ETA 2472 - Disassembling the date mechanism

Recommended Posts

The following sequence of pictures shows how to disassemble the date mechanism of ETA calibre 2472 and ETA calibre 2474.

Previously I posted a sequence of pictures showing how to disassemble the automatic device of ETA calibres 2472 and 2474 as well as ETA calibres 2450 to 2454. You’ll find the post here.

    • Welcome to Capitalism, Liberalism, contemporary Chinese Communism, and let me throw Neo-colonialism in there too. These are the well accepted standards in 95% of the world now. Right. But, who has invested and is able to to make an object or part supposedly has the right to sell for the profit goals that he freely decides. That according to common sense and the laws that "we" accepted since centuries. Good luck meeting them, if he can, then must be taxed accordingly. Ooops.. I've mentioned taxes and international business, are we sure that is all right in that field?  Many individuals on the planet have become incredibly rich, but (most of) the states are deeply in debt, so many be is not right? Then about the non sustainability of consumerism, with which I'm also horrified. What about all the other bad habits and luxuries of the Western World plus India (for those that can afford it) and China? I am referring to pervasive use of private transportation, cheap flying everywhere, these are the most directly related to pollution and energy reserves depletion. Food wastage and pervasive packaging does not help either. And then we like to run countless refrigerators, and heatings even when maybe it is not really required, the list could go on. Some soothe a bit our guilty conscience supporting ecologism initiatives, international aid to poor countries, etc. I will be happy if these will do some, but I'm afraid it will not. Right now a lot of people in the world has lost income and are really struggling, they will jump on anything that will let them pay off their debt and feed themselves, I don't think they will listen to any "sustainable economy" argument. The fact is that unfortunately, sustainability means degrowth, at least in the short and medium term. And nobody has ever been elected promising that, actually word in is an euphemism for depression. In my country the Green party has practically disappeared, but the problems they were fighting have not. Concluding. Do I like how the world works, no. Do I have a recipe or idea for that to change, or hope that it will? Not really. I just try to limit my behaviors that are shamefully anti-planet or enrich who's rich already. Admittedly, I have mixed results in doing that, probably just like all the others reading here. But, when it comes to what is luxury, unnecessary item like mechanical watches, it doesn't really prevent me to sleep the notion that some rich people in a rich country dictates their rules when it comes to extracting money from other (more or less) rich people. I focus on economical / used watches which personally I like, for which is easy to find parts, good thing they also very popular so I can also do a bit of trade and build reputation with guys in my same social range. If someone comes with a part that can't be had I try to find an alternative solution, explain that "Swiss are just like that", and move on. I find pointless and a bit narrow minded to keep beating the drum against Swiss watch brands policies when the world is devastated by immense greediness, injustice, and plain craziness.  
    • Hi Guys  I hope you have all been keeping safe and well.  Since I ended up with my grandfathers Timex Marlin I have been down a bit of a rabbit hole. What started out as a simple set lever change has spiralled in a very short space of time into a bit of an obsession. Admittedly, along the way I broke a pallet fork (or two) while bending dial feet, after carrying out a  "Timex Service", I also damaged an escape wheel ..and a hairspring ... But the M25 specifically has been a brilliant starting point for me gaining experience with working on watches.  I went from using the service manual and photos at every stage, asking lots silly questions and relying on the patience and generosity of all you guys (particularly Transporter, JerseyMo, AndyHull & watchweazol) to a point now where I am buying job lots of parts & separating them into individual projects and sourcing more... For me the connection hasn't stopped there as I learnt along the way that a number of my Wife's relatives worked for Timex in Scotland and I was able to have some great conversations with them about the history of Timex and some stories behind watches I have been working on.  I just wanted to share my experiences a little and give thanks to everyone that has been patient with me and helped me along the way, hopefully in time I can start to pay it forward in some ways and no doubt Ill have more questions soon.  Cheers  Dave     
    • There is no restriction for basic mov't like 7S26, 6R15, etc you can get all parts. Going up to middle-level you can send a request and they may try to get it. No parts for Grand Seiko, which can only be serviced in Japan. Not really. There is no material house that sells online in Japan, and even if there was they would probably not ship overseas. You can, however browe on Yahoo! Yapan and buy there using an agent.
    • Fault at third wheel. ( minute)  Clean and inspect all ( gear teeth and pinion) of the  minute wheel under high magnification. There is a slight possibility of bent pivot or damaged pivot hole,  enlarged pivot hole cause depthing and exacerbate the condition.  
    • Hi Matt You can gain access to the barrel and pop it off to take a look, but it will mean separating the plates and dismantling.
