  1. Great explanation but not my case. I installed a good barrel assembly and it didn't slip so definitively the issue is with the barrel/arbor
  2. What a beautiful time piece! Cherish it well, there are not so many around anymore in such condition!
  3. Actually no,the issue is that the mainspring slips on the arbor, so i am not so sure the new mainspring will suffice, probably will need to replace the entire barrel assembly including the mainspring... At the moment I do not have time to work on this movement unfortunately, so it will have to wait.
  4. Sorry for late reply, life got in the way... Yes the main spring was slipping so I need to source another MS.
  5. George, just wanted to say thanks for the 7T32/42 teardown/assembly videos you have on YouTube. First time I have ever totally disassembled any movement and got a 7T32 stripped and reassembled and all complications now working. Prior to the work, the minute hand was intermittent and the date wouldn't change. Had to replace a stripped hour wheel and a worn calendar advance wheel but that fixed it. Only issue is I can't get the hour hand seated properly down on the new wheel, but almost there! Again, thanks for doing the legwork with the videos; following the crappy technical guide images would have been infinitely more challenging. Cheers, John Hendry,

      Hi Johnny, glad my videos were of any help to you. Check if the hour wheel sits properly, and if it is the correct one. Parts from similar movements like the 7t34 or 36 look the same but are different actually. Learnt the hard way...

  6. Excellent walkthrough!!! Great job Roland!
  7. Some more pics... It is hard to picture the domed crystals, but also any crystal for that matter.
  8. Thanks oldhippy. The cuckoo is plastic... so guess this is a quite modern clock. As per the information, I will look it up, someday... Suffice to say the clock is working now, so I am satisfied with my work.
  9. So yesterday I fixed an LED ring light and today I tested it on a Poljot 3133 movement I got for spares...comments on the results?
  10. Pics of the inscriptions on the movement, withe the manufacturers name, model and probably the patent numbers (?)
  11. I was hoping you would chime in. Thanks for the info and yes bellows is the name, only that at 22:00 my mind was a bit tired... It is 8:00 in the morning and I just heard, precisely at the hour change, the cuckoo sing. Delighted to hear that even if it come from a mass produced, cheapo wall clock. And a couple of seconds later, the gong of the other wall clock in the living room just reminded me I am late for work... More pics of the cuckoo later.
  12. And of course, a small video of the clock working...
  13. The clock had been aesthetically restored by my wife after we received it, she does not like the plain brown fake wood...
  14. Putting all back together was a bit tricky, but a lot of patience makes wonders... This is the clock hanging on the wall in the kitchen, working happily as it was before.
  15. With the movement out of the case, I was ten able to reinsert the chain and close the weight to the next ring. Sorry no pictures of the process... But you get the idea
