watches i baby to keep nice; or even send out to have restored for better condition. I bought this watch specifically to "play with" and modify ; imho the watch clearly is designed to look old, why not put apply the faux wabi ? This certainly isn't a collector's piece, simply for fun ... again just my .02c
Much appreciate the reply - the differences we each have are what make this such an interesting / fun hobby
Kind Regards from N.M.
