Franken Diver 100 / step 2
On Januari 21 I posted pictures of my Franken Diver 100 I found on Ebay. The watch had an incorrect Autavia 11630 case, the wrong hands, wrong bezel, some of the lume dots on the dial were gone and the watch needed a movement service.
I found the right 11063v case with pushers, crown, glass and case-back. Still missing are the typical Mercedes style hands and the Rolex style bezel ( or decomp bezel ). James Hyman did a great relume job, making these lume dots from scratch is not a job every relumer would accept. Abel did his usual magic on the caliber 12 movement.
