    I bought this watch recently . . .

    MC12-H-Champagne-041721-1.jpg

    . . . facets sharp enough to cut your fingers . . .

    And the fellow said to me:

    "I have another one and can send you a photo if you are interested?"

    "Sure; let me have a look," says I.

    And so I am wearing it today for the first time.

    How could I have resisted?

    MC12H-GR-Snow-White-051121-1.jpg

    . . . a very late (1969-1972) "Snow White" in immaculate condition.

    Wyler Dynawind, ETA 2770. Acquired from swap meet for $10, watch ran, but was basically unusable due to the absolutely trashed original crystal, looks much better now.

    My postman brought me this today from a very pleasant transaction with @Alpha

    Black dials are so complicated to photograph!

    Learned a lot from my first microbrand a few years ago. broken crown and no after-purchase service (no reply for purchasing of parts) from the brand. Still like the watch a lot though and wear it with the bent crown.

    Seiko NH35 movement, correct? If you wanted to try an NH35 stem as a replacement it should only be a few $.

    Yes NH35. My watchmaker suggested the same but I didn't want a mismatched non-bronze crown. The watchmaker tried to straighten the stem and it works but just unsightly, doesn't screw down well and wobbles.
