Was repairing a bulova diver from the 60ies I think and the rotor was loose and the watch wouldn’t run.5f2b9c31254729c796e4895f06c254dc.jpg

I decided to disassemble it a bit.69eccf89383c6859ddb3c2d261c4e094.jpg27d7ef21bf4ba5fd888be1dfb38afa78.jpgbb0633adfecfa2cc8dbc432c49cff93a.jpg15110451afbaf34a16dccf68d1e5f8f2.jpg

I removed the second plate and when I flipped it over I found that there were two screws loose on a sub-plate the pushes up on the arbor / pivot that the rotor center hole slides over. Once I tightened the two screws the arbor pushed up. 2ba6207ecedde574579c441f1abe7fe6.jpgfae8e142673d4734c180b4d172fec2f7.jpg9f61d3f244f634a3a061c705badde16a.jpg

I reassembled the watch and it worked perfectly. Tomorrow I clean and polish the case as well.

I got a Buren with loose rotor, pretty sure would have to bush the rotor, axle needs work too. Would go machining or spend the rest of my life searching for replacement parts. TIA.

I would sludge hammer the watch or spent the equivalent of 1000 hours trying to fix it
