Junghans J36 Alarm Pocket Watch
DouglasSkinner posted a topic in Watch Repairs Help & AdviceI have a Junghans J36 alarm pocket watch with a gun metal case. I'm in the process of restoring it. I need technical information on its proper disassembly/assembly. Right now all I can find is sales catalog information (from the NAWCC). Ranfft also has a couple of bits. Anybody know how to take these apart safely? I'm a little hesitant to tear into it. I also need some info on dial restoration i.e., who might be able to restore the dial. Thanks!
Clasp required for a Junghans watch strap
Swissmade posted a topic in Watch Repairs Help & AdviceI am after a clasp for an old digital junghans watch, I wasn't sure if this forum permits these requests? I did check the forum rules and it makes no mention of it only about selling. Can one of the more seasoned members help before I post the request? Thanks
Hello! I just want to give a head's up to anyone who's opening a jungahns J687 movement - the ratchet wheel screw is left-hand threaded. I found it the hard way - I had to replace the barrel arbour It didn't have the usual 3 line warning. Also I was used to the crown wheel screw being left-threaded.
Hi Everyone! I'm an aspiring watch collector. I've just started, and I'm only just looking for watch that really catch my eye with movements that I find interesting, and are within budget. Right now, I'm looking at a Junghans Max Bill Automatic. Model: Max Bill Reference: 27.3500 Case No.: 706 Movement: Automatic / Automatic Basic Cal. ETA 2824-2 Case Material: Steel As you can see below, the watch is pre-owned and is showing a lot of use. That in itself is not a problem; I love how characterful well-worn watches look. But the dial on this watch is, in my feeling, beginning to affect the usability. A watch to me is first and foremost a tool; the dial is at that point where it is starting to prevent the wearer from getting the most use from that tool. My question is this: Will this kind of scratching / damage likely come off with cleaning and general servicing? And if not, are there places where I can source a replacement dial for it? I've briefly googled for replacement dials, but I haven't found any so far. Suggestions would be awesome. Thanks!

Junghans J 87 Movement November 1961
AlexanderB posted a topic in Your Walkthroughs and TechniquesHi I recently purchased an old Junghans Movement with dial and hands. I did some internet research and it turned out that this movement is older than me! K1 is stamped to the plate. K = 11th character = November, 1 stands for 1961 The first thing I did was demagnetizing the watch. The watch was fully wound after I got it and did not run. But that was an easy one: The hands are bent and block each other. After removing the hands, the movement started running immediately. Then I checked the movement with my brand new Weishi 1900 Timegrapher. Not that my old No. 1000 didn't work. But I love the higher resolution. Not really necessary. The upper picture is taken face down and below that face up. I have two questions: 1) How do I straighten the hands without ruining them? 2) What does the irregularity in the blue line of the second graph tell me? Thank you for your support! I will now start disassemble. Cheers Alexander
