Cyma refurbished

I finally got the Cyma watch back from my 'new' friendly neighbourhood watch guy. I have to say that I am impressed. 

Basically he stripped down the movement and rebuilt it. Polished the case and straighten the crown tube. Redial the dial and repaint seconds hand. Polished the hour and minute hands. New 'croco' leather strap and spring bars. Retimed the watch and now running +2 seconds a day. All this for USD 110. Looks like I will be sending in my old Seiko and perhaps start a new hobby? 

The watch before.

The watch after. The only complain I have is that they missed out the minute markers. An easy fix. 

Note the CYMA and SWISS MADE print on the dial. 

The Seiko boys waiting for some TLC.
