This Revue is not ticking and is very dirty. The case is made out of stainless steel but the Bezel is platted brass and has worn around the edges.
Dial is in excellent condition.
I lost a couple of photos from taking the watch apart.
The intermediate centre wheel is push fitted onto the third wheel and requires a special tool. I use Bergeon No: 30638
Here you can see the gear-train with the train bridge removed.
The old mainspring.
I have cleaned the movement and it’s ready to be put back together.
I see that the balance moves freely after fitting shock jewels.
New mainspring fitted into the cleaned barrel.
Clean gear-train going back into the movement.
I now put the setting/winding mechanism back together.
Movement almost back together.
I fit the balance and the movement starts running straight away.
After a little adjusting the movement is running super.
Movement is ready for the dial. Great finishes all over on this movement.
Dial and hands get some new aged compound.
Movement goes back into the case and looks great!
The bezel was restored by Replateit and the watch looks great!
Elegant yet sporty!
