    I had it reconditioned at a local jeweler in Mclean, Virginia. The reconditioning did not last long and I am sure I paid too much. One of the chrono buttons is dead and the second hand has fallen off again. If you find a specialist, who does quality work, please post the contact information.

    Thanks

    My father was an office manager and was really into nice pens and nice watches. Before my father passed from cancer when I was really young he had a nice watch. They had to sell it due to medical bills. From his pictures it looks like a Rolex Submariner. So ever since I've always wanted one. Someday I'll get one and can pass it on to my kids as a family heirloom from father to son. I've always had the idea of when we "eventually" have a child that I'd buy them a decent starter watch when they graduated high school. And if taken care of I'd pass down my Rolex when they get their first real professional adult job. Maybe some day I'll get to do that.

    @Sweeperdk: is that ^ a fixed bezel on that watch? It sure is good looking! Wear and use it for many years in good health!

    L'chaim!

    I love it, but I think I'd love it a little more in a 40mm instead of the 42mm. Dang that watch bug!

    My wife gave me a 1945 Atacama for an anniversary present one year. I like it a lot. My eyeballs can actually read the gigantic numbers with ease. (Not so much the itty bitty dials.)
