Christopher sent me this Longines for a service. The watch randomly stops, and doesn’t wind properly.
As you can see from the photos, there is a bit of varnish missing from the dial at 6 o’clock, but there isn’t much I can do about that.
The very nice looking L847.4 movement.
A very thin and elegant movement.
Having taken the movement apart and having cleaned it, I start off with a new mainspring.
The balance jewels are put into place and oiled.
The movement is beating again.
With a healthy amplitude and very stable beat rate.
Now I can put the bottom plate back together.
The movement is cased and put on the timegrapher for the final adjustment.
A very classy, understated manual wind Longines.
