Last year TheTigerUK gave me, among other things, a good 6309-729x case.
Well, that just begged to be filled and populated.
I had a 6319 movement from a dress watch that was dredged up from the deep by Ramon and was in a lot of 4 such pieces. The 6319 was completely torn down, cleaned, inspected, had two parts replaced, was lubed and reassembled and waited for further use.
John's case was bare bones and even had the click ball tube all nicely cleaned out. It now houses a piece of spring bar spring and a Bic pen ball(works beautifully).
I had another Ramon 6309-7290 treasure that someone had let the ocean into and it provided a decent chapter ring along with the crystal, crystal gasket, crystal retainer ring, case back and a usable bezel(insert may get replaced). I couldn't use the donor case as the crown tube looked like the end of an exploded musket barrel
so all those parts were swapped. The OEM, Japan dial which is now on my other 6309 left me with only an AM dial for the time being.
So, with everything all assembled and the 'new' 6319 motor; this is what I have now...a perfectly working and functional watch...
The next time I have the lume kit out, I will redo the hands on this one and the other one.[size=78%] [/size]
