This time I´m restoring an old military watch from the WW2-Era.
It´s a Sanford with an AS 1123 movement.
The watch is in a really bad condition. The chrome-plating of the case is heavy damaged, the glass is scratched the movement is full of dirt and stops repeatedly.
I need to grind off the old chrome. After sanding and polishing the case, it´s ready for a new chrome-plating. But i need to add a layer of nickel before. The glass will be polished and the movement cleaned. Unfortunately the old radium-compound on the hands fell off so i need to re-lume the hands with super-luminova. I will add some coffee to it to make it more "vintage-looking".
After everything is cleaned, polished and re-plated, I can re-assemble the movement with some fresh oil. After that, this watch is in a good beat (+6 seconds per day) again.
I hope you liked this restoration, if so, like, comment and subscribe ;)

    I think I would have taken that movement out and thrown it straight in the bin and purchased a new Seiko movement... Then throw the rest of the watch out and buy the rest of the Seiko watch...

    nb! Please persons who are alletgig to nickel are also allergic to Crome,and most leathe is produced wi use of Crome in the conservation process, so leather may also trigger Crome/nickel allergy!

    Who and how do they manufacture all the tiny metal gears, cogs and pieces that go inside these watches? I can't imagine laser precision cutting technology back in those years.

    The restored case is a total loss with the now smoothed edges, but to be fair without lathe and milling machine it is pretty much impossible to restore the original look. Also for the chrome removal using a chemical method would have been better.

      The base metal is brass. Brass will tarnish over time and the watch will look dirty and blackish

    I was so glad to see him being careful with the radium flakes. Every tiny particle is dangerous. If you manage to breathe one little fragment in, that little microscopic bit of radioactive material stays in your lung, irradiating one spot, year after year, and one day, a little cancer seed gets started.... Even the dust from radium paint in the watch compartment under the glass is not good. I learned all this from two friends who are radiation experts. Yeah, my friends have seen "Cerenkov blue glow" many times.
    Anyway LOVE the video! I have an old railroad conductor's pocket watch I'd love to repair for my husband. Maybe you could at least let us know in the liner notes how you find and select the items you repair?
