    A bit of nostalgia - Fathers wedding watch

    Thought a few people here may enjoy seeing a few photos of my fathers wedding watch, a late 60s Navitimer, purchased from Peplow's of Worcester, which has recently emerged from nearly 3 decades in the loft.

    It's never been serviced, so I dread to think what the internals look like, but the plan is to get it looked at by a credible restorer and hopefully get it back up and running.

    Not a huge Breitling fan but that's a pretty cool watch! Also great that you've got that photo. :)

    Fantastic find and watch! Get it serviced, wear it well and have your own pictures taken with it on your wrist, too.

    Very cool. Looks to be in great shape. Is that the original strap? Definitely worth getting it up and running, but I wouldn't let anyone tinker with the dial. I probably wouldn't polish it either.

    I'd like to see it after restoration.

    I don't think it is the original strap.

    disassmble, clean, re-lubricate / reassemble with maybe a new crystal was my thinking.

    hoping the movement isn't too worn.

    Will update the thread then the work is done, but may be a while as need to research who I will use to do the work. Currently thinking Time Restoration who advertise on this forum.
