Exceedingly rare occurrence for me, a fried breakfast, but needs must, when the devil drives us.

Had the Shark on all weekend, felt like keeping it on today, it really is my favourite but I like to wear it sparingly so as to keep it in tip top condition!

Sneaking in amongst all your other lovelies comes this 1 jewel Cimier, raised from the dead purely for its movement, a nowadays rarely-seen Lapanouse/Rego 129.

Just a ratty old pin-lever, you’ll be thinking, and you’d be mostly correct until with a tinny, and not wholly appropriate, fanfare, it reveals its little surprise party-trick  -  a date quickset mechanism using a pusher at 9. Simple but effective enough in an agricultural kind of way.

Regards.

Now with pcl's, highly polished bezel and sides and rebrushing to rest. I think ive got the look i wanted. The plating was worn. Even if it hadnt been i think i prefer the polished and brushed steel to bimetal on this. 2bceaef32d2452d9fead378246aa9c54.jpga6b034ad17a547dbf572d49bafaf288d.jpg

I have a picture in my mind of you taking a wire brush to it. 

used some special sanding pads that are for doing contours on car body work, they are a fine abrasive on a sponge backing so the follow curves but don't put too much pressure on, they work really well. 

Image result for halfords sanding pads

its come up like new in the flesh, tricks of the trade eh ;-)
