    I was hunting for Art Deco pocket watches on the 'bay when I stumbled on a lot of wrist watches listed as a "lot of Art Deco watches for parts or repair." Here are some of the sellers photos: image.jpeg
    Wait what does that dial say? image.jpeg
    Interesting...


    I was pleasantly surprised when the lot arrived with a running Universal Geneve manual wind caliber 332 with a partially textured dial with a little radium burn. Here it is after a light crystal polish. image.jpeg image.jpeg
