    Some past projects and keepers!

    It is nice to see the old boys restored. Are they keepers or customers?

  6. Do not oil the pallet pivots. It will cause complications in time keeping. As you say it causes drag. The pallets have very little movement so oil is not needed.

  8. That jewel is bad. No wonder you were getting poor results. It is quite easy to clean a watch, but finding the faults and correcting them can be difficult at times.

    Looking good. You seem to be well stocked on Timex spares.

    These types of movements are so different from the basic pocket watch. Much harder to repair but lovely to work on. Looking at the parts I can’t see if they have maintaining power? Keep us up to date.

    Here is Marks video on servicing an auto. Servicing an ETA 2824. I know its not the one you have but he takes you through how and where to oil and grease the parts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtgAJBPPefM

    You need to unscrew here (blue arrow) to remove plate (red arrow) slide the plate out and you can then take off the oscillating weight. Some might not have that screw, so you need to use a small screwdriver blade to get under the plate to remove it. With no screw be careful not to bend that plate out of shape.
