From the heady days of highly jewelled pin-pallet movements, we have this Buler watch here that Richard sent in. The lume on the hands is breaking off, and the watch doesn’t work any more. Continue reading
Another one of Joris’ watches, and a stunning ladies’ Junghans it is. The watch is running fast, and it’s time for a service. Continue reading
Another day, another Junghans… This one is from Torsten’s collection, and I just love the dial and hands! The dial isn’t where it should be, and the crown is pulled out, the lugs are bent, and the case needs replating. Apart from that, it’s in good condition 😉 Continue reading
