It was a new watch that didn't run and was given to me by gigfy.
I had to replace most of the gears and the click spring. When the clcik spring failed, it unloaded the full tension of the main spring on the gear train which sheered off the pivots on the three wheels.

I replaced the wheels and click spring to restore it to like new condition. Runs just like it should

I had this in to Archer watches in June for a full service. The time keeping was never the best but was within a few minutes a day. Al went to work on it doing a complete tear down to find a missing regulating pin and a badly chipped jewel on the pallet fork. He was able to source a new pallet fork and managed to replace the pin as well. It timed at about 21 sec/day. Its quite large for an older watch and I've just started wearing it again lately. The dial makes it one of my favorites.



Quality comes with time.
