Quite happy with this, I have read this dial was available as a spare from the manufacturer for 'repairs' before it was released on new watches, so I think it's quite a good choice as a 'rescue' dial.

Date snapped over bang on midnight so not a bad job.

Morning,

For today, an Eska, the name derived phonetically from the initials of the maker, Sylvan Kocher. The stainless steel case suggests that in its day this old fellow, whilst certainly not the richest, wasn't necessarily the poorest kid on the block either.

Dating from the 1940s and driven by a 17j AS 1172/1173 bumper.

Regards.

The size of yours makes me feel quiet good now about the size of mine. I was starting to wonder. 

In fact mine looks huge now.
