Here we go!! I’m looking for a new 7750 movement holder which is a bit more robust than the [email protected] plastic one. I’ve looked on Ebay and found a bergeon one and a Chinese one. Exactly the same markings and seemingly the same quality from the same factory. Anyone had any experience with these and quality issues ??

I bought a copy one of the Horia example and was impressed with the quality. Prices seemed to vary wildly and I bought it from Ali-Express for around $120 (AUD) delivered.

Can you post a link please? Thanks


I have the AF and it works pretty well, the 31mm base fits perfectly in my Bergeon 8935 and the movement holder has also been drilled to allow the sub dials to be installed on the 8935.

    • hey guys i need the nut (see pic 3) to go inside the hole (see pic 1 and 2) but as you can see if i try and drill it to size the bearings just rotate. I have tried putting a needle inbetween the bearings but that don't stop[ it spinning with the drill either. really just looking for some suggestions on how i can widen the hole without it spinning. cheers gary
    • There is absolutely no reason to install the balance without the pallet fork being fitted first unless you did some work on the balance (staff replacement, hairspring adjustment, pivot straightening / polishing, jewel replacement, etc). A few questions for you: - you did not by any chance lubricate Pallet Fork Pivots / Jewels? If you did, remove the Pallet Fork, clean it, remove any remaining oil from Top and Bottom Jewels, reinstall the Pallet Fork. That should resolve your "stopping" issue. - also, do not forget to very-very-very lightly oil contact surfaces of both Pallets with light oil. Not even a drop - just a touch with red oil pin. Good luck
    • Ok I didn't make a 3D model or anything, but laid out the most important part, the plate. The back piece is 40mm x40mm, the arm can be anything hinged any way just so that it comes down over the balance rim. The support piece for the inside of the rim can also be anything, on the old tools they were V shaped and pressed into a hole, on my friends it's a simple pin that has a notch filed in it. The notch/V permits whatever bit of screw that is sticking out inside the rim to be unharmed when working on it. The threaded holes for the pins are a 2mm thread, but anything near that would be fine.    You can see in the pics that there were different ways to hinge the arm, either with a hole drilled all the way through the 40mm back plate and the arm recessed in, or with pressed in hinges, both would have been a test of the student's patience, not becuase they are necessary. A simple hinge from a hobby store for dollhouse work or whatever is fine.   I don't know what the pin sticking out the front of the tool is for. They all have it, but?    
    • Hello all, Very, very new to this watch repair lark but reading and Youtubing my way along. No doubt you will see some exceedingly stupid questions coming along from me shortly. Thanks.
