I was sad to see one of my favourite watches leave the collection the other day, but I had another one hiding in my box of projects that was not running and in need of some attention.
The movement looks to be in decent condition.
The gear train looks good and not too dirty.
The reason the watch did not run was because the mainspring was broken.
After cleaning the movement I put the cap jewels back in place and see that the balance moves freely.
New mainspring in the barrel.
The movement coming back together.
The setting mechanism back in place. Everything on this movement is well made.
The watch ticks straight away as I put the balance in place. The micro regulator shows beautiful craftsmanship you could expect in much more expensive watches.
I’m happy with performance.
Movement back in the case and looking great.
I replaced the old crumbling luminous compound with new aged compound as I don’t want anything falling into the movement.
Such a lovely watch.
..great work, Mitka. Lovely watch.
