How long have we not been able to help with this interesting issue? I'm very surprised and happy to discuss it.

Projects / Service: Rolex Submariner 14060 cal. 3000

Sub came to service.

Inside is the caliber 3000.

First the autowinding module comes off.

Everything is as should be. Shock protection with escape wheel doesn't come as a shock.

Dial side. Large hour wheel makes hand relation more robust.

Under the barrel wheel some dried grease. Service is due indeed.

Balance wheel comes off. Same finishing continues in all levels.

Some thought should be put into this caliber. Barrel drives directly the center pinion. Cannon pinion attaches directly to the center pinion. So hours and minutes are driven from here. But seconds are driven through normal going train and 4th wheel.
What this achieves is second hand is more resistant to forces caused by manual time setting.

Center pinion on the dial side.
Nice little detail is a stone inside the center pinion to support 4th wheel. This gives second hand less side shake and less friction on to the going train.

This one is nice detail too, though somewhat more common in other movements. Autowinding pushes the intermediate crown wheel away. This makes autowinding more efficient and less wear occurs over long period of time.

Notice the hacking lever.

Hacking lever better visible. Hacking lever attaches directly into the setting lever.

New mainspring is ordered.

Washed up.

Hacking lever.

New mainspring.

Necessary unfocused picture.

Barrel bridge and center pinion assembled.

Cannon pinion attached.

Keyless works. Setting lever is secured by own cover.

Keyless works ready.

Going train.

Manual wind components.

Initial readings.

Waiting for the hands.

Autowinding module. Very similar construction to compared to old Rolex auto-movements.

In the picture the wheel that attaches on the end of the rotor axle is missing. This is not held by anything but when autowinding module is attached into the movement, movement supports that wheel in place.

Movement cased

Rolex waterproof tested and ready.

Projects / Service: Fortis Automatic GMT 596.10.148 cal. ETA 2893-2

This Fortis came to a service with minor damages. Lume was missing from the hour hand and cracked from the minute hand, GMT hand quick set was jamming and the spring bar was missing from the bracelet.

The "modern" ETA caliber is very familiar to others, big bearing for the rotor, especially.

As the caliber has GMT option, few wheels are added into the dial side. The GMT wheel sits on top of hour wheel and transmission wheel for these is also a clutch wheel. When GMT hand is advanced, the hand always advances in steps, because of the notches in the transmission wheel. Same quickset driving wheel drives both GMT and date quick set.

The small wheel just before quickset driving wheel was missing few teeth, causing quickset to jam.

Caliber in pieces.

And washed up.

Rest of the movement is very standard ETA. Keyless works..

New mainspring..

Barrel and 2nd wheel placed.

Barrel bridge getting assembled. The gear ratio makes hand wind almost undetectable.

Barrel bridge placed.

Going train.

Ticking again.

Initial readings.

Dial side got far before I noticed to take a picture.

Autowinding module getting assembled.

One ratchet wheel makes this movement to autowind only to one direction.

Automodule assembled.

Movement cased.

Autowinding module added.

New luminous compound was added to the hands.

Just google "ETA 251.262 pdf" and you'll find manual for this caliber. Other than that, you need to be more specific what you want to know about this. :)
