How To Adjust Your Rep's Timing & Beat


Recommended Posts

Thanks for this. My new DSSDv5 is running +15secs a day. If I can figure out how to loosen the compression ring, I'll take a whack at it 8) I suppose I'll have to buy one of those 3-prong adjustable thingies. People say they are dangerous, tho.

May be a bit repetitive and requires a modicum of patience, but it's always worked for me. I currently have six (ETAs 2836-2s & 2671-2s, and Asian 7750s & 7753s) all synched with each other, a

Damn.

I opened this thread hoping to see how to change the beat as my Portuguese Chrono needs it badly.

Looks like I'll have to figure it out and write a tutorial. :(

Same process mate! Even if you have an an asian 21j

No, that's changing the timing, not the beat.

Beat-rate setting requires more than just making sure it keeps good time.

Oups..."Beat" was the word I missed :)

That's definitely another more difficult process.

Sorry I can't help you...

There's a software program you can use, I'm sure there's a link to it somewhere on the Geek. If not send me a PM on here or on repgeek & I can send it to you.

You'll still have to sort out the pickup but there's a few schematics on the web you can use, I still need to make a new one as my last one wasn't sensitive enough to be accurate

I have the software (eTimer demo) running on my Mac under Crossover. As soon as I've got it set up and working, I'll be doing a tutorial on how to use it.

Get a sticky ball, works on 99% of cases and wont scratch at all. the 3 pronged thingys are crap on rolex type case backs.

Unfortunately, the caseback is 2 piece. Only the outer ring is threaded and the inner titanium cover is gasketed. Spin that inner cover, and I bet the gasket is torn to pieces as it tightens down. You have to compress the Ti pressure dome and then spin the fixing ring down.

Have the picture links been broken here? Got a 2836 movement and it's running about 15 minutes fast/day... brand new.. what do i do?

Your watch might have been magnetized if it is running 15 minutes fast/day as opposed to 15 seconds fast/day. In any case, the adjustment described here will not be able to address a 15 minute/day issue. You should send it back to your seller, or bring it to a watchmaker.
