Going to start with mainspring barrel. It is clean and ready to be lubricated.

Be sure to read this thread all the way through as well folks.

And here is an interesting article I found where a watchmaker discusses services and repairs. Interesting thoughts on obsolete movements and even inexperienced watchmakers.

Very nice Yuriy! Man, that's a lot of small parts inside that watch. Also, a great article Butch, very interesting reading. Lots of good info especially for me as I'm still pretty much a newbie at the inner workings behind that dial...

I'm curious what the purpose of the checker board bezel is.  Was this just an aesthic decision?
