David sent in this great looking Roamer – you just have to love the case, dial and hands. All in pretty good condition, but it needs a service. The crystal is also a bit scratches, so that will get a polish, too.
The case back is held in place by four screws.
The case back comes out of the case with the crystal and everything, so there will be a split winding stem.
The amplitude is very low, so the movement definitely needs a service.
The wheel train.
The ETA 2789-1 has a day and date display.
The new mainspring goes into the barrel, after having applied the usual braking grease to the barrel wall.

Good old ETA never disappoints!
The bottom plate comes back together.
With the crystal polished, the watch is looking very swish again!
