    Maybe it just needs a decent nickname to bring out the big $$$ .....how about calling it a Sub-Tropical Chronostop Ultraman? :D

    Looks like a reasonable amount of corrosion in the case back, around the sides of the movement, and the pushers - I'd take a punt on that case being FUBAR from a water resistance point of view, even when it's been cleaned up.

    If this was about 20x larger I would hang it on my wall as modern art.

    If I took that to my watch repairer he'd smash it with a hammer, wipe it off his bench into the trash and ask what else I brought.

    Agree, no hope of resurrection. If it was free I'd have it as a novelty piece.

    With manageable efford (and a little bit of criminal attitude) hands, case, bottom and crystal are "repairable".
    And are more worth than 100 £.

    Well, if that seconds hand shows up on a 321 Speedmaster, it'll return interest on the investment :D



    (yes, I know it's slightly smaller than the correct Ultraman hand)
