Another junker restored. This is a model I have wanted for some time. Found this one on Ebay and in really rough cosmetic shape. I never saw soooo much human DNA caked in the bezel with holes in the case back. I had to soak it in an ultrasonic cleaner for hours then try to polish in-between the markers which is not easy on this model. It came out nicely. The back was worn thru from years of winding wear so I found a 1951 case on ebay swapped out the back. (Anyone need a good condition Berkshire bezel and dial I have one just PM me).
