    Always Looking For Another...

      The president returns.. after a trip down to the Precision Watch Company in New Lynn.

      Full overhaul and service, remove rust
      New stem and crown
      New winding wheels
      Replacement glass (custom)

      I'm really pleased with the result. It looks so much better, while still retaining a suitable patina. I been wearing it for about 10 days and it's keeping good time (-5 to -8s a day), not too bad for an ordinary 50+ year old watch with no pretensions to being "superlative chronometer".

      They even redid the "Pierpont" script and relumed the hands.

        Hey Mark, that is a remarkable transformation 8-) . The watch looks great, and I think you definately made the right choice in having the dial cleaned rather than re done.
        Preparation and planning prevent piss poor performance

            The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

              Thanks, I'm really pleased with it - they did a great job.

              It's nothing special, but with its history it means a lot to me.

              Regards,

              Mark.
