    HELP!!! Screwed up my 2892-A2

    John Since the first rebuild I have not installed calendar works or Automatic on ..Same results... I started fooling with the balance and if it wasn't screwed up before it is now. On spec sheel it says 19 Var for chrono grade is it the same as ETA2892.721-13 it is listed as Timed Balance, Regulated with Stud for Chronometer ETA 2892-A2 Thanks Anthony

    HELP!!! Screwed up my 2892-A2

    Hey Deggsie I am going to tear down and rebuild AGAIN ...When I do I will perform the test you suggested ....As it looks now the wheels seem to spin freely ... I did not touch the original barrel ...I did not have tool to rewind mainspring ( I do now)...I did replace barrel with new complete barrel and mainspring for the last test that I did ..Same results...

    I checked demagnetizer and it seems to work fine I magnetized and demagnetized several items I also put a compass near movement to check for magnetization. It all looks good.

    Thanks for video ..I cleaned as I do with all my movements with Naphtha one wash and two rinses in ultrasonic ...except for pallet fork and hairspring I use one-dip for them.. ... I haven;t had any issues with any other movements with this cleaning method.

    It look like it is a souped up ETA-2892-A2. There is what looks like a serial number on barrel bridge and on the main plate it is stamped 2892A2 and some V8b number...

    HELP!!! Screwed up my 2892-A2

    I'm Back OK took another look at watch for the life on me I can not see anything wrong..I replaced the mainspring and barrel ...We all knew that was not the problem to begin with. The Pallet fork seems fine not loose or bent ...All the wheels rotate freely and I do not notice any wobble the clearances are really tight so I would imagine it would make it easy to see if it was a little wacky. Does anyone one know what grade movement this is I believe it maybe a chronometer. Is there a way to tell? I was thing of purchasing a new ETA 2892-A2 but the only ones I could find is elaborated grade. I can use it for another watch build.. In the interim I can use the parts from it to test what might be wrong with cartier movement. BTW it is Cartiers Cal. 049 . I wanted to check out Sellita sw300.1 which as everyone knows is clone Eta 2892-A2 . Are the parts interchangeable with the ETA I have? Sorry for all the questions Thanks Anthony

    HELP!!! Screwed up my 2892-A2

    Matabog Thank you for your input ...I checked the interaction between escapement and pallet fork and as well as the rotation of wheels and did not notice anything wrong .. did not see any wobble and all wheels spinning freely... I will take a closer look at pallet fork as you suggest Anthony

    HELP!!! Screwed up my 2892-A2

    Rodabod The watch is apart again so I can not test but looking back at pictures and from what I remember I did not notice corresponding drops in amp ...I do not suspect the mainspring. In any case I had pre-order one and am waiting for it to proceed with testing. I am leaning towards mainspring ...just because that would be the most expensive thing to replace .such is my luck...LOL

    HELP!!! Screwed up my 2892-A2

    Will do ..Waiting for delivery of mainspring and barrel before I make another attempt. So at least we can rule that out...

    HELP!!! Screwed up my 2892-A2

    John Yes I put it on time machine ... I lost the hand written measurements I took don't remember exactly what readings were but they where consistent and not running all over the place Line was running relatively straight. I did not replace mainspring or barrel ..Did not even service it. I had ordered a new one and still waiting for it to be delivered. Just in case I screwed up servicing mainspring .. I just purchased mainspring winders so I did not have the ability to practice mainspring service ..so I left well enough alone.
