I just wanted to post a few pics of my 5508 That just came back today from Bob Ridley. The watch wasn't mint, and I wanted to keep it close to the condition I purchased it in. The service included a movement overhaul, the replacement of the tube and crown with NOS parts, a very gentle case polish without removing the dings and deep scratches, the cleaning of the hands, some touch up on the white paint on the center of the seconds hand, and the replacement of some missing lume on the minute hand. I also replaced the bezel with an original alloy bezel so I no longer had to glue the insert down, and replaced the service crystal with a NOS tropic 16 dome crystal. As usual Bob did an amazing job, and I am really thrilled to be wearing this watch again, I love it!
Sorry for the crappy I-phone pics, I have horrible light.
