Andrew sent in this Fortis. The bezel is missing, so I ordered a new one from Fortis in Switzerland.
Fortis charged 48 Swiss Francs for the bezel, and my bank charged me £33 for transfer charges alone! I am not surprised, as it’s the bank that also has to fund prostitutes and crack cocaine for their ex-chairman.
Inside lurks an old friend – the ETA 2836-2.
A bit of dirt under the crown wheel.
The bottom plate with the very snappy day/date changer.
I start off with the usual new mainspring.
The base movement is back together – let’s see what it does…
That will need some adjusting.
That looks better. These ETA movements never disappoint!
I case the movement, give it a final adjustment, and waterproof test. All is well, and the watch can go back to Andrew.
