I just got this Croton Tropartic with a blue linen dial. Has an AS 1951 caliber. Haven't had time to investigate too deeply into the apparent paint loss. The seconds hand is red as on the 2nd pic; having trouble getting the color correct on the pictures. This dial is well balanced I think. 782174470_DSCN51832.thumb.JPG.f8dc8019f32fd2c6ddaff83df9e0924e.JPG692488772_20230422_2214093.thumb.jpg.12060fd9c5f4f8c39801d7b4e25acc11.jpg

This Sekonda with a Seiko day/date movement was in a bit of a state (which is why it also qualifies as a 404 club member).

The deep blue sunburst dial changes hue, depending on the light.


This is how it looked in the ebay listing, so a new crystal and a case re-finishing was needed to make it presentable.

I have to confess that I managed to crack the first replacement crystal I fitted, while re-fitting the case back.
I was too lazy to check, and find the correct die, so I used one that I assumed was big enough.
Obviously it wasn't.
We do things right 'cos we do them twice. 🙄
