That's a handy trick using the toothpick to get the pusher gaskets over the ridges. Thank you.

Default Finished

Yesterday my new parts arrived from the Philippines (Anthony Plaza very kind ebay seller): mainspring, glass, and also transmission wheel some screws, ... . I also got a new pawl lever from the UK (the parts for the auto winding where okay but meanwhile I had used them for my Pogue).
With the gaskets from VTA down under it becomes an international watch, but still all original

It was really a big job for me to put it all back together. In particular the screws ... they had moved a little bit between the basket compartments ...

I have still a dial screw missing (022761) that I have to find, but to my surprise everything is working so very happy !!!

I will post some more pictures later maybe somebody can have advantage of them one day.

I consider subscribing to the watchmaker class to learn things properly ... they start with a year of big clocks ... thinking about it ...
