So I've been learning about vintage mechanical watches for about six months now, admittedly having learned mostly by reading posts from you fellow forum members. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge and experience!
I've beem searching for a Favre Leuba since almost the get go but definitely did not want a crazy coloured redial and wanted to find one that didn't have a movement that looked pieced together from who knows where! I thought I had found one and purchased it and it arrived today. The seller claimed it was recently serviced and all original in perfect running order. However, the first thing that happened when I took it out of the packaging was the crystal fell out. The crown wound fine but it doesn't run. I also noticed that one of the two screws that holds the movement in place is missing and am wondering if this could be stopping it from running? If anyone can look at the pics and tell me if it looks good enough to fix and run I would appreciate it.
