TIMING A VINTAGE WATCH

90% OF ALL VINTAGE WATCHES HAVE NATURAL WEAR. IN ADDITION, UNLESS A PART IS WORN TO THE DEGREE IT STOPS THE WATCH FROM RUNNING OR CREATE A SITUATION THAT DISALLOWS ADJUSTING TO A MAXIMUM OF 2 MINUTES A DAY, IT IS NOT CHANGED.

ADDITIONALLY, MOST PARTS CANNOT BE REPLACED WITH NOS PART, THE PARTS SIMPLY ARE UNAVAILABLE; INSTEAD, USED PARTS ARE FOUND-- MEANING THEY ALSO ARE WORN.

THE PIC ABOVE IDENTIFIES THE MAIN PIVOTS -TOP & BOTTOM- OF WHEELS . ADDITIONALLY THE MAIN SPRING BARREL IS ACTUALLY WHEEL # ONE. IT HAS A "GEAR" OR "ATTACHED WHEEL" THAT TRANSFERS POWER TO THE CENTER WHEEL THAT OPERATES THE SECOND HAND OR THE WHEEL THAT OPERATE THE SUB SECOND HAND.

ADJUSTMENTS ARE LIMITED TO ONE ON 85% OF ALL WATCHES. ONLY A FAST/SLOW ADJUSTMENT IS AVAILABLE EVEN THOUGH A WRIST OR POCKET WATCH WILL HAVE GRAVITATIONAL PULL IN 6 DIRECTIONS.

FACE UP
FACE DOWN
LEFT
RIGHT
FORWARD
BACKWARD

ON HIGHER END WATCHES ADJUSTING TO FACE UP NORMALLY WORKS FINE-- EXCEPT WHERE NORMAL AGED PIVOT/WHEEL WEAR IS PROMINENT. IN THAT CASE WE USUALLY ADJUST BY HAND AND THEN WITH ELECTRONIC DEVICE.

THUS THE FINAL ADJUSTING IS WITH A TIMING DEVICE WHICH NOT ONLY READS WHETHER THE MOVEMENT IS SLOW OR FAST, BUT ENABLES FINE ADJUSTING AND TESTING OVER SEVERAL HOURS.  ALSO, ADJUSTING THE BEAT IS DEMONSTRATED BY THE LINES OF THE READ OUT. POORLY RUNNING WATCHES WILL DISPLAY MULTIPLE ERRATIC LINES OF DIFFERENT ANGLES.

WHEN ADJUSTING A WWI OR WWII OR KOREAN WAR ERA WATCH, POCKET OR WRIST, WE WILL GET IT AS CLOSE TO PERFECT AS POSSIBLE, THEN MANUALLY ADJUST TO A QUARTZ CLOCK. THUS THE TIME DEVICE MAY RUN SLIGHTLY FAST OR SLOW UNTIL THE WATCH WEARS IN . THIS IS NOT A COME-ONE OR STORY. FACT IS, WE ARE EXTREMELY GOOD AT TIMING WATCHES THAT CANNOT BE TIMED USING STANDARD PROCEDURES.

BOTTOM LINE IS WHEN YOU RECEIVE A TIME PIECE ALLOW SEVERAL WEEKS OF WEARING OFF AND ON.

WHILE WEARING A WATCH WILL NOT MAKE UP FOR POOR SETTINGS, IN 90% OF CASES WE KNOW THE WATCH WILL READ WITHIN O TO 60 SECONDS EVERY 24HRS.

SOME WATCHES MY BE SLIGHTLY HIGHER, BUT IF IT IS NOT AN AUTOMATIC, AS LONG AS MAX OF 2 MINUTE A DAY IT IS FINE.

BUT, IF YOUR TIME PIECE, AFTER WEARING ON AND OFF FOR SEVERAL WEEKS MAINTAINS A FEW MINUTES OF TIME DIFFERENCE PER DAY, SEND IT IN FOR FREE RE-TIMING.

REMEMBER, WE WILL ADJUST ANY TIME DURING YOUR FIRST YEAR FOR FREE. SHIPPING IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. AFTER YOUR YEAR WARRANTY YOU CAN EXTEND IT FOR 50.00 OR PAY DISCOUNTED FEES FOR WORK.
