ETA 555.232 documentation



Hi guys,

I am working on a tag cal 165 chronograph. And it has the module 555.232 attached to it.

My module is missing the cannon pinion and the gears that that interface with the chronograph. 

Do any of you have photos or the exploded view of the 555.232 so I can see what parts are missing?

the problem will be usually tag modifies the components which is why the number after the decimal point isn't showing up on the typical lists. Like for instance at the website below has a whole bunch of 555's just don't have 232.

although second link has the parts list. So we really need is a 555 manual and the parts list you should bill of figure out what in the obtaining that that will be the challenge

conveniently it and not go spend a lot of times and 70 found you some links I'm not seeing any 555 manuals out there? But you can use a similar manual and figure out what parts you need is are all really basically the same can't quite remember but I think sometimes you can change the first number and it becomes a higher a lower grade movement so you may believe is a 255 manual for instance just to get an idea what the part numbering is and then look on the parts list.



turns out cousins has a 555 something manual is a said you're not good I probably find the exact manual but he should bill still figured out from the parts list the manual etc.

but you're still stuck with the watch companies like to make subtle little changes because they can because they were buying the movement and I'm surprised we were not a parts list of be surprised if you get some of those parts but maybe you can

    • I have this book and it does have an extensive amount of hairspring material.  I wonder how different it is from the one you list. I was looking at the breguet section several weeks ago but did not review it in prep for this exercise. I wish I had a set of those bending tweezers.  I have been looking for them but so far, no luck.
    • I don't. If this is for a watch you own, I'd suggest sending it to Omega for service/repair. Omega is a part of the Swatch Group and (as far as I know) the Swatch Group has discontinued making their component parts available to individuals for purchase. This includes individual watchmakers. Optionally you could search online (possibly eBay) for an identical watch/movement that isn't running which is available for a reasonable cost and purchase the watch as a "donor" and remove the pieces yourself and replace them in your watch. You may also find a skilled watchmaker who can make the part from scratch however the cost may be more than you'd expect (or be willing) to pay. Good luck!
    • the slow aspect is really really important.  hairspring work is not something you rush you really want to concentrate on what you're doing yes the videos that's a classic problem with the videos. For one thing in the videos most people of videos want to make a decent video they want to make you happy they want to show a good outcome and how many videos are really realistic on this is really hard and I may not succeed? another thing helps his books this is the one I find is really good  Bench Practices for Watch And clockmakers –  Henry B. Fried (Author) 1954 1974 the book is interesting in that it came in different versions in some versions don't have all the section so some versions are missing the hairspring section. They hairspring section is really really good as it covers how to fix things with hairsprings lots of things. Although Henry tends to make everything look really really simple somewhere out there I think on YouTube is a video of him straightening hairsprings. But the book works really really nicely then Amazon can be quite amusing and somebody didn't tell the people at the last link that their book is very rare in the prices very bad just way too low in place notice Amazon prices are not desirable at all which is what sometimes happens with Amazon I have to wonder how they come up with those prices https://www.amazon.com/Bench-practices-watch-clockmakers-Henry/dp/B0006CEZ08 https://www.amazon.com/Bench-Practices-Watch-Clockmakers-Henry/dp/096562191X https://www.clockworks.com/product/bench-practices-for-watch-and-clockmakers-by-henry-b-fried                
    • Very nice Andy 👍, I do like Seiko as does Watchie. This is a lovely early 5 example, are you pleased with it ? I think i may win with mine though from a carboot this morning 🙂. Not fair to steal your thunder today matey. I'll post it up tomorrow along with a 404, if we are allowed the 5 quid mark now. 
    • Yes, quite a bit was removed but checked with mentor and came to the same conclusion as yourself, been on test out of the case for two full winds now
