Hudson Dynamic jump hour

Question

 

Got this on the way but as its ticking but not advancing the time, I want to see if i can get a parts movement for spares.

I know it's a crappy movement but I like the case & "dial"

 

Can anyone id the movement?

Its stamped Bader Ltd but Ranfft doesn't list it so I presume it's a rebranded movement.

Its a Baumgartner 866. The reason it is not advancing is because of the drive gear is riveted onto the barrel of the mainspring, and it needs to be tightened in order to drive the hour and minute hands. This is a characteristic problem that is unique to this type of movement in that it does allow the seconds to continue ticking because that gear is directly driven. I'll follow up later with more info.

I'm ordering a new barrel lid from CousinsUK. That should solve the issue, right?

Maybe same problem as i have with a BFG 866 digital . It the hour jumper that is broken. doesn't run either.  it's the part in the middle. Should be twice as long. It's sits inside the minute disc and flips the hour disc when it comes to 59 minutes. was thinking of making the part. But don't know how it should look. So i bought a donor movement. fingers crossed it's okay. Haven't seen any spare parts for the digital jump hour movement except the usual like balance and wheels. DSC00199.thumb.JPG.903b5cd9dfd2dfa6ee4257ad9c3d6f32.JPGDSC00198.thumb.JPG.8d7499537c330718f7a6a8b3fe23d12b.JPGDSC00197.thumb.JPG.59c543589b05fba1bc6a89652a64b6fe.JPG

The drive gear is riveted to the lid of the barrel, so yeah that should do it. You could also take a broach or a staking set placed within the gear opening and give it one tap. It usually tightens up enough to drive the hour/minute hand, but loose enough to allow setting the time.

Thanks but I'm nowhere near handy enough to warrant splashing out on a staking set. The lid is only £6 so I'll just order that once the watch gets here and I've had a chance to take a close look.

Quick question
Is it the lid I actually need or the barrel itself?
I want to add it to other bits I'm ordering to take advantage of the postage. If I get it wrong and have to reorder it will end up costing me loads more, comparatively.

Is it only the digital 866 that has this gear on the barrel or does all 866 have them?

Mostly seen in jump hour, but I've seen this same barrel in at least one non-jump hour with BFG 866.

Went to take the dial off to see why the date won't click over but can't find my smallest thinnest screwdriver emoji35.png

 

They're small alright. I have extras if you lose one!

Thanks. Hope I don't. Will work on top of a cloth so no bouncing pieces on table surface so hopefully that will stop any losses.

Panic over, looks like I got it right

Hmm, my order from Cousins just got here and there's something not right, apart from it is part plastic.

The small cog looks to be a lot lower profile than the original brass version. You can barely see it in the photo. Hope it will work.

Balls!!
While attempting to remove the barrel lid, the mainspring shot out and smacked me on the visor emoji35.png

I give up with this. Gonna look for someone to rebuild it for me.

I ordered two  Cousins mainsprings for a Landeron and both broke after a few hours. When I tried getting a refund, they refused because the mainsprings were from  some other supplier and they could not return them....and so I would have to take the loss, not them. That was the last order I made to Cousins. 

Ok for next time, place  one side of a thin brass tweezers between the barrel edge and the lid to keep that spring down, then open it. I have more barrels and lids if you need one...and I might have springs too. Have to check.

Don't think the MS is damaged, just my visor
Don't think I lost anything. I'll try and find someone willing to work on a pin lever. Really want this on my wrist.

Most watchmakers will not work on a pin lever because although they are simple in construction, they can be challenging to assemble because of the inexpensive method of construction. Before I learned how to do complete overhauls myself, I asked (via email) a well known watchmaker on the east coast if he would overhaul my 17 jewel Sicura jump hour. "That's not the kind of watch I'd want to work on..." was the reply.

Watch-bias and snobbery can be pervasive in some circles.

    • Welcome to the forum.
    • Your original description reminded me of a recent problem I had with a different movement.  I switched screws.......The head on the screw holding the pallet cock turned out to look the same, but had a minutely thicker head.  This caught the balance and stopped it.  I felt really silly but it was a very rewarding fix!
    • If you didn't clean the balance jewels introducing fresh oil could dislodge the old gummed up oil and make things worse. I'm afraid you you wont make much progress without cleaning the balance jewels. Assuming you have checked that all jewels are clean and balance pivots are not bent bu the problem still persists,... I would check the endshake of the balance. A watch this old may have had the balance staff replaced and the replacement may not have been an exact fit. On most watches you can adjust the endshake a bit by pushing the jewel housing in the mainplate up or down a bit (using a staking set). Note that this may change the interface between roller jewel and pallet fork so this needs to be considered. On larger mens watches you can sometimes get a screwdriver between the hairspring coils to remove the jewels but on these smaller ladies watches its not so easy. Good luck Anilv
    • Hello all, Imnew to the group, been collecting for only a short time. saw Marks youtube vids, and gave a crack at the basic course. I've retired from the open heart team and very used to working with loops on mm objects. This subject of watchmaking has always interested me, but family and work always to precedence.
    • I have a Solution - Clear nail polish Find an inconspicuous spot then under magnification put a small drop on the tip of a pin and try to mix it into the plastic. If it polish changes colour you have your glue if not, let it set to see how well it adheres anyway. If above fails try another brand - nail polish is just a solution designed to dissolve shiny plastics an their additives.
