I`ve recently bought this fairlynice condition ( looks wise ) sterling silver cased Medana which I`ve dated by the hallmarks to 1920.
The dial and blued hands are in excellent shape ..but then you flip off the back and things go a bit downhill.
It has what I think is an MST 59 cylinder movement (thanks to Mirius`s great website)with an unconnected and bent (broken?) hairspring and the balance wheel moves about vertically (I don`t know if this is due to it no longer being held under the spring tension or other damage)
Obviously the movement is no beauty and I don`t want to spend a fortune but if it`s possibly to get the watch back up and running with either a donor movement or spares from a specialist I`d be grateful for a steer in their direction.
As a Roamer collector it would be my oldest MST watch if I can get someone to breath some new life into it.
I can`t do the work myself but would be interested to hear how easy or otherwise this type of movement is to work on - I have a fellow forum member in mind to take a peek at it if they`re not too taxing.
Thanks in advance for any info/advice
