Hello All, I'm wondering what tool is commonly used to manipulate the regulator arm? I've used everything from tweezers to a plastic stick used to help open up computers. My main issue is that all of the things I've used are risky for slippage and I find it incredibly hard to just nudge a little when you're really trying to dial in the timing. I would think there would be a special tool for this (there's a special tool for EVERYTHING), but I haven't managed to find such a tool if it exists. Today I made my own tool using an old broken spring bar tool that I reshaped that should make life a little easier, but I'm very curious to see what everyone else is using. thank you
I'm having some unexpected behaviour from a eta 7750 that I'm trying to regulate after servicing. I went through service procedure using correct lubricants. Everything went fine. Actually I have some doubt on lubrication of incabloc wich I'm not sure I did correctly since I'm afraid that too much oil was placed in one of the two stones. The fact is that when I finished I wasn't brave enough to clean and lubricate it again ... shame on me but I felt that task to be very very difficult. Anyway after reassembling the watch I had it at my wrist for a week and it showed a great consistency at -10 sec a day. It'a stop grade movement and resting at night in DU, DD 9UP and 3UP positions always showed something between -14 -6 I was very happy with that result and I thought that a little regulation would have brought it to a very fine time keeping. Then I reopened the caseback and slightly moved etachron arm, that was resting in a nearly neutral position, in the + direction. Nothing happened (measuring with timegrapher open source app) Did it again, another slight push. Nothing ? ok I must have gone the wrong direction, then pushed all the way toward - Nothing happened. Ok this is annoying, all the way toward + nothing here I am, what I'm I missing? How come moving the regulator arm from - to + does not make any variation? I'm lost
I have an Omega Speedmaster 1861 which is gaining 55-60 seconds per day. How can you tell if the watch needs a service or just regulating? I have checked the watch for magnetism and it is not magnetised. The watch was originally purchased in 2010. I only wear the watch a few times per month. I have made a short video of the watch on a Timegrapher . Any suggestions / comments would be most appreciated.
HI EVERYONE ...I had a Seiko5 SNZG15K1 ...I started playing around with the regulator and bought a timegraph 1000 ... anyways as I was moving the beat lever the hairspring stopped . I removed the spring , wheel and cock and the spring was a mess. I just want to know do these watches come ready to regulate or do you have to turn the brass stay bits on the end that hold the spring ..I think that the spring jumped on mine .but at the time I wasn't thinking straight and ran to disassemble it when I should of looked a bit closer back then ..Thanks Lenny...........
