    Shows it better in these pic,s more of a green patina. Case and movement are quiet neat. And looks like it has been serviced regularly with case back markings

    Bought from Argentina a few years ago. (US$1,500 on full length 1039. Those were the days :rolleyes: )
    Decided to just go with the 'skeleton' chrono hand during service as part of the lume was missing.

    No kidding, I agree!

    Of course, had that happened, either the family, or the company handling the estate would have more than likely sold it outside the home somewhere...

    this guy Amos slogs away for 40 years and they get him a gold plated watch? Kodak deserves to have gone to the dogs.::censored::

    I worked for a prominent Canadian retail jeweller for nearly 25 years. I say nearly 25 years. I took a package which paid me a salary for a year after I left them. The option was to stay another 6 months, and my reward would have been a plastic Seiko clock welcoming me to the President's 25-year club! They were a ROLEX dealer. I thought the year salary was the better option! So Amos didn't do too badly!

    Green patina? Did somebody mention green patina? OK, I didn't wear this today, but you can't argue it's not green.
