Ebel Stem Capture


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help with the stem of an Ebel 057.

The stem pulls out. I'm able to set the time at 1st position.

I'm not suppose to dissemble the movement as per my boss.

I'm looking for a screw to keep the stem locked in.

Am I missing something?

 

Thanks in advance,

Dave.

 

P.S. the stem looks like it needs replaced.

Should I replace?

It looks to me like it should just push in and lock in place as there appears to be a release button showing at the top middle right of your picture. You certainly require a new stem Dave.

I'm not familiar with that movement Dave, so I can't comment on it. I still think it is a button stem release though. Hopefully someone can chime in with good advice.

I didn't look close enough Oldhippy, it sure is a two piece stem. The biggest issue on close inspection would appear to be the pendant tube, it has pulled out of the case and looks in a bad way. The stem probably can be cleaned up and re-used, but a new pendant tube is required.

P.S. You're lucky if you can find an embarrassed smiley - all mine have left town! I haven't had access to smilies for a while, even if I use the 'More Reply Options'button. Where'd they go? :(

(That one I made myself. :))

This one works for me when I really need to show it.

That certainly applies to Roamers but the pendant tube is on the outside of the case in the pic at the top, rather than on the inner pan.

Yes, the pendant tube is on the case.

If the movement comes out the front then how can you get to stem release on rear of movement? You can't, hence the need for a split stem. [emoji9]

My Roamer pic... the "pan" you see is the case itself.

I can't believe how thick I'm being tonight. Especially as I'd already suggested that I was talking cobblers! I mean, I own three Roamers!!! Doh!

If the two piece stem is rusty I would always replace with new, removing the rust I found it made the stem weak and pulled a bit too hard the parts would come apart. The tubes I had a good range of spares from suppliers sometimes I'd turn one down so it would fit better but most times they would just press fit in then give a little tap with hammer and punch that would fit inside the tube from the inside and done.

My concern is the stem (2-part) should not release without depressing the release. Is there trouble in the movement? I was hoping I missed something that would let me secure it. Remember, I'm not allowed to tear it down.

I'm not sure I understand you, but here goes. The 2 part stem fits into the watch in the same way as most, if you need to remove the movement you do so by pulling the stem as if you are setting the hands but keep pulling (some can be very hard to separate) but it will part. As it's a two piece stem the movement comes out from the front so you will next need to remove the glass, your pictures don't show any ring like you have with a Roamer watch, so I would think yours should just drop out, now you can remove the other part of the stem by means of a screw or a push in piece and the part will be able to be removed from the movement. You don't need to take the watch to pieces when it comes down to the two piece stem.

I get the impression that the complete stem is pulling right out of the movement when it should still be locked in place, instead if separating as it should when pulled hard.

As Geo said already, it looks like a push release for the stem rather than a screw.

It might be the setting lever is either worn out or has moved out of place. Either way, you need to remove the dial to investigate further.

Sorry all

I'm having trouble posting.

The watch came into the store with the complaint that he stem is loose. I pulled it and both parts came out. I looked for a screw to secure the stem. Since there didn't appear to be one, I thought there might be another way I'm not aware of. I would like to disassemble, but I'm not permitted to. If I could secure the stem, I can complete the repair. As was suggested the stem needs cleaned and possibly replaced. I was hoping I may have missed something.

Thanks for being patient,

Dave

    • The problem with a watch like this is where is the technical information? I wasn't even sure that was even based on anything it looks from the link I have below it is based on a real watch well loosely based so maybe there's technical? https://calibercorner.com/pts-caliber-dg-2813/ There guess the watch company has a tiny bit of technical they acknowledge they made the watch but not seeing any service information? https://miyotamovement.com/product/8215/ I did finally find a service sheet for the watch but as it said in the first link it's not an exact clone so that will be some variations. The problem with the Chinese watches they do not supply any technical information spare parts or anything at all other than a cheap watch Which is fine until you go to service the thing and then they'll be problems. On the other hand there clone of the 6497/6498 pocketwatch is almost identical and that means that there is a Swiss tech sheet available which is very very close unlike here where there'll be some differences Now this is a much better choice for watch as they have a website. I'm attaching the technical information for your watch from the website at least they have a really decent service guide versus the Chinese. https://www.timemodule.com/             8691_276584548-Spare-parts-reference-for-the-Miyota-8205-8215-movement.pdf NH35_PL.pdf NH35_SS.pdf NH35_TG.pdf
    • Guys, thanks for your help! According to the advice of a colleague @nevenbekriev, I managed to straighten the spring. Surprisingly, it turned out completely flat. Like new. And the watch after that, for the first time since it was with me, started running late. 🙂 That's great news!!! The rotation of the weights is about 190/200 degrees. In the past 12 hours, it was 4 minutes late. I still have enough room to speed it up. Looks like everything will be OK.  Thank you very much for your help!
    • Thank you for this post. Adding on to it, I've done a little digging trying to get the most bang for my buck. So I really wanted a set that had a base. You can buy the screwdrivers for around $33 usd 10 Piece Screwdriver Set. The base is around $32 usd Rotating Screwdriver Base (Grey) plus $20 in shipping, with tax you are looking at about $90 which is an excellent deal for what you get but I still didn't want to spend that much. I saw that they had the 9 piece set w/ base for $59 usd 9 Piece Screwdriver Set W/Base and I had a 'welcome discount' and got a matching 3mm screwdriver for 99 cents. 3mm Screwdriver. (without the discount the screwdriver is $6) With free shipping my total was $66.55 usd. So, I saved about $24 to go without a slot for a 3mm screwdriver. I'll take that! I hope this helps anyone looking to save a buck or two. Also, this corrects the issue of the orange 1.8mm screwdriver. 😉
    • No hex wrench needed there. Screw driver in case of AS1475 or just push the poinst down in case of Poljot2612.
    • Well, what is written here can't be explained with the wear of the winding/sliding pinion. Probably it is some kind of delusion from You side. But it prevented the people from pointing the reason of what is happening. Otherwice, this kind of wear is one of the common problems of winding works in watch movements. It meets often in old or cheap movements, or particulary in negative stem system pocket movements where not proper adjustment of the sleeve that guides the stem is done.
