    Incabloc spring replacement

    I agree that a clear bag is a very good idea. When I had to do this task the first time this video helped: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HiAh4TkN25s
  2. Very nice, looking forward to the assembling pics. Is that luminous material on the dial and hands? I must admit that I'm quite afraid of radium in watches of that era.

    valjoux 7730

    I don't really understand. As far as I know the Friction spring should put pressure to the disc with the tooth on the downside of the chronograph runner wheel and the long pivot should run through the "fork" of the spring. Could you take a Photo of the situation?

    valjoux 7730

    Sounds like a problem with the chronograph runner friction spring, part n. 8290. Check if it has some good tension to the runner, if it is bent or otherwise damaged.

    Rolex hands

    Another source for old rolex parts is Michael from tswisst: www.tswisst.de Ask for what you need, he has tons of parts which are not registered on the website yet.

    Rolex GMT cal 3075 service problems

    I'm not sure if the bridge of the basic calibre 3035 is interchangable (maybe the only difference is the writing on it?). https://www.ebay.de/itm/Rolex-3035-5061-Automatic-Device-Bridge-Upper-Spare-Parts/263767064237?hash=item3d69bdfead:g:RzAAAOSwgoxbKOLn Another possibility is to contact Kevin in New Zealand. He could help me with many 15xx parts in the past, maybe he has the bridge. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/vintagerolexforum/viewtopic.php?f=207673&t=235524&p=535888&hilit="movement+parts"#p535888 Here are many lists of spare parts for Rolex calibres: https://www.r-l-x.de/forum/showthread.php/88631-Werk-Ersatzteillisten In the 3035 list there are the parts 95063 and 95063-1. I think one of them is the one you need if you want to replace the jewel and they're available on ebay. Erik
  9. Hello, I didn't work on such a movement yet, but at Ranfft it looks like the Valjoux 9 is a member of the Valjoux 5 family and may have the same stem W1730. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?00&ranfft&&2uswk&Valjoux_5_KVM There is a seller in germany who has it on his list: https://www.ebay.de/itm/eine-AUFZUGWELLE-fuer-AU-und-Taschenuhr-AUSWAHL-aus-1000-W-Nummern-AUFZUGWELLEN-/262677133494 Hope this helps a bit.

    Rolex 3085 rotor spring clip required

    I think there are 4 versions of this part varying in thickness: Rolex-Part-No. (thickness) 5066 (0.135) 5066-1 (0.150) 5066-2 (0.165) 5066-3 (0.180) There are several parts available on ebay (expensive, of course, Rolex is special ;-) ). Erik

    Watch of Today

    I'm on my way to become addicted to old chronos. Recently got my first calendar, a Wakman Jumbo. Looking forward to disassemble and service it.

    rolex caliber 1560 and 1570

    Yes, base caliber for both movements is 1530 and the parts which hold the hands didn't change over time.

    2 Questions regarding regulating

    I also come very often to this problem concerning watches with a regulator arm. I built this little tool. The tool head grips over the regulator arm while the watch is on the timegrapher and due to the tools long lever arm (which is about 4 inches) I can manipulate the regulator position very precise. Here are some pics of my work on a watch which ran constantly +4 seconds per day and I could slow it down to +1 second.

    Can Venus 175 & 178 parts be interchanged

    Hello, I'm not sure, but in the part lists of both calibres it seems to be the same (No. 8000). http://oldswisswatches.com/Spares/Venus_Mechanical_Movements.htm
