Lesson 432. Unpacking some new equipment. Crystal press, @horotec_switzerland . There is a huge difference doing a watchmaking task with proper tools and without the tool. Sometimes the difference can be as big as repaired watch vs a broken part. But surely proper equipment helps to work faster and the result is with better quality. This is why I am trying to go for high quality equipment whenever possible. This Horotec watch crystal press is one such tool I am proud of in my workshop. High quality press with high quality dies. I think this makes difference. I will use it soon on some work in the pipe. 🐺

Lesson 431. Springbars sidenote. On my prototype watch I have tried different types of straps and bracelet. One of my all time favourite, and thus recommended to the customer is a stainless steel bracelet. Unless allergy to nickel is keeping your from wearing one, it is a really easy choice - it does not wear out as easily as leather and is usually matching the watch case.. and, it won’t break nor cannot it be damaged by the water easily. Even seawater has not much effect on a 316L stainless steel bracelet. Well this is all true but I ran into an issue while gardening this morning. Suddenly my watch was off the wrist - one sprinbar gone for good. Well, I haf the spare springbars and replaced them immediately. But what if that happened on a customers wrist.. not good. I decided to run a few tests. After installing new springbars I applied some force usually provided by the clasp folding the bracelet against the arm. Only a moderate force was needed to send springbars flying across the room and bracelet coming off the watch. You can see the bent bars when swiping. I am wondering if I should use heavier bars or prebend them or both. What do you think? At the moment I mounted a nice blue leather strap with white stichings for change. 🐺

Lesson 430. The error is always where you do not look - Murphy. Tissot T27 antimagnetic, fault detection. After lowering and raising some jewels I deciced, I have to work with the balance upper jewel instead. This is older, no-incablock movement. When I removed the regulator, everything became clear. The regulator-held balance cap jewel was covering the upper balance jewel and it looked ok. But when the cap jewel was removed, the broken balance jewel was immediately visible. This also explains why the balance staff upper pivot was broken in the first place. Good thing is, I know now, what I have to do. However I gotta get new parts.. 🐺 . .

Lesson 429. Theoretical horology - train calculations. Did you know that by counting the teeth of the wheels and leaves of the pinions (the teeth at the center of the wheel, that interacts with the next wheel) you can tell much about a watch or a clock. First, you can determine how fast the clock or watch ticks. That becomes useful when working with timing and and understanding the angles of the pallet, balance and escapement wheel. But more interestingly you can tell how long the watch will go. Swipe to see calculations for my BHI theoretical exercises. Please let me know in if you found any errors. 🐺 . .

Lesson 428. Light machinery. My light sanding machine arrived recently. Finally I got to set it up. Although simple and robust it helps me alot. Fixing the screwdrivers being the main thing and aiding me in my school practical exercises being the close second. First trials went really well. I’m glad. 🐺 . .

Lesson 427. Jewelry. Tissot T27 antimagnetic, assembly, part 2. While trying to assemble the escapement a few challenges arose. First, pallet fork touching the balance wheel. After some consideration I decided to adjust the pallets lower jewel. Success? Well, actually that brought in another challenge. Now the pallet fork misses the balance staff due to being positioned too low. Solution - let’s lower the balance bottom jewel too. Now everything connects... not. Balance upper pivot does not engage with top jewel anymore. Back to square one - readjusting lower pallet jewel and lower balance jewel to original positions, perhaps making sure the endshakes are good now. This was two hours of extremely successful precision watchmaking, from learning point of view. Final draw from the day - should have adjusted the upper balance jewel
abit lower in the first place. Sometimes the outcome is just the experience and this improves the overall problem solving skills for the future. I am grateful for this, too. 🐺 . .

1st year students start the quarter with a series of filing and sawing exercises. This helps them get accustomed to working at a small scale, as well as introducing concepts such as flatness and tolerances. These brass cylinders must stand 90 degrees perpendicular to the desk, and measure within 1% of the target length. This student managed to get their cylinder well within the acceptable limits. Not bad!

Lesson 426. A birthday present. My new Junghans W277 wall clock from 1935. A lovely clock. Aboslutely not working. The escapement acts so weird, that at some point I started to suspect, it has been assembled in a totally wrong way. But no the train appears to be rolling alright. Just that the escapement - the pallet seems to engage the escape wheel only with one arm, the other arm completely not engaging. Have to disassemble it soon and take a closer look. 🐺 . .

Lititz Watch Technicum

Today, the new y1 students are being introduced to a new proficiency: filing squares. Or, in other words, a square is a circle and a circle is a square. 🤨 Here, Ben is using the lathe and roller rest to form the square, and in the second shot you see Mitchel's completed first attempt - not bad, eh?
first metal project.

Lesson 425. Tissot T27 antimagnetic assebmly, part 1. New mainspring lubricated and installed, wheeltrain assembled and lubricated. Did not get everything right frist time, but 3 runs and got all jewels properly oiled. Trainwheel free and moving nicely (did not when it arrived). But then, assembling the balance did not go too well. Pallet fork touches the balance staff and produces friction so that the balace cannot oscillate freely. Solution, have to adjust pallet upper and lower jewel to sit pallet more deeply into the base plate and avoid friction. There is also a chance that the pallet is not for Tissot T25 caliber but some other T27 series actually and have been replaced by previous watchmaker along with a washer under the balamnce cock clearly not from this watch. Contiunuing tomorrow. 🐺 . .

Lesson 424. Hands dawn. Restored. Tissot T27 Antimagnetic - The hands are the door to any watch. When I got the watch, the fands were distorted and the paint was gone, only tiny particles of paint left. The hands got ultrasonic washed. Then the shape was restored. The last part, hands got new paint. Now they are drying. Next up installing the new mainspring, assembly of the movement and lubrication of the movement. After this watch assembly. 🐺 . .

Lesson 423. Zim 2608 soviet vintage watch. A flea market star. I do not expect these to be working, no matter what flea market seller tells me about the condition. Though it is really dirt inside, it is going and keeping time, at least in fully wound state. I’ll see, how well she behaves tomorrow after 12 hours. The watch has got no gaskets whatsoever so dirt and dust can come in both from stem hole and thourgh the caseback irregularities. Perhaps a 0.3-0.5mm discreet gasket would help to increase the lifetime of the watch. No shock protection, no hacking, it’s a true 70’s soviet everyday watch. The brasscspring bars were distorted. They got straightened out as well. 🐺 . .

Lesson 422. Keeping the new balance. Tissot 27 antimagnetic radium dial gold watch restoration. As the old balance staff upper pivot was broken, it had to be replaced. So, todays challenge is to remove old balance from balance cock and drop
new one in. The hairspring and balance are extremely delicate watch details. So replacing it successfully takes concentration, understanding and experience. 🐺 . .

Lesson 421. Washit! Tissot T27 Antimagnetic - Out of the washing machine. Into the dry cleaning phase 2. Back into washing machine. Dry cleaning finishing. Pegging all end every jewel. Assembly ansd lubricating for balance lower cap jewel. And most important - correcting the shape of the distorted hour and minute hand (Thank you @watchrepairguy for hints). Coming up - new mainspring assembly. 🐺 . .

Huge thank you to @henrikkorpela @kajkorpela for an unforgettable evening in #lachauxdefonds I’ve been following @khwcc_official and Henrik for many many years, was even avid reader of @brad.jt blog of his experiences at the #watchmakingschool
Henrik and Kaj are amazing people, I’m so grateful 🙏🏼 to meet them both my journey. They so hospitable and helpful.
The feel of the #khwcc #watchmaking school has an amazing learning environment.

Kaj brought his amazing #handmade #tourbillon #watch it was eye opening to see.

I could chat for days with these two amazing guys 😁

A video of my experiences there will be released around mid-October.
Thanks again Henrik and Kaj, and also had a great chat with his students 🙏🏼🙏🏼 thanks to you all 😁

Lesson 420. Esprit 4144 ladies watch review. This is a superworkhorse - the magnificent Miyota quartz 20 series. I meet it now and then in quartz watches. This particular watch needs both strap and crystal replacement. The gasket needs to be replaced as well So replaceing the crystal, what do we need to know for this: 1)Crystal type (mineral in our case) Crystal diameter (measured at 25.1mm), crystal thickness (measured at 1mm), crystal profile (flat, smoother corners). The strap is 14mm and black smooth slim calf leather will be soft and tender to the skin of the wearer. The date window is coverd for the sake of the simplicity (customer did not want to change the date every other month manually). 🐺 . .

Lesson 419. Tissot T27 Antimagnetic - Radium watch. The watch from 19xx has radium numerals and previously hands. Its radioactive. I used gloves and a mask to work with that watch. Today I did dry cleaning of the case and movement, the jewels, disassembled the watch and prepaerd for ultrasonic. The watch has broken balance staff, and broken acrylic crystal. Watch minute and hour hands are distorte, and radium paint has sanded of by some previous watchmaker. The mainspring is done, at some point it has been broken and repaired by riveting two pieces together. Mainspring, balance and crystal will be replaced. 🐺 . .

Last week was the first week of year 2 for watchmaking school. As a post break warmup I refurbished this Ernest Borel Sea Gem with a 17 jewel movement. Cleaned and serviced, case got a new crystal, dial and hands gently cleaned. Put a new lizard embossed leather strap on it.

Lesson 418. Soundcheck - Dufa (Deutschen Uhren Fabrik) 1920’s wall clock is finished but the chiming did not sound quite right. Thank you fellow instagrammers for quick tips. Listen for yourself now. It is beautiful!🐺 . .

Lesson 417. Case closed - Dufa (Deutschen Uhren Fabrik) 1920’s wall clock is finished. With some help of @watchrepairkualalumpur I managed to restore and set chiming to corrected. Also the pallet setting is correct now. And the timing is good. It gains some seconds over the day, and is fine in every possible way! Can’t wait for tha clock to see the customer. A family relict, true and tried heavy with history and priceless in emotional value. Now back in action! Although I am not sure the short chiming should sound exactly like this. But listen for yourself. 🐺 . .

Lesson 416. Timing. - Dufa (Deutschen Uhren Fabrik) 1920’s wall clock Is an 8 day clock, it appears. Yesterday and today I have been improving the timing of the movement. I have yet to check if the timing of a clock fully wound and almost unwound is the same. The may be some difference, I hope it is not big. Another thing I have to recheck is beart error. Although it was nice immediately after assembly, it has changed to tic..toc….tic…toc…. so I have to readjust it. I am suspecting a bit loose bushing. Also the chiming is about 30 sec off. I have to find a way to fix that too somehow. 🐺 . .

🎶 Для яркого звучания мелодии в часах требуется резонатор. Можно заметить разное звучание «на весу» и «на коробке», которая служит резонатором. В интерьерных часах резонатором служит корпус. В наручных часах одна из сложностей создания звука, заключается не только в том что бы создать миниатюрный диск с программой, но и в том, что бы продумать и вместить резонатор. #watchmakingschool For the loud sound of the melody in the clock requires a resonator. You can notice a different sound “in air” and “on the box” which serves as a resonator." In the interior clock the case is a resonator. In a wristwatch one of the difficulties of creating a sound is not only to create a miniature disc with the program, but also to design and accommodate the resonator. #watchschool #часоваяшкола

Lititz Watch Technicum

The year 2 students are being introduced to real life repairs. Here, Sam has a vintage Lord Elgin watch that has a bent escape wheel pivot - he is learning how to use the Jacot tool in order to slowly and carefully true the pivot without breaking it.

Lititz Watch Technicum

Throwback Thursdays: in 2005 we had a special class of motivated, skilled and self-propelled students. So naturally we had them make a precision pendulum regulator clock. Here are some of the gear train arbors and pinions. We still make these - the current y2 students are working on a tourbillon 4:1 scale model, and soon enough will be making them. 🧐

Another drive-by shooting, this time of the y1 students introduction to metal work. They completed their saw tables, and are now using them to saw out brass for their next two projects - a base for a balance tack and 4 plates for their escapement meters. Next: filing internal corners.
