Christie sent this one in, and it has problems stopping and she suspects the auto winder.
This is enough reason for the watch to stop from time to time. A very low amplitude, and the watch is too slow. My guess here is that a good clean and a new mainspring will resolve the issues with this watch.
The set lever spring is broken, meaning that the winding stem won’t snap into plate properly. It’s available, but not cheap.
The top plate comes apart.
Having taken the watch apart, I’m ready for the cleaning machine.
The barrel gets a new mainspring.
The top plate is back together and the balance is swinging.
Compared with what I saw before, this is pretty good.
With a new crystal, we’re back in business.
