    On a whim I bid and won

    I'm now the proud owner of a NOS ETA 1080 movement. Now I have no idea what to do with it. Cases. dials, hands, I have no idea. Any tips?

    It requires service due to its languishing.

    I know that already, that's why I bought it I recently serviced one and it was fairly easy so I decided to try another one. This one looks so good it should be serviced and used I think.

    What would make this even funnier is if you were the seller. If that's case where is the second hand!!?? LOL I didn't notice that the seller threw an hour hand and a minute hand in the package. If it hadn't stuck to the bubble wrap I would have missed it. I'm lucky so far, 4 movement tear downs and put back together and I haven't broken anything yet. It's coming though, I'm sure of it. If I gain anything from this experience it's that I now have the confidence to fix some movements when I mess up the keyless stuff when removing stems.
