    Just rebuilt my first Slava 2427. Awful problems getting hold of a decent balance movement. I purchased 2 through a well known horology site but they were rubbish. 3rd one worked perfectly. Interesting double power unit.

    hint

    Attention! Never, never ever unlock the stem unless you have pulled the crown to setting position. And never insert the stem without pushing the release button, even not if the collar towards the square is conical to lift the set lever. Else you have a high chance to mix up the parts of the setting works, and rearranging them is much more troublesome than in most other movements.

    Know all about that. Started my watch repair initiation with 6 of these movements and I think I have learnt just about every lesson
