ETA 2824-2 setting problem

Question

I just finished two ETA 2824-2 watches (Stowa & Sinn)...no problems.

I'm working on a third (Stowa) that was manhandled. There was a broken blued screw top and a complete screw loose in the watch. I'm not done going through the watch yet but the watch had an additional problem with keyless works. At position 1 (fully in) the winding wasn't catching well. At position 2 the winding was engaged (was supposed to be calendar set). I've removed and reinstalled all components and I cannot see a problem. The keyless works is isolated except with a connection to the barrel. I don't think I tested the previous two in this manner but I can't see how the isolation should make a difference. Before I fully clean and install all the components I was wondering what I am missing that is surely obvious.
I have pics in the three stages of the stem settings attached.

Thanks for your help.

OK. I was watching TV and I started thinking about the problem when it suddenly hit me. I was playing back what I could recall and I remembered dropping the clutch one time. If you look at the pictures you can see that the clutch was placed upside down. Somehow I thought I picked it up correctly and popped it back in without thinking.

Good work on mentally backtracking and figuring out what you did wrong. Most of the mistakes and slips I've made have been late at night or when I'm rushing to finish a project. Its best to step back and cover everything up for another time if fatigued.
