Does anyone know the lift angle for the Orient 46D40 movement?
Background... I'm putting my new Ace Timer No. 1000 Timegrapher through its paces, making a nifty little chart for all my watches. But I got stumped by the only Orient in my collection, a recently acquired Futura Calendra SEU07005BX. She's a beauty. I got it because I wanted an Orient to sit alongside my Seiko's (and now I just need a Citizen to round out my Japanese collection). I read somewhere that Orient was famed for their perpetual calendars. Plus I love a slide-rule bezel. Plus it's gorgeous. Plus it was (and is) on sale dirt cheap at DutyFreeIsland. It's a discontinued model: get 'em while they last.
Try as I might, using all my considerable google powers (clicking every website returned), I simply cannot find the lift angle of this watch's movement. The only thing that came close is a few ebay auctions (believe it or not) where there was a bunch of gobbledygook in the description that seemed to indicate a lift angle of 51 degrees, but that's hardly a trustworthy source. I tried the Orient website for the watch, too, but didn't find it there. Seiko has spec sheets for their movements floating around, but I didn't find anything comparable from Orient, just this manual. I found this disassembly guide on WUS but it doesn't say anything about the lift angle, alas. It may be listed somewhere under 46D instead of 46D40. And the watch may be listed as either model SEU07005BX or FEU07005BX or CEU07005B. But I have come up empty handed, so I'm begging...
Do any of the experts here know what the lift angle is on this beauty, the Orient 46D40 movement?
