Grandpa's Watch Visits Chris Heal's Spa (Chealwatch)

Previously introduced here, from 1937/8 by A L Dennison in a silver full hunter case, Grandpa's watch has had a broken mainspring for more than thirty years.

The before picture. Dirty, tired, hair under the glass and not running.

With nearly 70 years of wear and grime built up, it was time to go to hospital

The after picture. Gleaming, clean and tick-tocking like only a slow beat pocket watch can.

Thanks Chris
