Bulova Cadet problem

#1 Post by semroc » Thu Jun 29, 2017 6:29 pm

I have this nice looking Cadet. It runs great, except for when the second hand is in, it stops right away. I'd kinda like to have it in there. Any suggestions on how to fix it? Without taking it to a watchmaker. Thanks, Eli.

Sometimes the dial feet can be off and the hole for the second hand is not centered over the post for the second hand making the side of the hand tube touch the dial causing it to stop. I would check that first.
