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?
