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,

    • Hi from sunny Cornwall.  I have just bought a few watches from e-bay with a view to stripping them down and seeing what's what!  I may or may not have any aptitude for this pastime, and so in the first instance I'm gonna be sticking to cheap, and fairly cheap seiko's. I've ordered a pair of vintage 5's  and a vintage 5 Sportsmatic deluxe diashock. The former because there are thousands of them around, cheap as chips and mountains of spares. The latter because I think it looks gorgeous, in a 60's dated manner!  I'd rather not trash the deluxe so it'll sit for a while until I build up some skills & confidence with the other two. Stumbled across Mark on YouTube and have been sucked in by the seeming simplicity of this activity.......however, I know from previous experience that when somebody makes something look very easy, it's usually not! Take plastering for example. It involves making a liquid defy Newtonian gravity and stick, flawless, to vertical, or even overhead surfaces. Looks easy when viewing somebody that has sold his soul to the devil in exchange for that skill. Drystone walling, glass cutting, brain surgery etc etc can all look deceptively easy until you try them.  Apart from this intro, I shall probably become a frequent, but silent visitor, a so called "lurker" hoping to pick up the lingo and a lot of tips.   The library of Mark's servicing videos seems to be lacking the venerable 7619-9020,  I could loan one, if he promised to be careful  (-;   Pezed
    • Ok, so in your opinion the downside which I overlooked is excessive weight (for watchmaking, at least) and loss of close tactile feel present in a in mini driver. Makes sense.
    • Welcome Fitz you are reaching the point of no return.
    • Hi  Check the gong hammer assembly is free,  lift each individual hammer and check that it drops smartly not in slow motion,  It they are sticky dfismantle and free off.    Remove the floating balance unit and clean in Alchohol or the like,  There is a good explanation on the floating balance on the net by Howard Millar.   I will have a look in the Hermle Manual regarding your mode.  l do like Hermle clocks very well made.  Then Proceed as explained by Old Hippy,  sound advise as always.
    • Hoping for a sunny day
