So I was the lucky winner of the giveaway for the DIY Watch Club kit that @Max so generously offered up. I'm pleased to announce that I have finished the build...and apparently successfully (go figure)!
The hardest part by far was fitting the hands onto the pinions, and trying to figure out the correct amount of pressure to use.
The timing on it is pretty good, especially for a Miyota. The watch is flipping the date within 5 minutes of hand-indicated midnight, which I think is pretty good all things considered.
I won't be keeping the watch, however, as I have some similar pieces in my collection already. Instead, I am gifting the watch forward and am going to be gifting it to my father in law for his 70th birthday. He doesn't own any automatics, so this should be a great icebreaker for him!
