    SH3132 movement reliability

    Hi everyone,
    While waiting for a DateJust 41 126334 ARF with a silver dial, fluted bezel and jubilee bracelet using a 2824....here's hoping...I thought I would perhaps look at another rep I would love to collect:

    The OP 39mm 114300 ARF using the SH3132

    As I have read the SH movements, especially the 3235's are not very reliable, I was wondering how the SH3132 is holding up? Has anyone had them blow up? Any insight would be would be helpful and appreciated.

    All the Asian superclone 3xxx series can be regarded more or less equally in terms of reliabity. SH is a lttle better than SA, but the potential to experience power reserve issues is greater than in an ETA. The two reversing wheels in the autowind device are the culprit, and normally require gen parts replacement since rep parts are not available. Also, datewheels can be a challenge to replace with gen due to manufacturing and design tolerances.
    We are all related in time since time is relative to us all.

      Thank you for the info. That's a great explanation on the reversing wheels that I had no idea about. I think the one good thing about these clone movements is that its easier to swap out for gen parts. Correct? Downside being as you said, you almost have to at some point

        Can you clean and lube those reversing gears? Or no matter what they just break?

          yes you can....but the quality of the wheels is just bad so replacing with gen is the best solution...

            You could, but problem is due poor material quality on those reversing wheels that the teeth (gear) slowly worn off and eventually fully worn off hence power reserve problem. And the metal flakes from it get rub everywhere in the movement... causing more problem to whole movement.
