  1. Rogart63 reported lubeta having disappeared from the bottle he had, dispite the lid tightly.preesed on. Was it through EVAPORATION? Dose lubeta v106 .evaporate? I guess v105 dose not.
  2. So am I correct to gather that Tudor lubes by ETA specifications or dose go by Rolex standards? TIA.
  3. I heard it and expect a high grade movement from the luxury brand. Usually decorations indicate some higher grade. Starting a thread on the subject brings bunch of info.
  4. Fixodrop is a recommended grease for reversers. Refer to Moebius oil site. At high reverser speed oil gets thrown out of its bearings. This grease seals the oil in place, thereby keeps the selfwinder device efficient. It is also recommended for pallet jewel- escape teeth interface. Stays put. Many discussions to be found on the subject, through the search function. Regards
  5. I put some penetrating oil on the stud screw and top of the stud as well as the boot, let soak over night, if needed soak longer to remove balance complete. Oil around the jewel housing too. Dismantle the cock, remove the regulator arm and stud career. Remove the jewel housing, shock spring go in lighter fluid. Show a picture of the coil while on balance wheel. Except balance complete, balance jewels, the rest takes a 24 hr bath in Cocacola ( I mean the entire movement). Other screws that have enjoyed the coke bath will unscrew real easy. brush all with tooth brush use powder laundrey detergent. Gears and pinions take a half hr bath in vinager and get rinsed and brushed under tap water, use powder detergent. Important to time the vinegar bath, no longer than thirty mins.
  6. Gouge is the birth mark of Chineese movements. Fully strip down the movement to get the main plate isolated before you alum.
  7. Pivot must be out of jewel hole in the first picture. Let us see a top view of the coil with pivot in jewel hole. Looks repairable specially if the collet is removable. Next you may need to detatch the balance complete from the cock. Lets see the coil then. As for the broken screw, check if any of it sticks out the other end, else you will need some alum.
  8. You are not the only one struggling to interprit tg graphes.
  9. I have seen nail polish used as glue on collet-staff, no sign of lacquor damage to metals 50 yrs later.
  10. The collet comes with open slot, HS is placed in the slot and closed.
