This is my latest acquisition; A Hanhart DDmDL 121425 from Normandy. The watch seems completely original to me, but of course I ask you to confirm. I also believe the remaining piece of the strap is original. Today I took it to my watchmaker for a complete overhaul. He has verified that the balance shaft is broken but should have an original replacement. He also found the reset lever broken.
I guess the most suitable person is Frank Praezis. Is this the correct email from him? fr-zmt(at)web.de or fr_inf(at)gmx.de. Unfortunately I don't know anything else about the history of this watch, only that it comes from Normadia and that I believe it has been left unused for a long time. The crystal has some small cracks typical of plexy but fortunately in fair condition, it is domed and obviously I will leave it as it is. The pushers and crown are well preserved. The dial is very beautiful as are the hands with radioactive lume. The back of the dial bears the manufacturer's mark nxe 353s Weber Baral of Pforzheim.
I wanted to have the missing strap part rebuilt.
Although the leather is unstitched, it seems to me to be in good condition. What do you recommend? Remove the rusted rivet and do a band restoration? Thank you!
