Timex Model 40 - 2 becomes 1

#1 Post by JerseyMo » Sun May 27, 2018 12:06 pm

picked up a 1970 Electric Diver the other day but, it had issues. Which were a cracked stem retention clip and loose fixed magnet.
So to the part pile I go and find another model 40. The first one I find also had the fixed magnet loose and the hairspring is twisted and the coil is done.
The solution? Make 2 into 1.
