I bought this watch in Jersey (Channel Islands) back in 1970 it served me well for a while then, and I can't remember how, the secondhand broke off the top of its pinion!
Stayed tucked away for many years until I decided to get it repaired, enter Simon!
Simon was to service the movement and obtain a replacement seconds pinion, except that it would seem to be unobtainable. A second-hand, but sound movement was found and purchased from the States to provide the unobtainable part.
Movement serviced and fitted with the required part, my watch is now up and running.
Many thanks to Simon for persevering with this one, I realise it wasn't the most straightforward of jobs!
