    6498 enamel Roman dial

    I bought this Parnis from a China dealer and will swap out the cheap movement from one of my Arnexes. I fell in love with the dial and the whole thing was as cheap as buying the separate parts to make one. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    6498 enamel Roman dial

    I love the 6498 movement and have bought several Arnex pocket watches to get the movement two make a watch with. What case setup did you buy? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  5. No, not genuine at all. Very rough and the name on the rotor was round off. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Is it possibly the 10.391 that is used in breitling aerospace models? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    How to replace a crown

    Hmmm. I thought about what it could be. It’s possible that the sleeve is the remains of the broken off crown and it is simply still threaded onto the stem. If so, you could unscrew it and find another crown with a sleeve to fit the stem and case combination. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Help How do i Remove Battery

    There is a springy lever on the right side between the battery and coil. It has a tiny protrusion that goes over the battery on that side to hold the battery in place. Carefully push the lever aside a little and the battery will pop right out. The left side of the battery is held under a shelf of metal. When you put the new one in, place the battery under the shelf and then move that lever aside to let the battery fall into place. Be very careful not to hit that red coil with anything. Many a watch have bit the dust when the coil is hit with a screwdriver that is being used to push that lever aside. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    How do you remove stem from myota fs 10

    Look down into the hole that the arrow is pointing to, while pulling the crown in and out. You should see a little lever come and go, with a tiny hole in the center. That hole is where you would press to release the stem. Steve Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Removing Caseback

    All I have is one of the typical adjustable three point back wrenches, but it works pretty well on those if they aren’t jammed too badly. Just adjust it so the points are across three of the flats. Works best if you have flat points in the tool not the round ones. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Timex camel promotion watch

    Just drop it anywhere near the center. It isn’t critical. It will find its way all over the gears below. Your battery is probably ok. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Timex camel promotion watch

    I use ronsonol because it’s the brand available here. Just place a tiny drop right about dead center on the movement and it will quickly infiltrate the movement. Hold the battery in with your finger and it should be running. After that you will have to dry it out with canned air or a hair dryer. Don’t put the back on it until you are sure it is dry.

    Timex camel promotion watch

    The D8 on the back is their date code for the 8th month of 1996. It was a Camel cigarette promotion where you collected coupons from camel cigarette packs to redeem for various watches, mostly Victorinoxes. As for the problem, it is more than likely one of two things. The second hand scraping the inside of the crystal, or contamination in the little plastic gears. I’ve fixed many a cheap quartz watch with a tiny tiny drop of old fashioned lighter fluid dropped onto the center of the movement. It has brought many a ‘dead’ one back to life. You then have to blow it completely dry with canned air or it will end up condensing on the inside of the crystal. Don’t use most cleaning fluids because they melt plastic and the date wheel if it has one will melt. Otherwise, if it appears to be the hand scraping the crystal, that’s a bigger problem with this watch. I’ve never successfully pulled the stem out of one of those in order to get the movement out. Hope this helps some. Steve Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
