PROBLEM DEVELOPED WHEN PAINT REMOVER DID NOT EFECT THE PAINT
TO USE STRONGER CHEMICALS I CHECKED UNDER BINOCULAR SCOPE
AND UV LIGHT AND SAW DAMAGE TO BRASS UNDER PAINT

RESTORED DIAL

WE FINALLY HAVE THE MOVEMENT WORKING PERFECTLY AND IT IS TURING THE HOUR WHEEL AND THE MINUTE WHEEL PERFECTLY IN ALL POSITIONS.

THOUGH THIS BEAUTY IS OPERATIONAL, THE SECONDS “STAR WHEEL” PIECE REMAINS THE MAIN PROBLEM.

IN THE END, IF WE CANNOT DISCOVER ONE WITHIN THE NEST 2 WEEKS –THE TWO SENT ARE BEYOND REPAIR– WE WILL ATTACH A STAR WHEEL TO THE MINUTE WHEEL.

IT WILL TURN WITH THE MINUTE WHEEL. BECAUSE W/O IT, THERE IS NOTHING IN THE CENTER, NOT ONLY IS IT THE SECOND “HAND” IT IS THE FINISHING PIECE.

 

SECONDS-WHEEL STAR

THESE ARE SECONDS “STARS”

PERFECT!!! WE CHOSE THE GOLD OVER THE WHITE DIAL. NICE PERFECT PROFESSIONAL ABSOLUTELY FACTORY MATCHING DETAIL AND FINISH. PERFECT FROM THE BENRUS & SWISS NAME AND FONT TO THE RED MINUTES POINTER……. THIS IS WHAT WE CALL RESTORED TO ORIGINAL CONDITION….

6/18/2014 – 7/04/2014
CENTER STAR WHEEL USUALLY ROTATES WITH EACH SECOND
IF A NEW OLD PART IS NOT DISCOVERED OVER THE FINAL
TWO COMING WEEKS –WE HAVE ATTEMPTED TO FIND SINCE MAY–
WITHIN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS WE WILL INSTALL ON TOP
OF CENTER WHEEL IN THE CENTER OF THE MINUTE WHEEL
IF ONE IS DISCOVERED LATER ON ANY ANY TIME PATRON
CAN SEND IN AND WE WILL MOUNT IT FOR FREE
PATRON REQUIRED TO INVEST IN WHEEL PART AND FOR SHIPPING ONLY

6/18/2014 – 7/04/2014

THE DIAL RING ON RIGHT NOT FOR THIS MOVEMENT
WHEEL IS TOO SMALL

IMG_0913.JPG (169781 bytes)

THIS IS CLICKER
WHEN DIAL WHEEL IS TURNED THIS DEVICE CENTERS
THE NUMBER IN THE DIAL WIDOW

IMG_0915.JPG (129005 bytes)

IT WILL NOT WORK

 

THESE ARE SECONDS WHEELS

IMG_0909.JPG (108099 bytes)

AS YOU CAN SEE, THEY WERE BOTH AY ONE TIME GLUED
THE CENTER STAFF PINION WAS BROKE OFF
AND ONE OF THESE GLUED TO MINUTE WHEEL DIAL

IMG_0899.JPG (114059 bytes)

ONLY ONE MINUTE WHEEL DIAL WORKED
THE SECOND WHEEL WAS GLUED TO SILVER MINUTE WHEEL MOUNT

 

IMG_0896.JPG (116001 bytes)

THE MINUTE WHEEL REQUIRES WORK
THE JUMP HOUR WHEEL WAS RE GLUED PRIOR TO US
TO THE GEAR/WHEEL. SEEMS TO LEAVE THE HOUR WHEEL NUMBER SLIGHTLY TO Right
CANNOT BE UNGLUED

IMG_0908.JPG (114279 bytes)

CONTINUING TO WORK THE PROBLEMS AFTER A FEW DAY BREAK

IMG_0780.JPG (201355 bytes)

I LOVE THE PATRON WHO SHIPS 5 MOVEMENTS
IN VARIOUS ARRAY SO WE HAVE PARTS
SO FAR

–CROSS MY DRIVERS AND HOPE TO WORK–
A RUNNING MOVEMENT IS ACCOMPLISHED

AND THAT TOOK LITERALLY
18 HOURS

TO BUILD THEN REPLACE
THEN REMOVE THEN ADD
THEN BUILD THEN
ADD THEN TAKE
THEN ADD

YOU GET THE POINT

IMG_0766.JPG (126939 bytes)

THIS IS A SUPER EASY TO WORK MOVEMENT
EXCEPTING THERE WERE MANY PROBLEMS
NO EASY FIX WAS SEEN
ALL THE FOLLOWING PARTS WERE EXCHANGED
SPARES COMING FROM THE MOVEMENTS
SHOWN AT TOP

AND THEN EVEN MORE PARTS
BRIDGE JEWELS BALANCE CENTER WHEEL

SCREWS HOLDERS EVEN THE JUMPER AND A SPRING


IMG_0767.JPG (119872 bytes)

A VISUAL OF THE SCREWS AND ASSOCIATED PARTS CHANGED

IMG_0769.JPG (129919 bytes)

HERE AFTER TRIAL AND ERROR
WE HAVE A
WINDING SETTING RUNNING MOVEMENT
THE KEY IS TO FIT THE JUMP HOUR WHEEL

AND
WHILE THE MINUTE AND SECONDS WHEELS
ARE PRETTY MUCH AN ALIGN AND PRESSURE DOWN

THE BOTTOM LINE WILL BE SEEING
IF THE MOVEMENT IS UP TO
POWERING 2

[HOUR & MINUTE & SECONDS WHEELS]
WHILE POWERING THE JUMPER FOR THE
SECONDS WHEEL IS
JUMPING HOUR WHEEL

THE MINUTE/SECONDS
PLAY NO PART IN DRAG NOR REQUIRES
ANY THING BUT BASIC OPERATION

AAAAAAIMG_0766.jpg (61313 bytes)

OPERATION OF DIAL WHEELS
THE SECOND WHEEL
AND
MINUTE WHEEL
BOTH ARE LIKE NORMAL WATCH HANDS AND FIT THROUGH FRICTION
THE JUMP HOUR DIAL WHEEL UTILIZES A DEVICE SIMILAR TO DATE
CHANGING WHEELS, A JUMPER AND A SPRING HOLDER
THE HOLDER SLIPS BETWEEN THE TINES OF THE GEAR
ON THE BACK OF HOUR DIAL WHEEL
WHEN THE JUMPER FINGER CONTACTS THE TINE OF WHEEL GEAR IT
APPLIES PRESSURE TO TURN THE WHEEL ONE NOTCH AND THE
?SPRING HOLDER CLICKS IT INTO POSITION TILL THE NEXT HOUR

YET, AS I STATED, THE MINUTE AND SECONDS DIAL WHEELS OPERATE LIKE HANDS
VERY EASY AND SIMPLE
EXCEPT IT HAS TO BE PERFECT IN EVERY WAY
INCLUDING MAIN AND BALANCE
TURNING A HAND IS SIMPLE
A WHEEL WITH GEAR AND SPRING LOCK A LITTLE DIFFERENT


IMG_0773.JPG (126309 bytes)

JUMP HOUR WHEEL LEFT
WE HAVE 4 BUT ONLY TWO HAVE THE GEAR ON BACK


IMG_0777.JPG (182273 bytes)

EACH ONE IS DIFFERENT IN LOOK AND SIZE
ONLY ONE WILL FIT THIS MOVEMENT

. IMG_0779.JPG (153539 bytes)

I AM PRETTY SURE THE ABOVE WERE THE ONES UTILIZED
BUT ATTACHING THE GEAR IS TRICKY

ONLY EPOXY WILL DO
AND

THEY HAVE TO BE PERFECT
NO EXCESS NO HEIGHT ALTERATION
LET US HOPE THE GOOD WHEEL WITH GEAR WORKS

IMG_0768.JPG (104341 bytes)

AS TO THE OPERATIONAL
POWERING
MOVING
IMPORTANT
CONTROLLING
RUNNING
SIDE
OF THE
MOVEMENT?
WITH BRIDGES WHEELS BALANCE AND MORE
NO LESS THAN 11 PARTS WERE MOVED LIKE MUSICAL CHAIRS
FROM ONE TO ANOTHER MOVEMENT
A BRIDGE WITH CRACKED AND MISSING JEWELS
A MISSING CENTER WHEEL
AND
THOUGH THERE WERE 4 BRIDGES AVAILABLE
EACH HAD A PROBLEM
THE ONE THAT WAS FINE DID NOT FIT PROPERLY

SO MIX AND MATCH AND THERE SHE WAS


IMG_0775.JPG (193130 bytes)

NOTE 3 MINUTE WHEELS
NOT THE MINUTE WHEEL THAT
OPERATES OFF THE CANON PINION
POWERING THE HOUR WHEEL


JUMPING HOUR
FRICTION MINUTE
FRICTION SECOND


IN/ON THIS MOVEMENT THESE ARE DIAL SIDE
THE HOLES ARE TO SET THE SPRING HOLDER
THEY OPERATE ABOVE FACE SIDE
UNDER THE DIAL
WHICH HAS OPENINGS

IMG_0774.JPG (185087 bytes)

rock has restored the dial on right

THERE THEY ARE
SECONDS DIAL WHEEL CENTER
POINTED WHERE MINUTE DIAL WHEEL NUMERALS SHOW
TOP WINDOW FOR JUMPING HOUR DIAL WHEEL

SANDING AND MACHINE CUTTING

CASE/DIAL RESTORE BENCH
NOTE
THE STAINS ARE PERMANENT
THE LINES ARE FROM USING A STRAIGHT
EDGE RAZOR TO REMOVE PAINT AND SCRAPE CLEAN

WE ARE PREPARING TO RESTORE CASE
REPAIR MINUTE WHEEL
CUSTOM FIT STEM

TEST THE PARTS OUT

 

IMG_2810.JPG (141824 bytes)

BEZEL IS GOLD FILLED
CASE IS STEEL
IMG_2788.JPG (159223 bytes)

THIS BENRUS CASE IS SINGLE CASE –NO CASE BACK
NORMALLY REQUIRES MALE AND FEMALE TWO PART STEM
WE WILL USE THE SUPPLIED STANDARD STEM
WE WILL CUT TO FIT AND WHEN ALL IS RIGHT
PLACE CROWN ON AND HOLD STEM FROM INSIDE CASE
WHILE TURNING TO LOCK
IN EVENT IT MUST BE REMOVED
REMOVING BEZEL THEN CRYSTAL THEN DIAL
EXPOSES THE SET BRIDGE STEM ETC. SIMPLY HOLDING STEM
WITH TWEEZERS WILL ALLOW CROWN REMOVAL
REVERSE TO REINSTALL

IMG_2789.JPG (125822 bytes)

THIS IS THE DIAL BEZEL IT FITS OVER MOVEMENT
DIAL FEET GO THROUGH THE HOLES

IMG_2803.JPG (173438 bytes)

HERE SHE IS CLEANED UP
WE DO NOT WANT TO REMOVE ANY OF THE BRASS ALLOY
SO NO BUFFING SANDING OR HARSH CLEANERS
JUST A GOOD CLEANING

IMG_2792.JPG (139520 bytes)

MOVEMENT IS OPERATING FINE. NOTE LONG STEM
WE WILL REMOVE 25% OF SHOWING PORTION
SLIP INTO INNER CASE SIDE OF STEM TUBE
MOVEMENT DROPS IS

IMG_2793.JPG (127074 bytes)

IMMEDIATELY WE NOTE THAT THE MOVEMENT DOES NOT SEAT FLUSH

IMG_2794.JPG (129536 bytes)

IMG_2799.JPG (144456 bytes)

WE HAD TO USE A FLEX SHAFT WITH SANDING WHEEL
AND SAND THE FLOOR OF THE CASE
AND USE A 5 MM DIAMOND COATED FINISH STRAIGHT BUR
TO CLEAN AND ALIGN THE STEM TUBE.
NOTE THE STEM IS NEAR PERFECT
[END HAS TO BE SANDS TO CONE FINISH]

IMG_2805.JPG (125444 bytes)

WE LAY THE INNER [DIAL] HOLD BEZEL?
WE NOTE THAT THE HOUR DIAL RING AFTER HOURS AND HOURS OF WORK
STILL SETS OFF CENTER. THERE ARE TWO DIALS WITH “**STAR” WHEELS
ONLY ONE HAS THE CORRECT SIZE STAR WHEEL
IT WAS REPAIRED AND TO REMOVER THE OUTER DIAL FROM THE
CENTER PIECE COULD MEAN BREAKAGE

*NOT THE SECONDS STAR WHEEL

IMG_2790.JPG (132238 bytes)

NOTE THE STAINING
THAT IS A POOR REPAIR THE EPOXY OR WHATEVER WAS UTILIZED TRANSFERRED
THE COPPER CENTER PIECE IS THE STAR WHEEL ON BACK
TO REMOVE THE DIAL FROM THIS CENTER PIECE, DUE TO PRIOR USE OF EPOXY
WOULD DAMAGE THE HOUR WHEEL.

IMG_2822.JPG (120330 bytes)

WE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE HOW TO GET THE HOUR WHEEL
TO POSITION AT 12 AND 3. AS IN NUMBERS CENTER AT 12 POS
THE WHEEL WAS GLUED TO THE STAR WHEEL/GEAR ON BACK THAT
ACTUALLY TURNS THE HOUR WHEEL. IF IT WERE NOT ALREADY PLACED AS IT IS
PLACING THE WHEEL ON THE CANON PINION, ROTATING WITH CROWN UNTIL IT CLICKED
TO NEXT NUMBER, THEN PLACING A SLOW DRY JEWELERS CEMENT
AND DROPPING THE HOUR WHEEL POSITIONED CORRECTLY WOULD ELIMINATE THE PROBLEM

IMG_2819.JPG (130122 bytes)

NOTE HOW FAR OFF THE DIAL IS ABOVE

THE INNER DIAL HOLD RING OR BEZEL TURNS THE DIAL SO POSITION
CAN BE MODIFIED SO IT IS NOT A LOSING PROPOSITION

IMG_2807.JPG (118294 bytes)

WE HAVE THE MOVEMENT FITTING
WE FIT THE DIAL HOLD BEZEL
WE PLACED THE ORIGINAL FACTORY CRYSTAL
[THIS IS A SPECIAL CRYSTAL]

IMG_2809.JPG (152057 bytes)

THE BEZEL [CASE BEZEL WITH LUGS] FITS PROPERLY

IMG_2811.JPG (119423 bytes)

WE PLACE THE WHITE DIAL
WE ALSO INSTALLED CROWN WHICH OPERATES PROPERLY
THE RESTORED GOLD BEZEL WILL BE UTILIZED AFTER WE ARE SURE ALL
PARTS OPERATE PROPERLY WITH THE CASE CLOSED AND WHEELS ARE INSTALLED

 

IMG_2814.JPG (140320 bytes)

ALL THE PARTS FIT AS FAR AS CASE BEZEL MOVEMENT DIAL
ON CASE BEZEL RESTORE WITH A GOLD FILLED BEZEL
SMALL MARS, DEEP SCRATCHES AND OR MARKS SUCH AS THAT ABOVE THE “9”
AREA CANNOT BE REPAIRED. THE POSITION OF DIAL IS SET BY MOVING THE HOLD BEZEL
