  1. You were right! I stuck a single edge razor into it at the 9 o’clock position and it popped right off. It uses one of those rd nylon rings for the seal. Thanks. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Does the back unscrew by placing a typical 3 pin wrench into the rounded slots on the back? For the life of me I can’t get the back to turn at all. I know they allow water into the inside in order for the barometric pressure sensor to work, and I figure that it can cause corrosion between the back and the case threads. Any suggestions?

  3. You can find a lot of history with a search on lecoultre. Jaeger joined later. I saw a good basic article on them that was mainly regarding the Reverso models and how they came to be. It was published a couple of days ago. https://www.govbergwatches.com/blog/history-jaeger-le-coultre-reverso/ Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  4. You can buy movements on eBay, but if I were you, I would scour the area with a magnet. It is gold plated steel, usually. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I figured it out. This is a new one on me. It is supposed to run backwards! I found a manual online and the retrograde model is supposed to have the chrono hand set at the 45 mark, and it runs CCW to the 15 mark then quickly reverses back to the 45 mark. There are even 0 to 30 marks in an inner dial ring, running from 45 to 15. Very odd to have a retrograde second hand. It still has an issue though, in that the hand sometimes falters and jerks back and forth then resumes its counting,but is then off time and has to have a hand reset done again.

  7. I just got a nice sport model Tissot with retrograde subdials and the ETA G15-26 6J movement. I put a new 394 battery in it, set all of the hands. When I click the chrono button, the chrono hand either jerks back and forth or runs backwards. I can reset it to 12 with no problems. Are there any repair suggestions other than buy a movement for it? Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Try this - I have about the same eyesight and this has two lenses and a white led light for each. The light makes all the difference. Quality is excellent, too. Steve This is on Amazon. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Search ebay with the complete model number from the back cover 7s26-xxxx. Or just search google and see what shows up. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Look for a slight space by the stem, otherwise it may not have one. The easiest way to pop it off is to slide a single edge razor blade anywhere along the seam and try to lift it up. A sharp knife blade will work, but I hate to chip knife blades up. I keep a box of blades handy. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Yes, it would be a snap off back. Dig under the bottom of it where it meets the case. It may very well be a little corroded and stuck to the case. Carefully try slinging a single edge razor blade under it and lever it upward. It may break the blade, but I always have a box of them on hand for when the gap is too small for a screwdriver blade or knife blade. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  12. They are moisture related speckles. Some people say they remove them with a damp q-tip. It shouldn’t be too hard to fix up. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Yeah. I should have worded the joke better. Jokes on me now. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Oh, yeah, but where was it made?? Can you guess that one? Ha. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  15. It just pops off. Use a single edge razor blade or thin knife or other tool and just work it off. There is a perfect example of one with the back off on eBay. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
