This is a current repair being done on a WWII era Hanhart Chrongraph. These were often
used by German ME-109 fighter pilots 75+ years ago. They are hard to find replacements parts
for so when I service watches like these I often have to custom make parts. In this case the
Flyback Lever and Flyback Lever Spring were missing. The custom parts bring it all back to life.
"Conservation" is the approach I use with this type of vintage watch. As much as possible I like
to retain some of the charm that age has given to the case as opposed to "Restoration" that
makes everything look brand new. Inside and out I like to make sure that anything I make for the watch
is going to look like it is original to the piece. More on this as watch work progresses.
