2783 Stop lever

Question

Having just taken apart an ETA 2783 movement ive realised it doesnt have a stop lever. I found an old data sheet showing the number for this part is 9433. being somewhat similar to the 2824 i was wondering if using a stop lever from a 2824 would work with the 2783?

Thank you for the reply, i was thinking the same thing, i have another 2783 to take apart, i'll see if it has this piece. The old eta sheet says it does but until now i havent found anything to confirm it.

I agree with rogarţ,  First time I hear of stop lever on eta2783, the ones in west end watch and I think fortis and couple of other brands I have in my collection and stuff have none. 

I imagine some more expensive pieces may put in a stop lever, which to me is  indicative of higher grades of the same caliber, Rado for instance or raymond weil, mido. I have got some eta 2836 without, in fortis and eta2836 with the feature in Rado.    Regards joe

    • So, I'm gonna try and post a couple of photos shortly, both Seiko of course for reasons stated earlier.   The blue one is apparently called the "ashtray" bezel. It winds, works, keeps good time, over the last 8 hours anyway, the only snag being the day pusher function does not operate every time.  The silver one is a Seiko deluxe which does not wind or work, in fact it makes a disheartening rattly noise when shaken, like something has come adrift inside.  They were purchased as items for me to take apart and study, then hopefully reassemble, having cleaned and lubed.  The ashtray arrived from India today, the deluxe arrived from Japan today, both were ordered last midweek. How easy these days to begin a new hobby, what with international freight, the Internet, and training vids on you tube. I may not even renew my porn subscription, this hobby could save me money!!!   Next purchase will be a set of intro level tools, then to business. 
    • One option for white is to use a toner reactive foil. This is what I used with success: https://www.circuitspecialists.com/pcb-trf-white.html I didn't use decal paper for printing but used toner transfer paper. My presumption this would still work with the film-less decal paper. Getting the toner reactive foil to work is tricky though. It requires both heat and pressure. Too much heat and pressure and entire dial turns white. Too little and it would only partially stick. It also requires some brushing to remove any bits of foil left over. It took a lot of time, practice an patience for it to work for me but it is certainly possible. I wouldn't recommend this on a dial you only have one-shot with, try with a blank you can practice with.
    • Ah yes, a coupla good ideas there!  I'll go find a welder and cadge a rod, that's a cheap option. Thank you fellas. 
    • Thanks, nickelsilver!  You mean, the first hairspring, the one still mounted is beyond repair? I haven’t touched it. If it is what you meant, it’s disappointing.  Thanks for the clarification on the vintage tools!
    • Can we have a look at the back. I'm sure the movement comes out from the back. That is not a waterproof case.
