The chronograph mechanisms add a layer of complexity on what is basically a standard watch movement. All of the normal adjustments (hairspring, endshakes, pallet adjustments) are all identical. What I'm working on figuring out now are the oiling and servicing of the chronograph components.
I will be working on these watches for the remaining 7 or so months of my education at the watch technology institute. The goal is to achieve a total feel and comfort for working with these common mechanisms. I will try and post a detailed overview of a complete chronograph servicing in the near future.

|The pallet fork endshake had to be adjusted on my watch. This is the same operation as on any other manual or automatic watch.|
