This lovely Helvetia is running well, but there is dirt in the movement that will cause wear in the long run, so it’s important to service the watch.
Movement looks to be in top condition.
Watch looks newly serviced, but I can assure you it is not.
Dial in good condition with some patina. I like the mountain watch face logo!
Movement coming apart.
Gear train visible.
Movement cleaned and ready to be put back together.
Movement coming back together.
I like the blued decoration on the crown wheel.
Setting/winding mechanism almost back together.
Movement put back together and ticking.
It might look like when we started, but now I have peace of mind that the watch will run reliably with less risk of unnecessary wear.
All ready for a dial and hands.
Movement back in the case looking very nice!
I replaced the luminous compound on the hands with age compound that I think suits the dial much better.
Very cool watch!
