Minor Restoration – Major Improvement….

Sometimes an interesting watch arrives after an exciting search and auction bid. One example is my Seven Star Rally Custom – a model that was high on my ‘I want one of those’ list but took a while to find. Here it is on arrival:

Overall this looked pretty good, and ran well too. But….those hands are not nice to look at! So off the watch went to have them re-painted to their original spec. After an impatient wait, the watch came back looking like this:

Now that looks easier on the eye! And it is how it should be. Well, not quite, since the original has a pale blue second hand – that’s something I could do myself, so here is the final result:

Now I’m happy 🙂

      Hola Paco,
      El reloj no está en venta, pero yo hubiera pensado alrededor $300
