sorted, well I think!

Post by mikem »

Well I think my orange Vostok is fixed.....by me! 8)

Ok long story short, It broke then went back to Poland under warranty, got it back but loosing 24 seconds in 24 hours (http://www.christopherwardforum.com/vie ... f=4&t=9653) . A friend of mine knew some one who would look at it who repairs watches and get it regulated for me but when he came back with watch my mate replies, he could not get it regulated as it was running iratic and need a service!! ok how much ....£120 :shock: for a watch that had just been repaired, think not, sending it back not an option.

Well over the last week I have played with the timing and yesterday was reset at dead on 1208 hours, by end of my shift it was +1 second at 1345, this morning at 0600 was +4 and stayed there to 1335 ( checked just now and 1605 +5) So I guess its witin the -10 to +30 mean time of this movement!

Well done that man. I wouldn't dare open the back of a watch and play with its innards. I dread to think what damage I'd do.

I just had to see what could be done, I have no watch servicing experince and never taken the back off a watch before. This one as it gets warn most days and it annoyed me that it was loosing time (24 sec in 24 hrs) so I made a key from scrap alli plate to remove the back and really pleases it worked, a bit heath robinson but works and no scratches on the case too :D :D

It took a bit of luck to as moving the regulator to start with made it about 2 min fast in 24 hrs! :oops:
Back it goes in very, very small movement then was too slow and back to square one!!
Moved it regulator again, ....a nants c**k width and hay presto :lol: :lol: :lol:
All this done with a full 24 hours before moving regulator again.

time check today with gmt 0803 and 9 seconds


Heath robinson key and moded screwdriver .....kiss :lol:
