Eta 7750 reset issues

Question

Hi!

I am having problems resetting the chronograph after servicing my IWC porsche design. This is far from my first rodeo on the 7750 and I consider myself quite competent with it. 

The problem lies in the reset operating lever. The pusher stem pushes too low on the reset lever and instead of resetting the chronograph it just flexes inwards. If I use pegwood or a movement holder, it resets correctly because it pushes higher up on the operating lever. 

I was thinking I should either bend the operating lever slightly outwards so it would hopefully overcome the flexing or loosen the cam jumper so it doesnt take as much force to reset. Any ideas and tips would be greatly appreciated if anyone has had a similar issue before, thanks!

Best regards,

Something is wrong. Have you serviced the pushers?  Don't think it it's something with the arm? If you try to bend it? You can break it instead of bend it.  So take care.

Terve Antti!

As you can see from my photo the error is caused by an position error it seems your hammer is riding on top of the chronograph cam .
Somtimes after an service the assembled hammer isn't in the correct place you can check that throght pushing the other button twice.

Moro!

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Reset works perfectly outside the case and doesnt require a lot of effort either. Ive attached a clearer picture.

What I mean when watching your original video video it seems like the hammer which makes the reset is lying above the Cam, thats why it doesn't reset and just flexes.

Aah ok! I checked and it is seated correctly  and if i push the operating lever with my (brass) tweezers it resets properly. I think I just got really unlucky and managed to find the only malfuctioning reset operating lever ever. Thanks for the idea!

I'm a bit of a movement nerd and just want to learn a bit of what movements are used in which watch, yours look like one I had in a watch I owned a couple of years ago, an IWC Flieger chronograph with a C.7922 which also is an derivate of the 7750.

    • Well, this months pick.  
    • Very good work. Happy to see all the pics and your project.
    • New to watches, I would venture a guess.  Since it was behaving as expected for a full 8 days, then started to switch the date incorrectly, would imply something broke, or became misaligned, or loose at day 8.  Obviously I haven’t a clue, but it’s fun to speculate! would appreciate and update when you figure it out.
    • A gold plated champagne dialed  "Kudu" joins the club. This 17 jewel Swiss front loader needed a service, a crown and stem to get it running. It also benefited from a complete valet, and a crystal polishing session. Finding and fitting a suitable stem was the most tricky part, since the original had broken off right at the edge of the base plate, so extracting without stripping it down was a non starter, and finding something to match the broken stub in my "pile of random stems" took a fair bit of scratching around and experimenting. It looks a whole lot nicer in real life than it does in my rather badly lit photograph. The strap was borrowed from an HMT Kohinoor which is hopefully going to be the next patient up on the healing bench.
    • Nice to be a part of the group. I lurked around awhile go. Just finished level 2 of Mark’s course. I’ve been a member of the NAWCC for many years, and taken their onsite pocket watch repair course, and repaired many since. I also restore old clocks, both the case and movement. Picture attached is of a recent restore. This clock is an 1894 Ansonia that was ready for the trash pile.  I am also in the midst of building a skeleton clock from brass stock. I use a Sherline lathe and mill to turn the wheels and cut the teeth. It has been many years in the making, but has taken its first ticks this year. looking forward to more learning and more work on watches. Mark has a great and easy style for learning.  I’m almost finished servicing my first automatic watch I ever bought, a Tissot embedded with an ETA 2824-2. The mainspring just arrived.
