Hi everyone, was super delighted to see how responsive this community is... I am resolving the 1st issue with my Slava watch and now I am confident I can get some help with my Molnya 3602 -I took it apart and noticed the balance spring is a little uneven and does not go back and forth... I took the bridge off (one screw) took out the balance wheel and spring attached but did not see anything wrong, out it back and the same issue pessimists. I need help understanding if the balance wheel is properly installed and / or needs replacement to get the mechanism to function. checked all other parts and main spring is good. Would help if I can also find the front crystal/glass and an authentic face.
Hello. I am a hobbyist watch fan. I have recently serviced my Molnija pocket watch with caliber 3602(hand-wound movement). Watch was back in wonderful state (shown in photos) and ran roughly 40 hours during first day of test. After couple of days, I noticed that the watch stops after running about 30 hours although it was wound fully. I opened it up to check what went wrong and surprised to see that mainspring had substantial amount of power remaining. I guess the mainspring had about 10 hours of power left. What do you think had stopped the watch? Please help.
Hy all, I have 2 molnija pocket watches, the older one is a 15 jewel 443, the newer one is maybe a 17-18 jewel and 3602. The 443 is from Cseljabinszk. Prod date maybe 1950-1960, at the back cower are 2 scratches, you can see at the photo, but I draw them to see better. The newer is maybe prod at 1970-1985. Both are working well, but I haven't got the information from the last cleaning, how much were they used... etc. I want to find the origin of my watches and the exact properties. Can anyone help me in this topic? Power reserve Number of jewels Accuracy Production time Reliability Recommended cleaning, if I will use it every day Thank you in advance for your help (Sorry for my bad english, it’s not my mother language.)
Hi I have a movement which I think has some serious problem. I serviced it a week ago but the timegraph shows great gap between results with dial up position and dial down position. Also the balance seems a little shaky from horizontal view when watch is running. What can be done to make this watch run in appropriate way?
