    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
  3. 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.

    Stem Removal

    Thank you so much guys, the silver dimple did it. It wasnt very visible due to dirt but the stem is removed and the movement is free, thank you again for the help.

    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.
  7. Hello everyone So a little about myself, im a golf pro by trade but have recently become more and more interested in watch repair/servicing. Luckily i stumbled upon Marks youtube channel which has led me here. I see this becoming a great hobby for me so have bought myself some tools to get started and am currently waiting for some movements to practice on. I love the engineering that goes into watch movements and cant wait to get started. Next week when i finally take delivery we'll see if im actually any good at it. I'm looking forward to getting to know the members here and discovering what i imagine is wealth of knowledge contained on the forums. Kind Regards Marc
