Hi Guys, good day, i am David Cybulkiewicz from Colombia, S.A. I sateted to collect and damage watches a while ago, and a coule of months ago started after a lapse to pick up my watches fix them clean them and putting them in order. thnaks for the talk page regards
This morning I could pick my latest goody for my collection. A Certina Club 2000 from around 1968 in absolutely amazing unworn conditions. I don't dare to wear it!
I haven't checked yet but it is supposed to have a Certina 25-661 manual winding movement and of course it is a "Pre Hayek" Certina.
Could anyone help me with this pocket watch, there is no identification on the movement whatsoever, after removing all of the screws from the train bridge i still cant remove the bridge. It looks like the centre wheel or the canon pinion is stopping it. Ive attached some pics, can anyone see what it is i may need to do to remove it? ive tried prizing off the pinion but it doesn't budge at all.
I'm working on a cal 30.10 at the moment which also has the original mainspring with separate slipping bridle. However, the conventional mainspring which sits inside looks fairly "set".
The replacement at Cousins is a conventional automatic mainspring, ie. one piece including bridle. I'm not sure if I'd be best leaving the original, or going for the replacement option which is not as per original, bit at least not set, and probably unbreakable.
SQAULE OCEAN DIVER WATCH
Hi everyone. I am in the process of looking for spares for a SQUALE watch. I was at work and a colleague heard I did watches as a hobby and pulled this watch out of his drawer and brought it in. I have never heard of the brand but after some research I have found out more about te brand. Very cool indeed.
I need to repair/ polish or replace the glass and relume the hands and service and replace the battery and strap on the watch. I have not yet opened the retainer that holds the glass in but after removing the bezel I was wondering if this is a domed glass with a tapered edge held in place with a tapered retention screw ring or is it indeed a specialised bit of glass that has a flat lip on the bottom that this retention ring sits on to seal it against a rubber seal. I assume it would be the latter given that the watch is rated to a 100 atmospheres.
Has anyone worked on these watches or replaced one of these watch glasses before? Any pictures? If it is a specialised form I can see me spending many an hour polishing out the scratches.
Many thanks in advance.
