  1. Hello Matt, can I ask you what case will perfectly fit a Gen 3186 movement.

     

    thanks

  2. I have used the 3135 yuki in several datejust cases made for a 2824. The only issue I found, was the dial fitting in the groove under the rehaut. Some times the groove cut from the factory is a little to tight for the dial to seat flush with the bottom of the rehaut. In each case, I opened the groove just slightly and the dial would sit flush under the rehaut. Then the stem would line up perfectly. Hope this helps.
  3. Did you oil the flat spots on the pallet fork jewels. That's the only time I've had a noisy tic. Other than that I have no idea.
  4. Try removing the stem again. Be sure when you pull the stem to the time set position , that the set lever is all the way out in the yoke corrector. Then when you reinstall the stem that the set lever goes all the way in on the yoke corrector. I can’t imagine anything that would stop it, especially with the stop lever removed. Good luck
  5. No, it’s there. With it dial down and the stem on your right the release button is slightly above the stem. Press it very gently.
  6. I think the 2824 escape wheel is different than the 2836 and 34. I agree with everyone, if it’s a gen eta, pallet should work great
  7. Escape wheel must be steady. As you know, it spins quite freely with the pallet fork removed. The only time I’ve see an escape rock is because one of the staffs is broken, usually the one in the base plate, or I have changed the second or third wheel, and their the wrong one. Either could be to tall and not letting the train bridge seat properly. Then the escape wheel will wobble because it’s not fully in the jewel in the train bridge. Good luck.
  8. I have a black only.
  9. No! Any time you polish electro gold plating, you loose some of the plating. Not so on the new gold watches that have the “hot plating” process.
  10. I got your text. Typically when using a pipan dial, the first thing to ck is the position of the stem in the case tube. Be sure it's centered. Mount the movement in the case the way it will be when you're finished. You can raise or lower the movement with movement ring. Once that's done you can work on the hand height. Typically the long post hands are shorter in length than the standard hands, You will probably need to change the cannon pinon. I'm sure you've seen references to an H4. eta also makes an H5 which is usually what you need for a 4 digit build. You will need to change the hour whe
  11. Did you know that Gene Simmons from KISS got them started to fame. He did
  12. Did you change the pallet fork or escape wheel? Those need to be matched. You never gave the numbers from your machine. What are they? Need the numbers in all 3 position
  13. Mark, can’t remember the last time I saw a post from you. Hope you and yours are safe up there in the Seattle are.
