Hi all. Have been swapping some hands about, and on one particular 2409 movement I noticed the seconds hand pinion was protruding from the H&M hand pinion which was stopping me placing the seconds hand. I tapped it very lightly with the pliers and sure enough it went back in. Placed the seconds hand which seemed to engage fine (it was 'ticking') however when I tilt the watch the seconds hand is completely lose on its pivot (while staying on the pinion) and rotates with gravity.
Can any of you diagnose this problem, what may have happened and perhaps suggest any fix which may help me out here? I should say my watch repair skills are somewhere between limited and non-existent!
