    CWC Repair

    Morning,

    I've managed to acquire a battered old '81 G10 Navigator... Problem is its in a really bad way and i'd like to get it back into working order.

    It's suffered from water ingress so needs a new movement, however the case, dial, hands and crystal look to be in good shape.



    Has anyone got a recommendation for someone who can do a sympathetic repair?

    - Ian

    Is it economical to repair it?

    I've just bought a new movement for an '89 CWC G10. You'd have to check it was the right one for an '81

    I believe '81 used ESA 536.121 / 386 battery.

    '81 navigator... very rare.

    congrats, hope you can give it new lease on life.

    if you are UK based, John Senior(of Obsolete Watch Parts) did a masterful job on my '74 Hamilton Geneve... he does lot of work on older CWC for Mr. H... not sure if he does quartz watches though...

    Thanks all.. I'll get a couple of messages sent out for some quotes.

    I feel it's definitely worthwhile getting this fixed up, it's quite a rare piece and in the long run that's worth it from a collectors point of view!
