Where should hands be before removal/replacing on ETA 28XX?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

Happy New Year, hope everyone is well.

 

When removing and replacing hands on an ETA 2846 that does not have a calendar wheel to worry about, is there a certain time setting that the three hands should be in to make it easier for removal and replacing?  In other words, are there any potential problems that could happen if I don't have the hands in a certain setting before removal and replacing?    I assume it's more about access to the hands with the tools but being new to automatic movements I thought I'd better ask before attempting.

 

Thank you.

Without a date, it doesn't really matter where they are when you remove them and where you place them back on. I always do 12:00 so I can line them up when placing them on and have everything the same way they were when I removed them.

OK, thank you very much.  I was thinking that putting them all at 12 so that they are in same position when installing new ones would be a good idea so thanks for confirming.
