    Macro pics of the Habring2

    Inspired by CFR and temp, I decide to try out Macro photography on the Habring2.
    I used my old Canon T3 with the cheap 50mm f/1.8 lens and a 10x magnifier that I purchased from amazon, so its macro "on the cheap"

    Dial side:

    Hand stack:



    Looks like there is some oxidation(?)/corrosion(?) happening on the hands. There's no way to notice it in real life.

    Applied Markers:



    You can see the jet black "12" marker and the hand painted railroad track and the Habring2 logo.

    Bent Tip Second Hand:



    Nothing to add really, just a big fan of the bent tip second hand.

    Date window:



    Love the sunken in date window. Even at that resolution, I couldn't figure out if the date window was enamel as well and if the markers were hand painted.

    Movement side:

    Balance wheel and hairspring:



    Looks like an incabloc shock absorber + a regulator I've not normally seen on 7750 base movements before.


    Dead beat seconds module:



    Looks like some of the oils are starting to dry up, probably due for a service in the next year or so.

    Full caseback shot:
