This lovely Seamster is running but the hour and minute hands are not moving. This is due to the cannon pinion being loose. Other than being very dirty, this watch looks very good!
Case back is super tight and I do not want to risk scratching the excellent case back!
Nothing better than finding a movement in good condition!
Dial is in very good condition! All the compound is still solid and aged nicely. So I will leave it as is.
I start taking the movement apart.
Here you can see the gear train layout.
Mainspring in the barrel.
Movement has been cleaned and is ready to be put back together.
Mainspring oiled and put into the barrel.
I see that the balance moves freely after fitting the shock jewels.
Gear train back in the movement looking like new.
I start putting the setting/winding mechanism in place.
I have tightened the canon pinion and put the setting/winding mechanism in place.
Now the movement is put back together and ticking!
Very nice performance.
Movement ready for dial and hands.
Dial and hands go back onto the movement.
That is just beautiful;)
A very popular classic!
