Torsten from Hong Kong sent this watch in. It’s in need of a service, and the case is badly damaged, and the gold plating has come off in places.
The dial and hands are in super condition, so it’s well worth investing a bit of money in the case.
This photo shows the damage and the missing plating in full glory. I take the movement out, and send the case off to Peter from Replateit.com. He is in Canada, but if you want it done right, that doesn’t matter.
Not only the case needs some attention, the movement could do with a service as well.
The Junghans movement has pretty complex calendar works.
The auto winder is unidirectional.
No lack of parts for an automatic day/date.
The base movement back together. I won’t get into too much detail, as there is already a more detailed post about this movement.
Not bad for a first adjustment.
Peter did an absolutely stunning job – the case couldn’t look better.
What a stunning watch! And so retro – prepare to grow some sideburns!
Torsten sent me this shot of the watch on his wrist:
