Hi WUS members,
I have searched WUS & some other sites to obtain information about removing and reinserting the winding stem for an eta 2836-2 movement.
Mostly enthusiasts have documented the necessity for using the correct size screw driver to depress the button just far enough in the hole that resides in the centre of a recessed slot.
However, there is not the same accordance when it comes to the position of the winding stem. Some say it should be in the winding position and the release button only needs to be pressed for withdrawing the stem, but not when reinserting.
Others have documented the winding stem should be all the way out in the hand setting position and there is the half way view i.e. the stem should be in the date setting position before the stem is taken out.
I would be interested in hearing what other members think before I attempt to remove the stem.
