    This newly restored Grana WWW. It completes my collection of the "Dirty Dozen".

    2nd pic is before restoration. I had to modify, paint and relume an old blued steel minute hand to replicate the correct Grana minute hand. Not 100% correct but it will do until I find a Grana (or Omega WWW) hand.

    I searched for this watch for over 2 years and could not be happier with this one. Case is almost untouched and dial is impeccable with the original radium lume. My geiger counter nearly had a heart attack during the reading... Grana on wrist.jpg DSC_7053.JPG DSC_7115.JPG DSC_7119.JPG Modifying minute hand.jpg

    Late father-in-law's faithful Seiko World Time. He bought it while on leave in Japan, and wore it while serving in Vietnam as a Navy Corpsman.
