An update on the progress on chris’ watch.


Stripped down to reveal the reason for the inner rotating bezel not working, a gummed up stem/cog/spring would be the problem here. That is easy to fix…..but unfortunately, the inner ring must also have been sticky and so teeth have been stripped off it when in the zero position. That will be harder to fix, but I have something in mind to try, and now an ideal candidate!

Jobs to do here, the full works:
Strip and clean case parts, lightly polish and tidy as apropriate
Polish crystal
Re-lume dial and hands
Movement service
New gaskets all round
