  1. you must first look inside at the movement. Find the cal or serial number. look for case numbers etc and than do some research.
  2. not a light bulb...… it is a chemical reaction of electroluminescent by passing a charge through phosphor atoms.
  3. welcome to the forum....or in as we say from Hudson county "how u doin"
  4. your best option is to serach for parts on EBAY. But, know that chances are slim and it could take a long time. I once searached for a quartz circuit board to repari a Longines and that took alomst two years. Now I am faced with helping my watchmaker friend to find parts for two Jean LaSalle watches the orginals and not the Seiko version. My chances of winning the lottery are better! but, I'll try. right to win the lottery
  5. and here is the movement running - note the clear back case is factory made and only one other known to exist. IMG_0929.MOV
  6. You will find the early electrics are fun to work on - here is my line up pf each of the original models with the Laco designed moment.
  7. those with gold numbers on white dial and chromed case would be from 57 and back.
  8. the white dial self wind is from 1958 and the model is named 'Viscount' they aslo came with a black dial and most f the old Timex forum members consider those a grail watch. Yes, and no need to askas I do have two of them. BTW, the movement is a model 29.
  9. that is an electronic and pretty certain the movement cover is a little different. but I have then in parts.
  10. 1969 Timex Electronic Backset - 10K gold filled case - Model 87 movement.
  11. and here are two of the electrics I have. the other watch you have is a 1957 Marlin -
  12. here you go - http://www.woodlandtechnical.co.uk/
  13. most times it looks even more messy than this -
  14. Timex parts? Who the heck would be crazy enough to buy Timex parts? Oh yeah, ME!
  15. both are Marlins. they need new stem crowns and the crystals buffed. do thye run?
  16. that is a pre 1963 Mercury. I'd say maybe 61 or 62. Was there an ink stamp on the underside of the case back?
  17. I have 50 year old Timex watch that have better water resistance!
  18. sounds like you have a super thin model. Comes with a model 23 movement. Not over wound,, rather just wound up and won't run. A simple dunk and swish service typically gets these models going. That is is you want to DIY.
  19. yep, the parts all look alike but of course are not. None have numbers on them and that just makes it all the more a task. Pick up a can of CRC QD ( quick dry) electric spray or something similar. This helps to clean the battery terminals and the balance contact wire. Follow up with lube to train and cross your fingers. As you already found out a very common issue is the coil on the balance has opened or is shorted.
  20. I was a long time member of the previous Timex forum to which I owe much gradtitude. So I am always happy to help with vintage US Time \ Timex as best I can.
