Congrats on a such a fine watch sir.Thanks again - look forward to wearing this one out. Now I have to learn to use a slide rule >>>>>>>>>>>>
Thanks Jon. The 6138 series movements already employ a lower arbor port jewel housed in the calendar plate on the calendar side of the movement. This particular movement was well maintained or just had low miles on it as the movement was very shiny and showed very little wear. No, I did not jewel the upper arbor port and left things alone. The watch runs fantastic.Once again a great thread for a great read and a great end result. The owner has himself a true powerhouse of a vintage time peice and great conversation starter too !
I am amazed by the timegrapher trace, these old 61XXs are so well designed. Did you have to jewel the barrel arbor John ?
Great restoration. The watch looks amazing.Final Assembly
