Stowa Necklace Watch

This pretty watch was inherited by the proprietor from a grandparent and stopped working after it was dropped – uncommon for a watch with incabloc shock settings however not unattainable. Upon additional inspection, it was discovered {that a} earlier ‘repairer’ (or watchbreaker) had solved an issue of damaged dial toes by merely gluing on the dial. The glue obtained into the incabloc and the watch stopped being shock resistant, resulting in a damaged steadiness pivot. New dial toes have to be correctly fitted, in addition to the watch being serviced and the steadiness workers changed.

The case for this watch was spherical, resulting in some uncommon formed elements. The dial is formed like a mushroom, and the cannon pinion and hour wheels are for much longer than you’d usually see. Right here the motion is subsequent to one thing just like present a peak comparability.



The Jig Borer got here in helpful when changing the dial really feel, permitting me to make pilot holes in precisely the precise place. The bizarre form meant that the conventional dial foot substitute strategies wouldn’t work on this instace.





With all of the work full and the motion again within the case, it’s prepared to return to the proprietor to be loved correctly. I really like the feel of the case – it jogs my memory of a Ferrero Rocher!
