      I took a chance on this old backset for $3, and it turned to be a great watch! The before pic shows a cruddy watch in need of a good bath:

      But a case washing and new crystal later shows a stunning backset:

      I had never seen this gold dial in this case before. Usually this case has the linen dial one. But I was really happy that the "West Germany" eleven jewel movement fired right up because this is one of my favorite fonts for a dial. The case says it was made in 1962 in Great Britain, but the dial says 1963 in West Germany.
