I’m very partial to Alpina watches. Both the design and the movements have a simplicity and clarity that I like. This is very much true for this little gem, that Anders from Norway sent in.
Having removed the case back, there is an extra lid to protect the movement. And yes, I like those very much, too.
Just to see how things are, I pop the watch on the timegrapher.
Ouch, high time for a service!
So far, not too much dirt.
The gear train.
And a very simple bottom plate.
The grease in the barrel has solidified completely.
A simple movement with not too many parts.
Epilame treatment for the pallet fork, escape wheel and cap jewels.
And the movement is coming back together.
And it’s ticking!
Not bad compared to what we saw before!
The bottom plate is back together.
And the movement goes into the case.
The back gets a new gasket.
And we’re back in business. What a beauty. White dial and blued hands.Now you want one too, right?
