Nah mate, it wasn't stupid at all, if you dont know you dont know and if you dont ask you might never know. 

But anyways, that was kinda obvious 😉

You need a truing caliper tool, see Bergeon 1883-04 tool.

That tool looks like an instrument of torture from the time of the Spanish Inquisition. I'll google about this tool, thanks !

That's expensive one actually, may be you know cheaper copies of this tool?

You can pick old good quality pre owned ones for a fraction of that. Just ask to see the condition of the nibs, ideally with both truing and poising sets of nibs, the truing one have holes in the sides and concave ends to accept the conical portion of the staff pivot.

Oh gosh that's next level of watch repair art

Doesn't hurt to think next level, you already need a pair of calipers to check if the wheel is true. You could easily pick up a pair for 20 - 30 quid, I've paid much less for a pair.

5 min/day when amplitude is 280 degr is not sticky hairspring. Can we see good picture of the hairspring? What is the regulator position? Is the hairspring original to the balance, or replaced from another one?

Hi, as I remember the problem was in the hairspring position. It was slightly not parallel to the balance cock. That what my boss told me about it

We need to know if the regulator is set to the 'minimum' and still the watch is faster than normal. When I say regulator 'to the minimum', I don't mean the fine regulation screwis turned to the minimum, but the regulator  turned back right to the stud holder. That's why I asked for a photo.

I'll be able to make a photo tomorrow only

Hello everyone, do you know is there any difference between pallet fork and escapement wheel for eta 2846 (21.600) and 2824 (28.800) ? 

According to the Jules Borel interchange site they're not interchangeable, in fact the 2846 pallet fork and escape wheel appear to be unique to that caliber.

Try here.

You first select the maker, then the caliber, then the part. It will then show you all the other calibers that use that same part.

I tried it both ways, first checking the 2824 parts which turn out to be common to a lot of other calibers, but not the 2846. Then I tried the 2846 and it seems that there are no other calibers that use those parts, so I guess they are uniquie to the 2846.

Greetings everyone. This piece of junk is now showing me different indications in different  positions. I'm in one step to crash this mechanism. Please help 😄

If you know what can cause such problem, so please let me know 

 

DD amplitude is a bit lower than DU, so you might want to clean the balance jewel on the mainplate.

When vertical, you are losing about 40° amplitude, which is expected, but the line is pretty flat.

So what is your problem ?

The real test is not the timegrapher, but wearing it for several days.

    • Well I put the spa on Gumtree (selling service) to try and sell it as it only needs a recirc pump to get it going. However, it weighs circa 250kg, so there's 4 fairly strong guys, and I would have to remove the sliding door in the room completely to be able to get it out, as well as clearing out a multitude of potted plants and the Alfresco outdoor setting to be able to get it out. Then move nearly everything in the back of the garage to be able to push it through to the front of the house. I would also need to hire furniture skates to be able to shift it around as carrying it is out of the question. Then someone would need a trailer to get it to their place as you won't get it on the back of a ute. So, the only answer is, out with the reciprocating saw and cut it all up into manageable pieces. Crying shame as it is in really good nick. I was only asking $1,500 and only got two bites, but it would only take something to go wrong with removing the sliding door etc that everything I make on the sale could go out the door on repairs etc. It would have been nice to be able to turn it into tools etc, but que sera sera. I don't know about the rest of the world, but there just seems to be very little interest from people wanting to buy things secondhand.  
    • I would like to see the movement. The watch is the movement. Anyone can print a name on a dial and sell it as "the maker".
    • Thanks for your answers! There seems to be a contradiction between these two answers, so perhaps I need to clarify. The flat and convex jewels look identical on the side facing away from the pivot shoulder. That is, there is an oil reservoir. I don't know if that changes anything but I thought it was safest to clarify since I didn't include a picture of the jewels from the opposite side.
    • unfortunately paying attention to details bumps up the cost. Which is why they shortchange on manufacturing steps if they can.
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum. We all look forward to your contributions and continued involvement.  When it comes to tools buy the best you can afford a good set of watch makers screwdrivers if you look after them will last you a life time. I recommend Dumont tweezers Number 3 and number 5 for fine work, you can build up from there. You will need different strength eye glasses. Some now like to work using a microscope. Pliers the box jointed ones are best they don't go out of line.
