  1. i found someone that used to do it and he told me not to bother, you may be lucky if its just the bulb!
  2. Kid springs tools, used for taking off and taking on the springs Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  3. just like the big red button that says do not press....i absolutely would open it, and replace it if i could , a new mainspring is part of a service unless a decent replacement is not available then i would clean it and re oil it at a minimum. likelyhood do not open is a reminder for the service centre to replace the entire balance complete, but that was then and the parts are not necessary easily available!
  4. I would say First way as you feel the full reset and know it's nots going anywhere as you haven't lift your finger back up Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  5. Pushing the reset down will ensure the pinion is in the reset position , not holding it means you can push and move it so it might not be in the correct position when you reset it Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  6. Did you ensure you had the pusher down when you set it? If not it's going to reset to the same place which isn't 12. Also if it's not the same place every time then I would look to see if the hand is now loose. It needs to be a tight fit in order to stay in the same place when reset die to the sheer amount of force a reset produces . Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  7. My opinion would suggest it's a bit off (e.g franken) Looks like the dial has been stamped breitling and the bridge marked breitling is from a different movement. Hands look like they do not go with the dial. However I am by no means a expert in breitlings, waiting on more experts to chime in Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  8. Yep, you have to move the arm insode the machine left or right to get it in sync with pressing the buttons that lift and drop the jars. You wil need to unscrew the boot and knock out the metal pin it's attached to. I don't have the machine to show you but it's doable and easy to achieve. The first thing I will look at is whether the basket is going up high enough as that usually is a the reason for the jam which knocks it out of sync. If it doesn't then it needs to be topped up with hydraulic fluid. Good luck Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  9. Sorry so.you mean power is bad on just the basic movement. If so then you need to start breaking that down too. Removing the balance and the pallet, winding up the watch , what is the winding down like, smooth and fast or does it need help to wind down? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  10. I would approach this like you said, see if basic module is fine and start adding parts until you notice where there is a loss of power , Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  11. actually looking at this, i does look different! sorry!
  12. This looks similar to the one i had worked on , you need to look at the manuals for the omega 3220 , it wont be the same exactly as it has three on it , but you can assemble and dissemble most of if from there, so look for the manuals for 3220, 1140, 1138 enjoy, they are "interesting to work on" i had the added fun of dealing with rust also! good luck
  13. what a wonderful video, thank you so much for spending the time to record this.
  14. You will likely need this still more so without a dial, if it came with the movement, why would you not keep it ? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  15. I would say flat isn't always true , as the bend is the bit that pushes the hour wheel down. Depending on whether the dial is flat or domed decided which way round the bend god's but happy to be told otherwise Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  16. No oil, this is to keep the wheel down, otherwise it will ride up and the hour hand may disengage , assuming wave is the dial washer which is a 'wavy' brass ring Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  17. Hi, it looks like the machine is out of sync , instructions on how to fix will be on the manual if I recall which is online . Have done this a few times , involves taking off the cover and changing the arm location to hit switches that lift and drop. One thing to think about is how did it happen. This can happen if the arm doesn't high enough or got caught, this could mean it needs hydraulic fluid and could mean a leak.. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  18. Straight out of China fake shop I'm afraid Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  19. That's a new setup to me, I'd getting fast it may be because that hairspring is now too short Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  20. Finger cots are your friend..... Cotton will leave traces inside the movement
  21. Sure Attached are pics of the mainplate , thanks in advance Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  22. I have a old lemania chrono with a missing jewel. It looks like the hole diameter is 28 using the seitz guage and I have found a jewel (with wrong hole size that goes in well that is 1.32mm. Therefore looking for a jewel around 1.32 outside diameter with a 0.28 hole. Looking at cousins they only do a outside diameter of 1.30 or 1.40.. They happen to be obsolete (great) to try them anyway but am I correct in thinking that if the 1.30 doesn't work I will have to get a 1.40 and modify the hole of the plate ? Hope the above makes sense. Thanks in advance . J
  23. Interested in that technology you use to make them, they look good
  24. any progress on this? - interested to see the result
