    That bezel turning one way thing is by design. In a divers watch (not that many of us actually dive), whenusing the bezel to time the dive, if you turn the bezel the other way on accident you now think you have more left than you actually do. It’s a safety feature on a true divers watch

    Huh, didn't know that.....well, I guess it's a legit diver.

    For me, it makes a great timer for ticket times......the deepest it goes with me is a sink full of water when I'm stuck doing dishes.

    Look, I don't know about you jokers....but I'm pretty careful and can deftly handle my wedding tackle.

    You don't just go around willy nilly with metal and sensitive skin. Any of you guys shave for chrissakes? Been doing it for years and all my bits and pieces are still attached.

    I wonder about you guys.

    Clearly in rough shape, and it's not running. I can feel/hear something moving around inside. Research indicates these are pretty valuable if running, so I'll look into getting it repaired.
    Upon closer examination, it looks like the crystal has a major flaw around the 5:30 position. Still, this is a fixable problem.

    Great looking watch. Simple and elegant. Needs a simple black leather strap to complement it.

    Makes all the other watches in this thread look like useless, worthless, POS. :)

    Jdjohn ,
    Whatever u decide to do ,
    Leave the dial , hands , bezel intact and untouched - no matter the condition ...
    Do not even have the watch polished ....
    I wouldn’t even replace the crystal unless u can get a NOS one ....
    Just get the movement serviced with NOS parts if possible ....

    The value in that watch lies in its originality especially the dial , bezel and hands ..... if u replace parts the value declines significantly ....

    All about the patina, huh? I forgot to mention all the watches he has were from thrift stores. He got lucky on this one.

    To each their own. I personally despise gold watches but my dad has a couple Seiko 2 tones that work well for him and look good.

    I’m more of a stainless bracelet with a black or blue face kinda guy. Goes just as well with jeans and a t shirt as it does my nicest suit.
