WWII Military Pilot’s Watch
Before and After
The picture below shows the dial side of the movement with the broken set lever.
Parts for this movement are no longer available so a new part had to be hand made.
This picture shows the completed movement with the new set lever installed. The watch now winds and sets as it should.
These pictures shows the finished movement. Restoration included servicing the movement, making a new set lever, installing a new mainspring and replacing the upper and lower hole jewels for the balance. Both balance pivots were bent and had to be straightened. The ratchet wheel had three teeth missing and was also replaced. The movement now runs and keeps time within +5 seconds a day.
Completed movement cased and ready to be returned to its owner.
