Question about Timegrapher app results


Recommended Posts

Hello :)

I measured my Omega Caliber 1120 through an timegrapher app. (Dial Up, full wind)

I know the app is not very accurate.

I checked about +100s/d difference and sharply tilted graph .

The odd thing is that the bottom part of the graph is not printed every 100+- seconds.(red-colored circle)

Is this a feature of the timegrapher, or does it indicate abnormal state of movement component?

 

Thank you for the comments.

In  most cases an embedded microphone doesn't give a signal strong enough. So an amplified one has to be used.

I hope so. But it's strange that it wasn't printed for 5 seconds on a regular basis.

I'll consider buying a timegrapher :)

      Hello all,
      I'm a web developer/watch nerd, and I have been building a web app for awhile for tracking real world performance of my watches. Initially, I was building it for myself as I wasn't satisfied with the existing offerings. But after lots of heavy use and tweaking, I recently decided to open it up for free public use. I posted about it a couple days ago on the r/watches Reddit, but it occurred to me this may be an even more fitting community for sharing the tool.
      Although, at this point, the app is pretty much custom tailored for my personal use, I do think it has a pretty nice feature set that most watch enthusiasts might find useful. I'd love for any of you to try it out and share any feedback you might have; my new goal is to make this the go to standard tool of its sort.

      Hi, my name is Ross. I am a rookie watch enthusiast and I am really puzzled here.
      Could someone explain to me what kind of a problem am I facing with my timegrapher?
      I do two sets of measurements with the same watch (1 day or 6 days apart) and receive vastly different results - to the point of being completely different from what I observe in real life. 
      For example, my timegrapher shows that my watch is running fast (or ahead of time), while in real life I observe that it runs 7 seconds per day behind. I even recorded a video about it so you could see it for yourself: https://youtu.be/mhGzf6aLMlY
      How should I interpret that? Am I doing anything wrong?

      Hello. 
      I am working on a vtg. Citizen cal.7520 automatic movement.
      I have put the watch on the timegrapher 
      The graph looks OK but the beat error shows 9.9ms. I presumed that beat error should be around 1.0~2.0 given the shape of the graph.
      Is the beat error actually bad or the timegrapher is wrong??
      Thank you!

      is the Is price difference from the Timegrapher 1000, to the 1900 worth it?
       
      Any input appreciated as will be purchasing one soon. Don' want to waste money that could then be spent on more movements ..... :)

    • I bought this for my new watch bench. It is nice but because of the way you work on a watch bench, the lamp is mounted on the same plane as your work space (this is higher than if it were a typical work bench).  As a result, the lamp cannot pivot upward enough to get optimal positions. So, what I had to do was design and print an short extender that pushes the fulcrum of the lamp away from the manufactured pivot point.  This allows me more range of motion. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
    • This purchase must qualify:
    • Please keep us posted though. It's a beautiful clock and well worth a bit of time and effort to get it back to it's original glory. Good luck!
    • Did a bit more today on my Hettich. I also mucked around with practising on the top plate from the second Hettich that I bought. The calico wheel can leave marks and I am being gentle. I am certainly not pushing the plate into the wheel. I could easily stall the bench grinder that I am polishing on. I am wondering if Hettich started to use a lower grade of brass? I still cannot polish the brass to a mirror finish. On my Hettich (older) I have had to emery one of the posts that supports the movement and after 600 grit then 1500 grit, straight to Tripoli on my stitched wheel, then green on the calico wheel and the post is spotless. Absolutely gleams. post has a steel nut on the top of it that was rusty and affected by the battery acid. It is now polished as best as can be done and then I mucked around with a bit of heat and have changed the colour of the nut which looks quite good now. It was black originally. I have done several jobs now by hand where a having a lathe would have been so much quicker. Have to get rid of the Esprit first. Then I might have a chance.
