Repair Revue calibre T56

P1120551A client has sent in a super cool Revue diver calibre T56. It’s not running properly and making a horrible sound when winding manually.

P1120553

MSR was created by Revue to manufacture movements. Just like Eterna created ETA. This is their automatic T56.

P1120555

I remove the osculating weight.

P1120557

Movement out of the case.

P1120559

Hands and dial removed.

P1120560

I start taking apart the setting/ winding mechanism and the date mechanism.

P1120561

Here you can see gear train layout.

P1120701

I have cleaned the movement and it’s ready to be put back together.

P1120702

I fit the mainspring into the cleaned barrel.

P1120703

I see that the balance moves freely. It was a little deformed and got a little tweak.

P1120704

The movement did not move freely. The sweep second wheel was touching the third wheel, so I replaced that.

P1120707

Oops I forgot to take apart the clutch pinion. The hour and minute hand are driven from the barrel via this pinion.

P1120708

Best way to remove the pinion is using the Platax  tool

P1120709

I clean the pinion and lubricate it. I press the clutch back onto the pinion using the staking set.

P1120705

You can see how the pinion comes up and the clutch engages with setting mechanism.

P1120706

Gold dust, new sliding pinion and winding pinion.

P1120710

Setting/winding mechanism almost back together.

P1120713

Date mechanism back together and very snappy.

P1120714

Movement almost back together.

P1120716

Base movement back together and ticking. I actually had to take it apart and back together a few times to find the bugs ailing the movement.

P1120717

I’m happy with that!

P1120719

Dial and hands goes back onto the movement.

Revue-T56

Movement goes back into the case.

Great looking diver working like it should again!

    Hi Mitka, pobably you are referring to the balance not the mainspring in the nineth photo. As always, a great job!
    Best regards from Argentina.
