Hi everyone !
I got quick question about Venus 170 at first the hands are stiff to turn so I put oil on the pivot, and is trun freely , but now the gear probably hade to much lubricate and cause the gear to run free ( hours hand and minute not move) do I have to remove the oli by cleaning the gear or is maybe a different problem like loosen and need to tighten up ?
Thank you !
The test watch on the left arm, and a quartz number on the right. Recently I have been using a Swatch as the watch to compare with.
Today, however I've been wearing a rather odd watch that came with a bundle of other stuff.
It is the most generic watch I have ever encountered. It has absolutely no branding on it.
The caseback is completely blank, the strap (which does appear to be leather).. blank.. and it arrived in a completely unworn condition.
Not a mark on it.
Quality wise, it is reasonable. Not a dollar store watch, but then again not something you would spend more than maybe forty bucks on, new.
So today I stuffed a battery in it, and substituted it for the Swatch.
This would actually make the ultimate crime of the century watch, since it appears to be completely untraceable.
The styling is very much what you would expect for a completely vanilla watch. Not unpleasant, but not particularly inspiring either.
Having said that, it wouldn't look out of place next to any of the modern "designer" watches.. yes you "Daniel Wellington".. I'm talking about you and your like.
I thought I could share my journey servicing an ETA 205.111A Autoquartz. Yes sometimes I just get an urge for something different and now it is a bunch of quartz movements in my scope.
Today I have taken it apart and made a small PDF describing the process, might be one or two interesting shots in it.
When I received the new capacitor part two will be released.
