very well known in SE Asia, so you can find rare models if you are vigilant! hahaa! Old 1980s Casios are another popular model there.

just be careful when loosening that little screw for the stem release. If you undo it too far, you will have to go in from the dial side to put it back together

You did good and it should turn into a nice piece that you fall in love with...well; at least, it will have a special place in your collection

I suck at detail work. I have seen what Al does and I cannot fathom how he can do such detailed work. It is a skill that I respect greatly.
