Hi everyone! I bought an Aeromatic 1912 A1308 watch (have not received it yet) and I was wondering what caliber does it use. By chance I found the attached pictures, I believe it's the same caliber but I found no information on it, only that it may be a Seagull. Can somebody help?
Join me as I strip down, service and review this Chinese ETA 2892-A2 clone. Seagull ST1812 watch movement. There was a couple of issues to deal with but altogether a fairly impressive movement for the price.
I just got a new Chinese movement (TY2867), and when I push the winder in, the movement won't start. I've manually wind it a few times, pull the winder out and push it back in.
What could be the issue? Thanks
I am struggling to find a way to remove the movement on this large Ingersoll watch from its case. Cannot seem to find any screws that pin the movement to the case.
Tried to remove the steel spacer, it is un-movable even with pliers.
Does it mean that that I have to come from the glass? If through the glass, do I pry on the small opening on the bezel (see the second picture attached)?
Thank you for the answers!
The bottom one yes and appears clean, i have oiled properly it now. Not the top one because I would need to remove the balance wheel to unscrew from bottom, the regulator is not boot type, I am afraid I will never mount it again, it's too tiny piece for my skills.
All these tests are passing fine, in my opinion.
I made a round of cleaning in ultrasonic for balance wheel and bridge, trying to better oiling, I will see if any change tomorrow.
No shim originally found... I will eventually consider one or two hour wheel shim/spacers eventually, if that woudl still make a difference.
Thanks again! I'll try to make good use of your suggestions, this movement means a lot to me.
Have a Sternkreuz press i use for most glasses. Love it. I bought a second one on tradera some month ago for spares. Also have an other which looks like a Robur but not 100% sure it's a Robur. Was thinking i could make an adapter so i could use some other dies as the Robur ones cost a lot of money. Maybe i can part with that as i have to many presses anyway.
