Had one of this "Craig Moments" today, another watch I enjoy immensely.
Some of you have seen this one with a very dirty dial, now it's just perfect - on a 1943 Breitling flyer - thank you, Phil !

thanks, Roff - quite the day indeed, as the parcel also included that NOS-looking 18k 769 from the 1950s that had a stuck bezel; Craig found it was a bit rusty :oops:, but succeeded to clean it perfectly, works great now. HappyFred!

Just a bit rusty. Must have saved weight shipping it back with that much oxidized metal removed :poke: :wink:
