  1. Does anyone know where to obtain parts for Swiss Technology production watch movements Sincerely, Jim
  2. I am looking for parts for a 1-11 STP movement in the USA if possible. Sincere thanks Jim
  3. More information from the factory this watch case didn't work properly the original case back gasket and original crystal for the back popped out and were lost during a flight when it was relatively new. I am not sure if this had to do with the pressure in the cabin but doubtful. Raymond Weil is the name on the watch with an eta movement in the watch. I have looked for a case gasket and no luck. Finding parts for cases in designer watches has always been difficult for me. The blank in the photo is sapphire If I try to press anything into straight metal a fear it will crack it would need a gasket of some sort. Sincerely Jim
  4. Hi I thought someone might be able to help me with gluing a crystal in an open case-back. I have tried two different types of UV glue and g & s all of which have eventually failed the g&S lasted ^ months but did finally fail. I will attach 2 photos one of the case back and on of the glues for review. I am thinking silicone but not convinced? btw the sapphire blank fits perfectly. Sincere thanks Jim
  5. That must be a typing error on the sellers part http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BERGEON-30102-C-LARGE-TIP-GREEN-HANDLE-WATCH-OILER-WATCHMAKERS-/400593209751?hash=item5d45374997:g:HtQAAOxyONBSaPLf same seller
  6. The item I have listed is not the same one you are looking at with cousins there is a locking lid on the one I show and its quite more robust. Just an FYI Sincerely, Jim
  7. I just bought this having used the round trays for 20 years. The lid is not pictured. I have used all types of trays covers etc and this one is great 10 spaces and a locking plastic cover. Of course its from GB Mark will be happy worth every penny of the 25 bucks. http://www.ebay.com/itm/250973978381?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Best regards all Jim

    Great advise Geo I think the tight one is the double wheel that connects the train to the second hand. I will try that one first alone. I am thinking one might be slightly bent because each wheel by itself seems loose even when I tighten the screw. But the train wont spin freely even with the pallet fork removed once the screw is tightened fully 1/2 turn and it spins fine I think that is why the watch was put away so many years ago. The double wheel is a pain to get in place lol Thank you sincerely , Jim

    yes I have checked end shake and the jewels with the screw tightened every thing is very clean the plate doesn't appear to be bent Its the large plate if it was machined improperly the watch would have never worked. I am thinking one of the pivot ends may be slightly deformed I only looked at them under a loop guess I need to look at each one under my microscope. Thank you for your thoughts Sincerely, Jim
  10. Hi its been a while since I have posted I have run into an interesting problem while servicing an Omega 420 movement I will attach a photo I fully serviced the movement very clean now the photo was a before shot. No broken pivots no cracked jewels. But when I leave the screw that I have the blue arrow pointing to loose the watch runs if I tighten the screw it stops. No other screws seem to make any difference. I have checked end-shake on all the gears. while the screw is loose the watch will run all the way down. I did notice that in stem down position the watch runs -100 spd slow dial up or dial down its fine and long as the screw is not tightened? All suggestions welcome. Sincerely Jim
  11. whoops I will need someone smarter than me to get it working :geek: Jim
  12. One additional thing to note this unit has an 8 inch working range (distance to work) which is great for me most of the other units at this price were lower in range. Jim
