Thank You Richard.
I aproached my first post on this Forum,with some trepidation,but i have been overwhelmed with the kind and informed response,both by e.mail and the forum itself.
When i bought the watch from a local general second hand shop,i went with my eyes open,the watch was only running intermitently,but over a period of a couple of days,with some gentle persuasion,it is now running for a full 24 hour period.
It obviously needs a professional service,so in the new year, i will be sending it to Stephen at Rytetime,[a very nice man].
At some time in the future, the only other thing i would like to do,if it is possible and not to expensive,would be to have the lume tidied up,as it is very clumsy.
Once again ,thanks to all and have a happy Christmas and New Year.
