      I have a lovely antique cylinder escapement pocket watch that I've serviced and got running beautifully but now I have a problem with the minute hand falling off. I think it's known as a pin hole fitting hand. On measuring the hand it shows approx. 0.40mm, and then on measuring the arbor diameter with the vernier guage, it's also 0.40mm so it's very near but won't even grip when mounted. Photos provided of the job.
      Does anybody have a technique I can use to get the hand to fit?

      I was given a 1973 seiko lord matic (5600-9001) recently and I am very fond of it. The acrylic is in pretty good condition and the case isn't too scared up. There are only 3 problems with the watch. First, the case is a little bit dirty between the lugs. Second it gains about 15 seconds a day. Thirdly, the original bracelet is too small, so I tried to replace it and found that one of the spring bars is stuck. I don't really know what to do with the watch so I came here to get some advice. Should I take it to a local  jeweler, send it to the seiko service center (probably a bad idea), or try to work on it myself? If there is anyone on the site that is able to work on the watch I would consider that as well.
      Thanks in advice for any advice.0

      I'm need help identifying this trench watch movement, if anyone can. I've not removed The face yet but this might be enough to identify it. The hair spring is too far gone and needs a replacement probably easier to replace the balance wheel than replace the hair spring.

    • They are something  like a puzzle. They really  only  go together  one way.
    • Way to go pops! As the father  of a procrastinator  , I feel  your pain! Mine turned out OK as I suspect  yours will. The real world  has a very  sobering  effect. Once they get out there , and find out that in order to eat and pay the  bills  they have  to show up and finish on time they adjust.
    • Hi I have a ETA 2801-2 that runs reasonably well when it is on a full wind : Amplitude-232,  Beat error - 1.0, Rate- +10sec.  with the regulator in the central position. After appx. 15 hours the numbers are as follows: Amplitude-198, Beatt Error-2.5, Rate- +30sec. I would appreciate suggestions as to what might be the problem. I'm thinking maybe it is a Mainspring problem. Thank you, Tony
    • Success !! with your  help and minimal tools, I managed to get my watch up and running again. thank you all very much i put new hands on that look a bit overly (old hands lume had fallen off ) with the new lume compared to the patina on the face. I could not for the life of me get the new second hand on, but original went on easy. really happy at the mo, hope it all doesn’t fall apart . cheers Gary
