Learning to regulate my NH35A mods/Builds!

As the title says and as some of you know I started dipping my fingers into the modding world.

First watch was running like shit. So I tried to adjust it blindly and guess what... I ruined the balance wheel.. shocker!

 So I bought a timegrapher and started adjusting and regulating the other mods/builds very slowly and more patiently. Bear in mind all my builds so far using NH35A. So nothing spectacular nor special. 

And here you go,  I'm proud to present the end result of my second build.

Again, I'm still an embryo in the life of a modding enthusiast but wanted to share my first steps with my fellow nerds.

The good part is that you learned a valuable lesson on something that is common and replaceable. On the scale of a watch our fingers are big, squishy rubbery things with almost no feel.

Good job on the timegrapher. Some watches will test your patience more than others but the reward at the end makes it worthwhile.

Hah! That happened to me as well. I wanted to regulate the movement of a SARB035 and slipped right into the balance wheel. Since then I’m muuuuuuuch more careful and patient when adjusting my watches. Sometimes one needs to learn it the hard way I guess

I've just posted a comment on whether buying a timegrapher or not. Like you, I'm entering in the modding world. Do you have any recommendations for adjusting the balance wheel. In YouTube seems easy.

I apologize for the late reply.

My two recommendations would be using a magnification, whatever it is, at least x5. And using a wooden or plastic peg when moving the regulator (adjust the rate) and the stud holder (for beat error) in a very very very slow motion each time then checking the numbers then going again if needs to.
