Remove a BREITLING HANDS ETA 7750 CHRONO.

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I have a hard time to remove the BREITLING ETA7750 chrono second hand, 

It is so tight ...I am afraid damaging the hand and chrono wheel inside. 

I need your suggestion ....thank you very much

Thank you RO63, :biggrin:
Yes, its the same movement. However, I cannot remove the second counter Hand (the one on the center). It is so tight. I am afraid damaging the parts if I pull harder. .

It can't be that tight, because its a very small small area of friction. However, someone wrote that it's easier to push small hands out with the dial itself (clear plastic applied for protection and loss prevention).

A watchmaker friend of mine says that whenever he services a breitling that has never been serviced before, the seconds hand always comes off the tube. He just puts it back on with a staking set. I don't have any advice, that's just what I've heard about this, not sure if there is a way around it.

fit under the hand, and firmly pull upwards.

Absolutely, good advise, otherwise the tube may come apart and you will have to source another hand! This is very important since they are usually tight.

Cheers,

Bob

It's a good advice indeed. Thank you

I usually remove the main chronograph hand with a presto tool, but not using it as normal, but to simply fit under the hand, and firmly pull upwards.

thank you SS Steel.

It is not easy to source a original hand. I am afraid tube come apart. ......

I didn't think you could reach the bottom of the hand tube, if it's exposed then it's by far the best option!

No you can't reach the bottom of the tube.  I am afraid tube come apart. .when pull harder.....
