IMG_4171.JPG (124420 bytes)

HOW DID THIS BEAUTY GET ITS BEAUTY TREATMENT

IMG_4130.JPG (129132 bytes)

TYLER’ WATCH ARRIVED WITH MINTY DIAL – CASE SCRATCHING AND WRONG HANDS.
TYLER SUPPLIED COATED CRYSTAL AND HANDS. THE MOVEMENT SEEMED TO HAVE
BEEN REPLACED DUE TO THE FACT THE DAMAGE TO ROTOR FAR EXCEEDED THE
CONDITION OF WATCH. THERE WAS NO WAY IT COULD HAVE HAD THE DAMAGE
AND NOT DEMONSTRATED A CAUSE BE EXAMINING THE CASE AND ASSOCIATED PARTS
(SEIKO WORKED ON THIS WATCH AND RETURNED IT WITH WRONG HANDS AND A MANGLED CASE BACK]


IMG_4146.JPG (178732 bytes)

NOTE THE DAMAGE. THIS DAMAGE WAS ALSO VISIBLE THROUGHOUT THE OVERHAUL PROCESS.
END RESULT WAS THAT IT ALL WORKED OUT. KIND OF MAKES ONE THINK WHERE TO
SEND THEIR WATCH FOR RESTORATION.

IMG_4145.JPG (151362 bytes)

THIS IS AFTER THE SERVICING OF THE MOVEMENT. WE WERE ABLE TO CLEAN HER UP.
A LITTLE BRASSING WHERE THE PLATING WAS CLEANED. BUT ALL IS PERFECT.

IMG_4123.JPG (122880 bytes)

AS YOU CAN SEE. THE DIAL IS AWESOME. IN THIS CASE WE WILL NOT
RELUME THIS BEAUTY. VALUE OUTWEIGHS THE END RESULT. THERE ARE SEVERAL
AREAS ABOVE 5-6 MARKERS LEFT OF 4 MARKER LEFT OF 5 MARKER
WE WILL USE SILICONE TO SMOOTH OUT.

ALSO HANDS HAVE TO GO.
SEE HOW SKINNY MINNY THEY ARE?
SEIKO REPAIR PLACED THEM ON THE WATCH

 

IMG_4135.JPG (104544 bytes)

WRONG SEAL
IT IS A CHINESE MADE FLAT GASKET
ONE SHOULD USE WIDE ROUND RUBBER

IMG_4128.JPG (134935 bytes)

CASE HAS NORMAL DINGS AND DENTS. CASE BACK? FORGEDABOUDID..
THEY SCRATCHES GO DOWN TO 4 MIL DEEP!

IMG_4129.JPG (126805 bytes)

ANOTHER SHOT. WE WILL REMOVE SCRATCHES DENTS ET AL
IN A WAY THAT MINIMIZES LOSS OF STEEL WHILE LOOKING PERFECT
ILLUSIONS OF THE MIND THROUGH PERFECT BLENDING
ABOUT 4 HOURS ON THIS CASE

IMG_4125.JPG (115006 bytes)

BAM. HIGH SHINE TOP BRUSHED BOTTOM AND SIDES
IT IS ALL IN THE EYE

IMG_4239.JPG (99255 bytes)

WOW: SEE WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT
PERFECT

IMG_4124.JPG (107313 bytes)

WE CHOSE TO KEEP BRUSH LOOK
A SMALL TAKEOFF TO HIGH SHINE
THE RESTORATION WAS COMPLICATED

IMG_4134.JPG (94959 bytes)

BE SURE YOU UTILIZE A ROUND CASE BACK GASKET SEAL AND NOT FLAT

IMG_4122.JPG (108926 bytes)

NEW CRYSTAL SEAL. IT IS A “L” GASKET. THE CRYSTAL FITS INTO THIS.
THE OTHER ITEM IS SPACER WHICH THE CRYSTAL GASKET FITS OVER
AND THE MOVEMENT FITS UP AGAINST.
THE 7040 HAS WHITE HASHES PAINTED ON IT

IMG_4143.JPG (101321 bytes)

ROCK USES SILICONE 7 EVERY WHERE. IT IS AN INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY
HEAVY DUTY HIGH PRESSURE SILICONE  WORKS GREAT ON SEALS
AND TO SEAL CROWNS, CASES AND CRYSTALS

IMG_4159.JPG (101143 bytes)


CLEANED LIGHTLY POLISHED
STEEL CRYSTAL LOCKING INNER BEZEL
THIS PUSHED DOWN OVER CRYSTAL
FORCING THE ACTUAL CRYSTAL INTO THE SEAL
THE OUTER BEZEL WITH INSET FITS OVER THIS

IMG_4126.JPG (110926 bytes)

CASE TOP IS HIGH SHINE
REMEMBER: IT WILL DULL OUT OVER A SHORT TIME
TO COMPLETE THIS RESTORATION NATURALLY 

IMG_4144.JPG (161588 bytes)

ANOTHER SHOT SHOWING ALL THE MARKINGS ON THE BRIDGES AND ROTOR
BUT THE SERVICE WENT PERFECT. IT IS CLEAN AND OILED
THERE IS NOTHING THAT WOULD EFFECT OPERATION

IMG_4156.JPG (143874 bytes)

NEW HANDS FITTED
THE DISCOLORATION ON THE DIAL
IS COMPLETELY MUTED

IMG_4152.JPG (154064 bytes)

AWESOME

IMG_4158.JPG (153451 bytes)

CRYSTAL IS INSTALLED

YES… TYLOR NOT ONLY HAS THE WATCH
HE ALSO HAS THE COFFIN BRACELET
[AND BOX AND PAPERS]

IMG_4169.JPG (145697 bytes)

POLISHED AND READY FOR ANOTHER 4 DECADES

IMG_4170.JPG (126728 bytes)

THE BLUE TINT IS AWESOME

IMG_4177.JPG (169562 bytes)

WANT ONE?

IMG_4178.JPG (112259 bytes)

ANOTHER SHOT OF BLUE

IMG_4127.JPG (132616 bytes)

DENNIS HAD THIS 6105-8119 THAT WAS WITHOUT A DOUBT
ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT

 

IMG_4131.JPG (129785 bytes)

YOU CAN TELL BE THE DIAL AND HANDS
THAT WATER PLAYED A MAJOR PART OF THE DAMAGE

IMG_4184.JPG (106616 bytes)

YUP
THIS DATE WHEEL SHOWS THE FACTS
NO CSI NEEDED
THE NUMERALS LIFTED OFF THE DATE WHEEL

IMG_4185.JPG (88248 bytes)

EVEN THE SPACER RING FELL APART WHEN ROCK TOOK THE MOVEMENT APART

IMG_4147.JPG (141229 bytes)

OK
WHAT ABOUT THAT THERE CASE BACK?
LOOKS LIKE A TARANTULA WITH DIAMOND CLAWS GOT A HOLD OF IT

IMG_4199.JPG (168067 bytes)

MOVEMENT WAS IN 50/50 CONDITION.
MAIN SPRING RUSTED
YOU CAN SEE MARKS ALL AROUND THE BALANCE
LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE TRIED TO GET IT RUNNING

IMG_4140.JPG (93610 bytes)

WRONG SEAL
IT IS A CHINESE MADE FLAT GASKET
ONE SHOULD USE WIDE ROUND RUBBER

IMG_4186.JPG (112534 bytes)

SERVICED
AND
NEW SPACER & DATE WHEEL

IMG_4187.JPG (143008 bytes)

WHAT???
IS THAT THE ORIGINAL CASE BACK?
YES!

NEW CRYSTAL SEAL

IMG_4189.JPG (135059 bytes)

CASE COMPLETED

IMG_4240.JPG (97978 bytes)

FINISH IS AWESOME
AGAIN

IMG_4202.JPG (114050 bytes)

DOES THIS LOOK THE SAME?
99.9% OF ALL SCRATCHES DENTS AND DINGS GONE
A FEW WERE SO DEEP WE COULD MASK THEM ONLY SO MUCH

2 LEFT OR CROWN
1 LOWER RIGHT SIDE OF SPRING BAR

 IMG_4196.JPG (150542 bytes)

ROCK IS RELUMING HANDS
