Eta G15.561 (Tissot T063.637.16.057) Date Change Calibration?

Recommended Posts

Tissot T063.637.16.057 (ETA G15.561): It is possible to calibrate the date change moment? I've tested 3 watches, and they all had problem with date change moment: 1) 22:40, 2) 23:47, 3) 23:54. But other users report that they have date change exactly at 00:00, so may be it is possible to calibrate the moment when the date is changed?

    • One thing I would point out here is that, Cousins give the barrel diameter and this is important because when you come to fit the new spring, if the barrel diameter is smaller than the internal diameter of the washer the new spring sits in, you will have to manually unwind it from the washer to fit it in the barrel. If the spring barrel size is correct (or smaller) you will be able to drop the new mainspring straight into the barrel by just pushing it out of the washer. The other thing with barrel sizes is that, if you are really having to make measurement compromises (i.e on both thickness and length) you need to make sure the spring is going to wind into the barrel. 
    • I have just finished putting back together a f300hz which had the main issue of a dead transistor assembly. I replace the part from a donor Tissot. Having confirmed the watch was running, I proceeded to service it and the put it back together. I focussed on the movement and was very careful not to interfere with the two levers that drive the movement from the tuning fork.  (Not sure what these are called). The watch seemed fine although I don’t have a method of timing the watch other than visually. ( am pretty sure my timegrapher is not going to cut it!)  I timed the watch for an hour and it seems to gain about a minute+. I left if for about 13 hours and it is running  around 15 minutes fast. I then decided to give it a stopwatch test, as the variance appeared to be large enough to detect it this way. Sure enough, testing via a stopwatch with a lap timer showed a significant gain with a 6 minute test completing in 5 minutes no 51 seconds. (See attached images, which included lap times by eye (the 5th one was definitely slow due to me losing concentration), allowing for reaction times, it looks pretty consistent.  My understanding of this movement is that the timing adjustment is via two dials at the foot of the using fork but, from what I have read, each increment is only a second, which is not going to be anything like enough and, regardless, this variance suggests something seriously wrong.   I checked the battery and it seems to be the correct one from what I have read is correct, a Renata 344. One more thing to note is that I replaced both electronic units from the donor.   So I am now a bit stuck. Any advice or pointers to where I can find additional information would be very much appreciated.
    • The silent lever should be friction tight by the domed washers, so make them more domed or add another. The movement is an  8day smiths enfield westminster Chime
    • Hi Saltire, It could be that the screw holding the lever in place isn't tight enough. If you can't tighten it any more then an additional washer should help. I have attached a photo of a silence lever from an Enfield that I have started working on. This one had two washers in place already.
    • Thanks everyone. I'll make sure I get a torch that is hot enough (probably propane) and give it a try next weekend.
