  3. Recommendation / Thoughts for Flieger Klassik 6498 small second vs 6497 Anniversary Edition

    Jörg Schauer & STOWA
    Hello, I'm planning to buy my first Stowa, and decided to go for one of the 90th anniversary editions. Based on their English news page, they'll be making both 6497 and 6498. I think I'm leaning towards the 6497 but I can't seem to find any real or concept photos. Not sure if they've ever made...

    WTB - Wanted to Buy
    Hi, everyone-- I'm looking for a Parnis pilot with the 6498 movement, 44mm, black face (I'm not too fussy about the strap). I'd prefer not to wait weeks for it to show up from one of the HK or China sellers and I'm hoping someone on here has one that can use a new home :-) and is in good...

  11. Some 6497/8s "poor-man" hack and others don't

    Public Forum
    6497s and 6498s don't officially hack (the fourth wheel, and by association the subseconds hand doesn't stop turning when the crown is pulled to the setting position, which makes syncing the seconds hand almost impossible). It has been reported that one can fake a hacking behavior by putting...
  12. My very first watch build

    Watchmaking
    This watch started with the gorgeous antique dial, which I got off Ebay. It is a little unconventional (about .5mm wider in diameter than most 6497/6498 dials and the subseconds hole is 10mm from the center hole where as the 6497/6498 prefers 10.25). I could have dealt with the first problem...

  14. Newbie: new movement in hand, confused about stem

    Watchmaking
    Okay, so I've got a few movements and cases (and other stuff, hands, etc.). I'm a little unsure how the whole stem business works. I understand "how" to remove the stem that came with the movement via the stem screw. What I'm unsure about is whether I am intended to use the stem that came...
  15. First 6498 build: hour wheel compression spring orientation?

    Watchmaking
    I finally got all the pieces for my first 6498 build. It comes with a few separate pieces: two mounting brackets, two mounting screws, the hour wheel, and the hour wheel compression spring. Simple question: does it matter which way I orient the spring? Which of the convex or concave side...
  16. Asian 6498 with adjustable mass balance

    Chinese Mechanical watches
    In my perusal of affordable (aka super cheap) 6497 and 6498 movements I have found quite a few 6498s (all the exact same movement I believe) with adjustable mass balances. The don't appear to be thermally adjusted (the balance isn't split into two halves), but they clearly have a set of...

  18. Exact 6497/6498 pinion distance?

    Watchmaking
    I just bought a very nice dial (hasn't even arrived yet) and I'd like to determine whether a 6498 will fit it. I can measure the pinion distance when it arrives, but I don't have a 6498 lying around to measure. I have a watch with a 6497 in it that I can sort of measure through the crystal...
  19. Dial mounting pin positions

    Watchmaking
    Some movements are quite common yet extremely diverse (e.g. Unitas/ETA 6497/6498). You can buy numerous dials as parts of DIY projects. What I'm unsure about is the placement of the dial mounting pins. Are all movements of a given model (say, 6497) guaranteed to have mounting holes in the...
