Hey guys, here is a MASTERPIECE THREAD made by Jocke an doriginated posted by GJ in the old site.


Part I

Now I feel it´s time to give my Speedmaster some care.



There is a few dings and marks.















So what are I waiting for?



I start to open it up.



A nice dustcover protect the movement.



I have to pull it out.



The dial and hands are in great condition but need some clean.



The pushers must leave the case too.



Then I start with a razor at the bezel.



And after that the pocketknife.



There we go.



And the crystal will be replaced.



So I start with clean the case.



Tomorrow I will give it some polish and brushing.




Part II




Ok, time for a little grinding work here are the things at the table.



It´s a hard work.



Grind, grind & grind.



And it will looks like this.





After I have grind I have to polish too.



Here is my homemade polishing machine.



In action, works like a charm.



Here is how it looks and I have leave a few dings and marks
because I don´t want to get too hard on this.















Next step is to visit my watchmaker and he will clean the dial
and hands. Put it together again for me. I will shot some pics
when the watchmaker work with it and post the final work so
soon it´s ready. If we are lucky so will it be in next week.



Part III




So we start at the watchmaker.



He just make sure everything is ok.



He knows I´m behind him so he have to put things together
in a correct way.



Now the movement is in place.



Then the bezel will be in place too.



There we go.



A new crystal and gasket will do it.



I hope will not hear some kind of sound now.



And the backcase.



Is´n it great to strip off a virgin? ;) ;) ;)



I have to check so the bezel will line up.



The final work.



Nice view.



Just a few wallpapers.





Thank you all for the kind words and the positive comments.
I appreciate you enjoy the tour.

Jocke
