    Bulova date indicator

    I agree WatchmMaker about the photos, I do take many as I go along when doing a watch that is unfamiliar. I guess I didn't quite catch it this time.

    Alright! Got it figured out! WatchMaker that photo was extremely helpful in finding my issue. Having never had one of these movements apart I installed the indicated piece incorrectly. I now find out it is the unlock yoke for the date wheel. I installed it as shown it the picture and away it went! Thanks everyone for all the help! This forum is a great place! Always learning everyday!

    Thanks WatchMaker for the great pic! I'll have a peek and do some comparison to your picture.

    Thanks for the reply Latvas! Glad to hear I'm not the only one with this problem. I'll take out the crown and give it a go!
  5. Hi everyone! So I recently pick up a Bulova Set-O-Matic with a AS-2066 movement. The watch was not working when I got it but after a cleaning everything seems to be working great. The only issue I’m having is that the date does not seem to switch when the watch passes 12 o clock. The day of the week changes just fine when passing 12 o clock. When I manually set the hands past 12 still no luck. The only way I can change the date is by the quick set feature. I came across a second AS-2066 that also does this. Is it coincidence that they both do it or is it by design? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    Hamilton 36000

    Hi everyone! So i recently was lucky enough to find a Hamilton 36000 automatic. This is my first time encountering an AS1920 high beat movement. I've now torn down the movement for cleaning and oiling but not being familiar with this movement I'm not sure if all the pieces are there. I found a PDF of the parts breakdown on the Cousins website and seem to be missing 2 pieces (I think). Just curious if someone out there can shine some light on this to confirm if my suspicions are correct. The circled portion of the picture is the area in question. It looks to me like there is a provision for a spring and a lever. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Greetings from Manitoba Canada! Watch repair is a fairly new hobby to me, just shy of 2 years now. I have jumped in with both feet and have tried to absorb as much knowledge as possible up to this point and I look forward to the wealth of knowledge that I will learn from everyone here! I started with pocket watches and now am into automatics as well. I look forward to talking with you all!
