YOUR COSTS AND FACTS OF MY WORKS

a] the average cost to servicenot restorea 50 year old hacking fine military watch is 275.00. period, yet not only did i service THIS BEAUTY but changed parts and made repairs and restored supplied chemicals electricity equipment warranty AND appraisal 

b} PATRON purchased it but some one worked on it and screwed it up. the cap jewel did not simply disappear nor the shock spring just bend itself nor the hacking lever post bend the wrong way on its own…. these repairs were over and above the price i quoted but i kept the price as is.

c} the dial: i could have restored the dial, but plates for restoring the dial combined with labor?? 125.00 extra..  yet i hand cleaned and preserved and did minor yet major repairs

d} the hands. [HANDS WERE TO BE RE-ILLUMINATED TO LOOK AGED] rather than installing a set of after mkt hands [42,00] i would simply clean yet keep them looking old! important to leave as is.. this is one of them no matter what anyone else may say, should be as is!  old and worn .. you cannot polish or paint them and the LUME original??? it is completely different so using AF luminova was in fact my only choice to keep the watch looking aged! i have pics of restores with all like new. you did not ask that!

e} hours to find parts and to repair it was a nightmare. the jewel cap for top and bottom, the shock absorber caps and to polish the balance pivots . it had run on an angle for a long time before the brass spring on top –which is actually the bottom — shifted causing the balance to tilt. i had to polish over and over install over and over hence when i added the new main spring & barrel , which also was a little different from the original meant i had to compensate on my adjusting.

e1] i adjusted the balance until it ran perfect. but i knew the main would speed up some after a few months of action, so, i pulled crown [literally] and used crystal remover to lift out turned watch over and allowed the movement w/dial and hands to drop into my left hand and gently moved the adjuster ever so slightly to one click slow.. 

E2}  AS SHE IS WOUND TO STOP AND RUN OVER AND OVER THE SPRING WILL compensate and will speed up– 

F]  I HAVE WRITTEN EXTENSIVELY ON THE CASE. THE CASE HAS A FINISH THAT CANNOT BE SANDED, BUFFED OR BEAD BLASTED WITHOUT REMOVING THE FINISH.. PERIOD. IF THE FINISH IS REMOVED IT BECOMES STEEL looking .. LIKE POLISHED STEEL COLOR LIKE FOREVER..

F2] I PERSONALLY BEADED IT BY HAND FOR SIX HOURS [OVER TWO DAYS ] with PHOSPHATE TO REMOVE WHAT YOU SEE IN THE PICS TO GET IT AS IT LOOKS TODAY! you cannot buff out, sand out, scratches without destroying the finish!in fact the seam that defines the back still has some of the discoloration cause i could not hand bead/rub it out!

g} crystal. the crystal is the best one can get it can be polished 40 times and can resist scratching better than original

IMG_2465.jpg (51581 bytes)

i added af luminova. this had to be light in texture due to fact of hand design originally used a tritium mix. i had to repair and cover scratches nicks and damage to dial. the seconds hand i attempted to add more AF Luminova to top of arrow head but distance from top of sec hand to crystal is rather shallow so wound up shaving her some. THE NUMERALS ARE BLEACHED … CASE IS SURELY CLEANED UP! AND NOT SIMPLY WASHED IN ULTRA SONIC!

DOES THE TOP CASE LOOK THE SAME AS BOTTOM???
LOOK AT SECONDS HAND??? & HOUR/MINUTE
ALSO I REPLACED THE SPRING BARS AND ADDED A FREE MIL STRAP 

IMG_2192.jpg (44885 bytes)

note discoloration of case it was this way all over. EVEN THE the hands, especially the seconds hand show wear staining and damage. crystal was cracked allowing moisture and dust to breach the case. note pic above this one? NOTE THE DIFFERENCE OF THE WHITE NUMERALS. NOTE THE WATER DAMAGE TO FINISH WHERE WATER MOISTURE DIRT INVADED THROUGH A THROUGH CRACK IN CRYSTAL !!!!!!!!!!!!

STEM TWO PART. – PULL CROWN – USED CRYSTAL REMOVER – THE MOVEMENT WITH A MOUNT RING POPS OUT – REMOVE DIAL. SILICONE WASH DIAL- LACQUER SUPER THINNED COAT FOR TRIANGLES –PULL HANDS, SCRAPE OFF OLD TRITIUM –  PLACE UNDER SUPER VIOLATE LIGHTS -THEN WHITEN/BLEACH THE ORIGINAL PAINT ON HANDS – FULL AF-LUMINOVA PLACED COAT WITH DRAB OLIVE GREEN – WASH OFF THEY LOOK AGED – USE SPECIAL SOFT TIP MARKER TYPE PEN FILLED WITH BLACK PAINT GO AROUND THE DIAL EDGES WHERE TIME AND THE CRYSTAL –WHICH SEATS ON THE EDGE OF DIAL – IT KEEPS THE MOVEMENT FROM MOVING IP OR DOWN– YET OVER YEARS IT WORE OUT THE PAINT – CLEANING REVEALS SCRATCHES SO GO OVER THEM. CASE WAS ORIGINALLY TREATED TO BE ANTI REFLECTIVE. REMEMBER THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF WATCHES AS FAR    AS US GOV WAS CONCERNED THIS IS THE ONLY ONE THAT HAD 17 JEWEL TOP GRADE MOVEMENT.

IMG_2470.jpg (32510 bytes)

YUP… THIS WATCH SERVED IN THE NAM AND WHILE WE WANT TO RESTORE IT WE ALSO DO NOT WANT TO MAKE LIKE NEW NOTE IT LOOKS GREAT. VERY SUPER LIGHT PHOSPHORUS COAT OVER TRITIUM TRIANGLES GETS SOME ILLUMINATION. HANDS WHERE MOST DIFFICULT. LOOK AT MY 160,000 IMAGES OF MY RESTORES SOME WERE FINISHED LIKE NEW– BUT NOT HERE, HANDS WHERE THICKLY  RE-ILLUMINATED BUT THEN A LIGHT SHADED COTE OF DRAB GREENISH WATER BASED COAT OFFERS THE PERFECT FINISH

 

IMG_2466.jpg (44636 bytes)

LETS FACE IT THE CASE CAME OUT TREMENDOUS! THESE CASES ARE STEEL AND TO REDUCE GLARE A PARKERIZING TECHNIQUE IS UTILIZED THIS ONE HAD SCRATCHES AND AREAS THAT THE FINISH HAD  WORN OUT. USING A TECHNIQUE THAT INCLUDES BEADING THEN APPLYING A PHOSPHATE CONCOCTION I GOT HER JUST ABOUT RIGHT

IMG_2459.jpg (31001 bytes)

OLD MILITARY STRAP MAKES THIS BEAUTY–THOUGH MY PATRON, WHO HAS DELIVERED A GOOD FEW RESTORATIONS, NEEDS TO HAVE ME BUILD A WIDE CUFF STRAP –LIKE FURTHER DOWN00 MAN THAT IS THE NAM!

“L” =LEVER “B”= BALANCE WHEEL  
THE PIN THAT STOPS BALANCE BY PULLING CROWN IS IN THE MOVEMENT. PULLING CROWN CAUSE CLUTCH  TO MOVE INTO THE WHEEL THAT CONNECTS TO MINUTE WHEEL ALLOWING YOU TO TURN CROWN AND SET TIME.

USING THIS FUNCTION TO ADD A HACKING FUNCTION WAS BRILLIANT. WHEN YOU PULL CROWN AN ADDED TWO PIECE SPRING LOADED HACKING LEVER COMES IN CONTACT WITH THE CLUTCH WHICH NOT ONLY CONNECTS TO THE WHEEL DRIVING THE MINUTE WHEEL – ALLOWING FOR THE SETTING OF TIME — BUT ALSO MOVES SECTION ONE OF THE HACK LEVER THAT THEN MOVE THE SECOND STAGE THAT HOLDS THE HACKING PIN!

THAT LEVER MOVES THE PIN TO THE BALANCE WHEEL STOPPING IT. WHEN YOU PUSH CROWN BACK IN THE CLUTCH MOVES BACK TOWARDS THE CROWN AND ENGAGES THE WATCH TO BE WOUND.

IF THE PIN IS BENT TOO FAR IT COULD BREAK THE BALANCE STAFF OR CAUSE DAMAGE OVER TIME. THIS PARTICULAR ITEM WAS REPAIRED AFTER EVERY OTHER ITEM OF RESTORATION OF THE MOVEMENT WAS ACCOMPLISHED.

THE PIN YOU SEE WAS BENT AND POSITIONED TOO FAR RIGHT -CAUSING IT NOT TO FUNCTION PROPERLY. 
IT TOOK SEVERAL HOURS TO REMOVE BALANCE AND STRIP THE CENTER BRIDGE RE POSITION PIN W/O BREAKING, PLACE THE BALANCE BACK IN , PLACE BRIDGE AFTER ALIGNING ALL THE WHEELS AND STAFFS AND TEST, THEN DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN 7 TIMES.

BELOW IS A LIST OF MILITARY WATCH CONTRACTS. NOTE
THAT ALL DATES DO NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THE DATE OF
ISSUE TO FORCES. THE FIRST CONTRACT FOR A MIL ISSUE
WATCH FOR VIETNAM WENT TO BENRUS 1962 –WHOM
BEAT OUT BULOVA AND OTHERS– YET THE CONTRACT
DELIVERY DATE WAS FOR THE MARINES AND DELIVERY WAS 1964. 
THE Mil-W-46374 WOULD BECOME THE WATCH OF CHOICE
BY THE US MILITARY FOR TROOPS AND WOULD
NOT HAVE THE SAME QUAILITY.
