    Caution. Unless you can steal it, avoid it.

    A/ Indicates non-original tension spring on the sweep seconds pinion.

    B/ Sloppy work. Chewed up bridge around detent screw.

    C/ Rust on crown wheel.

    D/ Rust on ratchet wheel.

    What other hidden horrors? Dial May have been refinished.

    thanks a bunch, my limited knowledge is telling me not to get my hands on it, now confirmed by the 'experts'. :)

    I agree with Canuck, its mucky and messy. It could be renovated though, at a cost.
