    My first balance staff!

    well done, if only i could figure out how to sharpen my gravers i would be attempting this myself!
  2. Quick and dirty way will be two points of tweezers and twist. Or pegwood Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  3. As for the balance spring , I would suggest one dip or an alternative degreaser, you shouldn't need much more than that. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

    Off the top off my head, I know a few watchmakers that don't because they have issues with the small chrono hands get damaged and are hard to find. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

  7. i think it will work perfectly, as long as your room is on a ski slope!
  8. oooh i knew there were going to be more reactions to this than the actual post... nothing wrong with seiko at all. the movement that has posted is pure chinese tat !
  9. look legit to me!
  10. As a software consultant by trade , i have gone through this a few times. im currently in the process of developing my own for my repairs, but currently us.e a customised a open source crm system (SugarCRM) that works quite well .
  11. If the centre pin does not go through the collet holder then it may be as simple as that is not the correct collet holder? Should go straight through the collect holder and then through the middle of the faceplate Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  12. I have had a nightmare yesterday trying to pull of the centre seconds hand on a 7750, which has resulted in the pipe staying and the hand flying. the pipe is still in there. Ifor the seconds only, can someone recommend a good tool, i use hand levers and usually from the hour it pulls them all off, but this doesnt feel like the safest way and in this case felt like the seconds was so strong that it would damage the hour and minute. once i get the pipe off (going to try some oil ) i will see if i can repair the hand thanks in advance.
  13. Had another go , with a bit more confidence and pop... Was seriously gunky under there which probably was why it was tougher than usual. Thanks guys Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  14. I assumed that after the screws were removed that the bezel would come out. It is extremely gunky so it's in the ultrasilonic in case that will help. Have had a brief attempt to use a case opener to flip it up which usually works with other watches .. Bit confused !! Anyone have any experience with this model Thanks in advance Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  15. This may be of use, i have a 1138 that is currently in pieces waiting for me to start working on. have you serviced the DD module aswell as the movement? 231_Omega3220.pdf
