Response to 1560 Follow-up

Hi Adam,

I prefer to have a butterfly rotor in there if it was originally. Crazy when it's never seen anyway but that's me.

They pop up for sale sometimes ($200 - $300) but be careful - they are invariably shagged or at least half-shagged (which is why they came off a movement in the first place).

My watchmaker has worked his magic for me before swapping in a butterfly rotor but has noted the wear on them.

If I was doing a "back to original" exercise again, I'd swap in a complete sound movement.
