  2. just been on cousins website.said items are restricted so would have to go generic,also looking at the document section there are many 166.0020 s all followed with a couple of letters which my watch does not have.what do they stand for?

  4. hi, i have a accurist chrono MB851 cal JS15 that needs a new glass crystal and wondered if i take the old out through the back and/or do i need to take the bezel off? i have replaced a few crystals but i want to make sure i get it right on this one.thanks for any info.B.
  5. got a couple of slavas myself one is the 2414 date, the other looks similar but day/date.cannot see the number yet.the hairspring is going at a rate of knots! i also need a balance for the date movement? need a case or two but struggling to find unless a buy a complete watch which i dont really want to do,plus on the day/date mvt it needs a button to change the day.if i cant find one i may just give them a clean and lube and resell them.B

  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. Yes looked it up. It's a 1908 movement
  14. not sure but is a traveler and i believe a 16s.the dial is 42-43mm.
  15. 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.
  16. Just ordered it. Will let you know how I get on. B
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
