I've been a lurker here, but I just pulled the trigger on my dream watch...a Benrus Sky Chief with Valjoux 72 movement. An Ebay acquisition. Here are pictures in its current state:

I intend to have Jesse at JHFineWatches do the restoration. Fortunately the watch and chronograph functions work fine and the face is not flaking at all. I look forward to a new crystal, case polish, relume the hour and minute hands, and freshen the other hands. I don't intend to mess with the numbers.

I will post 'after' pictures in 2 months.

This forum has been so helpful to me...thank you all!

My daily watch is a Tissot PRC200 with leather strap. I AM a sucker for black dial chronographs!

A BIG Congrats Ken!!!!!
Welcome to the American.

THAT is a Grail that many of us have wished for and obtained...

Here is a little club that has developed here over the years:

The choice of Jesse is a really good one. He is the best around by far and the man
for a job like this one.

Again... A BIG congrats on a fantastic Sky Chief!!!:thumbup1:
