    Need help - Misaligned ZZF No Date

    Hi,

    Location, Europe.

    I'm in need of a competent repair job for aligne the dial of my watch. See picture.

    Either aligne the dial or rehault, but I read that aligning the rehault it quite impossible.

    Dial/movement is probably slightly rotated. Just open case back, loosen the movement holding clamp screws (don't even need to remove) and turn the whole movement a fraction until aligned. 5 minute job. Limiting factor is obviously how much wiggle room there is with the stem.

        Try contacting interaktiv - think he is EU based and gets good reviews here.

          It does look like the dial could do with rotating just a couple of degrees clockwise. It really is a very simple DIY job. But yeah, one of the forum watchsmiths will be able to sort it for you in no time.

              What can I do from here? Remove the two small screws on each side and it should be able to rotate the whole movement / dial?

                Yes, the two outer screws. Just loosen them a turn. Then see if the movement will rotate half a mm (you won't be able to move it much due to the stem, but there hopefully enough leeway to align the dial). Then just tighten up. Don't force anything as obviously the stem will break or end up bent!
