It´s amazing how 60-year-old watch is exactly. After light cleaning and adjustment after 3 days not register any deviation and time is absolutely exact.

One of my favourites, too. Nice watch, jabs. If you plan to run it and wear it, I strongly recommend having it completely serviced by a watchmaker, as it doesn't take long for dirt and dried oil to destroy a vintage watch. I did it once in less than three months with an NOS dive watch.

I'd like all the watches which I get to keep the collection in good working condition. Little I can do it myself, but if I have a problem watchmaker is at hand.
