I bought this watch just before departing to the watchmaker school in Denmark. The watch was supposed to have been newly serviced. The movement looks to be in excellent shape.I start by removing the rotor.The “floating” rubber ring that the movement sits in is still soft after 40 years. This ring was meant as extra sock protection.Dial is in really great shape.I remove the date ring so it won’t get scratched while dismantling the rest of the movement. I remove the winding mechanism. Here you can see the auto winder gears. There is some serious dirt on that reduction wheel! I doubt this watch had just been serviced when I bought it. Not that it matters that much too me;)I remove the balance.I remove the train bridge. A good upgrade from the calibre:25-65 is that the barrel pivot holes are now jewelled.The old mainspring looks okay.Everything is clean and ready for reassembling.Mainspring is back in the barrel looking pretty fresh!I put the cap jewel back in the balance and test that it swings freely. The barrel bridge is back in place.I make sure everything moves freely before putting the pallet back in place.Ratchet driving wheel, ratchet wheel and crown wheel back in place.The Auto reversing wheel has an inner pinion. It is important it goes back the right way.Self winding mechanism back on the movement.Winding, setting and date mechanism back on the bottom plate.I have polished the hands ever so lightly and applied new luminous compoundHands back on the dial. I have applied new luminous compound on the dial and hands.I’m sorry there is no before picture, but I can guarantee you the result is considerably better;)The case should both have a polished and sanded surface.I start of by masking the parts so that I can preserve (in this case make new) sharp edges. Christian has a good article on case polishing 3 hours later and I put the movement back in the case.This is one funky beast!Side shot of the case.I do think the extra case work was worh it;)The famous turtle case back. If you want to read up on the history of the watch, here is a good article.
