I always enjoy seeing a nice Revue calibre 81. This watch was partly dismantled, but I was confident we could get a good watch out of all the parts!
I start by removing the setting/winding mechanism.
The movement is in good condition.
Here you can see the gear train layout.
Old mainspring in the barrel. It looks rather tired so I replace it with a new one after cleaning.
All the parts cleaned and ready to be put back together.
I see that the balance moves freely after fitting the cap jewels.
Everything looks much nicer after being cleaned;)
Here I’m putting the winding/setting mechanism back in place.
Movement back together and ticking.
Watch preforming very well.
Very nice watch! Hard to believe it’s from 1953!
