Anders from Norway sent this Lemania over. Initially, it was meant as a source of spare parts for his Lemania triple-date (the dial of that is being restored atm), but then he found another donor, and decided to save this one, which can only be a good thing. I won’t fill you in on the historical detail, and will leave that to Anders to post himself, as he did the research.
The movement isn’t that dirty, and things are looking good.
The dial shows its age, but in a very nice way! No damage, just a bit of subtle discolouration.
This looks familiar to those who like Omega movements, and there are reasons for that. Let Anders fill you in later …
The old mainspring.
Ready for the cleaning machine.
The first movement to get the new Elma RM-90 treatment!
Epilame treatment for pallet fork, escape wheel and cap jewels.
All the parts clean and ready for reassembly.
The new mainspring.
I put the balance jewels back in.
The gear train in place.
And the top plate is complete, and the balance swinging.
Now for the bottom plate.
Back into the case.With a new crystal, a great looking watch!
