ETA Calibre 2472 Service Walkthrough

Recommended Posts

I apologize, but an error has slipped into the assembly sequence of pictures. For detailed info please see the following post:

https://www.watchrepairtalk.com/topic/12634-eta-calibre-2472-service-walkthrough/?tab=comments#comment-115897

 

When I first started out trying to service and repair watches I took a picture of every step, and I really needed those pictures as I didn’t have the knowledge to deduct where the parts should go, how they worked, and how they interacted. Now that I’ve gained some experience, I no longer need all those pictures, but I still need some pictures. For example, it’s very convenient to have pictures of the train of wheels or certain parts of a date complication, and so on. Anyway, I really enjoy taking these pictures as I go and I organize them and keep them on my OneDrive for future use.

For this project, servicing my brother’s Atira Plana housing an ETA 2472, I felt it would be fun, interesting and perhaps even useful not only to take the pictures but to edit the pictures adding visual and textual instructions. These pictures are made for my personal use and are not intended as a tutorial or to tell other people how to service an ETA 2472. The pictures simply document how I went about it. Nevertheless, I guess others may find my work useful so I’m happy to share it. There are many ways to service a watch and I’m still learning. That said, I do follow the practices taught on watchrepairlessons.com and they work very well for me!

Brilliant. I can see a close up of the parts I fitted in my service of a 2472 movement in your pics. The date wheel sticking issue is still there and viewing your strip down has given me the incentive to try and find the cause. Wish I had a decent camera so I could take pics like these. Well done thanks for sharing. What camera did you use?

Thank you! It's nothing special really. Just an iPhone 6s with a $10 macro lens. For background I use a gel cushion. I don't use a tripod but I do support my hands against the table and I often take several pictures while slightly moving the camera to and fro the part to get the best possible focus. For light I have a well lit room from the ceiling (and during the day from two large windows two meters from my left side) and then I move around the work lamp until it "looks OK/good".

Good luck with the "date wheel sticking issue"!

Thanks VWatchie

I am attempting the date wheel issue this weekend hopefully 16-11-2019. I will take some close up pics with my iPhone to see if the pics are as good. If I find the fault I'll share it. I bought a 10 x zoom for my iPhone camera, so wish me luck. Once again thank you for the detail

Kind regards

Good luck Colditz! Could the date wheel somehow be skewed? When taking the pictures try moving the light around. I've realized it makes all the difference. I do hope you find the fault. It's so valuable sharing this information!

My apologies, but I just found an error in my picture assembly sequence.

The problem is that I replace the setting lever screw after I replace the barrel bridge, when in fact the setting lever screw must be replaced before the barrel bridge. Doing it in the wrong order "works" but it will make the oscillating weight slightly foul the head of the screw and it will make it impossible to remove the stem without the setting lever detaching from the setting lever screw.

I definitely don't want to mislead anyone else to make the same sorry mistake!

    • I read somewhere (maybe the tube) that you can cure a lot of evils if you wind the spring up as you would into a mainspring winder (though a MS winder would be too large and this would have to be done on the flat of your bench for example) until it is fully and tightly coiled.  I gather this gives it its shape back and you can move on from there.  Maybe a bit of an ask for your spring though !!  Maybe worth a try as not much to lose !!
    • Well, I have just written to Mr. Sudarson at www.oldswisswatches.com and have politely asked him how he can help me with this problem. I'll keep you updated on the progress. Yes, I don't think you're wrong to assume that the cost of living and wages in India are extremely low. An alternative explanation could possibly be that the repair prices reflect the same kind of quality that the spare parts they sent me had, but I wouldn't really know.
    • I inherited a clock over 30 years ago that must have been in the family almost from new. It is identical in appearance, size, as a 1907 Urania 400 day anniversary clock but apart from a serial number stamped on the back 32638, (in the same place and font as the Urania) there are no other markings except for an S and an F on the circular weight.  The dial has no markings but I understand that this is not abnormal as often retailers added there own mark.  Is there any knowledge of a likely resource that might help provide any info. Thank you.
