    Can you spot it?

    The odd thing is that the seller listed the names of the 3 watches that are in parts but not a word about the Lemania.

    Here it is.

    Not in great shape but I love these older models. The minute hand is in there so it should be easy to fix.

    A Lemania 3000 (Serial number 236686) in it's glory, dirty but full of life.

    I was going to say: not the one with the movement visible anyway - that is by Adolf Schild!

    Yeah, it's here is the answer now guess.

    I'll see if I can take a break with all my quartz watches and fix this one up tomorrow.

    I ran into something left over from a watchmaker a long time ago. You can see the Incabloc retainment in the center of the picture but one arm is missing. I have removed the jewel and jewel cap so no worris there.

    Anyone know if this actually would effect the running of the movement or if one arm is enough? I'll see if I can find a replacement though.

    I would think that with only one arm, the cap jewel is more likely to flip out - two arms give the spring lateral stability.

    Yup it jumped out as soon as the movement started up and makes me wonder how on earth it had stayd in for all these years...So a new oen is needed.

    With a new Incabloc retainer it's all serviced and ticking away.

    The hour hand is missing it's tip so a new set of hands are in order and I'll try to find a replacement dial as it's not the nicest one around.
