Re: Dial Cleaning Methods

I dab and roll rodico for bloomin ages. If no improvement, then I soak dial in hagerty cleaner on a 50:50 water ratio for a minute or so, re-rodico and repeat - but this does tend to remove the lume, so just try the rodico first.

Re: My first Illinois - Advice/Info please

Frankly, I'm amazed that this is your first Illinois after 315 posts over 5 years. Where have you been :) Anyway, regardless, please be very careful, these little beasties are rather addictive, as I'm sure all the other Illinois lovers here will agree on.

Re: Come on, man!

A waste of a perfectly good movement. Doesn't look good, impractical, horrendous, IMO.

Re: Dear EBay Sellers:

Dear ebay sellers: Starring an auction for a watch at £7.71 ($9.99) does not make me immediately want to buy the watch thinking wow the starring price is UNDER $10. Unless you are clinically brain dead, it doesn't work in the shops, and it sure as hell doesn't work on the swamp. If it's worth it, we...

I guess you will be fine unless you start buying watches with transparent display backs :)
