Alarm Chronograph with EL Backlight

After ca. 9 years the blue plastic turned brittle
and could be removed fairly easy. Please note the removed plastic from the bezel, even the crown and of course the watch band. I will use this watch for a project. I decided to keep the "ribs and bones" from the original.
And a hint for you: if you see 10 year old "New Old Stock" watches containing plastic parts on eBay etc., be cautious!
