I got this in recently for repair. On the back are: 0506930809, and PS026 65cm. I've never worked on one of these "modern" German movements before but have read plenty here about plated pivots. That said, I have not taken this down for cleaning yet but already I can see that it's going to need 12 or so bushings. Questions: Is this one with the plated pivots? What amount of wear can the main wheel bushes tolerate? (This has slight wear) Considering the number of bushings needed, should I just get a new movement? (assuming one is available) I'll get some pictures once I figure it out. Thanks

What ever you do don't clean the verge in any solvent at all. You need to look at the plating and really see where it stands. It may just need cleaning. Take a crack at this movement. They are fairly easy to work on. It's your gain to do this movement. 12 bushings is a cake walk.

Vernon, another option is to use Butterbearings instead of bushings. Do a message board search for "butterbearings" for more information.
