I would like some advice about this Ham 950B.The serial number is S10736, which I believe dates to 1951. The case serial number is K346232, which I also believe dates to 1951. I bought this off of EBAY, non-working. The dial I believe is a "151" numerical?? Is this dial correct for a 950B? I've looked at the dial research information and the dial is not listed as one of the examples. I was thinking about replacing it with a 23 JEWEL Melamine dial, if I can find one. I think it's original because the case halves were practically glued on with years of gunk. It took some torque to remove them from the watch. Any thoughts?

Congrats on the buy - John... The dial cleaned up very well from the listing on ebay (was watching the listing, too). That is a hard dial to find that is not riddled with hairlines. As Gary stated - I would just leave her as is. Looks good and something a little different. The crown looks like new!
