  1. How on earth would a dislodged lume blob cause poor timekeeping?
  2. I adjusted the time keeping as after testing the vostok with a timegrapher program on my android phone it was running slow. Now the watch has been running ok and only lost 15 seconds over the last 24 hour period while being worn and did 40hrs running just previous to that. Is there a reason adjusting the time keeping of the watch may have sorted the problem of the watch stopping after only a few hours run time?
  3. Im going to strip the movement down if the mechanical parts are kaput then I will happily let go of the other parts.
  4. Thanks. Found a movement but cheaper to just buy a whole watch. I might look for another movement to put in the case though.
  5. Hi, I have a Casio MW320. It seems to be stuck in a hacked position. The hands do not move but the second hand just trembles. The crown and adjuster come all the way out and i suspect some part of the mechanism for locking the crown/adjuster in place is broken. The digital part of the watch works fine. Is it possible to fix? Also any idea how to find out the movement type for procuring a replacement as there are no part numbers on it and ebay searches just come up with whole watches. Cheers
  6. Thanks i think I'll buy a new movement and use the old one as a practice serviceing peice
  7. Hi my Vistok Amphibia will run but then stops randomly. Anything from 15 minutes to several hours after winding. It makes no difference whether worn or unworn. Any ideas where to start? The watch is about 20 years old and was worn regularly for about five years until the problem started around ten years ago. Cheers.
  8. Balance wheel stem is toast ive tried researching replacement parts and it seems FHF parts do exist but no idea how to identify a part number. Also not really worth it financially. Shame though.
  9. Thanks. I'll try removing the pallet frame to have a better look. Making a new stem would be beyond me as would fitting a new one.
  10. Hi, I bought this pocket watch movement just to learn the basic architecture of a watch movement. It doesn't run as the balance wheel has a problem. I cant get it to seat between its bearings even though the stem appears to be ok. Even though i only have the movement for learning purposes it would be nice to get it running and if that means finding a replacement part then I would need to know the identity of the movement. I believe it was made for Kays & Co a catalogue shopping company in the fifties but my movement sleuthing skills can go no further. https://www.flickr.com/photos/186400071@N04/shares/2336M6

  12. I have the same query. I just bought an old pocket watch movement to learn on. Some previous owner has clearly attempted to service the movement and used what appears to be truck engine sump oil. I was wondering if modern silicone lubricants are used today in watch making and servicing.
