      Hello. 
      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.

      Just in case, I came across this "Watch-O-Scope" software. To those who have a need for it. Also here is an instructional video how to install. I hope it will help somebody here.

      I have gotten hold on a Elma Star vibrograf. Does anyone know if you can still buy paper and carbon for this machine?

    • Hello Clockmakers, unfortunately I could not spend much time with clocks recently (what a relief for them) but now I have to read about carriage clocks. I paid £48 pounds for this one without knowing anything about carriage clocks, sounds realistic but i dont know. I have already manually cleaned the case a bit, but did not touch the movement yet. What I noticed is that every brass piece has a number stamped in it: 756 What does that mean? Serial number? Or the type? Ohh and more thing. Should it be really shiny and polished? Generally speaking? Or shall we leave the patina on? Best regards, lui  VID_20191016_002219.mp4
    • Thank you. This repair forum is fantastic on many  levels the people on here are honest and reliable and makes the whole experience pleasurable.
    • Yeah, I have allways been that ”engineer” kinda guy these things are truly amazing machines and any kind of learning related to watches intrique me on so many levels! Hope you will get the appreciation that you earn at least from these comunities if not from your family and friends ps. The pun was nice
    • There is still a cost implication especially pardon the pun starting from scratch. Sometimes it is cheaper just to replace given time constraints and materials even as a hobby, we only have a certain amount of time and money to play with. But I have to agree the satisfaction in acheiving a task like this is amazing, just wish my family and friends would realise this.  
    • I had recurring low amplitude problem, found out the oil I was using on escape teeth is either fake or older than Mr moebius himself. So @Lc130 what oil or amount are you lubiing escape teeth- pallets with?
