    Diplomat 1000 not chiming, Hermle 451

    i took the movement out, and luckily nothing is broken or anything, it is not working because of friction. I have taken apart 2 train movements - this looks like more of a challenge, but i will give it a shot taking it apart and cleaning all the pivots.
