    I just stopped crying - spring barrel broken at Durowe 7420

    This morning I decided to wear the Flieger 75th anniversary (Bremen) for the weekend which I got a couple of days ago.

    So I started to wind and before it became tight there was this "klack" sound followed by a big cry of mine as I realized that the spring barrel had decided to leave this world

    Nobody to blame for this! all I can do is hoping that it can get fixed and the rest of this weekend will get better
    The Mail to J.S: is alo written already.

    So just see this post as an attempt to cope with the pain and anger and sorry again for bothering you but talking to a psychiatrist is out of my budget - share the gain, share the pain...

    Sorry to hear that . But looking at your home location, it's just few minutes to reach Engelsbrand

    Sometimes bad things happen to good people...
    Hope to be something that can be fixed.

    That's too bad.

    But we are lucky to be here in Germany and not so far away from Engelsbrand!

    I sent my FO Serial to STOWA last week and expecting to get it back next weekend.

    Hope you will get your watch repaired soon as well.

    Picked up the repaired watch in Engelsbrand today.
    Seems that everything is fine again.

    All I can further say is
    - Thank you very much again Jörg Schauer
    - Double check when going for straps and buckles (22,20,18 strap size vs. buckle size....)
    - It can get f* dark in this area after 5pm...
