  1. You need to bend the brass tab circled in red back up into place to hold the stem. You must have pressed too hard when removing or it was a already deformed. In the hand setting position the brass tab stops the watch when it contacts another brass strip that goes to the circuit board and stops the stem from pulling out. You may have to remove dial to do this operation. Love these jump minute watches!
  2. You also need to use silicone grease to help the gasket slip over the lip and with bezel rotation
  3. Dial spacer clearance? Does the day date align with the dial off? If so some thing is fouling.
  4. JerseyMo our resident Timex electric expert recommends a good squirt of contact cleaner. This is usually to get them going. But this sounds like a cannon pinion problem. I think it's got something to do with a spring clip that locks in the drive from the train to the hands. So needs to cone apart. If I rememberthat clip is tricky to fit.
  5. I seem to remember doing this many years ago.
  6. Love and hate these electric q quartz watches. When they run they usually run well if they don't my success rate at servicing is 50%. I hate the day and date indexing springs which are really fiddly and then you have a dial with tabs to fit over them its painful! Fitting the coil balance, near a magnet also has its moments of frustration.
  7. Press here...its more visible in a certain crown position
  8. My bad the crystal might have to come out from the bezel the other way......that might be why it cracked. Strange it's 31mm as the case number quotes 29mm but sometimes case backs get swapped. ID for gaskets I believe.
  9. And further to Nucejoe's remark It could be the Cannon Pinion being loose. It slips at calendar change time. When changing the time is the crown really easy to move the hands? Often a sign of a loose CP.
  10. The Bezel might pop off the case when you remove the crystal so be aware. The Bezel might be difficult to fit back to case if the gasket is hard....a little silicone grease might help ease it in. But.....If you support the bezel the crystal will come out Crystal is 290P02LN03 or 29mm generic glass crystal and you can measure the thickness. crown gasket is DB0055B01 generic is possible 1.75mm or 2.05mm not sure case back gasket is FH2980B02 or generic flat 29.8mm x 0.5mm might be fine try cousins for spares in UK
  11. http://boley.de/en/case-parts Lünette Dichtung translates as bezel seal so I would think that's what you need but I'm no expert!
  12. I did one of these years ago but cant remember anyway some info for your case...and Cousins have it in stock! crystal Citizen 54-L5553F 914154L5553F crown Citizen 506-X832B 9142506X832B glace gasket Citizen 393-7684 91433937684 bezel gasket Citizen 393-7800 Lünette Dichtung 91433937800
  13. Never worked on one of these movements but if you remove the indexing spring from the minute record wheel does it still stop?
  14. I would start with a Seiko 7009 or 7s26 plenty of spares still available and loads of used ones on ebay. Cousins in the UK for parts.
  15. I bet this watch needs a dial spacer to raise the dial height as you say. Or....one of those thin brass washers on top of the hour wheel.
