as a point of interest, the little brass bit is a contact for trggering the dive mode, when the watch gets wet the water creates a circuit between the case and the brass triggering the mode Wink

Thanks, that's down to it not being worn regularly & having a careful owner of course. Very Happy

I hate to think what normally happens to 0020s. Shocked

Well didn't buy it on eBay but bought it years ago from a dealer. Hopefully that's a positive sign and the watch is genuine. Shocked

Glad all is ok with the watch.  

Not come across a "dead glow worm" before lol! but it's a good way to describe the lume strength. Very Happy
