I'm trying to repair an NH38A Ruimas watch. The watch fell on the floor, the hour hand was floating freely and was sometimes stopped by a circle they glued on the dial around the opened eye ...
The thickness of this circle does not help to set back the hands, also there is an edge around the dial that makes things uncomfortable.
The hour hand is sometimes too low and falling in the open eye ... and now it is difficult to set time as the hour hand and the minute hand are _moving together_.
I set the time approximatly to see how the hands and watch will behave , the hands seem to be able to move ok, _but_ the time is not kept ok.
This watch looks very well indeed, i love it and therefore i would like to try to fix all this.
Do you think the movement is going wrong or is it only the hands that are improperly set ?
I did try already by i think i may not have set the hands in the right way. Is there a mandatory way to put back the hands ?
Here's what i did :
- Adding a bit of paper to protect the dial, then putting back the hour hand on 12 and then checking if it moves ok with the crown, it did move ok :)
- then putting the hour hand on 6 and putting back the minute hand on 12 . And then checking if it moves ok with the crown, both did move ok :)
- Then adding the second hand on top of these but when doing this the hour hand was on 6, but the minute hand was near 1. Is this a mistake ?
I used a small paper to protect the dial but maybe it was too thick (it is a yellow sheet of paper i used, a type which is a bit thicker than an A4 sheet of paper i'm thus wondering if it had stopped the hour hand too high, or something like that ?)
Can you help me with this ?
Thank you ;)
