Additional Information

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).
