Circa 1950 Orfina has a problem

Recommended Posts

I inherited my grandfathers's 1950 Orfina chrongraph which has a Venus 170 movement. He died in a moped accident wearing it. When wound (winding is very stiff) it will run for several hours, then stop. Any ideas about where in the movement I should look for the culprit? It was "cleaned" by local watch repairer, but whatever he did didn't solve the problem. I am learning watch repair, mostly through Mark's excellent videos and plan to do the servicing.
