No adjustment left on beat corrector

Question

I'm wanting to regulate this movement. Usually I'd start with the beat corrector and when that's 0 or 0.1 max I'd move onto playing around with the rate in a few positions. However I've been stopped in my tracks because the beat error here is 0.5 and there is no more adjustment left. 

Just wondering what my next move should be?

This is the time when you need to adjust the hairspring. It’s the next level up in complexity as you have to remove it, put the wheel on with the pin in the middle of the way and mark the spot on the wheel where the pin is located while the impulse jewel is right between the safety banks.

Thought to describe without pics! Maybe others will have images or a shortcut?

Good luck!

0.5ms beat error is a perfectly acceptable value and will not influence accuracy. 

If you don't believe that, regulate to the best positions average, wear the watch few days and let us know. 

Unless you are interested in learning how the hairspring collett is adjusted, which is a pretty delicate task, I would not recommend you try that on a balance cock with movable stud arm.

There is however an issue with the pattern above. If the jump down repeats that's not a good sign, check if it  happens with a fixed period?
For a general reference I've the attached a brief guide. Only the first few pages are of interest, much better texts must exist.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I uploaded a video. Probably the best way for me to show the pattern. What are your thoughts? Taking more notice of the pattern rather than the figures for beat error it doesnt look quite right.

I've checked all the parts when I took it apart, there isnt any damage to the escapement. Any ideas how to trace the fault and rectify it? 

I will download the manual now thanks.

All is good with your watch. I'm so embarrassed, I posted with the brain disconnected, that is just the progress gap in your picture.

    • I knew that Ronda offers Swiss made movement and Swiss parts movements. Typically the gold colored movements are Swiss made and the silver are Swiss parts. Out of curiosity, I popped the back off and.... Ronda 515... Silver plates.... Swiss in spirit only, lol. Thanks again @yankeedog
    • Well  my Florida brother. I hate to burst your bubble, BUT. Your pro diver  may or may not have a swiss  movement..most likely  it is a ronda 515...which may or may not  have come from Thailand. Ronda,a swiss  company  outsources there.some 515s are swiss,some are Thai. With invicta  it is really  the luck  of the draw. I like  your kirovskie  idea. Just be aware that that watch is not shock  protected..so you can NEVER  drop it.A quick  look  at them online reveals  a movement  that I think is a poljot  2409 with  without  shock protection...these movements  run well  for  a very long time. A have a few that  came in cheapo sixties  watches,that  run as well  or better  than  my cheapo swiss  watches of  the same era.
    • I just got this one and of course the crystal needs to be polished out, but the question is what battery did it take and how is it supposed to stay in place? Is there a battery holder missing? I can set a 39- negative down on it and press the back on carefully and it will run since the positive contacts the case, but surely that isn’t all there is to it. Has anyone else seen one like this?
