A great looking Memovox in good condition! Patrick brought it in for a service, so let’s have a look inside.
Even though the movement is beating, the timegrapher can’t pick up the signal.
The dial has two parts – the outer for the time, and the inner dial for the alarm time.
The bottom plate with the inner alarm dial.
Movement with balance jewels removed.
Taking apart the top plate.
The bottom plate with the alarm mechanism.
This is the best constructed alarm watch that I have seen so far!
All clean and ready to go.
I start off with the two barrels. I couldn’t get hold of replacement springs, so I use the old ones, that are still in good condition.
The movement comes back together.The gear train in place.
The left banking pin is missing its top, and the pallet fork goes to far to that side. I turn it and reshape it a bit, and it stops the pallet fork properly again.
That looks good – the mainspring is still spritely.
Beautiful bottom plate with the alarm mechanism.
The alarm dial goes back on.
And then the dial itself.
Cased, and looking great!Lovely little watch!
