Default First experience with the 4R36

And let me say I am impressed! I had a moment of panic when I got it back in one piece and it didn't start running, then I jammed the stem in and realized that it hacked! Exciting.... I got this from Ramon in an SNZH case that had apparently been run over.

All I had to do was dissassemble the movement and pick all the pieces of glass out of it, then reassemble (and spin the bezel on the lathe a little bit). Internally the 4R36 very very similar to a 7S26 but I think the finish is just a little nicer. It reminds me in fact of the 7S55 that I had for many tears. AT any rate, it was no issue to tear it down and rebuild without ever having seen one before, it's just that similar to the 7SXX. And the added feature are oh so nice....
