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.
