85 Years Old and back to the living !!

Looking into my bin of movements i noticed one still trying desperately to move. Looking a little rusted and worse for wear was a silvered dial Cupillard 233 movement ( 1935 ), no hands, poor dial, and a movement barely alive.

Normally i would not have bothered but i figured wth lets see if she can run well again :)

With some TLC and rust removed the movement swings into action with a beat error of 0.1ms no less and within 60 seconds a day, not bad for 85 year old scrapy rust bucket.

New original Cupillard hour & minute hands fitted ( yes i have some old stock ha ha) and a dial thats looking half decent now.

When i find time i might make a little case for her, and maybe even a strap if shes good ;)
