  5. Bandelin Timer

    Hi, i have been given a 'Bandelin Tickoquartz TQ3' watch timer. Partially working in that the screen shows green numbers, but its not accurate i have been told. internet search throws up very little other than 1970s. Is there anyone out there with some knowledge, experience, old literature, instructions perhaps? Or does anyone know someone willing to take a look at it? Many thanks

  8. ST6 wheel

    Hi, please can you help with some advice about replacing the wheel, i pulled off in my haste? i am still learning on my very first few movements, the ST6 movement was delivered from Cousins, and i attempted to pull off the 'mini hand', but succeeded in extracting the wheel, Noobie error i now know. i assume i now have to start to strip the calender movement to get to a point to where the wheel can be replaced, then rebuild? i read that there is also some form of friction to do with the wheel? Man thanks
  9. hi, many thanks for the prompt response, yes i do and will take a look and order, thankyou
  10. Hi all, Embarrassing beginners’ problem.! Whilst replacing the battery and using a press to fasten the back plate onto a watch, I have broken the crystal…(was rushing, will use concave piece properly next time!) The watch is an Emporio Armani AR2041. My problem is I cannot find the correct part number/specification for the crystal on the internet anywhere, (and thus the dimensions and thickness etc,), or do I take the pieces and measure them, to reorder from Cousins? I assume it will be a mineral domed that is required? Any help would be appreciated, many thanks

  13. hello from up North

    well chaps , you were all right. The watch bug got hold.... been reading the forums, got books for xmas, including the cooksey book, purchased 2 broken pocket watches and fixed them, acquiring tools now, this site is superb for learning/training - thank you Mark recently met a local 50yr + experienced watch repairman which is invaluable. Frightened now the watch collection starts....

Hi ricardopamino, thx for the help, does photo help? guys photo,below, its the wheel at the bottom, part of keyless works? i dont believe it perches on top of the 'spindle', (for want of a better word), i believe it should slide down the spindle?? maybe i am wrong. thanks again.
