Astrographic / discs getting stuck
« on: March 13, 2020, 12:34:30 AM »
Hi,

I own 2 Astrographic SST watches, got both serviced but now I noticed that one
has the second ( red dot ) disc somehow stuck, it moves and then gets somehow jammed.

I would send it back to them to address the issue.  The discs can be a problem.  They are prone to warping, and can get very roughed up at the hub over the years being taken on and off improperly so proper spacing is a definite necessity.  They will likely have to remove and re-install properly to make sure there is enough clearance to prevent them touching one another.

Thanks, I am sending it to Ultra Vintage in the next couple of days.
BTW what size is the band width, some say 23mm and I have measured it and seems to be 24mm.
The original band measures 24mm.
