Serviced ST96 Movement

Recommended Posts

Think it is safe to say this was over oiled.

I have now serviced it and got it running very nicely, someone had kindly cut off the dial feet :taz: so had to use some dial dots to fix the issue.

I have several watches with (I think) ST96 movements, Most of them have broken mainsprings, I'm wondering if it's a weakness with this movement :hmmm9uh:

This was the latest to suffer the bad luck although it actually broke years ago, Almost straight after I bought it but it's so nice that I can't bring myse;lf to scrap it and there's no repaires that I know of near by :sadwalk:

9ct Rodania.

Hmmm, I recalled someone saying about a place at Doncaster that repairs older watches, Probably only 25 or 30 miles from me too! :thumbsup:

Done 4 ST96 movements now and only replaced one mainspring because it looked a bit tired.

I may have got it wrong although the ST96 stands out in my mind for some reaon!!, It's years since i've messed with watches and normally, I can't remember what I had for dinner yesterday!! :mad0218:

 

EDIT- Just popped the back of the Rpodania, It's AS1714!!, My memory is worse than shot!! :(
