I recently brought a genuine 2824 movement. Cleaned and serviced myself, and timed on the time graph. I think I did a good job? I'm open to advice and critique. The movement came with a rado rotor, so i thought i look for a rado dial. To my luck? I found one to fit the 2824/2. 1897621999_Screenshot_20200129-023517_SamsungNotes.thumb.jpg.9da9849e4cd8542a34a127afb69894fd.jpgI brought a genuine Rado dial from a private seller on ebay, which is a lovely dial. I noticed the original hour wheel it came with was a H2. When the dial was fitted? The hour wheel barely poked out of the dial. I had to purchase another HR wheel from a seller in Switzerland, H4 size. That's was perfect. Here some pics of the movement and the results from the time graph.

Good tg readings :Bravo:

Rado has its own caliber designation engraved on some movements, Dose it on ETA 2824?

Do you have a case for it? Will you keep us posted?.

Great timings, even after 24 hours! Great job there. I've found the 2824-2 to be one of those movements you can adjust close to COSC standards for a relatively small amount of money for what it is. Also they're a real joy to work on. I bet you found that too?

I would love to see it cased up when you do

Hi Jon, yes, it's a real joy to work on these 2824, I had a great time! This is why I have a gold and nickel 2824. 

I will update with some pics once cased up. Thanks Jon!

Thanks for pointing out! I've not noticed the rado engraving? I will have a good look for it? 

I will update once cased up.

 

Thanks Nucejoe

Traditionally, A higher grade movement than Oris for example is housed in some Rado. Some come with screw micro- regulator mounted on stud carrier which gives a better control over regulating. I wonder if these good timings you got are for some part at least due to higher grade of the movement,  Also lets you approach  COSC standards. Someone may shed some light on this.

    • Hi Tom,   Mine machine is working fine but slightly out of sync (I still didnt figured out why as in the biggining it was completly fine, no issues), so I use manual overide button to move between cycles, its abit tricky as I have to watch metal disks which turns things on/off if not it will jump to another cycle (it cause a bit of an issue as it wont spin long enough to remove fluid between jars).   Regarding documentation - one Ive scanned for you was received from Elma after I contacted them, they told me that they dont have any shcemtics for this machines, I only got electronic schema for RM-90 if I recall correctly which is much more advanced and newer. Because machine is not working as I would like it, Im thinking to create a new electronic system for it based on arduino or something like that, Im not a programmer so it might be too diffcoult for me. If mainboard replacement for RM-90 would be cheaper I could use that for my machine - just got that idea  right now :). Still some parts are the same between those two machines - jars, possibly motors, heating plate etc.   Im mostly interested in American pocket watches, actually South Bend only :).   Regards,    Rafal
    • I decided to take it today... Feeling sick.  She apparently got a buyer in NY!  We're in L.A.   Yes, I could probably tell her to cancel the deal, but I won't.  If it falls through I'll take it.  
    • Old post but thought I'd comment, as it is very easy to destroy these bracelets... Michael Young restored a C&I bracelet for my 5512. And even restored, it's really floppy and, well, not spectacular. But, there's nothing like a vintage rivet bracelet- very thin and very light. Feels a lot like a leather strap. (He also repaired the end links via laser welding as the prior owner "customized" it to fit a 19mm lug width watch) But the links/rivets DO wear. Once the links open up (which you can see on the back side) the pins/rivets begin to wear. Michael opens the links and sleeves the rivets to make up the lost space as needed. Then he closes the links. As thin as the metal looks, it is quite difficult to open them without distorting them. The gap where the ends meet on the underside is 0-0.003" wide. really no gap on a brand new one (I recently sold an NOS 19mm Tudor branded bracelet) And as Old Hippy noted: they always look like links have been removed. More modern (9315/93150/93250 etc.) bracelets are tapered on the link edges, so they flow together. Rivet bracelets (both Rolex and C&I) have parallel sides to the links so they are "stepped" from 20 to 18mm at the clasp. Also, the end plates were polished and the links were brushed. C&I rivets are "hollow" (they have a small pin hole in each end) and the Rolex rivets are solid. I don't know if a threaded faux rivet could be used to replace a real one- I think the faux ones are larger diameter.
