P1008 Royal Chronometer Refurb

Just back from my watchmaker's hands. Proper crystal installed, movement serviced,cleaned,and case polished.

And yes this was all done inside of the 4-6 week window as promised.

I really like the contrasting brushed treatment on the case back.P1008 Royal Chronometer Refurb P1008 Royal Chronometer Refurb

Thanks for the comments guys.

Some watches make each of us smile just a bit more when they are on the wrist or in the pocket

and for me this is one of them.

A couple of cal.1008/BS pictures.  One of, if not my #1, favorite vintage VC wristwatch movement.  Love the fact that these movements were made during an age when nobody besides another watchmaker was ever expected to see the internal beauty of a movement.
