    VS3235 parts?

    What gen parts can the VS3235 take? Out of those parts, which would be the most beneficial to replace with gen?

    If the movement craps out at some point, they’re all transferable and retain value.

    Consider an autowind module instead of escape wheel and pallet fork...it will improve the PR of the movement.

    That's a really cool post! I think I'm in. When I'm done, I probably rebuilt the entire movement and sunk 3000 buks xD

    The escape wheel and pallet fork would not improve accuracy, that's the job of the balance wheel. The other parts were redesigned to improve efficiency, specifically to use less energy in operation thereby increasing power reserve. The VSF 3235 PR should be plenty long enough to make those parts upgrades unnecessary, unless you just want to go all out.

    Well that’s saved me a few £££.
    Thanks for the info!

    I am told that you must install both gen pallet fork and gen escape wheel. One member attempted just the gen pallet fork and reported that it wouldn't run, and had to install gen escape wheel.
    It was actually the other way around. The top pinion on my rep escape wheel broke so rather than buy a whole new movement I bought a gen escape wheel. I suspected it might not play well with the rep pallet fork but tried it anyway. It did not run and I ended up having to install the gen pallet fork also.

    i do have a gen pallet fork and escape wheel but haven’t installed them yet.

    Did you use a gen pallet fork too?

    I’m looking at a 3235-120 bridge, 3235-432 balance and a 3235-421 pallet fork.
    Does that sound right?

    While they technically can be separated, retrofitting one of them to a clone movement mandates that you fit the other one as well. So you might as well see them as a unit.
