I changed into my Strela earlier for the hazardous jobs involving water splashes, and finished off my cleaning with a go at this crystal with polywatch, but although there are some scratches still visible, I think I can see some 'crazing' too thanks to the strong sunlight, which spells the end of the crystal probably, when it goes for service.

Morning,

A steel-cased Türler for today, running on a 15j AS 1203 and probably from around 1950.

The days are long gone when this now-patinated example would have been a fresh-faced advert for the eponymous Zurich jewellery business, but it is what it has become over the past 70 years or so, and makes no apologies for that.

Regards.

A beautiful watch, and I hope my children remember me fondly wearing my watches after I'm gone (although a couple of them seem like the type to just sling them on EBAY before I'm even cold, so keep a close eye on the obituaries if you fancy a bricey bargain!)
