Following this thread: Mystery Watch .... I thought I should post the watch in question!
1915 Borgel case, sponsored by George Stockwell..... Early Cyma cal 13'''. I was slightly worried when the watch arrived, as it looked like the watch had been screwed back at an angle, as the bezel was not sat against the case on one side, but tight the other.... I was worried the threads on the case may have been damaged because of this... plus is was very tight when unscrewing!
Luckily.... the threads were fine... the issue with the bezel not sitting tight to the case, was down to the bezel not being fitted properly!! there is a inset notch on the bezel that should line up with a pin on the threaded inner case... but it was not.... resulting in that section of the bezel sitting proud, as the bezel could not get past the protruding pin.... what im trying to explain is in this picture - on the left, under the bezel rim!
Other than that... the watch is running well and in very good shape! lugs of firm and have kept their shape, dial is free from marks/cracks/chips and the original lume is holding up well (not so much on the hands...)
On the strap!
Thanks for looking!
