We have polished the watch, clean the mechanical calibre, and it is now perfectly restored.
This is Cartier Tank Franciase for man or woman..
I have seen a lot of pilot wearing Breitling. Usually they are big, complicated on the dial, a lot of functions that they know me, but I do not know them.. This is a typical chrono with traditional design of placing the three indicators in the triangular shape of position.
Beautifully polished bezel and strap...good for man with a large wrist...but not for A typically stocky Chinese like me...
This is not a pure gold version, instead this is vermeil with 925 Silver case and plated with 20 micron 18 CT Gold.
It is an elegant small watch for woman. I had another smaller one made with 18 CT Solid gold, but sold some three years ago...
If you do not mind the use of quartz circuit board inside the helmetically seal Oyster case to be your watch, this is your choice. It is rare as 98% of Rolex lover uses Mechanical watch movement only.
I like the case design as it is rugged and heavy duty.

I was shocked to see that it was not a genuine Rolex... But I had to scrutinize carefully before I told him the fact.
These are the picture I took on his watch.
The "Rolex" font is a bit not same as the original, you may compare with the Original Picture of Milgauss from Rolex Website.
The fake one does not look as shinny as the genuine one.
The above picture is the fake Rolex friend of mine bought somewhere
The Gap between Letter L and E are so close, not as the genuine one that has a bigger gap
The X of Rolex has a slimmer slash on the genuine one and the fake one has both slash of similar width
The Rolex Oyster laser making inside the bezel is not as deep and as clear as the genuine.
