I am rapidly falling OUT of love with the Miyota 9015 movements in my two Helson Skindivers - what a PITA they are to regulate! I've spent more time trying to get them at ~5 seconds/day fast than ALL my 10 other dive watches (ETA movements) COMBINED! My watchmaker got them (initially) to ~+5 spd about two months ago; now they are at ~+20 spd - Grrrr!!
I love my Helson Skindivers - they're long-term keepers; as such, has anyone here on f74 replaced their Miyota movement with an ETA 2824-2? I know that the Skindiver WAS originally so-equipped; I'm wondering if it's a simple R&R, or if I will need a spacer? Also:will the hands also be an R&R?
Thanks in advance for your consideration/comments!
