shot Now a couple of questions. Why doesn't the second hand lume show up? Is opening the case the only way to find the movement number to buy an extract? This looks extremely difficult and i am worried local watch makers will not have the proper tools hence damaging the watch. Also, my friend's uncle who passed him the watch claims that the case has never been opened and he is the only owner. Which watchmaker is competent to do a first servicing for me? I do not mind shipping this overseas for the servicing. Does the watch look polished to you gurus? I am inclined to think this watch is a MK2. But it came with a mesh bracelet which i thought only MK3 and above has that option. Anyone can help give a definitive answer to this? I am basically a Speedmaster guy and am really surprised that i can be so happy scoring a Ploprof. Hence the ranting here. It has never crossed my mind that i will be wearing one of these. Which brings me to another problem... my wife will definitely notice this watch being completely different from my Speedmasters... no way to hide the fact that i broke my promise not to buy any more watches in the near future. Hahaha. Another happy problem.
