Why did you have to do this? This week I've jumped waist deep into that russian rabbit hole already and the TV dial is elusive in good condition. Now I can or must perhaps, get one new

Hmm, reality check time. £625 for a Russian watch. I'm out :(

Speaking of Slava, this pitched up today no balance wheel and a snapped stem right by the case.

Some donor parts from a Slava 2484 and we have movement, though it beats for a few minutes then stops. More of a comprehensive service required. I'm tempted to change it our for the 2484 at the moment, as with the balance back in its keeping remarkable time! But that needs a second hand wheel as its broken from probably ham-fisted hand changing in the past.

Remnants of the stem and I eventually got the shim in with a little fiddling

I have a second hand (blued) but haven't the courage to put it on yet - 0.13mm is a touch on the small side.

A clean and polish and it'll be very nice indeed.
