Service: Lemania calibre 3000

Lemania calibre 3000

 

This Lemania is in exceptionally good condition and could do with a routine service. 

P1030442

I have removed the dial and hands and everything looks very nice.

P1030443

I lost a couple of photos while taking the movement apart, but here you can see the base movement after removing the balance cock.

P1030453

And here is the gear train layout of the calibre 3000

P1030454

Old mainspring in the barrel.

P1030460

All parts are cleaned and ready to be put back together.

P1030461

Clean mainspring in the barrel.

P1030462

I see that the balance moves freely after fitting the shock jewels.

P1030463

Setting/winding mechanism comes back together.

P1030464

Base movement almost back together.

P1030473

The old luminous compound was very brittle, but still retained a nice colour. So I decided to reinforce the compound with a thin layer of new compound on the under side.

P1030475

Dial and hands go back onto the movement.

P1030476

Movement goes back into the case looking great. The balance regulator is on the last bar towards slow, but as it’s keeping excellent time and is well poised I will leave this one as it is.

P1030481

Just like it was in 1966!

P1030486

Perfect watch to be worn with a shirt!
