mido 1117 pc1


Hey guys

This is a mido 1117 pc1 ( AKA   AS1675.)

I am still trying to get this mido to work and i think i know why it ain't winding. 

If you look at the picks the barrel bottom has teeth in it i presume to lock into teeth from below to wind the watch. As you can see i have not got that  piece it should lock into to turn it. So i mean in pics 1,2 3 there should be a cog that fits into that gap.

If you know what i am talking about. ( cos i am not sure i do) Please tell me what it is called to see if i can get one.

You are right, there should be matching gears on mainplate.

The mech is called detached manual wind, in which the winding gear is integrated inside the movement and lets you directly manual wind independent of the selfwinder mech.

I am not sure what the exact term for name of the missing part is,  I guess winding gear, it should be stated on relevent datasheet along with its reference number.

If you look in your tech sheet you will se the lower ratchet wheel should have that cog integrated in it.
It is part number 7.

I think if you look at the MIDO 1117PC1 at COUSINSUK you will find when you search for it you
will get the base movement is actually beeing an AS 1673.

So in the AS 1673 tech sheet you will find the parts you looking for like the Part 1417
which AS calls "Ratchet wheel with intermittent drive".
Just to check it is the one I took a look in MATSYS too. 

CaseCaliber    BestFit        FactoryNumber    Description
AS 1673        AUT/4290    1417/AS 1656    LOWER RATCHET WHEEL DISC 05/08/97 RC
AS 1673        AUT/4290    7/MIDO 1117P    LOWER RATCHET WHEEL DISC 05/08/97 RC
MID 1117P    AUT/4290    1417/AS 1656    LOWER RATCHET WHEEL DISC 05/08/97 RC 
MID 1117P    AUT/4290    7/MIDO 1117P    LOWER RATCHET WHEEL DISC 05/08/97 RC
MID 1117PC    AUT/4290    1417/AS 1656    LOWER RATCHET WHEEL DISC 05/08/97 RC
MID 1117PC    AUT/4290    7/MIDO 1117P    LOWER RATCHET WHEEL DISC 05/08/97 RC

So to have a complete winding system you need to ensure you have the parts 1417, 1423, 1480.

You find the tech sheet for the AS 1673 at COUSINE too.

    • Thanks @oldhippy. I was fairly sure that was how this clock was finished. What is used to finish the brass to a high shine so that you acn then lacquer over it? I would presume that something like Brasso (which oddly I can't find in Australia anymore) would leave a protective layer and interfere with a lacquer adhering properly? Please forgive the ignorant questions.
    • That's exactly what I did, and this is why it can damage the wheel : The force you apply by either levers, or hand pullers, at distance 'x' from the centre, has to be reacted by the wheel spokes. I believe there's a good chance they will bend before the pinion releases.  I tried under a microscope, and could see the centre of the wheel start to distort, so I stopped.  
    • Book suggestions noted, thanks! The winder is providing good service. The only change I made to the Mk 2 version, was to add a clamping device, so I can clamp it to a workbench when using it. I have added a small engineering lathe to my tool “arsenal” now, so I have been thinking that I might beef up the main shaft (currently just a hex bar), and turn something more custom made. But otherwise nothing planned. hope all is well with you. George  
    • You asked Are all brass clocks gilded in gold? The simple answer is no. Many are just lacquered. Modern clocks are treated with what ever to give the appearance of brass.   
    • I did ask, but the question seems to have slipped through to the keeper. Are all brass clocks gilded in gold? I have had an answer back from a firm that supplies plating kits and I am also looking into the process of gold leaf. The parts of the clock were always very polished in appearance. I presumed the brass to be polished and then lacquered (or similar) to prevent the brass from tarnishing. This thought, obviously, may be completely incorrect and it may all be gilded? So far, I have still not had a reply from Hettich themselves. I will try them again.
