Watch Repair Talk Website Design


Mark

Recommended Posts

I decided to change the design of the site. The main reason was that I was tired of the huge banner at the top which was always there.

 

I hope you guys don't mind, however, if you prefer the old design you can change back as long as you are logged in. You will see a link at the bottom of the page "Change Theme" and I have made "Old Theme" available there.

While this topic is active, I might as well put in a suggestion: the .crosshatch CSS style of the current theme adds a lot to the rendering time and makes Safari on my Mac stutter when scrolling pages. If I remove the crosshatch (via the web inspector) scrolling speed becomes normal again. 

{    /* background: url('/Images/crosshatch.png'); */
    background-repeat: repeat;
    background-attachment: fixed;
}

Hi everybody.

 

Mark, I have a problem and I don't know if it is common to others, related with this migration, or not for all. Even I logoff my seccion, when I came again to the WRT site, I was logged on. It's happened for me for the last several logoffs.

It is normal?

Thanks

Clear your cookies, I have a website & migrated to the same software as here & some members where reporting having issues with being logged off between visits or having trouble logging on in the first place. once they cleared the sites cookie & got a fresh one everything was OK.

Hi again. I made this but still the same . :pulling-hair-out:  I really don't know what I must do to fix this (assuming that this problem is in my PC). Yesterday night I left the site with "Sign Out", but today morning I'm back already "Signed In". I don't have problem with this but if it is a problem of the site, I suppose it will better to investigate what is wrong. Any other suggestion?

I remember to did no check any box, and only was show the box asking me if I want to remember my password. I never do this for all softwares or sites. Now, I can't see any box to check as when I open the site I am already login.

 

Cheers too

The box is checked by default so you will need to click on the box to remove the check mark. Since it doesn't show now, I will assume you will need to clear the saved passwords, cookies, history, etc in the tools menu if using explorer. Then re open the page and log in, taking care of removing the default check mark and accepting cookies afterwards since the page requires it.

 

Hope it helps,

I again. I did try to do all again. Clear all my cookies and clear all my temporary internen files and historic (now every site that I go with password to login, ask me to remember or not...), I saw the checked box you told and uncheck again, and even all of this, still the same. I am not worry due I am only one that use my PC, and I bring this to here only because I thought could be a problem of the site or of the server. I can live with this and save me time to make logon . :D Anyway, my sincere thanks for the help. I appreciate.

    • Hi Fernando, read carefully what @eccentric59 wrote, it is the key to You problem. Lubricate the cannon pinion. Take care to understand what is it's function. When You set time, the train doesn't move, but only the cannon pinion moves. Put hte lever back in it's place, it has nothing to do with time setting
    • Hi fernando. Let us know how you get on.
    • OK, in You case You will assemble the movement with the line attached to the barrel and fusee and will  wind the line  entirely on the barrel after that. It is important when replacing the line to know the correct lenght of the line. The rule is that when line wound on the fudsee entirely, about 1/4 turn still to remain on the barrel. Yes, no tension. The ratchet is not placed yet, the spring in the barrel is complitelly unwound. At the end of the step the fusee is empty and the line is attached to it and strained perpendiculary to it, not on tangent. The escape wheel. Use whatever that will not damage anything. Yes, this is typing mistake, sorry. The word 'pendulum' here is not correct, You should use 'anchor' and yes, it is removed from the movement at this point, according my instruction 1 (Ihave used the word 'lever' there):   Ok, let sey the barrel arbour makes 6 full turns when winding the spring in the barrel from unwound to fully wound state of the spring. Let sey that the barrel makes 4.5 full turns when winding the clock from fully unwound (the line is on the barrel) to fully wound (the line is on the fusee) state. This means that You should not wind the spring in the barlel when adjusting the initial tension to more than 1.5 turns of the arbour of the barrel.  If You make 2 full turns, then when winding the clock, the barrel will be able to turn to only 4 turns, so the limiting device will not limit the rotation of the fusee arbour and You will be able to force the line much more than when the limiting device acts, also the power reserve will be less. Hope this is clear now... Yes, but again - not the pendulum, but the anchour.   About the loosing time... In this kind of escapement, the frequency pritty much depends on the torque. The higher torque - the highrer frequency. This is because this escapement forces the pendulum to oscillate significantly faster than it's own resonant fequency. The frequency depends on the 'depth' of the escapement too - the deeper escapement is, the lower the frequency, and the higher amplitude of pendulum oscillations. The heavier the pendulum is, the harder to the movement (the escapement torque) to force the pendulum to oscillate faster than it's own frequency. And in the end, the own pendulum frequency depends only on the pendulum lenght and a little on the suspension spring 'strenght' This are all the relations between all the factors. You can try to use the old spring (if it is not broken) and see if the clock will work faster with it. Yes, the old springs of fusee clocks sometimes give bigger torque than modern ones, no matter if they seem to be 'set' You can shorten the pendulum to achieve correct frequency. If the torque is reduced, but enough for the movement to work reliably,  then reduced torque will only lead to lessen the wear. The torque in fusee movements is more or less constant all the time, this is the function of the fusee. You can use the Clock Tuner  free app for android to adjust faster the clock rate. You will need to know the BPH of the movement, so count the teeth of the wheels and pinions and calculate the BPH
    • Hi! My bad. I meant to say that when the pallet fork is installed I cant move the wheels "using the crown in the setting position" Really in truly my number 3 was redundant and badly written (trying to explain myself went all wrong). I dismantling partially the watch (calendar, remontoir, Balance and Pallet fork). I think I would need to go that way...  Thanks for your comments...    
    • this is what happens if you don't fully do all of your research. I found the safe answer I found your exact caliber we got a mainspring number we got a price at a decent price for the original spring verified that the spring number at least on bestfit agrees with what we have so it was safe yes I did look in the GR catalog I had seen that 200 watch has a spring similar to what you perceive it should be. But to be honest I never looked at the 200 watch to see what its mainspring was. then the other amusement I went back to the bestfit online because if the 200 have the same spring I were to see that when I snipped out the image up above. Turns out they don't even show a 200 listing at all.
