  1. Sorry watchweasol, I forgot to thank you for your help with my problem. You solved my question for me and gave me some very useful documents for the future. Very much appreciated. Mike.
  2. Hi, I have a problem with an automatic Seamaster DEVILE which I purchased years ago but could never look at the movement because it has to come out through the front. It's a mid 60's model and marked on the rear waterproof. At the time of purchase the seller said that the crown came loose and he had it repaired. Not replaced On a timgerapher it is showing - 128 s/day, 232Deg, 3.2 ms,52.0deg and 19800. When trying to turn the crown it is solid and impossible to wind up. It runs and keeps time, turning the crown in the first position out moves the fingers and it changes date at midnight. I also have what I think is an identical watch which is Cal. No.565 which does wind up with the crown and has a second position which moves the date forward Before I start to attempt a repair can I ask a few questions. What is the method for removing the movement from the case. Did Omega ever make watches that did not wind Could there be a problem with the stem Does anyone have a parts list in case I need to buy parts Is it possible to get a service sheet for this model Sorry for the ramble but any help would be appreciated.
  3. A good looking Omega and it looks spot on to me. I don't see anything to cause doubts.
  4. Thanks Watchweasol. You’ve answered my question.
  5. Can anyone help me with this watch which I recently acquired? It's an Omega Seamaster Quartz Cal 1342. I'm trying to find out what the yellow metal is. The links and the rope pattern Bezel. Are they Brass or did Omega always use gold? Thanks for any help you can give me.
  6. looking for information on the Horotec snap on case back tool. I have bought a chinese version which looks identical and am very pleased with it. The engineering of it and the finish is superb. However I am unsure about the long term quality of the pegs which actually prise the back off and am thinking of changing these for the genuine Horotec ones. Does anyone have a genuine Horotec tool, if so could you measure the diameter of the shank which goes into the tool so that I could check the fit in mine which is 6.95mm Many thanks for any help, Mike
  7. It looks a good site with the same variation of genuine and fake as Ebay. Their English is a bit dodgy but I'm sure with care that there are bargains to be found
  8. You could buy drill bits from Cousins, they go from 0.5m to 2.00 mm. These are jewellery drills but there are all types available, you would need to gently feed the drill through until you get to the shank witch will be the size of the hole. Never having looked for jewels I'm not sure what the hole size would be.
  9. Can anyone help me to to identify an Omega Watch Bracelet please. It is a genuine item with all the correct markings and I would like to find out the model of watch it is intended to fit. Stainless steel, flat links at the sides and beads of rice running down the middle The ends are flat and made to suit lugs with a 20mm gap. The No. on the clasp is 1173 + an oval with No.12 in The ends which fit within the lugs are marked 718 It is new and unused, never fitted to a watch and I want to sell it ( not here ) I'm sure it could be worth a lot of money if I could identify the model it is supposed to fit. Any ideas would be very helpful, thanks a lot and a Merry Christmas to everyone
  10. Hi, I'm asking this question more out of interest and learning rather than to solve a problem. I have a good collection of Omega wrist watches but I started out with pocket watches. A lot of pocket watches are marked ADJUSTED, the more expensive ones are often marked with ADJUSTED 4 , 5 positions and some TEMPERATURE. The only adjustment I know of is at the balance wheel. If I get that spot on how else can it be adjusted without disturbing the initial setting? Can someone more knowledgeable than me explain it please.
  11. Hi, watchweasol, thanks a lot for helping. Much appreciated.
  12. Thanks jdm. I suppose that I should have asked that question first. It just seemed that there needed to be one. Anyway now I know.
  13. Can anyone help me to locate parts lists for Seiko 6119 - 8190 and Seiko 7019 -7080 I remember seeing them here at some time but can't find them again. What I am searching for is large case back washers, if they are required.
  14. I have very fine solid carbide drills which I'm sure would drill it out. If you got the clasp separated from the buckle and sent it to me I would try to do it for you but obviously no guarantees.
