    Rolex cal. 1570 to 1520 ?

    Why would you want to downgrade a 1570 to a 1520? It’s an inferior movement technology wise. But yes, it can be done by swapping the appropriate parts.

    Any watching maker capable of servicing a genuine 4130 will be capable of servicing this one properly. Gen parts are available but expensive. Hopefully they will sell individual movements at which point spare rep parts will be available. Any chronograph, but ESPECIALLY modular chronos like the LWO283, should be run periodically to spread the oil and keep it viscous. Never running it because you’re afraid to use it will only cause the oil to dry faster, shortening its service life.

    4130 ... dunno what happened there and edit post wasn’t available.

    At least getting it looked over. All three I’ve done so far had issues. Some easily fixed but without a source for rep parts gen might be the only solution and they’re pricey parts. Usuallly 2x what a 3135 part would be. Just be careful who you use. The 423 is not for the inexperienced. It’s critical to oil (and not oil!) the correct areas.

    Movement materials are quite a jump over SH3135. Nearly all gen parts do work. Some of the bridges were a bit of a struggle to fit. Gen autowind is a straight swap. Not sure about putting in a gen balance. I really don’t see much that needs upgrading besides Autowind, jumper for minute counter, setting jumper, setting lever. Only downside is the build QC of the movement. 2 of mine came with rusty autowind parts. One was seized and the rotor didn’t even wind. One click spring was snapped, one setting lever busted, so... yeah.

    3135 interchange..

    Oh that’s too funny. Yeah you missed me by about 6 months.

    3135 interchange..

    Yeah. It was generating WAY too much interest for a guy with a full time job and interests outside watchmaking so I turned it off.

    Yuki/SH3135 yes. SA3135 no.

    Here is my baby: Vietnam Case Gen 93150 bracelet Gen crown/tube Gen matte meters first dial(!) Gen 1520 movement Gen service insert Rep hands (boooo) All the tritium fell off the dial indices but I still like it. I just need some nice tritium hands and maybe a tritium insert (or at least a pearl)

    1655 Movement Swiss Eta 2836 Modded to 1570 Calibre

    Have you tried putting it in the date change setting and turning the crown the opposite way?
  12. V6S or V7. Newer Noob cases will even fit a gen movement perfectly. Good luck.

    you never cease to amaze me!

    SH3132 movement issue

    And be sure that the gain is adjusted on your timegrapher properly. I’ve chased problems that didn’t exist because there was “noise” in the reading.

    Yuki and JF 3135 are they the same?

    The earlier the version the better it’ll fit. As time has gone on they’ve gotten worse and worse. The V5 and lower are great. V6 OK, V7 is a pain in the ass but doable.
