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)?
I just rebuilt a 7002A this weekend. I was very careful with cleaning/oiling, fitted a new mainspring and used a few dots of 8213 on the barrel.
The gear train, balance are as free as they could be - amplitude about 235 deg DU/DD.
Seems about typical for the few Seiko's I have. I know they have low amplitudes, so I'm happy as it is.
I tend to just use my "metric calibrated eye", and of course files/fine grit paper.
You can use one of these, If your eye requires a little more precise calibration.
They do work, but you will still end up finishing by hand/eye with good magnification, and obviously they only work with straight blades, so not much use for drill sharpening or cross headed drivers.
