Dear enthusiasts
My watch needs service (does run) and most of the watchmakers are not able to service due to inaccesibility for parts.
Furthermore, I need an original sweep second hand and original chrystal.
There must be some owners of this movement hopefully capable of guiding further. Would prefer a watchmaker in EU.
Best regards

I really appreciate all the Answers so far. Pithy, how can I buy the parts at your first link?
By the way, serviceuhrwerk5100 wont service as it ought to be more Than expected to do. They refer to Orfina, which is way too expensive and Will restore the cosmetics as well, whereas I want the looks preserved. Waiting for Hess to get back to me once they have got responce from their manufacture. Anyone Else or outside europe?

Hey Maulie, I saw a movie called "The Cars That Ate Paris" and supposedly the writer had some association with Paradise.

Do you think that Paradise might have influenced or served as an inspiration for it?
It’s Mollie,Mollie , Mollie not Maulie ,unless your practising Sanskrit.
Now that’s a classic cult film.
Well Peter is almost a neighbour just living down the road 1300k south of Paradise in Sydney however he got the idea for Cars when reading about two English Ladies who disappeared in France whilst on a driving holiday. I suppose the French countryside is reminiscent of an isolated town in the Outback.
