The 8M32 Four Jewel Engine

Yesterday, my 8M32 Soccer Timer died on me. Although I did not wear her (as she is part of my "Unique & Rare Quartz" collection), I sometimes take her out to play with the functions.
Last night I notice the hands do not sweep anymore when the crown is turned. So I brought her to the watchmaker this morning to have the battery changed and at the same time, have a chance to take some "quick & dirty" handphone pics.

Look closely at the "Four Jewels" quartz movement in full metal gear!

The inner caseback has instructions on how to reset the watch after a battery change. The rubber seal is still in excellent "springy" condition for a watch this age.
