Elgin Model 1869 Cavalier 1935 Back on my wrist

This is the second of the three pieces that have been serviced and repaired by Greg Ward.
Thanks must go again to Kurt for finding me a crystal.

Again this one was in a bit of a state and Greg said it was in a poor condition inside.
" The 17 jewel model was rusted like heck inside with the setting gears moulded into one nasty lump. Took some time and a lot of releasing fluid to get them out and clean them up. All good now."

I am very pleased with how it has turned out looks good on my wrist and I love the detailing to the case, and those hands are just so delicate.

Another one saved.
