  1. get what you are saying about the regulator arm as for the rest that is how it was when i dismantled it.any help with the right positioning of the gears would be most helpful!B
  2. yes i worked it out just after i posted but i had trouble getting it to fit(it seemed a little to long) i then some how bent it and when i tried to pick it up it pinged away across the room so i will have to resort to obtaining a replacement.happy days!B
  3. dismantled a omega 1012 and found out the click spring was unattached and i am unsure how to put it back.any help would be appreciated.no problem with the other parts!B
  4. the dial has 4 feet and has a date window 1cm from centre to window centre and i dont know which movement it was intended for!B.the feet are between 2 and 3 ,5 and 6 ,8 and 9,10 and 11
  5. i have a 31mm sterile dial and would like to obtain a case and then of course a movement.how does one know which case /movement will fit?are there set measurements you need to know or written information available?any help would be appreciated.B.
  6. Yes looked it up. It's a 1908 movement
  7. not sure but is a traveler and i believe a 16s.the dial is 42-43mm.
  8. anybody know where i can obtain blue or black hands for a waltham pocket watch 1.90 x 1.18 at a reasonable price.tried Cousins but they dont seem to have this size and although there seems to be plenty on E-bay they are mostly from the USA with ridiculous postage charges.thanks B.
  9. Just ordered it. Will let you know how I get on. B
  10. the male inner stem seems right but i will need a new female stem as the original is now a little short to fit this movement!they sure dont make it easy do they? thanks for your help.fingers crossed! B.
  11. Further to this post I obtained a 955.412 which came with a normal stem. I tried the original stem but it didn't fit. Tried to look for split stem for this movement but have not had any luck. Any ideas? B.
  12. thanks for that.it should fit then.needs to split stem as i have to go into case through the front.
  13. also could i use the stem from the 555.415 in the 955.412 as it needs to be a split stem?
  14. i recently posted a query regarding a roamer with a 555.415 movement.i took it apart and i thing at least one of the train wheels looks a bit dodgy! this movement and the parts are now obsolete.will a 955.412 fit?the size seems the same,but the height is a little shorter ie. 2.50 as opposed to 2.75.many thanks B.
  15. will give both a try.was thinking of replacing with a 955.412 which seems to be the same size and is available from cousins from around £23 with postage if my friend wants to go that way!
  16. further to this post things did not go as well as i thought:i changed the battery and the second started off on its way then after a while it stopped and just jerked a little.it pulses a little but that is it.the movement is an eta 555-415 and i have found a service chart but i am loathe to take it apart as i am more comfortable with a mechanical movement.any ideas? can it be kick started?B
  17. just used my crystal lift on a friends roamer(question posted earlier!) and it was a doddle both off and on.mine is a Liberty made in india,a good price and quite solid.does the job well.also use a crystal press when needed.both handy to have.B
  18. thanks to all that answered my query.it was indeed a split stem which i managed to pull out with forefinger and thumb!used my crystal lift replaced the battery and bobs your uncle.gratefully yours,the Bolt.
  19. my friend gave me a roamer quartz to look at but i dont know how to get inside! the back appears to be one piece and there is no where to put a case knife.there is an indentation near the crown but no where to get a purchase.in fact it just looks more like a DENT!.Do i have to take the crystal off?( i have done this before) But how do i remove the stem?
  20. i thought that,but when i look on Cousins all the 762s are 2.50mm height but quote hour wheel heights from 0.80 1.15 1.55 2.55 and 3.15! confusing or what?
  21. sorry when i said there are various heights i ment the hour wheel! there are about 4 or 5 different sizes from 0 (standard) upwards.which is closest to the 3D44?B
