I am currently servicing three of Mark's(Zoodles) Sea Gull ST5 watches. This one has the beautiful Sea Gull stripes which are hand machined and unique to each watch. Prior to taking it apart, I pushed the regulator back to where it should have been set then monitored it for 2 full windings. It was running just over 42 hours each time and gaining less than 4 seconds per 24 hours. Will have to see how well it runs after the service...

Pluck out the remaining wheels, remove the palette fork and it's bridge. Finally pull the center wheel and it's ready for a bath...
