ETA cal. 2824-2 (17 jewels) disassembly/assembly

Recommended Posts

Just took apart my very first ETA cal. 2824-2 (17 jewels), and I took a picture of every step. Mark Lovick “assisted me” with a sure hand as I went along (thank you!), so my pictures (more or less) replicate his disassembly procedure.

The general idea is that I first take a picture of the part that I’m about to remove (pretty much centred in the picture), and the following picture shows the part along with any screws that held it in place.

I’ve used an iPhone 6s with a macro lens to take the pictures and I’ve strived to obtain as much focus as I possibly can so that it will be easier to find the right screws during assembly.

The pictures are stored on my OneDrive and should be sorted by name (default is photo date) in ascending order.

I’ll post my assembly pictures in this thread once I’m done (waiting for a new mainspring, Moebius 8217, Moebius 8981, and Lubeta v105).

Disassembly pictures here!

Interesting and nice movement. The canon pinion is attached to a drive wheel which is a different design than the norm, if my memory serves me well when I serviced one a few years ago I have had to replace this wheel due to lack of friction.

Very thorough and detailed and great images for phone.

Love that dial on your watch.

Thanks, @m1ks! I use the images myself by browsing them on my iPad/iPhone while disassembling/assembling. There's always a chance to miss something so the images are a great reminder.

Yes, the dial is nicer than I thought it would be (thanks!), but the main reason I bought the watch (€155) was because of its movement, but I didn't realize it was a 17 jewel 2824-2. Anyway, doesn't matter as I expect the 25 jewels version to be (more or less) identical. Got another one (€139), this time 25 jewels, on eBay just the other night (pictures below). It's going to be interesting to see what the differences are. It's a pretty plain looking watch, but watches are like people, what matters the most is the inside, and the movement looks like it's in very good condition! ;)

Thanks, @clockboy! I have another one coming in (the TISSOT in the previous post) so it's going to be interesting to see how (and if) it differs in this respect. Before disassembly, the friction seemed perfectly fine so I hope it has stayed that way during the cleaning process. Otherwise, I'll get in touch with @HSL :)
