This is a Shockmaster with the ST96 movement (the same as the FHF55), with a central second, and no date.
I just love the dial, and it’s in pretty good shape, apart from some sticky gunk on the “8”…
Not much dirt, but I can’t wind the movement. Looks like the mainspring is broken.
Nice, clean movement construction. I do like Swiss ebauches.
The bottom plate. Lots of polished parts – a decent finish throughout.
And here is the culprit – the mainspring is broken.
With a new mainspring, I start putting the movement back together.
Nicely polished barrel and transmission wheel.
All nice and shiny and clean….
The sticky stuff on the “8” comes off with some tissue, tweezers and some methylated spirit. I have to be very careful not to get any on the dial, as that would ruin it.
Now the hands are lightly polished and go back on.
With a new crystal, the watch is back to its old glory. £15 on eBay, £15 for parts, and a couple of hours work – well worth it!
