  1. Brilliant thank you to all for your help. I do hope its still a "nice" movement once I have finished with it!!! Have found a replacement barrel for the 66a online so will give it a go. Thanks again.
  2. It looks to be almost exactly an inch (2.5cm) across. Is that what you wanted?
  3. Thanks Geo. rogart63 I see what you are thinking, looking at the Seiko 5740c there are some similarities there. Are we guessing this is a fake Benrus then? Regardless i'll still like to repair the thing. Interesting though.
  4. Hello All, I am new to this forum and relatively new to repairing watches (so please don't bite!). I have repaired a couple of cheap watches before and both have worked out fine so decided to try my hand on Benrus I have had for a couple of year and am quite fond of. All was going well and then I had a pet related incident whilst opening up the mainspring barrel. By the time I had found the barrel (cap, arbour and mainspring conveniently ended up in my lap) it had been damaged and some of the teeth destroyed. I have tried to identify the movement in order to figure out what part to try and find (picture attached, apologies for the poor quality) but really struggling as it doesn't look like any other Benrus movement I have seen anywhere online. The watch has 1974 on the back (looks like a "length of service" gift awarded to someone by the inscription). I bought it from ebay and the seller doesn't know anything more about it. If more picture of any more of the parts would be useful please let me know. I'm just hoping that someone will be able to help. Thank you in advance. G
