A sad looking Seamaster in need of some TLC… Some of the luminous compound on the dial markers has come off, and the hands need some attention as well.
The movement is quite dirty as well and in need of a service.
The hands will need some serious attention as well.
I start off by removing the old luminous compound from the dial.
That already looks more civilized.
Time to take the movement apart.
The gear train on the plate.
The hands are ready for the lumionous compound.
The dial in the drying chamber to cure the compound.
I’m very happy with the result.
I’ve also re-painted the second hand, and applied new compound to the hands.
The movement parts ready to be put back together.
A new mainspring for the barrel.
The base movement is back together.
The bottom plate looks very nice again.
The automatic winder bridge is on, and I can now case the movement.
Back in the case.Not bad if you compare that with the before photo 😉
