I got this from a good customer. He sent me this and a Seiko Diamatic from his brother.
It was a bit shocking to see how much rust it had inside.
After I took the balance and pallets out I had to use my screwdriver to wedge the movement ring out from that side of the movement as well.
A good going over with my scratch brush and soaking parts in rust killer has removed it and I've managed to free up the stem pinion.
It's sad a couple of teeth on the inner bezel are munted.
I'll have the replacement plastic date wheel in stock.
I had replaced the glass before I got into it to show him how it would look.
I hope I can bend the clasp tabs over to make it click properly.

Case etc de rusted and cleaned. I will lightly refinish it and the bracelet.

I had to spend some time getting rid of rust under and freeing up the stop/go leaver but it's fine now.

Movement going well (to appease VE I put all the screws in!). I try out the time train only for a couple of days then add the chrono work, time up and add date work, dial and test on my bench before casing up and trying on my winder.

I've finally finished it.

Remove rust, overhaul, glass, replaced munted date wheel, new seals (not glass seal of course) and find and sort out a replacement clasp!

Normally I'd do my best to refinish the case and remove scratches from the back but he wanted it left as is - which isn't so nice but saves me time ;-)
