Movement is in excellent condition.
Not too bad considering it probably never had a service.
Like the day it left the factory.
I take apart the setting/winding mechanism.
Here you can see dirt underneath the crown wheel. A good example of why one should service watches even though they look good on the outside.
Movement taken apart and cleaned.
I fit the balance jewels and see that the balance moves freely.
I put the gear train back in place.
I fit the setting/winding mechanism.
Movement back together and ticking. The Eterna 1408 is such a nice movement.
Watch preforming very well.
Dial and hands go back onto the movement.
I polish up the original crystal and the watch looks as good as it preforms.
Fantastic! Simple beauty! I like complications but my favorites are these simple timkeepers and this one is as it was they day it came out of the box, from the looks! Great job! Mitka, did you do anything with the lume?
Thanks for sharing!
The lume is original. It was stable and looked fresh, so I did not touch it:)
