POCKET WATCH

IMG_0575.JPG (148740 bytes)

THE SECONDS PINION HAS A WHEEL THAT IS PART OF THE DRIVE TRAIN
THE WATCH WILL NOT RUN IF IT IS DAMAGED

IMG_0576.JPG (121441 bytes)

THIS WHEEL RUNS THE SECOND HAND
BUT, IT ALSO IS THE CENTER WHEEL OF THE WHEEL TRAIN
WHICH MEANS IF THE WATCH IS RUNNING THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH
THE SECONDS PINION . IF THE WATCH WAS WORKING AND THE
SECONDS HAD WORKING, THAT MEANS IT IS PERFECT AS FAR AS OPERATION

NOTE: THE SHAFT IS THE THICK PART
THEN A BRASS WHEEL IS PRESSED ON
THEN A STEEL GEAR IS PRESSED
THE BOTTOM OF SHAFT IS MILLED TO MAKE A JEWEL PINION
JEWEL PINION FITS IN JEWEL AND IS THINNER THEN SHAFT
THEN THE TOP IS MILLED TO MAKE A JEWEL PINION WHICH FITS THROUGH TOP JEWEL
IT IS LONGER SO THE SECOND HAND CAN FIT OVER THE AMOUNT
THAT PROTRUBES THROUGH TOP JEWEL

IMG_0574.JPG (141201 bytes)

NOW, THE TOP WHEEL SHAFT SECONDS PINION "TIP" CAN BE BROKEN
--BUT NOT EASILY-- SOMEONE MUST TRY TO PLACE THE HAND ON AND
BREAK IT, IT CAN BREAK IF WATCH IS DROPPED AND DIAL MOVES, SLICING IT.

IF THE WATCH YOU ARE LOOKING AT HAS A SECOND HAND ATTACHED
AND IT IS RUNNING WHEN YOU GET IT OR LOOK AT IT AT A STORE OR GARAGE SALE
IT IS FINE. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO BREAK IT AND NO AMOUNT OF RUNNING WILL BREAK


EXCEPTNG SOMEONE MUST TRY TO PLACE THE HAND ON AND
BREAK IT, IT CAN BREAK IF WATCH IS DROPPED AND DIAL MOVES, SLICING IT.

IF YOU BANG THE WATCH, HIT IT, KNOCK IT AGAINST SOMETHING/SOMEHOW
YOU CANNOT BREAK THE SHAFT PINION BUT YOU CAN LOOSEN THE HAND
IT MAY NOT COME OFF RIGHT AWAY, IT MAY WOBBLE OR SHOW SOME SIGNS
OF BEING LOOSE THEN COME OFF

U-TUBE SHOWS SECOND HAND RUNNING

1- THERE IS NO WAY A SECOND HAND WILL RUN IF THERE IS ANY PROBLEM WITH THE PINION
2- THERE IS NO WAY TO FIT A HAND IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE PINION
3-  IF THE WATCH IS RUNNING THE PINION WILL BE RUNNING
4- IF THE PINION IS BROKEN, THE WATCH WILL RUN BUT THERE IS NO WAY TO ATTACHE THE HAND
5- IF THE PINION IS WHEEL OR GEAR IS DAMAGED ON THE SECONDS WHEEL, THE WATCH WILL NOT RUN
6- IF THE HAND COMES OFF THAT IS AN INDICATION THAT EITHER IT SIMPLY CAME OFF
OR IT WAS KNOCKED HARD ENOUGH FOR THE G-FORCE TO PUSH IT OFF
