HAVE THIS WATCH ON HOLD. ANOTHER PART BROKE. SIMPLE PART BUT SPECIALIZED PART. HAVE PLACED A LINK TO EXPLANATION. PART NOT AVAILABLE, NEED TO FIND NON RUNNING MOVEMENT. CLUTCH LEVER MOVES WATCH BETWEEN WIND AND SETTING. THIS WAS WORKING BUT WHEN NEW PARTS WERE ADDED, TENSION CAUSED WEAK LEVER TO BREAK.

SET BRIDGE LEVER CLUTCH LUCERNE ALARM WATCH

*********************

WE TEST RUN WATCHES BEFORE PERFORMING WORK, BOTH THE WEEMS AND THE ROLEX HAD INTEMINTENT STOPPAGE

AS PHOTOS OF THE WEEMS SHOW, BOTH WATCHES WERE EXTENSIVELY INSPECTED CLEANED LUBRICATED AND TESTED. WHILE BOTH WATCHES NOW RUN FINE,   THE MAIN SPRINGS IN BOTH WATCHES REMAIN ORIGINALS. NEW SPRINGS WERE NOT AVAILABLE. WE DID PLACE BACK ORDERS FOR  BOTH SPRINGS, WHICH MEANS [THE TIME THAT HAS ALREADY PASSED!] AND ANOTHER 3 MONTHS! WE WILL STORE THESE AND  IF ANY PROBLEMS DEVELOPS WHILE YOU OWN WATCHES  WE WILL REPLACE FOR 40.00 & SHIPPING BACK TO YOU. NOTE, WE REDUCED THE AMOUNT BY THIS AMOUNT COST. WE ALSO PLACED YOUR WEEMS BEZEL LOCK DOWN CROWN ON THE FIND LIST.

THE ROLEX REQUIRED EXTENSIVE CASE WORK. A FEW MARS REMAIN DUE TO FACT THEY ARE BELOW THE SAFE AREA. 94% OF DAMAGE WAS CORRECTED. ALSO, THE ROLEX MOVEMENT IS HELD IN CASE WITH TWO SCREWS AND METAL TABS. ONE SIDE WAS COMPLETELY RUSTED THROUGH, THE OTHER SIDE THE HOLE WAS PRETTY MUCH GONE. RE-tapping WAS NOT POSSIBLE. FINDING A PLATE EVEN HARDER.  WE UTILIZED A MINUTE AMOUNT OF EPOXY ON EACH SIDE. THIS WILL NOT HARM MOVEMENT AND MOVEMENT CAN BE REMOVED IF NECESSARY.

THE BREITLING AND WAKMANN CAME OUT AWESOME. REPLATING ALL THE GOLD CASES IS A JOB. IT IS NOT A SIMPLE DIP. RATHER AN EXTENSIVE THREE HOURS FOR WAKMANN AND BREITLING. THEY, LIKE THE WEEMS, ARE GOLD FILLED -THOUGH NOT STAMPED FROM SHEET.

THE PROBLEM WITH THE STOP PUSHER STARTING AND STOPPING WAS A MIX OF ADJUSTMENT LUBE AND PUSHER ADJUSTMENT. IT WORKS FINE NOW. REQUIRES A SLIGHT EXTRA PRESSURE WHEN STOPPING. THE PUSHERS FOR THESE ARE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIND BUT THEY TOOK THE PLATING FINE.

Though all red letter items cost the price in brackets , parts being actual cash price paid, I have marked them free.

* Basic Illumination is normally $45 with hands. The Luminova is 58.00 for 5 grams. A gram does not go too far when reilluminating.  I charged 25.00 per dial and hands set and performed one dial for free.
The full restores i did dial restore and illumination + hand restore for the 75.00... 

** Gold Plating utilizes 24k pure 999 gold in solution. 260 per bottle. In addition, copper as a base and electro cleaning meqans 3 hours of extra work. So I discounted for you and n/c for pocket watch plating. Again, 2 hours go into a plating job.

1936.00 - 204.00 [cash discounts] = 1732.00  /  7   =   Average 247.00 per watch

BASE APPRAISED VALUE FOR THE 7 IS $4340 X 1.4 TO 2.3 FOR INSURANCE VALUATION

TO RESTORE SERVICE REPAIR OVERHAUL REPLATE RE-ILLUMINATE REFINISH PLUS ADD 5 STRAPS TO 7 WATCHES: 1732.00 COST
