Very nice. I think Mikey is about to have a certain level of envy when he sees this one.

All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me

I can't wait to see yours Mikey! My Elector was overhauled last year and I replaced the mainspring and crystal. I have to say the 335 is one of the easier movements to work on.

It is and presently working on Mikey's may have to wait for him to post the after pictures.

That’s a blast from the past. Assuming this is the one I did for you umpteen years ago?
