A 7545-7030, bought for spares.

It was sold as not working.

Found the reason, a damaged coil. Had to use x15 to find the minute screwdriver dink which is unrepairable. The circuit block is good though so worth the 16 paid.

The blue tray is one of the waterboards giveaways last year. They are intended to trap sludge in the sink but its about 100mm diameter and made of rubber so ideal for watch parts as well.

$10 is ridiculously cheap and a VG blag.

Yes, I couldn't pass it up for $10. Got it assembled to the point I can test run it. Been ticking away nicely for about a half hour at the moment. I see your 'donor' watch is being restored, lol. I suffer from the same affliction.

The 6119C is finished and running like a champ. Next up is a 6349 with a broken 4th wheel pinion.

Managed to get this one back together. I am using a NOS coil block at the moment for testing.

The dial is not brilliant but hey it's only a spare parter.

I've never done a 6349 but plenty of 6309s. How does it differ from a 6309?

I don't think it differs other than a higher jewel count.

Thanks Guy, I'm guessing the pinion is the difference to accommodate for the diashock jewel type?

Just noticed the canon pinion at the far right.... it's late and can't sleep..

Is there a minute wheel bridge in the pic or is it not on that version of the 6119?

The minute wheel bridge is there, middle of the pic. I know the feeling, I should be in bed now to get up for work in 5 and 1/2 hours, but just can't right now. Gonna try anyways.
