I love this "after" picture...the crystal has been replaced with a normal one and the polish has really cleaned up the piece   That linen dial is magnificently clean, with correct indexes and hands too!  Is that a newer Maltese Cross crown? The guilloche lugs makes me wonder if there was a matching basketweave bracelet with this watch at one time?

Thanks, I had my watchmaker replace crystal and it certainly makes a difference. On my White gold batman the crown has no cross! so cannot be sure which is correct. Its nice to find a rare model made even more interesting by the lug work. Thanks all for your comments.
the craftsmanship on those lugs is extraordinary! (nt)

Must have been about the same as when they did this one, I never seen the texture on dials before or efter mine, which is from 1959-60 ! Cheers Doc
Happy Valborgs Eve Doc!

How will you celebrate the arrival of spring? The texture and designs on your watch are very interesting and finely done.  I see facets on the inner bezel...are they part of the case or the crystal? Tirewatcher's lugs are heavily guilloche'd in a crosshatch pattern which suggests that a basketweave bracelet would match very well.  Something like these...
Yes a bit 'look a like'

but the mine is more 'thight' in it's texture. Your watches are so ugly that they are beautiful What I mean is, that we who were in our 20's in the 1970's, even at that time, thought the style was terrible. The 'flared' trousers and something the young person's doesn't know, all clothes were at least one number to small.  Everything should be extremely tight! So after 15 seconds you had armpit perspiration,  plus that the distance between thr buttons in the shirt, when you sat down opened up This even happened to me, who always have been a 'thin' person but on a little more wellfed guys, it looked terrible, curiously not on girls Thanks for the Valborg greetings, it was a fantastic day and has been for two weeks now, all cherry trees in blossom etc. We are at least one month earlier than I ever have noticed in my long life! Thanks heaven for the 'greenhouse effect', which I don't believe in at all BTW...  Cheers Doc
