The movement also needs a service, and I get stuck in right away.
The calibre 269 is a simple, but very nice movement. No date, no automatic winding, just a plain old solid movement.
The case has taken a bit of a battering over time, but that is to be expected considering the age of the watch.
I take apart the movement.
Everything ready for the cleaning machine.
The new mainspring is here, and I put together the movement awaiting the return of the dial and hands from David Bill and Sons.
The movement is back together.
First image on the timegrapher – and it’s very good. I will do a final adjustment before closing the case back.
As usual, David Bill & Sons have done a great job.
