Hello I’m new here i have no prior watch tinkering experience and I have just purchased an Ernest Borel Cocktail watch online I can ably assume from the photos that the crystal is either not fitted correctly or has been replaced with a slightly higher dome than usual would any one of you brilliant experts be able to advise on this and possibly tell me what the exact replacement crystal i would need to restore it true to factory speck
Hi all. The story behind this watch is - It was given as a gift for long service to a gentleman. He had a choice of a gents or ladies Rolex and he chose the ladies and gave it to his wife as a present. She wore it everyday and cherished it. She left it to her daughter who kept it in a drawer not working and judging by the internal marks serviced only twice in its lifetime. It came to me as we know the lady who is now in her 70's and she would like now to wear it so I offered to service it and here it is. I think wearing it will bring her closer to her mum -in a nice way. I need to obtain a mainspring for it as the original is distorted. Can anyone help identifying the correct mainspring? On the back of the main plate it has a number stamped 120. Thank you for any help.
