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??
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.

Hi guys and girls, I hadn't really been into more than one watch for most of my life, first was a Timex from my Grandad, then an old Seiko Auto from my dad, it broke and he took it back, another Seiko 150 sports and then an uncommon Seiko Chrono which I had for 12 years, which I stupidly sold on Ebay.. then suddenly the bug bit, a Citizen diver, then modded Seiko skx, Casio Gulfmaster, Seiko Monster, another Citizen diver, Steinhart ocean one, Ocean X sharkmaster, a Seiko Flighty, sold the lot, now have a Seiko 7a28, a 7t34 and a V172...
Hi All, I have a 1950's clock which the minute hand lume has broken apart and fallen out. The lume has broken in to 4 parts and are all recoverable as they're laying on the dial. My question is can I reuse the old lume. Can it be reconstituted and if so whats the best method? I was think pecil and morter in to a fine powder then add bindng agent. Any thoughts welcome, I can't seem to find any mention in any posts. James
