I bought a jolly super Timegrapher from China as a birthday present for myself. It arrived this afternoon so I've been having a good play with it. One of the things that needs entering to properly check a watch is the lift angle. I've already found a comprehensive list of lift angles for Swiss movements plus I've also found out the the lift angle on Vostok 24** movements is 42 degrees. Does anybody here have a decent of list/link to other Russian movements lift angles so I can continue to play throughout the weekend?

Finally, it's amazing how much better my old CCCP Vostoks run compared to the newer stuff!

Random Timegrapher picture stolen from internet for anyone who hasn't seen one:

Have a good weekend!

Brand - Calibre / Lift angle
Chaika - 13xx / 46°
Luch --- 18xx / 46°
Luch --- 22xx / 49°
Poljot - 2612 / 49°
Poljot - 2609 / 51°
Poljot - 2614 / 51°
Poljot - 3017 / 48°
Poljot - 3133 / 51°
Raketa - 26xx / 42°
Slava -- 16xx / 49°
Slava -- 24xx / 49°
Slava -- 5498 / 47°
Vostok - 24xx / 42°
Zarja -- 15xx / 43.33°
Zarja -- 16xx / 44.3°
Zarja -- 20xx / 44.3°

Vostok 24xx = 42°
Raketa 26xx = 42°
Poljot 26xx = 49° to 51° (you can measure all of them at 50°, the error is so small as to be negligible)
Poljot 3133 = 51°
Slava 24xx = 49°

Looks like fun Lampoc , been tempted to get one myself and save all the adjust wait thing. Is it easy to use?
It's the easiest thing ever to use. Just pop the watch on the microphone, set the lift angle and adjust away. Of all the watchmaking gadgets I've bought, my timegrapher gets by far and away the most use. Buy one now!

Ressurrecting an old thread to say-- THANKS!
Just got my timegrapher and testing out a few daily wear vintage Komandirskies this summer.

Thanks for compiling the lift angles. Now to see how they are running. (Most probably need a good service this winter when I get indoor time)

What is the lift angle for a 2809?
