Any love for vintage chrono's here? I've been thinking about picking up something like this:
I guess servicing might be the main issue though. A Universal Geneve Tri Compax would be ideal, but at the going rate they are rather pricey.
Anyone familiar with service centers in the NYC area?
My Junghans with an ETA 2801 is in need of servicing (no longer winds), as is my Omega Speedmaster (no longer winds, but still runs as it is an automatic).
Since they are ETA movements both of them, I was hoping it wouldn't get too expensive.
I would worry about service - if any of them actually told the time!Neither one of them has hands - it is just a movement. The second one doesn't even show off the movement - it has a fully opaque case.
