Service Cyma calibre 414

P1090608

At one point in the 1930’s Cyma decided to upscale in the quality of their movements. They used an in-house shock protection system called the Cyma-Flex and most were beautifully decorated. This watch is in dirty, but good condition and will get a full service.

P1090610

Movement looks to be in very good condition.

P1090611

The dial is in good original condition. The old compound is very sable and looks nice so I won’t mess around with that!

P1090612

I remove the dial and hands to reveal a very nicely decorated base plate.

P1090613

If you look at the crown wheel it has a little mark to show you it unscrews clockwise.

P1090614

Old mainspring.

P1090675

I have cleaned the movement and it’s ready to come back together.

P1090678

I fit the cap jewels and see that the balance moves freely.

P1090676

I fit the old mainspring.

P1090677

The click spring is securely fitted with a screw.

P1090679

Here you can see the gear train back in the movement.

P1090685

Movement back together and ticking!

P1090681

The modern oils are too fine and too much power is hitting the balance, resulting banking.

P1090682

I find another mainspring that is 0.01 mm thinner.

P1090684

That’s more what I want to see!

P1090687

I fit the setting/winding mechanism back in place. All the springs are machined and very nice.

P1090688

Dial and hands go back onto the movement.

P1090689

Movement goes back into the case.

P1090690

I always appreciate a good dust cover!

Simply a great looking wacth!

 

It’s special to wear something that probably has not been used since before I was born!
