    Back from the dead...

    Fresh in from a one year trip from ABC to IWW...all restored and serviced

    Before:












    After:









    Overall it was worth the wait and expense. A vintage diver came back from the brink and is now ready to be proudly worn again...

    Wow! Great resto, and awesome watch! i remember Scubapro watches in the 70's and 80's; I love these old divers, and I'm so glad there are folks like you who have them restored and keep them going. Nice!

    Great restoration! I also like you (?) decision to keep the "used" look (Iwould've kept lug holes intact, though).
    Wish you enjoy it for a long time!
