    Built from a set of parts bought on sc

    I saw a message on sc for a set of Chinese parts to build a marine militare watch. I like putting things together and could do with a break from fitting doors on the workshop so snapped them up.

    Shown with the tools used to assemble. Which I must put away before management gets home!

    Was it easy enough to do?

    Thanks Steve 😎

    It was easy enough to do but wasn't my first assembly so I've had a bit of practise. The worst bits were fitting the movement tabs, which needs patience and a steady hand and straightening the bent dial feet. This is the second set of parts I've had and on both the dial feet were bent. Grrrr

    Rodico handy for lifting the movement tabs.

    I bought one of these off the forum as a non runner, the movement tabs were the issue, well, one of them, once that was fixed it was fine, well
    until it came loose again, poxy thing.
