    The Right Watchmaking Books

    Thats a good standard. Golf is what i do for a living, watches are more fun tho a lot more frustrating, for a novice anyway.

    2783 Stop lever

    Thank you for the reply, i was thinking the same thing, i have another 2783 to take apart, i'll see if it has this piece. The old eta sheet says it does but until now i havent found anything to confirm it.

    2783 Stop lever

    Having just taken apart an ETA 2783 movement ive realised it doesnt have a stop lever. I found an old data sheet showing the number for this part is 9433. being somewhat similar to the 2824 i was wondering if using a stop lever from a 2824 would work with the 2783?
  7. I'm def going to look into this, Epping is not far from me and weds is my day off

    ETA 6497 Movement

    I have a 6497 clone i use as a practice movement, im sure it will be fine to use for the course. There is a difference in the bridges, the clones being in three parts compared to the ETA's two but it should be fine for a practice movement. I'm sure someone with more experience than me will either confirm this or correct me if im wrong. Ive uploaded a couple of images, the clone has a separate bridge for the escape wheel next to the balance wheel. ETA Clone
  11. HSL i just want to thank you for this guide, being new to watch repair/service its become a very interesting and fun hobby. I bought a cheap clone 2824 movement and then found that a cheap watch i got off ebay also has an eta 2824-2 movement in it. This guide has been invaluable to me, again thank you for the time it took to post this.

    Hello from London

    Hi clockboy thank you for the reply, well tonight i started the disassembly and re-assembly of a 6497 movement, everything was going great until i dropped a screw which i cant seem to find. The worst part is im not of the size of the screw to get a replacement, the screw in question is the setting lever jumper screw. Certain parts were definitely more frustrating than golf tho to be honest i dont really get frustrated at golf. On the whole though it was great fun and i have learned a lot doing it.
