    Attn Der Amf

    Here is the picture of my Scrotex Marianis Trench Inhabitor (taken at a recent outing to the beach) that you requested yesterday.
    I have noted the items that need to be addressed during servicing.

    It may not look like much, but it was my first good watch, given to me by my Mum when I was 15 and I will never get rid of it.

    Restoration would violate the historical significance of this icon.

    I'm pretty sure a bit of polywatch will sort that out

    Beautiful watch! When servicing make sure the watchmaker does not replace original dial and hands if you wish for it to retain value.

    Actually a lot of collectors prefer them with the cracked crystal as well, as a vintage tool watch ought to have its life experiences visible. Documentation of how an MTI actually received its damage is also particularly sought after.

    Isn't it just that they look permanently startled?
