Default 6106-8207 DX- Completed

I've been meaning to get around to this one. It's in really good condition overall. Just needs a cleaning and a service. It runs for a few minutes and stops. The close up shots of the dirty dried oils on the jewels are more than likely the cause. Since I'm waiting for a crystal to finish the 6119 Sports I posted, I figured I'd get this one done.

I have the same watch but didn't know the model number until now. I can just make out the 6106 on the case back. Unfortunately the dial was shot so it's now got a gold 6119-8490T dial.

Completed this one and the numbers look pretty good. I was having an issue with the balance which straightened out after 2 cleanings. The last cleaning was with a small soft brush, the whole movement was pretty dirty but came out clean.
