Guenter, my first customer from Austria, sent in this Constellation for a service.
Let’s see what the movement is up to…
The amplitude is way too low, and the movement is too fast.
The case back with the Geneva Observatory. Lots of scratch marks where people have slipped trying to open the case.
The usual dirt under the bezel ring.
Looks like the dial has been restored before.
I start taking the movement apart.
All the parts clean and ready for reassembly.
As usual, I start off with a new mainspring.
The base movement back together.Freshly put together, I already have an amplitude of over 250 degrees. Within a couple of hours, this will have gone up to well over 270.
The bottom plate is in very good shape as well, no rust, no damage.
The auto winder bridge is back together.
The cleaned case gets a new Omega crystal.
Back together, and looking gorgeous!
