4006-6027 Cushion case Bell matic



A 17 Jewel refurbished 4006-6027 dating from June 1971, i received this in a trade with a fellow collector, i had been looking for the 6027 for a while (just missing out on a few occasions).
This one on receiving it had a few problems that needed sorting out :
* Incorrect crystal had been glued in.
* Water damage through the alarm port.
* Alarm release corroded away.
* Alarm bezel retainers corroded.
* Alarm bezel glue and water damage.
* Dial had water damage (6.30) and broken feet and had been glued in place Crying or Very sad.
* And the case i think had perhaps been used as a toffee hammer at some time LoL
* Outer blue bezel dull and knocked about.


So all in all a nice project watch, so a new crystal and tensioning ring, make and fit new dial feet, replace, clean and repair the other parts and apart from a case clean up and a refurb of the blue outer bezel, all that was needed was the original bracelet for this model which i just happened to have waiting in my spares box.
