I was wondering how do the timegrapher phone app's out there compare to a dedicated bench top machine. I'm guessing it's all down to the piezoelectric pickup? I installed tickoprint on my phone the other day. But to get the full features you need to shell out $30, if you then also have to shell out for a piezoelectric mic, then you are almost at the same price point as a cheap chinese bench top machine!
HI EVERYONE ...I had a Seiko5 SNZG15K1 ...I started playing around with the regulator and bought a timegraph 1000 ... anyways as I was moving the beat lever the hairspring stopped . I removed the spring , wheel and cock and the spring was a mess. I just want to know do these watches come ready to regulate or do you have to turn the brass stay bits on the end that hold the spring ..I think that the spring jumped on mine .but at the time I wasn't thinking straight and ran to disassemble it when I should of looked a bit closer back then ..Thanks Lenny...........
I now considering a purchase of a timegrapher. China models is probably my immediate choice, but I have this and other hobbies learned that you sometimes might as well spend a little more since otherwise i often regret later and then must buy again.
I can read here and there that the Chinese model works fine, but what model required for example to measure a watch with Co-axial, the model 1000, 1900 or 3000 ??
Does anyone have experience with this ??
I am thinking about buying a timegrapher. I have seen some on Alibaba for about $150 including shipping costs. Has anyone here tried one of these? They are made by Wei Shi and are offered in 120 or 110 watt models. The model I have looked at is the #1000. Comments, praise, and criticism are welcomed. Help me make a decision.
There is a slight problem with some of the citizen movements . They seam to be to large distance between the gears for the second hand pinion. Bad explain but hope you get in anyway.
That makes the second hand stutter. Nothing you can do. The lever spring you can get to by taking of the rotor bridge.
