        That's bad news mate. I wasn't convinced that it was worth the asking price but the seller rejected my offer.

          The pictures were bad and also the item description. So i tried my luck and paid with Paypal, so i am protected...
          No big deal but it makes me sad to see what kind of agony this DS went through.

              Really looks great Tim, congrats on a job well done. It looks like the platers did an outstanding job. I always wondered how a replated bracelet would look. Seems like they would be difficult to replate, as intricate as they are.

I had this watch fully serviced and it was in such good condition that I decided to have the original vintage mesh bracelet that came on the donor case re-plated, to finish the restoration job off properly. It took some time to find a plater who could do it and was prepared to take on such a small job, I ended up having to send it on a 1500 km journey to South Australia

                    This is the bracelet that came on the donor watch.

                    How it looks now.

                    So I think this Ammolite Balboa is now as close as I can get it to the condition it left Lengnau in back in late 1974.

                    That's just amazing.
