    Sub 600T Spiro Lives Again....With A Mod

    I think it was last May when I put my 600T Spirotechnique out of commission. Since no one had succeeded in repairing it properly after it had an accident a couple years back, I took matters into my own hands and picked up a replacement ETA 2872. I dropped the hour hand and my carpet consumed it. Apparently, the carpet under my desk is a sort of Bermuda Triangle.

    A little research and I discovered that 2824 hands fit 2872 calibres, same family I guess? I contacted Doxa about selling me a set of hands from a 50th Anniversary Sharkhunter. They never got back to me. I know they had stopped selling parts, but I thought I'd try. I started thinking about my 1200T Sharkhunter and the orange minute hand. Hmmm, then I remembered Squale and the 50 ATMOS. To my knowledge, they built the cases for the Aubry 600T Doxas back in the day, so I thought to contact them for a set of hands. They were happy to oblige.

    Back from the repair shop, and back in action....my 600T Spiro:

    That looks great!
    It's slightly sad that Doxa aren't able to help.
    I have a newfound respect for Squale though.

    Thanks! I was seriously missing it! I had dropped it off for repair in early October...and let's just say that it's a good thing that I'm patient. The orange minute hand gave it some new life. Not exactly the way I care to make improvements, but such is life sometimes.
