- Latest: 3 (2017) 2012 November. Dial cleaned with soft plastic eraser. During disassembly (for photography of the movement), it was noted that one hinge lug of the movement was broken-off, only being kept in place by the hinge pin. A photo taken before disassembly indicates that this was broken before. Also, there was no fresh metal visible, indicating an old fracture. OJC.
