Watch Description

I picked this one up this week for a spare movement/dial.  I hadn't planned on putting it in the DB because it looked pretty rough in the listing.  Much to my surprise it cleaned up beautifully, much nicer than the first one I entered.  There is little to no wear on the case and the dial is really pretty.  I popped a new crystal on it and a NOS band and it is almost like new!

It has a 10K yellow gold filled case dated stamped L0.  The movement is date stamped A9.  Photographed on a postcard I also picked up recently.

Wow Kathy, that's a sweetheart! Don't you love it when you think you are buying parts and it turns out to be that nice? Well done w/the band and crystal, I'm impressed!

Thank you Bob!  Yes I was pretty happy when I realized how nice it looked after cleaning the case.  This is one of my favorite AA models so it is really great to have one in good shape.
