Hi, can anyone post me a picture of what rust in/on a movement looks like? I am having trouble spotting a rusted movement and one that is ageing gracefully. :think:

Wow, now thats a really rusty movement.

Most Connies I see that are rusted are rusted around the swan neck, ratchet wheels and case screws. Sometimes one had to drill out the screws because theyre rusted in. Also you often see rust on the thread at the case back join.

The example Gator gave was a chrono that belonged to a Florida eel :)

Heres another example of rust that was repaired

I remembered our member Sulaco's post and searched it out:

It was a mess.

Hope this helps,
