Speedy Auto movement removal...

Recommended Posts

Hi there folks,got into Marks vids about two weeks ago,bought loads of tools (mainly cheap Ebay crap) anyways,I have an Auto Speedmaster,with a 2890-A2 in it,but I can’t for the life of me get it out of the case,I’ve ended up removing the movement from the Chrono module,but still can’t get the chrono mod out of the case,so...does it come out of the front ?...cheers,Joel.

It looks like there are two or three dogs attached to the back of the DD module which secure the movement in the case (see the screws in the attached image at 1, 6, and 10 o'clock).  Loosen the screws and you should be able to move the dogs to free the movement.

Hmmm,I should have photographed it when I had it apart,I completely removed the clamps holding the movement onto the Dubois module,and then removed the movement,the Dubois seemed to be held in by two ‘dogs’ (little ear things with a screw in the middle,case fasteners?) I removed these,but the chrono would not budge one bit,tried it side to side,zero movement,tapped the glass,nada...so seeing as I ‘got’ it working again,I bottled out and put it all back together again.This was my first ever watch work,and the watch has been a non-runner for six months,it had gotten water in (misting) ideally I wanted to replace the buttons for chrono,as these are the guilty party,but I ended up just cleaning it up,the crown stem was rusty too,so did the same,but rough and ready,but,I really enjoyed doing it,such a satisfying feeling when you screw stuff back together,it’s my watch and I’m very happy for now.Going to get a movement and practice a full tear down,I’m hooked ...plus,I did all this whilst in my hammock! Which is great for catching stuff that ‘pings’ out of the teeezers...which happened a few times! Great stuff and thanks for your reply,cheers,Joel,

    • out of curiosity how much beat error are you getting? 
    • if you read the technical document found above you'll notice on page 3 there is reference to another document? This is the document you need which explains how to fix the problem of the new weight becoming stuck if it's not properly adjusted. The only problem is you're not going to have the tools. But in the absence of lacking of the proper tools I'm extracting out the text that you will find interesting "The new oscillating weight becomes stuck if it is not adjusted to the stud (pin). The new studs designed for the oscillating weight in the calibre 550 family are 0.698 to 0.701 mm in diameter." The reamer is described as "Hard metal precision reamer Diameter 0,702 mm Reference 516 0072" then even if you can find the reamer you need the spindle that holds it in the staking set. So what we get out of this is the axle is over size and you need to open the hole to 0,702 mm. I would suggest not using the old parts just replace both of them. then if you're careful you can use watchweasol instructions with a brooch which will work just be careful it's easy to go too far.  
    • I'd say that India is more likely. BTW Seiko is one of the few that used to make day wheels in Farsi.
    • The Seiko used for modifications all have the same hands sizes. Holes can be closed a little, either using a tool for the purpose or other techniques.
    • That looks like the Seiko 5 emblem above 6 O'clock , but being an ASxxx movement , I assume your watch is Swiss Made .
