Like new! Service Eterna 1408U

P1100614This Eterna has probably never been serviced before, the case has never been polished and it still features the original crystal.

P1100615

Movement is in excellent condition.

P1100628

Not too bad considering it probably never had a service.

P1100629

Like the day it left the factory.

P1100631

I take apart the setting/winding mechanism.

P1100632

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.

P1100633

Old mainspring.

P1100926

Movement taken apart and cleaned.

P1100928

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

P1100929

I put the gear train back in place.

P1100931

I fit the setting/winding mechanism.

Eterna calibre 1408

Movement back together and ticking. The Eterna 1408 is such a nice movement.

P1100934

Watch preforming  very well.

P1100935

Dial and hands go back onto the movement.

Movement goes back into the case and looks beautiful.

P1100940

I polish up the original crystal and the watch looks as good as it preforms.

This watch is a pure statement of elegance.
