    Rolex Timing Washers...What and Where?

    I’ve tried searching this subject but I just end up with a bunch of discussions on how to adjust my washing machine.
    The Rolex tech. documents list these parts and they come in thicknesses like 1 /100, 5/100, etc,...where do they go and what are they used for?
    Thanks.

    Old style balance wheels had timing screws around the rim. They go under a screw to adjust the rate. Most of those balance wheels were bi-metal and split so varying the weight distribution also affects the temperature compensation.
    If it's a good meter, it's a Fluke.
    Hang my self when I get enough rope. (It's a Tubes lyric, from the mid 70's; song's called "White Punks on Dope". Enough said?)
    The difference between 12 and 21 is dyslexia.

    Okay, and that explains why they are so small and thin.
    Thanks.
