LT409 and UD25 are now working, ticking away quietly on the coffee table in front of me, and with the right faces on too this time. They came back from the jewellers/watchmenders the first time with the faces swapped, so that LT had bold late deco period Roman numerals and UD had exuberantly stylish 40's?50's Arabic. Luckily the repairer owned up when questioned about this and put it right without complaint. LT needed a new mainspring and service, total cost £75, and UD just needed a service for £50. One of them (no one's sure which, now) required a new top balance pivot (I think). Many, many thanks to duoinchains.
