    Is that original lume or were they re done. I've read that a re lume can look very nice and yours certainly does. If it is a re lume that is.

    I don't believe it to be a relume and if it is, like you say it is an excellent job. The watch is how I purchased and all I have done is have it serviced.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm thinking of re luming one of mine as I was advised a very good aged look can be applied now. However, the only one I've seen up close was very badly done.
    It would be interesting to know.

    Still wearing Speedy G. but switched to my black nylon Rothco protective band...which accessorizes best (imho) with my new Metallica "Master Of Puppets" t-shirt. :thumbsup:

    Today, I feel slightly ashamed :oops: but today my seiko solar beater, oh mercy, it has a battery :(!!! Spent much of the day looking after my six week old nephew, and my cosmic moonphase I doubt, would be very resistant to baby puke and poo!

    Was expecting this one today, and it did not disappoint. :)
    Airane Type 20 (though I think technically it is a Type 21), issued by the French Army to helicopter pilots. This example is circa 1969, Valjoux caliber 222 with flyback or "retour en vol" feature. The three star mark indicates chronometer certification by the Besançon Observatory.
