Hello.I have been working on a vintage movement. It is German movement, PUW 1561.
It is automatic and has date with quickset function by pulling and pushing back the crown.
Before I disassembled it, the quickset did not work instead the date changed as hands passed 00:00.
However, as I am trying to put the watch back, the date won't change either by quickset or just manually.
The date disk won't move no matter how long I move the hands. I think I have assembled the date function part wrong but I have no idea how the parts should fit it.
I read a post about servicing this same movement but it did not work for me. (http://watchguy.co.uk/service-arowe-puw-1561/)
Could anyone help me how to put the date parts back in?? I attached a photo of the movement I am working on.
I'm having a watch serviced for the first time, its a vintage (1974) Seiko 5 Actus, because its running two mins fast, i don't know its past history.
Will a service include regulations or is that a separate service?
I have one of these in for service, cant figure out why the hour hand does not go round when time is set.
The hour hand sets OK although sometimes it clicks every hour and other times it runs smooth.
The minutes and seconds function fine even when setting the time.
Maybe a problem with the magnetic wheel on the date set?
I looked under the microscope and it looks like the 2 part magnetic wheel on the date side is only rotating on the bottom half and not transferring the force to the top half to the hour wheel.
Any ideas on how to remedy it and get her going again??
I have an Omega Speedmaster 1861 which is gaining 55-60 seconds per day. How can you tell if the watch needs a service or just regulating? I have checked the watch for magnetism and it is not magnetised. The watch was originally purchased in 2010. I only wear the watch a few times per month.
I have made a short video of the watch on a Timegrapher .
Any suggestions / comments would be most appreciated.
Since I was working on the Landeron 48 with wrong dial, from which I used the case and a Landeron 151 and correct dial to make a new watch, I saw this Landeron 248 sitting in the drawer at my desk and devided to finally tackle the issue it had: a slipping mainspring.
I documented the disassembly of the movement vith 3 videos, the first of which is here below:
Hope you enjoy
Yes, yes in order to remove the top screw I had to release that level what you use to stop the alarm and the stop button too. Actually the top screw goes trough the outer case and the inside frame. The inside frame was also bent, so it was actually enough to put the top screw in and tighten it to stop the clock. I straightened up the bent and now the top screw is not an issue anymore. Hopefully I can sort this out, thanks for both of your comments.
