This example has way too much side shake.
ETA 2370, 3rd wheel lower jewel.
Seems that the pivot itself is not touching the jewel at all, but the axle.

Escapement / How to determine if balance wheel has too much side shake?

I like checking the movement with microscope. Even with 10x-loupe this much balance wheel side shake is very difficult to spot.

General Discussion / Introduction

I became interested of watches when I was reaching my 30th birthday and I wanted something special for me.
-Well, I ended up getting a mechanical watch and in the process I decided I am going to service it by myself.
So, here I am, reaching for that goal.
I started this forum, because I think I'm not the only one interested fixing my own piece. It's not impossible - though it's not easy either.

The main purpose for this forum is to provide easy access to various techniques needed in the watch overhaul/repair process.
While I've been dealing with watches, I've hoarded some watch utilities. These will be up for grasps in the near future.

What's you story?

You can upload pictures to the forum, but all of them will be resized to 800x600 resolution (at max).

If you want to present very detailed pictures, use 3rd party photo storage, like photopucket, etc.
