Technical question about 1846

 By: Lu Cash : January 11th, 2019-01:44

I have a question about power reserve hand in these two watches. As you can see power reserve hand on the white one goes out of scale. Blue one is fine. Initially I thought it was an issue only with my watch. Than I looked at the pictures on the net and I saw many 1846 with this issue. I wonder if it was released from factory with this defect ? I must admit that it kind of annoys me and I wonder whether UN really released pieces with such an inaccuracy. 

Any thoughts ?

This is the ETA 2892, it is in so many watches and so many years too. Where is the hand when it is full charged?

When the watch is fully wound the hand stops correctly at the end of the scale where "UP" sign is in both watches. Sorry but I do not see any connection that it is ETA and it has been installed in many watches for many years. [nt]

I see this connection, because other brands dont have this problem. So UN is the problem! [nt]

Sorry did not understand you correctly. I do not know whether PR module was from ETA or UN. Since 2892 is modified ETA with added modules it seems that it might be a faulty PR module. [nt]

Power reserve/small seconds modification is done by an own UN module, produced by UN. [nt]
