I like the Railroad stuff Todd!

For Friday, a new addition for me the 55' K-250 / 661 movement. Attempting to find one of these with a clean dial is next to impossible.

With the Radium on the back of the hands, it was a recipe for disaster and a burned dial. This dial was very strange there were two marks where the hands had been. I pulled the hands to get the radium off the back and proceeded to gently wipe the dial. I did not think it would work, it was like an oily residue and the dial came out great! Another one saved for posterity!

I always like the dedications on the back! :)

I was wearing my coral Wilshire today. Compared with when I bought it 7 years ago, I have many more watches now competing for wrist time, so it's been awhile.
