I distinctly remember thinking ‘you’ll never make it in the beauty contest’ when I first saw this watch. There wasn’t anything seriously wrong with it, but it was a used watch that had been used by its owner. It actually proved to be an one-owner watch, as the owner’s son described to me (his father was a baker and he always remembers him wearing it). We took it apart and cleaned it thoroughly; washed the case, cry-cleaned the dial and hands, polished the plexi and, with a wonderful and even patina throughout the dial and hands, it worked out nicely. I’m calling the dial colour ‘peacock blue/green’. Its not black, nor blue nor green! It carries a 25j Oris Cal. 645 KIF that was professionally inspected, oiled & regulated. The gaskets have been replaced and the watch is ticking away happily. The steel case measures in at 38mm or 41mm including the crown. It is wearing a same-period steel bracelet. Other than the 2 spots on the dial caused by the dial feet, its a nice, honest watch!
