  1. Very nice watch ! .. I wonder about the colour of hands... I hope they are lighter gold than dial...
  2. I think i will never understand some watchmen. I am in in this just for 8 months, and since 3 months, i never need any magnification and so extreme attention, also working on balance staff on many fake watches, citizen and Seiko movements... After many practicing, i got accustomed and also felt obsessed about cleaning the all balance staff one by one, until the hairspring collet... Until to see highest amplitude, i work on all of them... That's joy for me... Taking my next unemployment salary, i think to work on chronograph movements... First the fake ones... By the way, thanks to all Mark's presentations... I owe him so much !...
  3. No laziness, open it... Taking apart the watches is relaxing me when i am nervous... i have 5 scrap watches only for that...
  4. Check the sides of the stones if they are placed on wrong side... If you have tried to clean the pivot holes with a tough material, you maybe damaged them... Again check the balance amplitude after resolving the problem...
  5. Beyond the recommendations, for the best performance it's always better to examine the performance interaction between the wheels and prefer right viscosity values for each wheels in only attending on viscosity values... And plus i might also need to lubricate the pallet pivots... İt's not right to choose roughly what recommendations say. But of course most people don't need so complicated examinations but if i had an a.lange söhne watch, i certainly would do that... Anyway... I think this was an important topic to discuss on lubrication topic... So please don't think that I makelonger the discussion for nothing... Thank you very much for understanding...
  6. Well thank you... I just wanted to approach the topic theoretically... And thank god moebius catalogues confirm that...
  7. İt's better to lubricate teeth of escape wheel where having contact with pallet stones with a thick lubricant but not grease. I don't know lubricant codes sorry... in leaving areas with high pressure it's better to use thick oils. I am not watch expert i just told this according to physical rules... I don't know how to polish the pin pallets... Actually it would be better if someone share how to polish the stones, if it's possible... I need that information too... Because it's the hardest thing to replace the watch stones in watchmaking...
  8. Just remove the balance wheel with hairspring and take the cock the cleaning machine... You can soak and shake complete balance in contact cleaner too... Use air blower to rinse it... The result is perfect...
  9. The pallet pivots are exposed to strengthened pressure on just two directions, so they have no circular movement like wheel pivots... So, lubricating them doesn't so much effect on their performance. But, lubricant may be sticky after a time and this causes excessive friction on the pivot rather than wheels... Lubricant can also be fully sticked and that prevents the move... Lubricating them may be useful on some watches which have high beat rates, i guess...
  10. I am using vetus tweezers but I haven't interrogated their quality at all... Probably they're fake because i paid for them only $1 dollar... I don't know if it is necessary to get high quality tweezers.... Buy my budget is very limited... By the way i always make propaganda for cheap Chinese products on the forum. I am aware of that but it is not easy to live in a third world country, especially if you have lost your job... Everything is problem in such countries, you know... I need for your understanding... Sorry for that...
  11. Well dear friend you are welcome to forum... First you have to get basic watchmaker tools like screwdrivers, tweezers and movement holder... You can find all on eBay... Before attempting to repair, please watch Mark's videos with extreme caution... Then make some practice on cheap movements, if you don't want to be disappointed with a simple fault. Especially if your watch is valuable... Ask any problem you encountered and enjoy the forum please... Emy....
  12. This is really awesome !!... Why we cannot get these watches ? Are we accursed by God ?
  13. Gun and clipper oils are also best for getting rust away.... No need to rinse hard. Once put it in and all residues will fall to bottom of glass...
  14. Well... I tried contact cleaner and rinsed with blade oil on Seiko 6309... It worked well... Especially the rust residues...
