I just got this in the mail. Then I spent 4 hours sanding and polishing each link. I didn't take it to the finest polish, but I didn't want a mirror finish. This is actually my second Accuquartz, as I bought one from oliverb that is waiting on a donor movement/coil. Anyway, here it is. It was given as a 25 year service gift to an NBC camera/production man named Robert H. Pearson who died last year at the age of 92. I looked him up. I am not sure is the seller was an estate company or family or what, but I didn't ask.
