    Lightbulb Tissot Newtimer 45602 Questions

    Howdy,

    I'm a new owner of a black-dialed, model 45602 Newtimer and have a few questions for other owners or those in the know.

    First, hand setting is stiff: is this normal, or does the watch need service?

    Second, what's the lift angle for the 2581 movement?

    Third, the crystal feels like it has a protective film on it, but as far as I can tell, it does not: is this normal?

    Thank you,

    Doug

    From an F6 forum regular, I learned the lift angle is 52 degrees.

    FYI

    1/How is the feeling when you are winding it with the crown ? stiff also ?
    2/Lift angle 52° is correct.
    3/there is no protective film on the crystal, it just that the black is printed on the inside face of the crystal and may produce this feeling.

    The Newtimer is one or the only one automatic jumping hour watch.
    I used to have one but didn't keep it because finally it's so easy to read time compare to a classic with hand.
    I found that the date is too deep in the dial also.

    willbur,

    Hello again.

    Update on stiff hand setting: it's not normal. In fact, a part or parts broke while I was setting the hands recently. Thus, my recent F6 query.

    I didn't wind using the crown much, but when I did, it did not feel stiff.

    I agree with you that it's more difficult to tell the time with a direct-read dial--I really have to think about it. I also agree with you about the date, my eyes are old and unless I have very good lighting I can't read the date either. Regardless, I really like the watch and have a "thing" for Tissot watches.

    BTW, how do you prounce Tissot? Tee-sew? Tis-oh? Tee-sought? Tis-ought? Or something else? My son has a classmate whose father is Swiss and she insists it's pronounced Tis-ought.

    Thanks again,

    Doug

    Didn't make the link with your F6 request....
    I will bet that the cannon pinion was too tight and may missing of lubrication that explain that it was difficult to set time.
