It's always exciting when a new watch arrives for restoration.  Today we received one from a client in Etna, California.  Below are some exciting pictures of this watch. After all of these years, this watch was still in running condition.

We will be overhauling the movement.

The dial will be refinished to original condition.

The case will be polished. Note the very unique lug ends of this watch.

We will also be installing a new glass crystal from our stock of over 10,000 vintage 
Glass crystals.

Note the back of the watch is marked 14kt gold.

Not bad for a yard sale find.
