End of Summer Project - Monaco 1533B

Here's my latest project.

First impressions;
Movement - Cal 15 running pretty well and hasn't lost more than a minute in the last 12 hours :-)
Dial - Obvious melted gasket problem and also a bit bent around 9 o'clock.
Hands - H/M and small chrono hands are great. Sweeping seconds and chrono seconds hands are incorrect.
Case - Pretty good considering. The pushers are clearly shot and the start/stop pin had dropped inside preventing easy removal of the movement - I guess this was the cause of the bent dial(?)
Overall not too bad and providing I can source the parts, well worth fixing :-)

P.S. anyone got a spare dial?
