It's been a while since I tinkered so I am easing back in with this 'off the beaten track 7625'

It's one of those with the small springs that if not very careful can disappear into thin or thick air. Thankfully I managed to disassemble it without losses.

Removing the movement was the first task which due to the hardened seal took a while.

Just have to wait now for the return of my U/S cleaner from Poland/Germany who knows where it went for repairs.

Good luck with the rebuild, I did one a couple of weeks ago after a long lay off. I had forgotten the date corrector can be a real PITA, especially when you cant see properly, like me. I got the other springs sussed.

I take loads of pics when doing any watch...even those I know well.

Thanks.

Plus it makes a change to have a mainframe that fits the Bergeon 4040 without any issues.

Yesterday at around 5pm dial down.
