I picked up a 6139-7002 a couple of weeks back.

Opening it up the other night showed what looked like rust deposit on the autowind framework



but a closer inspection showed that there was something amiss with the transmission wheel. I assumed at first that the bearing hole (metal bush) was very badly worn, but on removing the transmission wheel I found this



here's what a good wheel should look like (on the right)




how about that for wear!!!!!!

what I thought was rust is actually iron filings.

If the rest of the movement is as poorly maintained, you may have your work cut out for you. (Note the apparent autoweight rubbing on the bridge). Good luck!
