  1. In order to inspect the clutch and the clutch lever must I remove the cover plate? Are there any 'surprise' I should be prepared for; such as' beware the clutch level is under tension'? - Or is this a simple case of unscrewing the cover plate, then lifting the clutch and its lever? I am working with a Langendorf Roco that dates to the firs half of the 20th century. Thank you. KBP
  2. It's been a while since I've worked on a movement as old as this. A friend asked me to look at whether I could get his great-grandmother's watch working again. When I first saw it, I thought it was an old 1920's ladies wristwatch, though thought it odd that the winding stem is at 12. However, on closer examination, it resembles more of an old pocket watch movement. Now amazingly, the watch is ticking when wound but I cannot pull the stem to set the hands.

However, thinking this would be the issue resolved, I was disappointed to find after closer examination of the keyless works, that the pivot shaft end of the stem will
  4. HI I know there was another thread that started out with this- but it eventually wandered into polishing a watch/bracelet. Anyway I have two tudor prince. They have eta 2824 inside, but the tudor version- as far as I can tell, there are a few differences- but only on the dial side of the movment- the date jumper, the setting level jumper etc. The real eta is much easier, you dont have the tiny little yoke spring and while there are a few little things to watch for, it almost just goes back together and works without problems. The Tudor version however, is tricky. I cannot seem to get
  5. I'm going to reassemble and lubricate my first watch this weekend. I've seen a few people on the web mention using PML Stem Grease to lubricate the keyless works parts. Is anyone here using it for this purpose? It's supposed to make setting and winding smooth and silky.
