  1. Part 200/3 is probably broken. So drive to hands is lost. Or drive train is stuck and the impulse from the battery keeps the balance swinging. A good spray of some sort of contact cleaner can sometimes gets these movements going again.
  2. All i can add is the 92 on the back of the dial looks correct and dates the dial to Feb 1969. Which is correct for a proof dial.
  3. 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!
  4. You also need to use silicone grease to help the gasket slip over the lip and with bezel rotation
  5. Dial spacer clearance? Does the day date align with the dial off? If so some thing is fouling.
  6. 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.
  7. I seem to remember doing this many years ago.
  8. 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.
  9. Press here...its more visible in a certain crown position
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. Never worked on one of these movements but if you remove the indexing spring from the minute record wheel does it still stop?
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Ok not sure why some are called Electric and some Electronic. I believe the dial must come off to get to day & date. The crown should quick set the date in the in position. I have a similar Q quartz version but with a circuit board
  19. You can access the dial screws from the bridge side. Turn the circled screw 180 degrees until small slot is next too dial pin.
  20. Seconds 2428 well a Slava in fact
  21. OK I have an m62 movement and it's not running but the one in the picture is, but not sure what movement but it's from a no day date dial. So can I swap day date dial plate over? If so how do you stop Bridge popping off when you remove the 3 screws? Is it just a case of be careful or is there a better way?
  22. This may help if I have the right movement
  23. JerseyMo you seem to be the timex electric go to person. Some questions please Like a coil does the balance coil have a ohms resistance that makes it unusable or usable. I have found with my meter that if I go from positive to negative terminal and tweak the balance if it reads something its usable and if not it's probably garbage if spring makes good contact on balance. Any other tests? I also found some balance and cocks work and have less end play in some movements than others. I'm guess the white jewel is broken in the mainplate maybe. How does one hold the movemen
  24. I'm quickly becoming a Timex Electric addict. Learning to service these. Easier than citizen Cosmotrons and Seiko Elnix, but fiddly to get the balance in with that magnet and contact Spring and pallet fork all fighting me! Only the fixed magnet versions with the crown on the rear. First tear down to remind me how to put it together.
  25. You should be able to carefully bend the second hand straight. Patience and time (some of us have a lot of that at the moment) Good luck. Stay safe.
