This Alpina is in very good condition for being a 60+ year old watch, but is in need of a routine service.
I always appreciate a dust cover adding extra protection to the movement.
The movement looks to be in very good condition.
Amplitude is a little low and a service is in order.
I think it’s a long time since this was last serviced as someone fitted a lead case back gasket.
Hands and dial removed, all looking very tidy.
Gear train visible after removing the train bridge.
Even the old mainspring looks clean.
Movement cleaned and ready to be put back together.
I see the balance moves freely after fitting the jewels.
Movement almost back together.
Setting/winding mechanism coming back together.
Movement ready for dial and hands.
The dials have some tiny marks, but is in very good shape.
The 592 are solid performers and sometimes it’s nice to have a straight forward service job.
Great 1940’s watch.
Even though the case is only 33mm w/o crown the beefy lugs makes it feel massive on my wrist.
