Good job!
Thanks stryfox, I appreciate the encouragement you've provided! Because of the way this watch has to be taken apart and reassembled and the added jump hour mechanism with seconds pinion, it was a new challenge for me.

Thanks eclecticfunk! The Dial-O-Rama is a watch that I've wanted for a very long time.

Thank you retroworx!
Especially with the holidays almost here, I want to say that this forum has really helped me grow with vintage collecting and making repairs. I'm grateful to so many who freely share their knowledge and wisdom and especially the members who have directly provide guidance and encouragement.

Thank you, everyone. All my best to all for healthy and happy holidays!

Long cold day at work.
Still rocking the work pants but wearing a dress watch hanging out with my buddy Webb.
