Timex Electric - Measuring coil resistance

Recommended Posts

A couple of weeks ago a member asked how to measure the coil resistance of a Timex Electric. As I'm working on a dead Timex Quartz, I took some photos to show how it's done.

May I ask what kind of meter I should use to test the coil?  I'm having what I believe are coil problems with my watch.  Also need to check for completed circuit.


If you look at the above photo, the coil terminates on either side of the balance staff. The one on the left is the common ground and the one on the right goes to a pin that will touch the contact wire.


On the other side, the contact pin is just under the roller table. So to measure the resistance, you must contact this pin and any metal part of the balance.

Hope this helps.
