valjoux 7736 chrono hand will not reset


Question

Hi all, i have a nos 7736 but the chrono hand will not reset to 12, it always stops just short before or after, i have tried 5 times to remove and refit the hand by resetting and then keeping the pusher held in so i am thinking maybe there is an underlying problem. i am going to part service that part of the watch before i try again in the hope that might help as the movement has not been used in years but is there a way of using an eccentric to finely adjust the hand and if so where is it located, also does anyone know where i could get a proper chrono movement holder, i looked on cousins but all they had was 7750s so i bought one but it is to small. 

thanks

Reseted to zero the hammer should press against the Heart of the Chrono Wheel and the wheel should really be fixed (Look from the side for a gap and try to rotate the wheel with a tooth pick). On the other hand there must be a small gap between the hammer and the heart of the minute counter Wheel.

    • I did ask, but the question seems to have slipped through to the keeper. Are all brass clocks gilded in gold? I have had an answer back from a firm that supplies plating kits and I am also looking into the process of gold leaf. The parts of the clock were always very polished in appearance. I presumed the brass to be polished and then lacquered (or similar) to prevent the brass from tarnishing. This thought, obviously, may be completely incorrect and it may all be gilded? So far, I have still not had a reply from Hettich themselves. I will try them again.
    • Thats my plans, clean her up, oil, and leather straps! I do think it is gold plated. Thanks alot, I'm a beginner,  and appreciate the help and encouragement.  
    • Thank you very much!!! This will come in handy!!! 
    • I have a thing for dress watches, think this is gold plated base metal bezèl, a lether strap plus new crystal with gold tension ring enhances it looks. If back of the bezel is undamaged, I wouldn't hesitate spending some money on it.
    • watch sizing is interesting I know the world embraces metric today but this is watch repair we embrace everything and do not discriminate against any measurement type. then congratulations that's a good price for a nice watch. At the first link below you'll notice the reference to the size 8/0.  then to understand this better the second link has a nice PDF  chart you can download. then you notice they highlighted things that are popular sizes like 8/0.  which corresponds to the Swiss measurement of 10 1/2 lignes  which is also highlighted because it is a popular wristwatch size. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&Hamilton_747 https://blog.esslinger.com/watch-size-ligne-conversion-chart/
