    Agreed with the masses.. That dial tells a better story than a replacement ever could.
    Looking for any Franken GMT Master, Sub, or Sea Dweller. Also interested in vintage builds.

      Please don‘t change the dial. I also had a reduced but was too small for my wrist and I got his professional brother :-)

      The watch tells a story as you said, you don‘t know it but it looks like its a rough one. You have done great work to restore it but you shouldn‘t change its face with all the scars......

        Wow, That's so amazing. You do great work too. I can only do small repairs, and brushing and polishing. I would love to learn to take a watch apart or restore some day. Thanks so much for sharing this. This is the stuff that really intrigues me. This watch has so much character. If I was buying it I would keep that dial on it. I'd much rather have that dial with so much character. Thanks again.

            Oh, I realized I never posted an update on this one. Ended up joining Yahoo! Japan Auction site to find the chrono hand. Then used Buyee to be able to purchase with a Japanese forwarding service - seems complicated but simple. I’d recommend it for purchasing on Yahoo! Japan Auctions. Also, there are some good gen finds on those auctions.
            Anyways, hand installed and complete!





            And a photo with my Speedy pro cause I heard double wristing is a thing now.
