Reading timegrapher

Question

Hello. 

I am working on a vtg. Citizen cal.7520 automatic movement.

I have put the watch on the timegrapher 

The graph looks OK but the beat error shows 9.9ms. I presumed that beat error should be around 1.0~2.0 given the shape of the graph.

Is the beat error actually bad or the timegrapher is wrong??

Thank you!20190820_215938.thumb.jpg.43d0bb2e8db96edfab37053a72be6b42.jpg

What happens is that drawing of the exit line carry over so it may viisually overlap. The reading of more than 9.9ms is correct. Already years ago I had opened a topic with the same issue, you can find it with the search function.

Different issue, but the subject line seems to fit.

I'd guess the discontinuities come every turn of the escape wheel.  It happens in the 12 down position but not 12 up or horizontal. In those positions there's just a little burp.  Loose jewel?

      is the Is price difference from the Timegrapher 1000, to the 1900 worth it?
       
      Any input appreciated as will be purchasing one soon. Don' want to waste money that could then be spent on more movements ..... :)

      Hello Everyone,
      Padd here from the UK.
      It all started with a desire to fix a Submariner replica I bought off a lucky lucky man in Pisa, Italy while on a European tour.
      Next thing I know I'm investigating Submariner replicas and building my own, signed by me, using a Seagull ST2130 movement, adventure watch.
      Now I'm hooked, I took inspiration from Marks videos, now I'm happily starting to work on parts of the movement, and have recovered one or two movements where the stem came out, but wouldn't stay back in. I have built a few watches for friends and relations, but now I need to be able to service them when they come back to me.
      I also have a couple of movements that run really badly, so I will be practising on those over the winter weekends. Full repair/servicing kit IS my Christmas present.
      I really want to get one of those ST2130's, serviced and tweaked by me, doing a -------------------------- on my timegrapher. not a -.'-.'''--,'.'.' (and worse) that they do at the moment.
      I wont start to list my watch collection, but it runs from a Casio digital to a Rolex pocket watch with Seikos, Citizens, Omegas and home builds in the mix.
      Must do Mark's course, but I'm afraid I may have already learned 60+% of it already.

      Just in case, I came across this "Watch-O-Scope" software. To those who have a need for it. Also here is an instructional video how to install. I hope it will help somebody here.

      I have gotten hold on a Elma Star vibrograf. Does anyone know if you can still buy paper and carbon for this machine?
