I don’t take it as a criticism. I find that the vast majority I have taken apart do not need 10 bushings. I’ve seen one so far out of about 60 movements that needed 10. Some of those probably could’ve been left in hind sight. Cuckoos generally stop when a couple bushings get slightly past questionable and or get dirty, the weights are usually weighted to just about run the clock in most situations. So when they stop, most of the time, they shouldn’t be destroyed in most cases like a spring driven movement that is generally over powered. I’ve seen a couple cuckoos that people probably kept spraying and spraying, maybe adding more weight on some 8 days that had some severe bushing wear. You could actually clean most movements and have them run for a year, but that is not recommended.
