    Did you get a good look at the lot with all the original drawings/specs in it? Maybe there was something in there.

    I would just use a bit of Rodico and nothing more, it's a nice dial with expected patina. Definitely not saliva. It is a mix of complex enzymes (the beginnings of your digestion system in your...

    Good spot with the brushing of the case. I reckon this is a poorly conceived re-issue all around.
