I was presented with this one owner 1675 PCG to refurbish.

Bob ordered it new from the catalogue on post in Germany in 1960 when he was stationed there. He is in his mid 80's now and actually took a fall last week and has been in the hospital.

Hopefully he will recover soon. I hope to present him with the watch later this week. A super nice veteran who used the watch as it was intended.

It was missing the bezel and a very nice VRF member helped me with a correct one for it.

The dial was replaced at Rolex in the mid 60's The hands were relumed at some point. The dial is a very nice espresso brown color albeit has a few flaws.

Keeping very nice time after a few bits and innards.
