line release quartz tester

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about getting one of these.  Some are cheap - £15, but cheap means two things and no one wants a cheap suit.  Good value is better


Any recommendations?


One of these just saved me a fortune when my watchmaker tested an Omega that i feared beyond repair and couldn't find a movement to replace the NFG one - three seconds on the line release and it started up again (it is now being serviced to make sure that it doesn't stop again)

yep.  That one looks like it has been knocked together by someone on the first week of an electronics course, which is putting me off these cheap ones

i have one like this, it does a few things which really is all you can do with a quartz movement, it will check circuit pulse etc, i dont use it much but handy when needed


to be honest you can do much the same with a decent quality volt meter
