  1. Great job! I saw your double loupes in one photo. I have been tempted to purchase some of my own. How do they compare to the single traditional loupe?
  2. I wish you would market that tool. I need it soo bad.
  3. Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. I will check on that too.
  4. I re cleaned and re greased the mainspring (moebius 8200). I wanted to replace the mainspring but didn't have one handy and it didn't look tired so i used it. The watch is back working fine now. If this happens again, i will have to look into the balance also. The timegrapher is giving me good numbers and lines. Thanks all.
  5. ...and more importantly, that the hooks of the springs are not turned inversely.
  6. I had this problem also. Same symptoms. Turned out i had both springs switched. They are different links and when placed wrong, it wont allow the yoke to fully advance the clutch wheel into the setting wheel (click, click, click). Make sure the longer spring is on 6 o'clock side and short spring is on 12 o'clock side.
  7. The hands weren't catching. I'm going to clean and re lube the mainspring and barrel. I will post results. Thanks ya'll
  8. Omega 1481 serviced and fully wound occasionally stops but will restart only when hand are moved. What gives?
  9. Tightened the canon pinion and now the watch is working perfectly. Thank you all so much!
  10. Loose canon pinion theory is definitely a strong possibility. I will tighten and let you guys know. Thanks so much
  11. FHF 909 in vintage Lucien Piccard is showing average +10 sec per day, beat error 0.5 and 210 amplitude in six postions. Seconds hand is circulating at correct speed. The problem is the minute and hour hands are drastically slow and often stop. This is all after I serviced. Thought it might be binding but the movement never stops or slows.. just the two hands. The watch sets and winds with ease. Not sure what could be causing this. I'm confused...
  12. I have used tweezers but never thought of filing them down. Smart. thanks
  13. That's a good idea. I may just try that. thanks
