thank you !

should you ever drive by a watchmaker .... a picture of the movement (you know, that cock marking question) would help a lot !!!
interesting to see it does have the additional 3-digit number.

Case number is 827850..... There were movement markings but the restorer did not take note of them.

She runs beautifully now.....All I need now is a Spitfire to scramble in 15 minutes!!

And a watch strap that is the correct width for the watch lugs!

It was ordered as being correct for the watch from a reputable dealer in the USA (as advertised on here).

And...... I just checked, the original (only the non clasp end exists) is the same width?

Keep the original strap in whatever condition it is in....... again this forms part of the value!

Always keep all serviced / replaced original parts.
