UPDATED COMPLETED PICS
DO NOT SHAKE YOUR POLEROUTER LIKE A SEIKO
YOU SHOULD WIND YOUR POLEROUTER
AND
THEN LET THE MICRO ROTOR TAKE OVER

IN HE 1950’S THE WORLD WAS SEEKING A QUICKER ROUTE TO CALIFORNIA FROM EUROPE. IT AS KNOWN THAT FLYING OVER THE NORTH POLE WOULD SAVE MORE THAN A THOUSAND MILES. SCANDINAVIAN AIRLINES SYSTEMS WOULD OPEN NE ROUTES OVER THE NORTH POLE. THE PILOTS HAD TO ATTEND AN ARTIC FLIGHT SCHOOL TO LEARN HOW TO FLY OVER THE SNOW AND ICE, THE MAGNETIC FIELDS AND TO BE PREPARED FOR EMERGENCIES. THE INITIAL FLIGHTS WERE FRONT PAGE AND LIKE NIVADA CROTON, WITH THEIR ANTARTICA WATCHES, UNIVERSAL GENEVA DECIDED TO CASH IN ON ALL THE PRESS BY MANUFACTURING THE MOST PHENOMINAL WATCHES EVER MADE AT THE TIME; A MICRO-ROTOR AUTOMATIC PRECISION WRIT WATCH THAT WOULD RESIST THE STRONG MAGNETIC FIELD OF THE POLAR REGION. THEY BECAME THE OFFICIAL CHRONOMETERS OF THE SCANDUNAVIAN AIRLINES.AND, SOON WERE A HIT ALL OVER THE WORLD DUE TO THE MICRO-ROTOR- THE WOLDS SMALLEST AUTOMATIC ROTOR,

IMG_6597.JPG (188031 bytes)

WE BEGIN WITH A PRETTY MUCH SCARRED POLEROUTER  1-69
LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE HAS BEEN ACTIVE WITH SHARP TWEEZERS
LOTS OF SCRATCHING. THE BABY WINDS BUT WILL NOT RUN.
BALANCE LOOKS GOOD. HAIR SPRING COILED RIGHT BUT BUNCHING UP.

WE WILL NOT REMOVE FROM CASE YET. WE WILL PERFORM
OUR EXAMINATION WITH WATCH MOVEMENT IN CASE
WHEN WE FIGURE THE PROBLEM & INFORM THE PATRON
OF COSTS, WE WILL THEN TOTALLY REMOVE AND TEAR DOWN

SO WE FIRST REMOVE THE BALANCE
NOTE DO NOT PERFORM THESE CHECKS AND REPAIRS UNLESS
YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. YOU CAN BREAK A STAFF PIVOT OR
SCREW UP THE HAIRSPRING PRETTY FAST

WE HAVE CHECKED THE MICRO-ROTOR. PRETTY SIMPLE TEST AND VIEW
PROVES IT IS WINDING MAINSPRING. THESE ARE NOT COMPLICATED.
THEY HAVE A FEW PARTS THAT CAN BE CHECKED VISUALLY

IMG_6594.JPG (114654 bytes)

ONE SCREW AND A PERFECT GENTLE TWEEZERS GRAB AND SHE LIFTS UP AND OUT

IMG_6593.JPG (109744 bytes)

IN TO THE HAIR SPRING CLEANER GOES THE BALANCE COMPLETE
ONE SHOULD NOT FORGET THAT THE TOP INCABLOC WITH JEWEL
SHOULD BE OILED AFTER SHE DRIES. BETTER NOW THEN AFTER
YOU REPLACE IT AND HAVE TO LIFT THE BRASS SPRING RETAINER AND JEWEL


THESE SMALL GLASS “DISHES” WITH ROUGH OUTER EDGES
HAVE TOPS THAT DO NOT ALLOW THE CLEANER TO EVAPORATE.
THEY COME FROM CHINA AND ARE ON EBAY
LET ME SAY THAT THEY ARE
FANTASTIC

IMG_6583.JPG (95773 bytes)

HERE BALANCE COMPLETE WITH BALANCE COCK
IS DRIED AND TOP PIVOT JEWEL OILED

IMG_6591.JPG (195379 bytes)

 

SHE IS READY TO TEST

NOW, WITH MAIN WOUND UP
WE MANUALLY MOVE THE PALLET FORK
BACK AND FORTH WHILE VIEWING THE WHEELS
AND ESCAPEMENT WHEEL 
NO MOVEMENT AT ALL

POLEROUTER-REPAIR-1.jpg (59217 bytes)

 

WE NOW WILL REMOVE THE PALLET FORK

FIRST WE RELEASE MAINSPRING PRESSURES

IMG_6572.JPG (151986 bytes)

ABOVE YOU WILL SEE THE RELEASE FOR THE
MAIN SPRING AND BY PUSHING THE CATCH SPRING
WILL UNWIND NEVER EVER REMOVE A BRIDGE WHILE
PRESSURE REMAINS ON  MAINSPRING

YOU WILL HEAR IT UNWIND

IMG_6586.JPG (113689 bytes)

 

WE NOW REMOVE THE TWO SCREWS
FOR THE PALLET FORK BRIDGE
LIFT IT OUT
THEN THE FORK

WE NOW WIND THE MAIN SPRING GENTLY AND SEE IF THE DRIVE
TRAIN WILL SPIN THE HANDS FREELY. IT DOES NOTHING

WE WILL NOW REMOVE MAIN SPRING

.IMG_6581.JPG (176016 bytes)

THIS UNIVERSAL 1-69 FEATURES A DETACHED MANUAL WIND MECHANISM
SO WE ONCE AGAIN REMOVE PRESSURE FROM MAINSPRING

WE REMOVE CROWN WHEEL SCREW

IMG_6580.JPG (195363 bytes)

NOW LIFT WE OFF THE WHEEL RIDER REVEALING CROWN WHEEL

IMG_6578.JPG (164347 bytes)

REMOVE CROWN WHEEL AND BUSHING

IMG_6575.JPG (182288 bytes)

WE NOW MOVE TO REMOVE THE BRIDGE

IMG_6574.JPG (138234 bytes)

WE REMOVE 1ST BRIDGE SCREW

IMG_6573.JPG (127691 bytes)

WE REMOVE 2ND BRIDGE SCREW

AFTER MAKING FIXES, REPLACING A FEW PARTS
ADJUSTING THE MICRO ROTOR WE WOUND IT LIGHTLY AND
THE DRIVE TRAIN TOOK OFF WHIZZING ALONG
TIME TO RE-PLACE THE PALLET FORK AND BALANCE

IMG_6587.JPG (135733 bytes)

RATHER THAN REMOVING PRESSURE FROM MAIN
WE USED RODICO TO STOP THE TRAIN
