Movement Looks OK (to My Untrained Eye)
In Response To: Re: Might be "Too Far Gone" ()

I am not a watchmaker, but the movement looks OK . . . relatively clean and fresh looking.

It's strange -- the usual approach is that when you see a dial / hands / case that seems to have lived a hard life, you would expect the movement to be in similar condition, but this movement looks considerably better than the other elements of the watch.

Good luck with the restoration project!!



: thanks for the advice. it looks like I could source a replacement
: dial, pusher, and chronograph needle for about 1000 USD. I asked
: for a movement photo which is below. Would you say the movement
: looks as it should for this model?
