Found this video on YouTube. This is how a professional poises a balance wheel to a very high degree of accuracy. Most large variations when regulating a watch in different positions is normally caused by the hairspring or the poise of the balance wheel.   ..read more

Im curious to know if any of you fine folks know how to exchange a rotor on the ETA 2824, by which i mean retaining the centre bearing and swapping the old rotor weight for another. Is the bearing a push/friction fit/removal ? I know on the 2892 and other models to use the removal tool but i want to be sure before i damage any parts. I have looked through my ETA Technical communications but there is no explaination for the procedure so i figured one of you fine chaps might know the correct method. Any help will be gratefully received ..read more

Identifying Landeron Balance

Hi all, hope your having a good day! I have finally got back to restoring a Landeron movement, a personal project I started a while back. I believe it is an early cal. 48 although it may be a 47? The balance was one of the many issues with the watch. With a broken pivot on the staff and the balance spring beyond fixing, without buying professional tools finding a complete balance would be the easiest way for me to fix the issue. I am at a complete loss as to what balance I need; I know its a non-incabloc, possibly made by either Barbell or Renata but I'm not sure what I should be lookin ..read more

Eta 2970-1 rotor mount stops watch

Hello, I am working on a eta 2970-1 and as soon as I screw down the rotor, the watch stops. The watch runs great without the automatic bridge, when I attach the automatic bridge, it continues to run well, but as soon as I attach the main rotor the watch stops. Can anyone please share schematics or pictures of the automatic bridge? I have looked up a few pictures online and it looks like I have assembled the bridge correctly after cleaning, but the fact that the watch stops as soon as the rotor puts counter pressure on the bridge, points me that there js something wrong with the automatic bridg ..read more

Omega Split stem issue (will not go back in)

Hi all I have an interesting one here... Working on an Omega Calibre 565, the watch is a front loader with monocoque case,  no case back, hence the split stem. I extracted the split stem, with no issue as I have done many times before, serviced the movement, but now cannot fit the stem back in without pressing the little pusher / detent on on the upper side (which obviously is not accessible when the watch is cased!). I have noticed the split stem which was in the watch does not have an angle/ bevel to help the setting lever slide over the shoulder into its groove.    Other Spl ..read more
