Remove the movement from the case. Then you should be able to clean and lub the pushers in situ. 

How would you get the cleaner/lube between the sleeve and pusher shaft where I assume there is a spring?

To get the cleaner in to the pusher use an oiler dipped in the cleaner and apply to the shaft, after two or more applications gently work the shaft out and in again  applying cleaner as required untill free.

tried that with some lube and an oiler. Didn't do much. Going to try the cleaner and see it it loosens things up. Thinking more of a rust issue with the springs maybe. I can push them in but they get stuck in that inward position.

 Thanks for all the input.

Figured the pushers out.The silver part is the inner piece on the inside of the case. The brass piece with the o-ring is the outer part that gets pushed. Obviously the spring sits in between. The silver end is a tube that pressure fits over the outer piece. Has a knob like end that keeps it from slipping through  the sleeve insert, which has a large diameter on the outside and a smaller diameter on the inside. That also keeps the spring retained between the 2 pieces.

                                                                             Sorry for the poor quality.

    • Perhaps it did migrate, but someone initially stated that 4-jaws would be better, without referencing hobby machining. I think there is a reason why self-centring 3-jaw chucks are the usual choice for watchmaking. I rarely do any eccentric turning, but I do have a faceplate which I can use. Back to the original post: I can recommend getting a Burnerd or similar quality 3-jaw (German, Swiss, English, American). The Sherline chuck which jdrichard describes sounds promising too.
    • Further to John's remarks, -I would advance the hands by 12hrs, if the fault is in the calender mech then it should loose time during the day. -Note how long it runs on bench following a full day on wrist. This points to the area the fault is at.    
    • Does your app measure amplitude? Then what was your definition of fixing the watch in other words what have you done to it? One of the reasons automatic watches can have issues is if they just run out of power. It's why asked if your timing app has amplitude measurement. So in other words when the watches on the wrist it manages to keep enough power to be running as soon as you take it off your wrist did just runs out of power. Then next day's your watch still running or is it just off by a couple hours? Another Guess since basically were guessing without enough diagnostics information. I see from the picture at the link below it appears to have a calendar mechanism? There is possible you're losing your time during the calendar change but as I said it's just a guess.   http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Orient_46941  
    • Hi has anyone tried printing bezels for vintage timex watches? is there a known supplier or does anyone have any 3d models made i could use to try it. thanks
    • Hello, I finally managed to fix my fathers watch which is the reason why I started learning watch service and tinkinring, the thing is the watch runs perfectly and keeps good time as long as I'm wearing it but it's losing like 2 hours during the night when it's not on my hand. I've tried leaving it both dial up and down but it made no difference, I checked the timing with the Tickoprint app and it's -15 s/d if I remember correctly. The movement is 46941 if that makes any difference. Thank you and have a nice day.
