Where can I download the C07.121 movement decomposition diagram? What is the reason why the movement of the watch is particularly low after the watch is cleaned? Do the plastic parts inside the movement need to be cleaned?

No idea on technical manual but I've always cleaned the plastic parts in my seikos and so do most of the hobbyists and watchmakers I know.
Just not in hot water in the ultrasonic or watch cleaning machine.

Clean the plastic parts in  Ronsonal lighter fluid. 

Why always the suggestion of using something that contains oils, perfume, and other contaminants, especially on an high precision modern mov't that's not what you want. For an hydrocarbon type of cleaner, petroleum ether should be used. 

Then regarding plastic parts, even if they are resistant to most chemicals, aggressive cleaning is rarely needed. Personally I would use Isopropylic alchool (IPA).

I could not find online a technical sheet for the C07  (Powermatic 80). Probably so far the Swiss have been able to limit distributions to authorized centers. However since the mov't is a straight derivative of the 2824-2, I would use that as start reference, and attached it here.

More to this. The C07, as the OP picture shows, has plastic (better said, synthetic material) escapement.  Now, despite the pattern seems to be OK, it possible I think, that the machine can't compute amplitude correctly. 160° seems way too low indeed. Was that before disassembly?

C07 I have a very low swing after reassembling it. I don't quite understand whether plastic parts need to use oil such as 9415 or what kind of oil is needed?

How can I properly maintain a C07 movement? (2824 movement maintenance method can not be used in C07 movement)

Read the last pages of the  WUS thread I have linked above. There are images from the technical manual and the lubricant for pallets - TH7. Available e.g. from Cousins UK.

Is there such a complete drawing?

As mentioned before already nothing can be found free online. The people that posted these images on WUS thread have access to ETA technical database. You can use just the critical oils mentioned above or obtain the service manual from someone that has access.

Thank you very much for providing this information.

I've found that the C07.121 calibre is based on the ETA 2836-2 (DAY/DATE) movement so you could download the technical manual for that one and follow it.

Unfortunately I didn't have a C07.121 at home right now but I might have become a bit confused, but doesn´t the C07 have the day at the top like an ETA 2834-2? Just to show the differences beween the movements I post a couple of pictures, as you can see they all are based on the 2824-2 but the 2834-2 has a plastic ring around it to make it an 0.5 ligne wider.
The 07 is an 2824-2 with some synthetic light weight parts and a low beat (21600) balance swing, day ring  used mainly by Tissot, Certina and Hamilton. The changes in beatrate and escapement was made to increase time in the power reserve.

Quite right, my mistake, got confused with the model numbers

    • I've found this old posting of mine and in hindsight I would say that 1.05 x .115 x 420 x 10.5 mm  - GR2534X would be better.
    • I have a lot of confidence in @Mark so that video section answers all my questions! Lube the automatic mainspring with Moebius 8200 and apply braking grease to the barrel wall. The 8200 will protect the spring and make it just slippery enough to help winding it into a mainspring winder without breaking. Obviously, the very thin layer of 8200 will not defeat the effect of the braking grease, or that is at least my interpretation of the video passage. Nevertheless, I agree with many that the best path is to replace the mainspring if one is available when servicing.
    • Just curious; did you get a chance to look at the date wheel issue again? If so, I do hope you were successful in finding the source of the problem and can share it with us!? The calendar works of the 2472 is the most sophisticated I've come across so far with its instant date change where the date wheel doesn't move one bit until it flips over in a blink. So fascinating I recorded a video of it here.
    • a new mainspring is always needed when doing a service/overhaul. new alloy mainsprings come with a dry lube so you may think they are not lubed but they are, . if you reusing a mainspring which i do not recommend then you have to clean off the old oil first if there is any and then use a piece of watch paper coated with oil then put it between tweezers and run the spring through it. I cant recommend an oil because i have never reused a spring but i can say it wont be 8200 since it is a natural oil and can spread and contaminate your barrel and movement. there really is NO reason to oil a mainspring except for maybe rust protection when dealing with very old NOS blue steel springs, or if the manufacturer specifies. I personally never oil automatic springs since most automatics i work on are modern and use white alloy springs, which again already come pre lubed. Some springs have a teflon coating which looks blue that will have to be removed prior to install to prevent emulsion from forming. Has anyone tested the power reserve in auto with dry spring vs one that has a lubed spring? Do that then decide for yourself
