Well, it turned out to be a mixed bag. The case is in nice shape, the dial has no flaws. I was a little relieved when I looked at the movement. At least it looked clean. But, the balance staff is broken. I can hardly see the hairspring (not sure what that means, but probably not a good sign). And when you wind it, the center wheel just spins freely (again, not sure what that means, but probably not good). Looks like I'm on the hunt for a donor 870. And I just spotted one on eBay a couple of months ago and thought about grabbing it in case I ever nabbed another Strap 1. D'oh!
