New Stormking I Dial

#1 Post by GreenBayStamps » Sat Jul 14, 2018 6:21 am

This morning was a real surprise for me. I went to the mailbox knowing there was a 735 movement with a Stormking I dial and hands waiting for me. It was a $46 purchase with free delivery om eBay.

I was not expecting much, the photos were bad.

Well, was I surprised! A nearly perfect dial with an ever so slight burn below the delta. I have been in possession of the case with a burned dial for about 3 years. From time to time thought about peddling it, just not to my standards!

These are uncommon, not many of these 18 KT gems around, the watch was $200 in 1955.

So I share the 55' Stormking 735 movement with the improved dial. Someone sold the case off and peddled the near perfect dial. I will be the caretaker for the near future. :)

"With the added benefit of the special dedication on the back!" ;)

If you would like to use the photo in the library, please feel free to do so.
