    Regulating a 7750 with Etachron

    Are you regulating via the fine adjuster mounted on the balance cock or the course regulating arm (with the etachron)

    Regulating a 7750 with Etachron

    Is it a ETA movement or a Chinese clone?
  3. Sincere apologies, getting crown and castle wheels mixed up [emoji15] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. It has to have a square hole otherwise it is not going to wind! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. A square stem into the square hole of the winding pinion and the winding pinion does not rotate when the stem is wound means only one of two things. Most probable; the square hole in the winding pinion is rounded off. New winding pinion required. Not probable; The stem is rounded off. New stem required. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yes, it’s the part you are pressing on to remove the stem. It should have 2 pins on one side, one larger than the other. The larger pin is the stem release button. The smaller pin locates into the groove in the stem. There is a third small pin on the other side that engages with the large plate (setting lever spring) this gives you the 3 setting positions, winding, date set & hand set.

  7. Here’s the replacement part https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-x-Setting-lever-443-1-for-ETA-2824-2-2834-2-2836-2-watch-movement-Repair-Parts-/253699915051 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. There is a pin underneath part no2 that has to sit in the groove of the stem, this is the stem release. If it isn't sitting in the groove of the stem, the stem will just pull out.

  10. Yes but part number 1 needs to be sitting in the slot of the wheel just beneath to the left of it (castle wheel) Here's a good video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtgAJBPPefM

  12. Nice one! You'll find me banging my head on a bench Wednesday evening That's a shame, it's a pretty unique facility here in the UK. After more than 5 years I have realised I go just to get away from the Mrs & kids

    Thanks Rod. I did work it myself (1 of 2 options!) All back together and performing superbly, thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This is where I do my training. Great facilities, nice relaxed, sociable training atmosphere. Can't understand why there advertising for a "retired" watchmaker? Might appeal to a any watchmaker that would like to pass their knowledge and skills on!
  15. 6497 has been around the block a few times. Copied by the Swiss & Chinese. The parts are generally interchangeable & readily available. It's a much better base to start until you get the skills and confidence to move to automatics.
