Great looking watch.

Interesting story and it is good that you have the knowledge to investigate and try to fix these things.

That being said - shouldn't the company fix this for you to your satisfaction and send you one that is working correctly?

I hope it keeps running for you! Thanks for sharing the issue and your "resolution".

I do, as you did, as well! Sometimes my investigations lead to a successful conclusion and sometimes, not! I rarely send anything in for repair, and so far, I've been lucky with my repair attempts, and only "ruined" one watch dial.

You have a very nice timepiece. Thanks for sharing your pics!

Why do you think it ran for him when he got it back? The screws must have settled in a place where the rotor could still do it's job? anyway solid company and OP knows he will get taken care of if need be! Get pics!:pic

Very interesting thread. I am too big of a WUS (NOT WIS) to crack open and try to fix one, so kudos to you. I have a 1000M SL Atlantis that won't wind (slips), and I sent back a 2824-2 VX-200 that died on the winder multiple times and had a VERY low power reserve, so the 2824-2 isn't IMMUNE to defects. Overall it's obviously a great movement, but any machine can have problems.

I guess I'll take my Atlantis to a local watchmaker because I got it used and the WR is little more than bragging rights for me...

Best of luck with the DWatch. It looks awesome with the mesh and those hands.
