Janta / Pearl Watch Cleaning Machine


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone

 

I have been looking for a watch cleaning machine here in the U.S. and i am not finding any used Elma machines

but i did run across the Janta Machine. It is a seller in New York who sells them, i talked to him over the phone and he said that they perform very well and he has sold a lot of them. He is getting some more in Stock in about 10-14 days

 

I was just wondering if anyone here in the US has used them, and will they perform well in the long run?

i would probably use it once a week, for i don't have that many cleanings right now.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link to the seller in the US

thanks for taking the time to read this

 

 

p.s. This seller has it marked for $449.99 + Shipping

which is much lower than the ebay prices that i have seen

I think our Lawson (check out the walkthrough section) has one and he even posted some pictures of it in his Seiko 7S26 walkthrough. I believe he talks favorable about them.

 

My own opinion is that you should look up PEARL which is the direct distributor from India...Also, they offer it for half the price you were quoted...If I'm not mistaken.

It looks very much like an Elma (which I think Mark uses). I purchased & had re-furbished an L&R a couple of years ago & could not do without it now.

In my opinion if you can afford it and have the room go for it.

According to Elma the Pearl Janta is a rip-off, there was no licenced replica from India. I just got my Elma Standard from 1971 today. Searched for it for almost a year, but it is worth to wait, as this was now a bargain.

so could I have two beakers or jars with lids, fill them with watch cleaning solution and stick them in my Elma ultrasonic for cleaning.

I use a plastic tray for large parts and a mesh "thimble" for small ones.

Quick and and easy.

I like the way you marked the different sections  :)

I am thinking of trying the ultrasonic cleaning method since i have one on my desk running all the time.

I am going to order the bergeon 16mm and 23mm baskets and try that method.

i like the white tray in the picture, is that from a jewelry cleaner basket or bought separate?

thanks

Yes, cheapie from Cousins. Parts removed which are large enough go straight into it, and back.

I think that good watchmaking is more like practicality and efficiency than a parade of tools and equipment.

    • Never and others. Yes like you I do spend a fair amount of time reading the contents of this forum. I find it better that any other. clear, lucid, no Prima Donas, and most of all an easy access without adverts. All thanks to Mark. God bless you mate. You give so much to many of us. What if? No Mark? Hypothetically. A forum. I did run a forum for a few years. Really enjoyed it, but became so engrossed that it did affect my health. I gave to to others to run. Not been back. It was very successful and rivalled a number of large paying sites. No adverts, no others but me. I did ask and listen to members comments and it worked well.    Costs Having a domain name, £10 annually.  Register the site with a forum company, free. Build the site using the forum company guide lines, free. It looked and ran almost the same a Mark's. All the same facilities. The cost was only £5 per month, but counted visits (views). If I recall, it was that price for 5,000 views. Each extra 5,000 views increased the price by £2 per month. Success was my own personal undoing. From £5 per month initially, it rose to £60 a month and looked like increasing. This was 10 years ago. I could not afford that, and asked it anyone would like to take over and someone did. I would assume that this is the price that Mark is funding for us all. His return is our continued comments on the internet about his course, and the fact that many of the big names on YouTube mention him as their Tutor. Those of us who have done, and are still using, his course, benefit. In comparison to other courses, I can't believe how cheap it is, and the value is exceptional. It is the structure that gives the value. Long may Mark reign. Ross  
    • Get someone local to tig it ,very easy fix and should only take a few minutes so probably wouldn’t cost much ,or failing that get it very clean and silver solder it. Dell
    • Hi, The winding pin is not split, well that's how it was when I obtained the watch. The movement is front-loaded and here's a picture of where the case screws are fitted. The face picture is before I dismantled it.
    • I dont think mine is. Its an idea to have them all in one place if possible, then a quick screenshot will have them saved. Unless anyone has any other ideas of how to reconnect 
    • My email address is in my profile, feel free all to drop me a quick hello.
