  1. Minute hand problems....

    This is a sub second. And to update, after staying up till about 1 o’clock this morning working on it, the watch is running better but still not perfect. Still the occasional stop but so far this morning it’s been running since 6:00am. Still not sure why. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I went ahead and tightened the canon pinion slightly to ensure a good snug fit over the arbor. I’ll let it run for awhile now and see what that gets me. If that doesn’t slip, the only other possibility would be hand slippage I think. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    And yes that makes more sense....1 hour Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Minute hand problems....

    Ok....I knew I was off somewhere....ugggh....well during all that I removed the canon pinion, shot it across the room, crawled around, swept the floor with both broom and magnet, found canon pinion, demagnetized canon pinion, screwed my head back on straight, and now ready to proceed forward ....lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Minute hand problems....

    Wait a minute, Center arbor drives canon pinion, canon pinion drives minute wheel, minute wheel drives hour wheel, therefore canon pinion should rotate one revolution per minute..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No that’s not correct..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Minute hand problems....

    For some reason I’m not processing this well. It’s been a long day. Correct me if I’m wrong. The canon pinion should make one revolution per minute, correct? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Minute hand problems....

    Ok so here is another video I just shot so that I could confirm that the drive train is operating properly and the there was transfer through all components which there is. Correct me if I’m wrong but this would as Oldhippy suggested, point me towards the canon pinion. I’m going to flip the movement over and shoot another video to see if I can confirm whether or not I have any slippage there..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’ve pulled the movement from the case and am going to see what I can come up with this evening. I’ll keep you all up to date. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Minute hand problems....

    Ok I just noticed something I hadn’t before. When it would stop, I would pull the lever and reset the hands. Just a few minutes ago it had stopped again and I watched it for awhile to see if it might start on its own which it didn’t. So this time I pulled the lever and then pushed it right back in without setting it. As soon as I pushed the lever in the minute hand began to move again. So that lever is definitely part of the issue but I’m not sure why exactly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The balance appears fine....incredibly smooth and never stops or slows Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
