  1. Here is the stem you need. https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/274379429848?chn=ps
  2. As its new don’t tamper with it as it will affect the guarantee. You should send it back.
  3. There also could be a tiny foreign body interfering on the hairspring.

  7. Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum. You don't need a mainspring winder, you can manage quite well without such things, new springs come in this form and all you do is make sure you have the spring the right way and press it into the barrel.

  9. Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum. Dumont tweezers are a must, makes handling tiny parts much more easy.

  12. He might be on holiday, or he might not be feeling to good. Don't worry he will contact you. If you don't hear from him soon let me know and I'll see what I can do for you.
  13. Its a pity the person didn't take it back and told them to put it into the same condition as when they took it to that incompetent person, they should have sued them. Because of the damage they have inflicted on that watch they have removed any value to it. The movement is called a 5 bar movement and are normally Swiss made. Good luck with what you are willing to do in helping your friend, not an easy task. I look forward to the video if you record one.
  14. As you got the movement from esslinger have you asked them about dials to fit. Steve as this is your first post. We like new members to introduce themselves first by telling us a little bit about themselves.
  15. Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum.
  16. Windles clock oil. It is one of the best oils for clocks around, its about the only clock oil you will need. It will be fine on the whole movement including the springs, the balance, the pivots of all the wheels (which are know as the train) and pallet pins. You will need an oiler the yellow one is best as its the thickest.
  17. Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum.
  18. Here is Marks video on replacing the battery and setting the time in a Seiko perpetual.
  19. If the watch is in for just cleaning. I always let the spring down first, then remove the complete balance, put it to one side and cover it. Doing that you won't cause any accidental damage. You know you can remove all parts without things going wrong. If the movement has something wrong with the balance it is best to let the power right down and the give it a few turns so you can see what is happening with the escapement. That is what I was taught and it is just my preferred way I used to work.
  20. Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum. Two very nice visible escapement clocks. The first is French and I expect its an 8 day duration with rack striking on a bell. Is the other French? it looks like it, both very nice.
  21. Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum.
  22. The hairspring should be free from both sides of the pins/boot. What ever position the regulator is in the H/S should be free. This applies to most but there are the exceptions.
