Someone has been pretty generous with the luminous compound, and the acrylic crystal is scratched and discoloured.
Some of the plating has come off the case.
Rust and dirt – the watch doesn’t work any more.
The bottom plate got its share of dirt as well.
Balance and pallet fork removed.
Nice details, like the click spring, which is a proper spring and not made of wire.
All parts ready for the cleaning machine.
I polish all the screw heads.
And the bottom plate gets the same treatment.
Regulator and top jewel cap back in place.
Time for a new crystal.
That looks better – especially on the inside!
With the mainspring only slightly wound, the timegrapher image after adjusting. Perfect.
