Hey guys, my name is Lorenz. I am an 18 year old electrical engineering student from Germany. I got this Breitling chronospace a56012.1 from my granddad and I want to repair it. Besides a slight clicking noise while turning the crown ( someone please let me know if this is normal ) it works just fine. My main problem is that the black color on the Bezel is worn out on some positions and I dont know where to find a paint that holds on the metal nor do I know how to paint it again. I have worked with watches already, I disassembled a mechanical movement cleaned and oiled it again so I feel pretty confident in doing this job. And I would also like to change out the crystal, does anyone know what size crystal I need for this watch? Thanks in regards for any advice.
Cheers mates, During the weekend I got this from an uncle in my family, he had bought this new in the seventies in Rotterdam. I had it apart right away ......And my first question is what todo about the dial? Beacuse there are like 5 very smal spots that have some sorts of reaction with the surface of the dial. When I gentley tried to scrape it of, I got down to the layer under the colour. My question is or somebody can recomend where to get some paint that I can use for this? When I was a kid we used to have some paint from a company called Humbrol, some one used that befor?? Thanks.... :-)
