    WRUW April 2018 starts here:



    Welcome my vintage friends, it seems to fall to me to start the wruw. well think it's on with this Festina am starting to have doubts about it being all original as it has always had the Tenchos on the back plate, never thought much gold hands dial marking and a silver case.

    mean it fit's so well together but still wondering maybe a re-case will look into it as Technos and Festina was in the same village ? so their is maybe a tie in somewhere .. not that I have seen another one of these . so rarer or marriage I wonder ? ..


    Hope the month ahead goes well for you all.

    As always Ismy

    Here is another example. Sorry for the bad white balance, but here is an example of a silver dial with chrome case and gold markers and hands. Great light watch to wear!

    well the dial on mine is gold and so is the hands and the markings so the few I have seen have all had gold cases so wondering if it was ripped out the case for the gold then someone re-cased it in a ss case

    Mine is definitely chrome plate, and its condition is such that I am willing to think it was the original case.
