I had a chrono with a wrong sweeping hand... so I decided to replace it with a right one I had previously restored (and heavily painted).

As I never received my crystal remover, I decided to take the mechanism off the case in order to change the hands.

Now, the watch works well, but when I start the chrono... it stops the watch! and the red hand do not move. The pushers are hard too...

Do you have any idea of what happened???

Thank you!


Thank you! I will wait the movement stops to remove it...

Let down the power from the mainspring:

"Wind slightly the watch with the winding stem in order to lift the click. Then with tweezers or another tip pull the click backwards in order to free it from the ratchet teeth (hold the winding stem during all the operation). Let the stem slide between your fingers until the watch is totally let down." (useful copy/paste from
