Case Repair Movado Futuramic

Recommended Posts

Hello there Simon, here's some better pictures of the Futuramic case I mentioned to you previously. Is this something you could repair or be able to advise on getting repaired? The case is stainless with an inlaid gold bezel. As you can see the case is corroded through just to the right of the stem tube and also just to the right of the lower case lug visible in the picture.

It was a major undertaking just getting the case back off as it had corroded into the case. In the end it was just brute force and a little heat that got it to yield eventually. The watch has obviously had some water contamination in the past! Luckily the movement is savable, well hopefully it is, and the dial is not too bad but will need restoring. The case doesn't look too bad here as all the corrosion etc has been removed. You can see the evidence of corrosion around the case back.
