  1. You are sayin that the wheel isnt centered , then i would check that the wheel isnt made for being under tension from the side,that little piece of metal could have been Lost (piinged across the room)by the last intruder And not noticed. With great impact on the function Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Friction spring i think, i have bought a selection on eBay, cost next to nothing If and when you get it running I would like to know if im correct or it was something Else Another clue to the problem was your info that it runs nearby 3/4 and the next time Its something Else that indicates that the problem is in that direction If it was worn teeth the revolutionrate would be more the same and the date would stop entirely imo.

  3. It seems to be a Quick fix the little thin curved brass bushing that holds the wheels in the correct position are missing the same kind that holds the hourwheel in position,pressing against the dial. Hope it solves your problem Regards Allan Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. Exactly but its enough to place the roller pin on the right side, its a little difficult to place it exactly in the fork Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. The stone under the balance must be on the right side of the of the pallet, the watch wont tick if not, and when you agitate the balance with a blower with palletfork removed it must come to rest exactly in center between the banking pins , its a must, go on youtube, Mark on the watchrepair channel has a video where hes showing it Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Check if the Stone on the roller is on the wrong side of the pallet, the balance must be turned in counterclockwise And even then it must be carefully mingled into place, slowly but surely and there is no doubts when it falls into place, it just feels right

  10. Its worth a try, and then go to sleep , and hope that tomorrow is not just groooound hog day again [emoji1787] , but hey if it was easy everybody would do it Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. It went very well There was a part of the electronic circuit that was defective, the readings were bad according to the service manual Fortunately i had a tissot tissonic with the same movement cal 9162 where it was the other part of the circuit that have failed, so i simply mixed the parts,took some new readings, and all were good to go, oiled and reassembled the piece, and with some gentle taps it sprung into timekeeping again , humming strong ,and with remarkable precision,under 1/2 sec per 24 hours too fast. Many thanks for the help from you all Il post some pics soon Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I was having the same issue with my eterna sonic, after cleaning and service it would only change when i quickset the date, i tried to remove the crown and reinsert it carefully and voila, i think it was the stem that got stuck in the wrong 1/100 mm to far out but im guessing here, anyway that did the trick, sometimes magic takes over,no reason no explanation, just magic Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
