    This 5513 (ca 1977, with pre-Comex maxi dial) arrived yesterday covered in grime, with a badly scratched crystal. After some clean-up last night, I can't resist wearing it a bit today before taking it to my watchmaker. Fortunately, I was able to salvage the domed crystal with successive grades of fine sandpaper (1500- and 2000-grit) followed by Novus 2.

    As the cheesy dealers say in their listings, "This is no safe-queen!". Very well-worn, banged-up, and faded ... but running and intact (except for the incorrect bracelet). I think the look may grow on me. For now, I'm just going to have my watchmaker do a full service.

    This was my first automatic watch quite some years ago. As time passed I started wearing it less and less until it sat in a drawer for the past couple of years.

    I found it again today and enjoyed the heck out of wearing it! :D. Honest watch with a great bang for buck ratio in my book.
