    You just apply a small amount to the crystal, then rub pretty hard with a clean cloth. Takes awhile, but the scratches disappear completely. Used it on my 1676 and 5512, too. Works like a charm.

    Not a chance, Rene. MJC, I dinged up my plexi within hours of putting it on. A little Polywatch and, viola, it's good as new. Been wearing this non-stop for a week. New favorite watch.

    Holy Crap! An extra plexi? I had no idea! Thanks for the heads (or, rather, bottoms) up!

    Sorry for the bad/dusty shots. Man, I love this thing. Have a great weekend, everyone.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll probably just have Zig service the A7753 and see how she runs...while letting someone else be the Valjoux pioneer.

    What? I gave my review, too. Seriously, it's really nice. Huge, but doesn't feel too bulky. I'll take some more pics this weekend at the EAA Fly-In in Oshkosh. Gonna have Zig service the movement (possibly throw a gen 7753 in there) and maybe lighten the shade of lume on the main hands to look more gen-like. Anyone have any other suggestions on possible mods?

    What Model Is This? I Must Have It.

    Wish I had known about this a wee bit earlier. Might've taken a shot or two. Dayyyyyytonnnnnaaaaa...

    Q&A: Why do our A7750s need a service?

    My PAM187 is on its way...already shopping around for a gen 7753 to throw in it. There are some on ebay, but if anyone has one they wanna part with...

    I've been looking hard to find something wrong with it. So far, I'm happy to report I haven't found a thing.
