    how i fixed my eta 2892

    I have a Victorinox 500 auto and I accidentally dropped it and I found the watch is running 4 seconds faster every minute. So I do some searching online I found couple posts about how people fix the Seiko 7s26 - and it worked on my 500 auto - smacked the back of the watch 4 times and the watch ran normally again.

    Probably the hairspring got hung up on something when you dropped it. Same thing happened to me once. Smacking it knocked it loose again.

    I've found you can't go wrong with three and then faking a fourth.

    Same thing happened with my Baume and Mercier Hampton Annual Calendar, which has an ETA 2892-A2 and a Dubois Depraz module.

    Glad it's working, but I hope not too many people actually apply the same "fix".
