Anyone know the manufacturer if this movement

Recommended Posts


New to the forum, I am just starting my first go with trying to repair a mechanical watch that got water in it and then stopped. 

However, the watch is an old watch 70s I think and doesn't have a clear manufacturer indicated. 

Wonder if anyone can help with what type of movement this is in case I need to order parts.

Thanks for any help anyone can offer

It looks remarkably like an st 96. When I embarked on this hobby a few years ago I purchased of a well known auction site what I thought was genuine Tissots Titoni Oris etc only to find that someone in this big wide world has purchased hundreds of these movements, stamped one of the bridges with Tissot Oris or whatever and then got a group of schoolchildren to repaint the dials. That is not to say that the st 96 is not a reliable unit. Its just that I learnt the hard way. Not everything is what it seems. Sellers are reluctant to show the movement.

    • I cleaned the hole thing, and oiled it using 9010 and hp1300. On the exit stone of the first pallet I put a drop of 9010, I've seen others using it although I now it's not the best there. I didn't oiled the second pallet. I have no photos of the timegrapher screen, and as I do not have a permanent desk I have uninstaled it. I'll take some photos next time I check the watch. But the data I gave is about what you can see there, the lines are very clean and nice in all positions except crown down, where they are quite messy. Lift angle was established at 53.0. I do not think there is any other relevant information you can see on the screen, is there?
    • Does your timing machine show a graphical display you can show us? Besides swapping escapement components what other servicing have you done to this watch? Plus what sort of lubrication are you using especially on the escapement components.
    • BLEURGH! Don't know how that ever became a "delicacy" in the Philippines!
    • We need a clear picture looking in sideways at the hairspring and balance wheel in the watch. Then yes technically her out a center but it's minimal it shouldn't be the cause of amplitude problems. They hairspring not flat would be a cause of problems especially when it's touching something. Can we get timing machine results? And that includes the graphical display with the numbers.
