The uncased Mk I 56-H Chronometre, bought from Germany on my behalf by a friend in England, has finally completed its multi-legged journey to my workbench.

It looks great--runs pretty well, and is decidedly rare. Unfortunately, finding a proper 56-H case or even the case back, will be nigh on impossible. Still, it deserves to be revived, if not exactly to original specifications.

I've got a few things to take care of before I can take a screwdriver to this, but I am excited to see whether it fits a case I have ready to receive it. Wish me luck!
