ManSkirtBrew Posted October 15, 2022 Share Posted October 15, 2022 (edited) My girlfriend's mom was trusting enough to let me work on her Rolex She said it was serviced at a local jeweler a few years ago, but hasn't been keeping good time recently, and hooooooo boy. It is absolutely filthy on the outside, and drenched in oil on the inside. Every part is glistening, and there are puddles of oil everywhere. I'm FAR from an expert here, and even I know this thing is kind of a mess. I just finished my second negroni, so no more watches for the evening, but I can share some photos. Timegrapher reading is super exciting. 14k fluted bezel. Crystal looks decent, at least. The face shows some surprising wear around the date window. No, that's not a gear at the top, that's a gear-shaped puddle of oil. Mainspring looks worn and misshapen to me, so I sourced a new one. The inside of the barrel was also seriously filthy. Mmmmm, skin. So much nicer clean and organized into a dust tray. Edit to note this is a 2135 movement, for future forum searchers. Hello from the past!
