Hi. My first build over with a Hamilton case,dial and a seagull st2031 (eta 2824-2 clone) and i was chuffed with my efforts. However aftet a day wearing I notice the movement stops. I wind it up and it runs then stops. I'm thinking hands may be rubbing as i had a lot of difficulty fitting them or the stem may be cut too short? The second hand seems to like stopping mostly at 34 seconds. The balance wheel also stops as does the hour and minute hand. Suggestions? Thanks
So I just picked up this watch from Ebay, thinking it would make a great special occasion watch. I figured I'd be able to identify the movement after disassembly but I'm afraid I'm just as lost as before. Does anyone have any ideas on what this could be?
What I know:
It's an Ollendorf movement. Ollendorf was an importer of watch movements. They have a cool logo.
The only markings are a 315 under the dial, which doesn't appear to match any movements in the Ranfft database.
Any help is super appreciated!
Some updates, I measured the mainspring barrel of a 6498 and it's 16mm. I also tried loading a 10mm mainspring on an undersized winder, it did not load fully. So I answered my own question hehe. thanks.
