The crystal is shot, some of the luminous dots have come off the dial, and the minute hand has lost its luminous compound as well. The movement also wants a service, so let’s get this going!
Having taken the dial and hands off, I send them off to David Bill and Sons.
A simple, clean, well constructed movement.
There aren’t too many parts, as it’s a hand-winding, no date movement.
The new mainspring goes into the barrel.
Almost ready to put the dial on.
I press the hour hand on.
With a new crystal, the watch looks pretty snazzy again! Nice and thin, a simple design, and a beautiful watch.
