Murks, the mic shown is only able to read outside diameters. It can not read an inside diameter (like the ID of a pivot diameter in a jewel). If you have measured the outside diameter of one of the pivot shafts that would make sense. If you have measured the outside diameter of a jewel that would make sense. The OD of a jewel in a small movement might be approx. 1mm while in a large movement it might be 2mm. A pivot diameter would likely be somewhere around 0.4mm.

Hello Murks, try as follows. Go slowly. Complete one step, then go on to the next.

1. Close the micrometer by turning the ratchet knob, that's the small knob at the end. You should feel and hear the ratchet clicking when the jaws are closed. The knob will still turn. Always use this knob when taking measurements.

2. Press the button on the left with the label on/off - set. The display will come on and you will see a number. Write it down, please. If the number is 0.000mm, then everything is OK and you can start measuring. If the number is not 0.000mm, do step 3.

3. Press the on/off - reset button and hold it down until 0.000mm appears on the display. Now take your finger off the button. You are ready to start measuring.

Please let me know if this helps.
