Before & After Series
Only Shooting Stars Break the Mold
On this edition of the Before & After, we have a Vintage Elgin Watch in desperate need of a Vintage Mechanical Movement overhaul and additionally, a complete makeover in general. It’s rare to see watches being sent in with separated parts, but this detached movement was a beauty to work on!
For this repair we had to:
- Clean, oil, and repair all salvageable parts
- Replace all worn or missing internal parts of the Mechanical Movement
- Perform a Crystal Replacement
- Source a best matching leather strap and perform a Band Replacement
- Perform a hand and dial refinishing
The lengthy service was then finished with a complimentary Clean and Polish, leaving the restored vintage timepiece looking as good as new – all that glitters is gold restored by My Jewelry Repair!

That’s All Folks!
