    Reborn with Fantastic outcome John 👌👍🏻

    Outstanding you had a nos dial and the whole watch now looks like it's been stored rather than burried..

    Cheers,

    Konrad

    Beautiful. Those gilt bridges and welded bars look terrific (and I really like the strap too).

    Not bad! Not bad at all!

    The watch went back to Wales at the weekend. Plenty of muddy fields but the Longines stayed on my wrist.

    ..I'm right behind you with a metal detector just in case..that's a damn fine looking watch

    Out of curiosity, were the hands beyond saving or are the current hands them after cleaning/relume?

    I was lucky to get this directly from John Senior. Hands, crystal, stem, crown & dial were new old stock. Bridge with s.n. was salvaged from original movement
