  1. its more the skill to be fair, ive seen people in the watch world make pieces with make shift tools. that was the mistake a few years ago i made, spent a load of money on tools, but was lacking the skill. However... stunning piece of kit you have there,
  2. Hi guys, looking for a source for a crown and two pushers for a tag Carrera cv2011 Many thanks UK based if that makes a difference , cousins have some generics which is fine but was hoping they would have a like for like job number , so not sure which ones to get as I don't have the watch to hand Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  3. The problem with cutting is that you need to cut enough to clean the dial bit not enough that it won't reach the pivot. I would be inclined to get a replacement as you never know the next dial you want may have the hole. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

    5700 Type Back Opener

    They come together on the base and the case fits in between then, usually in between the lugs giving a firm hold on the case so the top part can unscrew the back They would sit where the white circular pins are in that picture Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

  6. Quick and dirty way will be two points of tweezers and twist. Or pegwood Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
  7. As for the balance spring , I would suggest one dip or an alternative degreaser, you shouldn't need much more than that. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk

  15. If the centre pin does not go through the collet holder then it may be as simple as that is not the correct collet holder? Should go straight through the collect holder and then through the middle of the faceplate Sent from my ONEPLUS A6003 using Tapatalk
