I pulled this old friend out of the junk heap and decided to give it another chance. I put is on a $5.00 nylon band which does 2 things. 1) It keeps the base metal away from my skin, making it wearable again and 2) it gives it a really military look, which compliments the watch well.
Another important change is that I polished most of the huge scratch out of the crystal, making it look years younger. I will keep this watch as a beater until the battery goes, then it is just not worth it.
