demagnitser question

4 posts in this topic

Hi

I'm looking to buy one.

Do those cheap blue ones on Ebay work or is my money better spent on the old style coil that you put the watch into ?

Thanks for any advice, Tom

Yes they do work, a few folk on the forum have used them with success including myself.  When using one, hold the watch on or very close to it then press the button on the unit.  While holding the button down, slowly pull the watch away to a distance if 450-600mm before releasing the button.  Do not keep the button held down for longer than ten seconds at a time or the unit will overheat.  

You may have to repeat this a few times to get rid of the magnetism, but it's the same with any demagnetiser.  Don't assume that the movement will be demagnetised after one go.  Another thing to remember, it is possible to inadvertently magnetise a movement with a demagnetiser.  If this happens, just go through the process again until you get the correct result.

These little blighters are fine. I've said many times on here demagnetize the movement should be the first thing before you undertake the repair it will save you time.

a demagnatiser will do both depending on how the  item is passed through the magnetic field.
