Default 7006-5049 - Completed

Next up on the bench is this unusual NOS sample case build. This one will be a bit easier as it already has the crown, dial, and hands.

7006-5049


I should be able to build a movement out of these spare parts.

Wow thats nice, where do you sniff out these gems Jerry?

That mainplate in the plastic box is a 7009/19. i do have the correct 7005/6 mainplate if you want it.
Best put the right mainplate in, or you'll put it all together and then get some smart arse like me saying it aint all original

Thank you for the offer Ivor, i appreciate it. I do have more spares to choose from.

There were several sample cases listed on eBay so I picked up a few to build. Thanks for pointing out that main plate, it's now moved in with other 7009 parts. It still has the signed train bridge on it, I would have spotted it. The main build is in the tin, most if not all the parts are in there.

The other pic is another NOS case for a build. I'd have that one done but I need a 0903 Day wheel. The one I have has the SUN completely worn off. I don't know how that happens with these, it seems to be pretty common.
.

This is for another day when I can find that day wheel.

Got the pieces sorted and laid out


All cleaned and backside assembled and running


Numbers aren't bad for a preliminary test. I'll let it run down, then finish the frontside and test it again.

I got the movement completed this morning and hope to have it all assembled by this evening. It's still running from the full wind I gave it 2 nights ago. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the case for it. Usually these sample cases are bare, just the dial, hands, crown, and cut up day/date wheels with a piece of each taped to the back of dial. This one has a complete uncut stem, full date wheel, and the casing ring too.

Finished it up and had no strap/bracelet that looked good with it, except this vintage Muraman chain link. It definitely added to that 70's funk.

Thanks Ivor. I'm not sure what this one came with. It's an odd 17mm and I can't find anything that goes with it. More than likely I'll be ordering a leather strap for it, black lizard maybe.

Lovely dial and a unique bracelet. I think it's a match!

Nice job there Jerry.
That bracelet would have been right at home in a 70’s discotheque
