I recently serviced this solid gold Krieger Aficionado moonphase chronograph driven by a Valjoux 7751 movement for a ClockSavant customer. The final result after servicing is very nice— the watch has an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, Vacheron Overseas, and Gerald Genta style of design. Its condition when received was poor as it had been subject to significant abuse from multiple past watchmakers damaging the watch. It had green funk and an oily film from having been cleaned and not fully dissembled. At least one part, the automatic mechanism click spring, had been entirely removed. Other parts were damaged and needed replacement. The hands were improperly lumed, very poor job. Even the day corrector pusher on the case didn’t escape abuse, having been improperly removed and reinstalled into the watch creating its own problem set I resolved. I’m happy with the result, it’s a very nice watch once again. This watch is a reminder that botch work is not reserved for very old watches— modern era ones (I believe this watch is about 25 years old) can also receive significant abuse they don’t deserve.
