Timing & Watch Testing Machines

   

The New & Improved Otto Frei Multifunction Timegrapher Watch Timing Machine No. 1000

Test and displays Amplitude, along with displaying on the LCD screen the beat noise, rate in seconds per day is displayed as either fast or slow and the beat error in "ms" milli-seconds is also tested. Automatically discovers 9 different beat rates 12,000 14,400, 18,000, 19800, 21600, 25200, 28800, 36000 and 43,200 bph. Those 9 beat rates are automatically identified by this tester in just a few seconds or you can change and manually set the beat rate to be tested. This new improved 1000 Timer can test 56 different beat rates from super slow 3,600 BPH to ultra fast 43,200 BPH by manually selecting the rate. The lift angle is pre-set to default value of 52 degrees. If you know the correct lift angle of the watch you are testing you can manually set the correct lift angle to get the most accurate Amplitude measurement possible. Uses the standard microphone rotates to six different positions and opens to 50 mm wide. The power supply is single phase AC110V-250V, power consumption is about 8 watts.
Displays daily rate in seconds per day (+/-300 s/d), Accurate to (+/-1 s/d).
Amplitude: 100 - 350 degree, allowable tolerance (+/-3 degree).
Beat error: 0-4.0ms, allowable tolerance (+/-0.1ms).
Life angle: 30-60 degree, ex-works value: 52 degree.
While testing using the tester, you can hear the sound of the beat noise from a built in speaker, you can turn on and off the sound as you wish.

Now it is possible to own a timer that test for Amplitude for less than $250 dollars!

Amplitude reading is taken with the watch in the horizontal position (dial up or dial down) a good amplitude reading would be in the 275 to 315 range. While it is not necessary to know the correct lift angle of the balance to get an accurate timing reading to get an accurate Amplitude reading you do have to set the machine to the correct lift angle of the balance of the movement being tested for Amplitude.

TYMC Watch Tester MTG-4000A

The MTG-4000A is an improved version of the MTG-3000. The MTG-4000A has a color LCD Graphic Display and comes with the Improved Microphone that opens to 50 mm and rotates for testing in six different positions. The 6 position test is programmable to set the testing time in each position anywhere from 10 to 50 seconds. If a print out of the timing results are needed and optional TYMC Printer which is sold separately (see below on the page) is available. The TYMC Timers can test six different beat rates from (18000, 19800, 21600, 25200, 28800, 36000 BPH) of mechanical watches. Most watches made since 1920 beat at one of these BPH. Before Edward Howard created the first 18,000 BPH watch in the 1880s most watches beat at 14,400 BHP. Once Howard introduced the 18,000 BPH watch almost all watch companies started making 18,000 BPH watches. However for a period of time most companies produced some models in both 14,400 BPH and 18,000 BPH versions. If you have some early American Pocket Watches from the 1850s to 1920s it is very likely the beat rate is below 18,000 BPH and will not test on the TYMC timers.

There are two display usages: horizontal and vertical.
6 frequencies (18000, 19800, 21600, 25200, 28800, 36000) of mechanical watches made in everywhere can be tested.
The power supply is single phase allows from us with AC110V or 250V(+/-5%).
Display Daily rate of watch in seconds per day (+/-300 s/d), accurate to (+/-1 s/d).
Amplitude: 100 - 350 degree, allowable tolerance (+/-3 degree).
Beat error: 0-4.0ms, allowable tolerance (+/-0.1ms).
Life angle: 30-60 degree, ex-works value: 52 degree.
While testing using the TYMC tester, you can hear the sound of the beat noise from a built in speaker, you can turn the sound off by pushing the "sound" button.

All machines come factory calibrated at 18.0000 mhz. The frequency, may drift after a few years and by using a frequency meter you can recalibrate the timer to 18.0000 mhz. Frequency meter not supplied with machine.

TYMC Watch Tester MTG-5000H

High definition color display.

Frequency meter not supplied with machine.

The timegrapher MTG-5000H is used to test the performances of mechanical watches. It is a high-grade model of the MTG-H series which has higher test accuracy and more powerful functions.

There are the displays of diagrams of beat noise, the numerical values of rate, amplitudes and beats errors, adding the maximum differences of rates and amplitudes among various positions when executing programmed testing. It serves the function of long-term monitoring of rate and amplitude. 960 dots extraordinary long diagram of beat noise can be displayed on the LCD. Test with +/- 0.2 seconds per day high degree of accuracy can be carried out. There is perfect print function, the diagram and values mentioned above all can be printed by heat sensitive printer (sold separately). It serves the functions of multi-rate display, time and calendar display, acoustic stimulation of beat noise. This tester is designed as an all-in-one structure. The machine, the power adapter, and the microphone are all combined onto one chassis. The new flip-screen protects the display from scratches and dusts when not in use.

TYMC Printer For Watch Timers

This printer is for those who are required to keep or give out a printed record of the timing the watch they just serviced and timed. Most watch repair person are not required to show timing paper results while others are or like to be able to pass on the test results before and after servicing the watch.

Works with the MTG-3000 (b/w display model now discontinued), the color MTG-4000 and MTG-5000 watch timers.
