Did I finally catch a Marlin?

Recommended Posts

What's the deal with Marlins, anyway ? Are they rare or something ? I've seen some on local advert websites... I've also seen these watches being mentioned in articles and stuff.

Are there certain ones that are more collectable than others ?

Just trying to catch up. :)

And these two arrived today (2024 2464):

They didn't run when they first arrived but they do now, keeping excellent time. I've made an initial effort on the crystals but you're right, they need some care. The dial on the '64 with the black bands is lightly stained, it's somewhat visible in the photo around the 6 o'clock marker. Do you happen to know of a way to safely clean the dial?

They look like keepers  to me.
