JLC 497

Recommended Posts

Looking into buying a JLC 497 movement watch (40'S army issue) never worked on one this old or an automatic watch for that matter but cannot seem to find much info on how exactly how these movements work. More specifically what the part with what looks to be some sort of adjustment with "P.S.A.R." around it.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but if you mean the regulator (FS AR?), perhaps you'd be better off starting with something a little more disposable if you want to work on it yourself?

Apologies if I've got the wrong end of the stick! :)

Edit: are you talking about a WWW btw? 479 movement rather than 497?

Jesus christ no I woudnt be touching it with my mits :laugh:, just my curiosity was driving me mad as to what that part was (only worked on newish quartz movements), I'll stick to the 80's a less expensive toys to tinker with. 

Thanks though that has brung an end to a 3 hour google quest
