We decided to put the project aside until I felt ready to tackle the problem myself. Unfortunately, I did not take a picture of the watch before taking it out of the case.
Movement is in very good condition besides a broken winding stem. When I remove the top cap jewel I manage to break the shock spring. To replace the shock spring you need to remove the balance from the balance cock. When I was fixing the balance back on to the balance cock, my hand slipped and the screwdriver went through the hairspring bending it out of shape.I fix the balance to some rodiko so that I can reshape the hairspring.Here is the balance after mending it with two special hairspring tweezers.Not much dirt on this movement at all. Only specks of grease around the winding pinion.The mainspring looks good and goes back in to the movement after cleaning and greasing.The movement looks almost new when putting it back togetherBack in the case and looking great with a new winding stem and crown.I’m very happy with this result.The dial and hands are in really good condition and with a new crystal this watch just looks and feels great.
