This Sorry looking Junghans Is fully wound, not running and in need of some cosmetic attention.The movement looks to be in great shape. This watch deserved a replaited so I send it of to replateit.com in Canada.
Movement dial is in good condition, but the browning of the varnish dose not look nice on the white dial.There is a little corrosion on the dial side of the base plate.I have removed the balance from the movement.I remove the cap jewel holding the second arbor in place.First problem I discovered is that the spring that should be underneath the sweep second arbor has been placed on top of the arbor. This will jam the movement.Gear train visible.Old mainspring is still nice and will be reused after being cleaned.There is corrosion on the sett lever that I will clean off with a glass brush.All the parts spread out after being cleaned.I clean and varnish the dial applying new luminous compound.As the pivots where worn I change the balance staff. I also straightened the hairspring, as it was a little deformed close to the stud.Testing that the balance moves free.Mainspring back in the barrel.Gear train is back in the movement.You need to maneuver the train bridge it in place so that the second wheel falls in the slot for the sweep second hand pivot.The movement is almost finished and is only missing the balance.The corrosion on the dial side has cleaned up very nicely and is ready for the dial.The dial and hands back in place.The movement in the freshly replated case is simply beautiful.Performance is excellent.A shot of the caseback demonstrates the amazing work from replateit.com Note he unusual lugs.This watch looks amazing. It actually looks so good, that my master Christian decided to buy this Meister for his private collection!
