New Videos Uploaded Folks :) Rolex 3135 Movement

Recommended Posts

Awesome as usual Mark!

...and just in the nick of time, I was nearly going to enter therapy for "Watch Repair Channel" video withdrawal disorder ... or WRCVW for short :p

 

That Rolex Movement is simply gorgeous.  Even the quality of the jewels they use are clearly superior to the mainstream movements I've worked on.

 

Thanks again for uploading more videos Mark, they are a most excellent training resource and an inspiration us guys to become better at watch repairing.

Just great - well worth waiting for! I know very little about the inside of Rolexes, and the videos demonstrated the complexity of the movement and the superb quality of the parts. You can see why they cost what they do.

 

Many thanks, Mark - a nice treat for a Thursday morning.

Thanks guys :)

 

 

BTW Mark ... where's the into music?

I think you play the piano very well, and I enjoy the little intro music at the beginning of your vids ... it's very fitting.

 

I heard a lot of stories about YouTube copyright infringement notices even on peoples own content - then I got three myself, the music was my own composition but there are deaf ears when you try to contact them. A lot easier to just omit the music :)

I got two of those notices. I just told them that they'd got their information completely wrong. They were trying to tell me a traditional tune was copyright!

 

Ignore them.

Hello!

Very nice movement there!

 

I've seen in your videos that you put the main plate into the washing machine together with the balance. But also with the jewels and spring on. 

 

Question: How does the interior of the jewels and the balance pivot get cleaned? I think it works for you, I didn't see any dirt when you oiled the cap jewel :) but how slick is the washing machine/fluid that it gets in there between the jewels and the pivot and cleans them?

 

Thank you,

Bogdan

Hi Mark,

Great job on the new videos. I had a great time watching them last night (much to the confusion of my wife). I have a couple of questions if you don't mind.

I had never seen the cover mechanism disassembled before or any documentation that it can be disassembled. How difficult is it to disassemble it and does the disassembly affect the longevity of the part. I have always been bugged by the part because I never feel like I can oil it properly. Seeing your way makes much more sense.

I was also wondering why you oiled the teeth of the reversing wheels. All of the documentation I have seen put out by Rolex states not to oil anything on the reversing wheels except for the post and pivots. Just curious as to your experiences and if this has met with good results. Thanks again for the great vids and advice!!!
