CLEANER RINSE AND POWER PACKED RINSE WITH LUBE FROM OTTO FREI OLD SCHOOL STUFF FOR A CHRONOGRAPH THAT WAS RUSTED TO HELL THE EBAY SELL FRETTED TO INFORM THE WORD WHAT A GREAT WATCH. ONLY PROBLEM? PARTS WERE  HELD TOGETHER BY LITERAL RUST. THE MOMENT THEY WERE DISASSEMBLED THAT WAS IT. NO MORE RE-SCREWING, NO MORE
WORKING AND ONCE PLACED INA ZENITH 5 JAR OR MY ULTRASONIC THAT WOULD BE THE DEATH NELL. THE END CAUSE  THE RUST REMOVED WOULD BE THE MORTAR HOLDING THE DARN THING TOGETHER

DISSASEMBLE THE CASE AND MOVEMENT
HEAVY RUST AND CORROSION

NOTE IN THE FUTURE USE MY CONTACT PROGRAM.

[NOT TO CUT THE SELLER DOWN, BUT IT WAS PRETTY CLEAR THAT WATER HAD INVADED THIS MOVEMENT LONG AGO/ BEHIND THE DIAL YOU SEE WHERE I CLEANED THE CORROSION OFF? IT LEFT A SMALL LAKE LOOKING INDENT WHERE THE DIAL FOOT AND ONE OF THE COUNTER HOLEHOLE SHAFTS GO THROUGH
. IT ALSO WAS PART OF WHAT YOU FELT WHEN SETTING TIME.  THAT AREA OF GRINDING

 
MINUTE/HOUR WHEEL UNDER DIAL WERE  EFFECTED WATER ENTERED THROUGH LOWER PUSHER PLATES, BRIDGES ANDPINIONS WERE EFFECTED AND AS MUCH AS WE CAN SEE MEANS THERE IS TWICE MORE WHAT WE DO NOT SEE WHAT YOU SEE IS WATER THAT EVAPORATED BUT BETWEEN THE PLATES IT SIMMERS
IT TAKES HAND REMOVAL USING THAT NASTY ORANGE CAN STINKY STUFF

BUT,  THE CASE  AND OVERALL ITS AWESOME
AND THE DIAL? AWESOME

HAND REMOVAL OF THE RUST. TWO WASHES WITH THE ZENITH JAR SYSTEM
ONE CLEANING  WITH ULTRASONIC FIGURE IS 3900 TO BUY AND 300 TO FIX IT IS WORTH 1100.00 TO 1200 APPRAISED

“SO… DAT IS DAT WE COULD’N DO NUTIN”

[GOOD FELLOWS WHEN WHEN JIMMY CONWAY CALLED AND LEARNED TOMMY DEVITO GOT WHAKED]i

A NEW MAIN SPRING AND HAIR SPRING THE HAIR SPRING HAD HAD MOISTURE LONG AGO.  ANY, ANY MOISTURE WILL EFFECT ONE. IT IS SPRING STEEL
AND IT IS PRONE TO RUST PERIOD. A NEW MINUTE WHEEL. LUCKY IT IS A LANDERON LOTS OF INTERCHANGEABLE PARTS


I WILL HAVE THE PICS UP SOON I HAVE THEM ON A DRIVE I CLEANED, RE-PLATED AND RESTORED THE CASE IT IS AWESOME LOOKS BRAND DOG ON NEW THE DIAL IS BRAND NEW BOTH ARE ORIGINAL AND THE HANDS POLISHED I CHANGED OUT THE STRAP (NO CHARGE I SIMPLY CANNOT DO ALL THIS WORKAND LEAVE THAT STRAP WILL RETURN WITH WATCH ) I WILL BE SURE TO TEST THIS ONE FOR SOURCE

occasionally series were produced with parts of different calibres.

THIS 1950’S 4 JAR CLEANER WORKS GREAT
I UTILIZE NON-AMMONIA BASED CLEANERS FOR VINTAGE WATCHES
WHILE UTILIZING A SPECIAL COATING SOLUTION IN THE FINAL RINSES
FOR OUR ULTRASONIC, WE ALSO UTILIZING A SPECIAL COATING  IN THE FINAL RINSES
BOTTOM LINE IS THE ENTIRE MOVEMENT HAS A SEMI PERMANENT COATING
BE SURE YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON SOME OF THE FEW
WATCH REPAIR DVD/CD’S YOU WANT TO COMPLETELY STRIP A MOVEMENT
BUT THERE ARE TIMES YOU WILL REMOVE BALANCE AND MAIN SPRING
AND CLEAN THE REST IN ONE PIECE

4 HANDS USE GREEN  DO NOT USE THE RED!!!!
TINY DRIP IN HOLES OF REMOVED HOUR, MINUTE + SECOND HANDS
WORK AROUND PLACE AND  DRY OVER NIGHT.
PLACE HANDS ON + USE HAND REMOVER TO REMOVE GENTLY
WAIT 4-6 HOURS PLACE HANDS AGAIN + LEAVE ON
THIS WILL STOP PROBLEMS WITH WORN VINTAGE HANDS COMING LOOSE.
LOCTIGHT DRISE IT IT DOES NOT REDRY- DOUBLE PLACEMENT INSURES ITS DRY.

A GREAT SCREW DRIVER KIT IS IMPORTANT
IF YOU CANNOT USE A SHARPENER
THE TIPS ARE AROUND 1.20
THAT ADDS UP CAUSE GOOD ONES ARE EXTREMELY BRITTLE

UPDATE

9/26/2015

BELOW IS JUST A COST ITEM. JUST HAVE TO LOCATE ARM
DENISE SAID MAIN SPRING THAT WAS ON THE UNIVERSAL POLEROUTER MICROROTOR

THIS WAS A STUPID CONTROL ARM AND A PUSHER

GOT THEM MIXED UP SORRY

 WE NOTED A PROBLEM WITH THE UPPER “TWO FUNCTION” CONTROL ARM  PUSHER CONTACT WHILE PUTTING TOGETHER. IT  WAS DISCOVERED AFTER I RESTORED THE CASE, ELECTRO CLEANED AND 24KT GOLD PLATED IT, AND WAS INSTALLING THE MOVEMENT WITH DIAL AND ADJUSTING THE PUSHERS.WE DISCOVERED THE ONE OF THE CONTROL ARM PUSHER  CONTACTS WAS ABSENT.

WHILE IT COULD HAVE BEEN RUST UNDER THE BEND IN THE CONTROL ARM THAT DISCONNECTED DURING CLEANING IN THE ZENITH JAR SYSTEM OR ULTRASONIC DUE TO THE REMOVAL OF RUST HOLDING IT, THE END OF THE “BREAK” LOOKS AS IF IT WERE “REPAIRED”. THE BREAK WAS CLEAN AND SMOOTH NOT ABRASIVE.  EVIDENCE ON THE PUSHER WAS THAT SOLDERING TO FIT A REPAIRED ARM CONTACT CHANEL TO AVOID SLIPPAGE, ALSO THE BEND SHOWS LEAD BASED SOLDER WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH METAL REPAIRS ON JEWELRY AND WATCHES. I USE SAME FOR STEEL STEM, SETLEVER AND OTHER CASE HARDENED STEEL. I NOTE THAT IT HAD TO HAVE BEEN SOLDERED AND CAME LOOSE DURING ULTRASONIC

THERE ARE TWO CONTROL CONTROLLING THE START, STOP AND RETURN OF THE CENTER CHRONOGRAPH SWEEP HAND TO TDC. CENTER HAND IS NOT THE SECONDS HAND. THE ACTUAL SECOND HAND IS THE LEFT SMALL REGISTER WITH SMALL SECONDS HAND.

THE TOP PUSHER STARTS THE CENTER CHRONOGRAPH COUNTER HAND THAT MOVES AROUND THE DIAL. CLICK IT AGAIN AND IT STOPS THE HAND WHERE IT IS AT—AT THAT “TIME” ON THE DIAL– SO YOU CAN TIME EVENTS. CLICK IT AGAIN AND THE HAND RESUMES FROM THE SPOT YOU STOPPED IT. CLICK AGAIN TO STOP….. ETC.

WHEN YOU ARE THROUGH  CLICK TO STOP THEN CLICK THE BOTTOM PUSHER TO RETURN THE COUNTER HAND TO TDC [TOP DEAD CENTER] WHICH IS THE NUMBER 12 AT TOP.

SO, THE PUSHERS CONTROL THE CONTROL ARMS THAT CONTROL THE FUNCTIONS OF START, STOP, AND RETURNING THE CENTER HAND TO TDC.

CONTROL-ARM

STEEL CONTROL ARMS CONTROLLING THESE EVENTS HAVE BENDS CALLED “PUSHER CONTACTS” THAT FLOW DOWN INTO SLOTS IN THE SIDE OF THE MOVEMENT ABOVE AND BELOW THE CROWN.

“PUSHERS” THAT GO THROUGH HOLES IN THE CASE SIDE – ABOVE AND BELOW THE CROWN- AND CONTACT THESE “PUSHER CONTACTS” THROUGH SAID “SLOTS” IN THE MOVEMENT.

PUSHING SAID”PUSHERS” CAUSES THE THE PUSHER CONTACTS TO MOVE THE ARMS WHICH MOVE THE VARIOUS CHRONOGRAPH CONTROLS.

THUS, THESE PUSHERS ACTUALLY CONTROL THE EVENTS AS DESCRIBED ABOVE.

WHILE THE CONTROL ARMS ARE FINE AND WORK FLAWLESSLY,AND HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED AND LUBRICATED, THE “BEND” THAT PROVIDES THE “CONTROL PIECE” THAT YOUR PUSHER CONTACTS TO “PUSH” INTO AND OPERATE THE UPPER CONTROLS THAT START AND STOP THE CHRONOGRAPH CENTER HAND IS SIMPLY “NOT THERE”.

IF YOU NOTICE THE ABOVE PICTURES ON RIGHT ONE SITTING SEVERALMM INTHE SLOT HAS THE [TOP] PIECE FOR THE PUSHER. THERE IS APP 2-3 TO MM FOR THE PIN TO BE IN THE SLOT WITH ROOM TO PUSH THE CONTROL SO IT CANNOT FALLOUT OR TURN OUT.

THE ONE AT BOTTOM HAS ONLY THE TOP PORTION. IT IS SMOOTH SO IT WAS NOT BROKEN OR WAS THEN FILED SMOOTH? IF YOU USE YOUR FINGER NAIL TO CLICK IT, IT WORKS FLAWLESSLY. IF I WERE TO SOLDER A PIECE TO CONTACT THE PIECE AT TOP, IT WOULD CLICK TO STOP AND START, BUT THE PUSHER WILL TURN AND THE CONTACT PIECE WILL COME OUT. UNLESS I RE SOLDER A PIECE THAT OBVIOUSLY CAME LOOSE DURING ULTRASONIC CLEANING. I ALREADY NOTE THE PUSHER WAS SOLDERED TO WORK WITH A SOLDERED CONTROL.


PUSHERdWHILE I INSPECTED THE PARTS, IT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN DIFFICULT TO MISS THIS. I DO NOT RECALL IT BEING ABSENT. I TOOK IT ALL THE WAY DOWN. I BELIEVE IT SIMPLY WAS SOLDERED. THE HEAT DRYING HAD TO CAUE THE PIECE TO COME LOOSE. IT DID NOT BELONG SO IT WAS NOT NOTICED. SAME WITH PUSHER.THE SOLDER CAME LOOSE. BUT UNDER MICROSCOPE I CAN SEE WHERE THEY USED LEAD SOLDER TO CHANGE THE PUSHER. I AM LOOKING FOR THE ARM WILL MAKE A PUSHER.

THE THIRD TIME PIECE IS AN AWESOME ILLINOIS
THAT SOMEONE ATTEMPED TO REILLUMINAT
E.
THE FACT IS THE DIAL WAS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION YET THEY USED A GREE COLOR MODERN GERMAN DEVELOPED GREEN COLOR PHOSPHORUS LUMINOVA. PROBLEM WITH THIS WAS THAT ILLINOISE USED RADIUM. YES IT MORE THAN LIKELY “GLOWED” GREEN
ALL THE TIME BUT THIS DOES NOT GLOW UNLESS CHARGED BY LIGHT, THUS THE HOB LOOKS BAD. YOU CAN TELL IT WAS PLACED ON AFTER.ECTYREMLY BAD AND EFFECTS THE PRICE. THUGH, THE INVESTER MORE THAN LIKELY WAS ABLE TO RECEIVE TIS BEAUTY AT
A LOWER THAN APPRAISED VALUE DUE TO THIS FACT:, CURRENTLY THE FACT IS A PLATE MUST BE MADE THAT MATCHS THE EXISTING DIAL. THEN THE DIAL IS SOAKED TO REMOVE ALLPAINT. A NEW COAT OF PAINT, THEN THE FACE IS BULT. A STAMP IS USED FOR THE BUTLERS DIAL MATCHING THE OLD ONE STAMP FOR THE OUTLONED NUMBERS, ANOTHER FOR THE NAMES AND INFO. THEN ONE STAMP FOR THE WHITE LUMINOVA THAT MATCHES
THE OUTLINED NUMBERS. THAT MEANS LL NUMBERS ARE FILLED AT ONE TIME. THEN THE HANDS ARE HAND FILLED. WALLAH. LOOKS LIKE IT DID ORIGINSALLY.
WORTH 2 TO 4 TIMES THE VALUE 700 TO 900 APPRAISAL
