5
Now you have to remove the hands and dial. First unplug the second hand, then the minute (this should be done with the help of forceps). Remove the dial with the hour hand. Inspect switch mechanism to verify the grip of the wheels, powersaw them in forward and reverse directions. Check the correct fixing of the transfer and winding levers.
6
Disconnect the balance bridge with the balance node. To do this, two rotations to Unscrew the screw column of the spiral and separate the node balance of the bridge. Remove the balance mechanism, it should not hang at the end of the spiral.
7
When fully deflated clockwork spring remove the anchor bridge and the anchor.
8
Disconnect from the mechanism Central, intermediate, and second escape wheel. Examine the teeth, check the position of the wheels and the adhesion between the wheels and corresponding gears. Disconnect the drum, open it and check the status of the mainspring.
9
Rinse the parts of the clock mechanism in gasoline, plugging it in a small transparent container so that the fuel level does not exceed 2 cm. First rinse large items and then smaller.
