Anyway, after almost 2 months of waiting, the watch returned in crisp condition. Working smoothly again, and with the fresh chronograph secondhand on it, it looks like new!

A big thank you for the German authorized dealer who took such great care of it. Their in house watchmaker did a very nice job!
