I have had a soft spot for these old Revue Sport watches partly since they have a special design and in-house movements like this little GT 56. The case was a real hassle to open, but luckily Christian managed to open it before he went on holiday.
The movement is not preforming to bad at all considering it is full of particles.
I have not seen this form of shock protection before. Just love that GT logo
Many of the screws are very tightly fastened and I’m happy non of them break as I screw them out.
Old mainspring looks to be in very good condition.
The mainspring cleaned oiled and backs in place.
I have great difficulty getting the pallet cock in place. The lower stem of the pallet is rather long causing the pivot to fall out of the jewel hole with almost no disturbance. After many tries to get it in place I find a solution in balancing the pallet with rodico.
I make sure all the rodico is removed when the pallet cock is in place.
I’m very happy getting such a good result after so much hassle getting the pallet in place.
Not looking to bad!
The dial is in good condition considering the age of this watch and deserved a new crystal as the old one was cracked. I considered applying new luminous compound to the hands but the old stuff is okay and I like keeping these watches as original as possible.
