      I measured my Omega Caliber 1120 through an timegrapher app. (Dial Up, full wind)
      I know the app is not very accurate.

      I checked about +100s/d difference and sharply tilted graph .
      The odd thing is that the bottom part of the graph is not printed every 100+- seconds.(red-colored circle)
      Is this a feature of the timegrapher, or does it indicate abnormal state of movement component?
      Thank you for the comments.

      Hi, my name is Ross. I am a rookie watch enthusiast and I am really puzzled here.
      Could someone explain to me what kind of a problem am I facing with my timegrapher?
      I do two sets of measurements with the same watch (1 day or 6 days apart) and receive vastly different results - to the point of being completely different from what I observe in real life. 
      For example, my timegrapher shows that my watch is running fast (or ahead of time), while in real life I observe that it runs 7 seconds per day behind. I even recorded a video about it so you could see it for yourself: https://youtu.be/mhGzf6aLMlY
      How should I interpret that? Am I doing anything wrong?

      I am working on a vtg. Citizen cal.7520 automatic movement.
      I have put the watch on the timegrapher 
      The graph looks OK but the beat error shows 9.9ms. I presumed that beat error should be around 1.0~2.0 given the shape of the graph.
      Is the beat error actually bad or the timegrapher is wrong??
      Thank you!

      Hello Everyone,
      Padd here from the UK.
      It all started with a desire to fix a Submariner replica I bought off a lucky lucky man in Pisa, Italy while on a European tour.
      Next thing I know I'm investigating Submariner replicas and building my own, signed by me, using a Seagull ST2130 movement, adventure watch.
      Now I'm hooked, I took inspiration from Marks videos, now I'm happily starting to work on parts of the movement, and have recovered one or two movements where the stem came out, but wouldn't stay back in. I have built a few watches for friends and relations, but now I need to be able to service them when they come back to me.
      I also have a couple of movements that run really badly, so I will be practising on those over the winter weekends. Full repair/servicing kit IS my Christmas present.
      I really want to get one of those ST2130's, serviced and tweaked by me, doing a -------------------------- on my timegrapher. not a -.'-.'''--,'.'.' (and worse) that they do at the moment.
      I wont start to list my watch collection, but it runs from a Casio digital to a Rolex pocket watch with Seikos, Citizens, Omegas and home builds in the mix.
      Must do Mark's course, but I'm afraid I may have already learned 60+% of it already.

    • Yes it does. That is to adjust positional error, at least that is the idea. No need, use tweezers.
    • Hi   the regulation and the beat error adjustment are separate adjustments. I have attached the 2824-2 tech sheet for you the whole 16 pages of it .   read and enjoy      cheers 29_ETA2801.2-ETA2836.2 (6).pdf
    • I can't tell if all photos on the subject on the entire internet have been disappeared or if my 32kbs "broadband" (yes, that is less than a mid-90s dial up connection, you read that correctly) is breaking them... This is why deregulation is idiotic. Anyway... Coming soon, I'm going to need to correct some beat error on a 2824-2, and I can't tell from what little text I can find and no photos at all if the arm moves, or if it's regulated by twisting the Etachron stud. I know it's stupid question, but I don't want to open it up just to poke around and see what moves until I'm actually in there cleaning and adjusting, and if I need the etachron tool to make the task bearable, it'd be nice to know in advance. Thanks.
    • Thanks for your reply! My crown however doesn’t look as though there is anything physically there to interact with a collet to prevent it from coming out (see picture). It has to slide up and down inside the outer ‘sleeve’ and push on the ‘pushrod’ to allow you to change the time.
    • What a stunner!! Can you please elaborate about the parts? I was looking to create something similar.  Congrats dude!
