After the disaster with the Polerouter, which I have just sold off at a loss (was very honest in my listing!!), I have reinvested some of the money in 2 other wreckless buys.... ever an optamist!
Neither are here yet, but thought I would post some 'sellers' pics for initial thoughts!
First, this Helvetia:
No movement pics... seller says its running... but running fast!!
Will see what turns up!
The next up is this 'Favre Leuba' as the seller had listed it...... did then mention Zenith in the description!
This was bit more of a risk.... Only saw this today on my lunch break. It was described as 'recently running' but has now stopped... But from doing a quick search on my lunch, found this thread posted over a year ago...
This highlighted my concern... I could see in the pic, there was somthing not quite right with the balance cock... something looked like it was missing.... even though the index was still there... and from seeing the thread, what i can assume is part of the regulation is missing.....
And after reading the thread.... Im hoping Radger or hartmut can point me in the right direction for parts....
Any thoughts on either welcome... and as im out of my comfort zone with these (collecting from an earlier period than my standard 70s) Im more than happy for you to pick holes in what I bought... Im getting used to it!!!
hopefully will get them for the weekend!
