Chronometrics lubrication

Posted by Fritz Wettstein at March 13. 2017

What lubricant should I use for a Smiths chronometric? Is an oil for a sewing-machine recomended?

A watchmakers oil would be suitable

I use a sewing machine oil with no problems so far, applied on the end of a sewing needle to the main moving parts, then mop up any excess with a cotton bud. A friend who restores them as a cash side line sprays them with lanolin. Don't use WD40 as this tends to become gummy after a while.
