Home made storage pot for watch movement

Recommended Posts

Hi, Just thought I would share. The glass pot is from Marks and Spencer, some kind of pudding was in there originally. The lid is from a Pringles tube. They fit together pretty much perfectly. I also use the Pringles lids on their own for small parts when I am working on a movement. Steve.

    • From the fact that the repeater is operated from a push button and not a slide I would say this is a LePhare movement. These were the "Timex" of complications in the day, the mechanisms were simplified to enable something resembling mass production, and the overall fit and finish of things aren't close to what might have come from the Vallee de Joux (AP, JLC, Patek, etc.). That said, it is still an interesting watch- just not worth the same as the higher end makes.
    • Or after watch Kalle's video do you just stop cleaning watches in the US cleaner if they are made from thin Aluminium sheet 😉 Paul
    • Hello, I got an old Orient Deluxe with an Orient 4951 movement in it. I tried to look on the web for technical documentation on this movement but I could not find anything. Please if you have any technical doc that will help me a lot in my project. Thanks in advance
    • Thank you everyone for your input. It is very informative. I haven’t actually tried yet to adjust the beat error closer to the zero reading because the watch is running so accurate at the moment. It has now been five days and the watch has only lost 14 seconds to date. Can I ask another question then please. If the watch is running so accurately (in my opinion) what is the benefit in trying to get the beat error back to zero on the time grapher. Will it damage anything if left as it is? Thanks again all for your responses
    • Is Kalle saying not to clean watch parts in that type of (powerful) ultrasonic, or not to clean them with ultrasonic at all? All high end professional watch cleaning machines have been ultrasonic, with or without agitation, since the '60s. I've have never, ever, had an issue from ultrasonic on watch parts.
