A Client has sent in his Conquest calibre 291 for a service and case back enamel repair. He has also added 4 extra case backs to be repaired. Continue reading
It’s well known fact the Omega Speed master was the official watch that went to the moon. But Lemania was the company that made the 321 for Omega and is almost identical to Lemania’s own chronograph movement, 2510, which is a later name for their calibre 27CH-12. This Lemania CH27, sent in by a client, has the lowest production number I have ever seen. It’s not running and has a broken stem. Continue reading
A customer has sent in his lovely Revue sport that has stopped. It has the in-house calibre MSR X1 and I suspect a service will get it running again. I’m especially happy to work on this as when I was 16 I almost bought one as I loved the design. Continue reading

It’s one of my favourite dial and case designs; 6139-8010 AD starburst blue with frost and red hands. This example is in very good original condition. It’s not running and I suspect it once received a good knock as the central second recorder has fallen off and the upper shock jewel is missing. Continue reading

The original owner of this Longines ultra-chron has sent it in to be repaired. He remembers getting it as a gift when he was 15 back in 1974! He has the choice of a Certina DS and this Longines. He was very into his model aircraft flying and the aviation fuel once leaked into the watch creating a very unique patina on the dial and hands. It’s not keeping time and needs a service.
