Hello from Shanghai

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 

My name is Jason. I live in China, and I have been working on Chinese standard (tongji) movements for about six months. 

I am hoping to improve my skills and start working on more advanced movements in the future. 

I am currently at the end of Course 2 of the Watch Repair Lessons and looking forward to working on the Hangzhou 9000 movement, which is based on the Unitas 6498.

The Hangzhou was my movement of choice because I have read that the Sea-Gull 3600 has some design flaws, and I want to make a watch out of my movement when I have finished the courses. 

Thanks for taking the time to read my introduction.

See you in the forum. 

Regards, 

Jason

 

ps: I have attached a photo of my current work area. Honestly, it was a mess before watching the video in Course 1 about keeping your area clean.

Hi you will be  a good source of chinese movements , good to have you with us.

Thanks again. I hope so.

 The Hangzhou 9310 (Unitas 6498 clone) that I am using for Watch Repair Course 2 was the most expensive movement I have purchased; it cost me 149rmb,  which is  $21usd. I don't know how that compares to other clones of the 6498, but I think I got a good deal.

    • Update I discovered the setting lever when crown is pulled all the way out does not engage because (see picture below) the post on my timing lever is gone so the lever was not secured at axis point which limited the range in which the lever could full extend. I ordered a new one should be here in a week. I will keep you updated, what I think happened is someone pushed the setting lever post to allow stem to insert or remove and they pushed it to hard and broke it.
    • There is a Jasco made Naphta sold in hw home improvement stores in the US. It's described as being the thinner for varnish and enamel. It also says that it cleans greasy, waxy, oily surfaces and machine parts. Would this be safe to use on watch parts including balance complete?
    • Hello everyone, My name is John but you can call me Jack. I am new the group here and have been a hobbyist repairer for the past 2 + years. I mainly stick with mechanical watches but from time to time I will tinker with old quartz Seiko watches which I love. A current project that I have been trying to get down is a Seiko 4336 8129. This watch has been fighting me from the start. Well the movement was dead due to a broken pivot on the motor. So I sourced a replacement movement. Next Crystal was cracked so I removed the broken glass but can't figure out how to take the top bezel ring off. I have some pics. This poor watch has had a rough life. I was trying to bring it back!! Thank you for reading my tale of woe!!  
    • I am looking for a camera with a macro function to photograph my work.  I had a 18 or 20 megapixel Sony point and shoot that worked great for super close pics, but lost it in a fire.  Dont remember the model but it was a pocket sized camera I could zoom and focus on pallet stones with excellent definition.   It was less than $200 US.   Now I can’t find a camera that will do the job for less than $500  Any suggestions?
    • Can you repair my Timex Rally also?
