Well, things happen. It does not bother me that much. When you look at an old painting you do not expect perfection... Often some paint is missing tooNice!
Ouah! Someone slipped with a tool when they opened the can.
Would have been perfect without it, pity.
I have seen hundreds and hundreds of movements from late 1800s to present.Exceptional!! Cheers A.F.W.
Sweet simple movement- to note, that a lot of man-hours has gone into the watch movement itself. All the bridges have anglage, personalized jewels, adjustments to the balance- takes a while to do controls on these- I had a similar movement repair not so long ago. The beat error was un-adjustable, so I had to satisfy myself with superlative timing.
Eventually, the client was v.happy with it as well,
Cheers again, Thrilled of course!
The Audemars Piguet book, is on it's way to you!

Thanks but I thought you were going to post a pic. of an American wrist watch movement...I'm not saying it is a better movement, I'm saying the American ones are finished better. Here is a bad scan of a medium priced Illinois gents watch from the 20s. Note the jewel settings, damaskeening, cut balance, etc. This unit is a Volkswagen compared to say a Riverside Maximus which had faceted diamond cap stones on the escape wheel and balance. Believe me the Waltham 0s,3/0s wrist watches in the higher grades were better finished.
