  1. Hi guys thanks for the reply. I've checked with two eBay sellers who are selling the 086STZ000610 and one seller (who didn't state which case model the HE Valve would be compatible) replied and said that he had checked it for me and my case 168.1650 according to the Omega parts database required the 086ST0115 which he didn't have them and he mentioned that this 086STZ000610 is for later models of the Planet Ocean which he firmly believed it would not fit my watch and he would not give me a refund once it's been opened as it devalues the item while another seller responded to my message (the one which stated in his listing that this HE Valve is for case no 168.1650. 1651. 1652. 1653. 1658. 1660. 1663. More..........planet ocean.) saying that my watch model 2200.50.00 requires the HE Valve 086STZ000610 and I need to replace the whole complete Valve(which is 086STZ000610) as the 086ST0115 is only the steel cap not the whole assembly and he doesn't have it as SG no longer supply parts. I'm confused after reading both of their reply. I am not sure who to listen. I really need a consensus as I might sell my watch in future so I need one that is exactly the same as it came out of the box when I bought it as it might devalue the watch considerably. @JohnR725 Hi John, may I know where did you get this piece of information? Thanks! Once again, thank you to you both @noirrac1j and @JohnR725 who has helping me.
  2. Thanks for the reply J! So this should be normal right? I've never come across any Omega parts that have a second stock number. I believe this is a normal practice used by Omega right? In that case, I shall order it! Because I have been hesitating for quite a while now. Thanks for the help!
  3. Hi J, thank you for the help! Can I check do you know why are there two HE Valve for this 168.1650? Can I conclude that 086ST0115 = 086STZ000610? Up til now I still don't know why are there two models for the HE Valve. Thanks!
  4. Hi all, I would like to buy a HE Valve for my Omega Planet Ocean case no 168.1650 and according to Cousinsuk and other websites the reference no is 086ST0115. Unfortunately, it is restricted so I went to the bay and came across someone selling 086STZ000610 and it says that it's for I'm quoted "168.1650. 1651. 1652. 1653. 1658. 1660. 1663. More..........planet ocean." so I'm not sure is 086STZ000610 is 086ST0115 a not. Thanks!
  5. Hi, the other day I posted a topic regarding about cannon pinion height between 2824 and 2892 and thanks to a member help, I finally came to a conclusion that I need a H3 made by ETA but Cousinsuk currently do not have stock for the H3 Cannon Pinion with Drive Wheel. Hence I was thinking of buying Sellita H3 for SW200 instead but then I went to download the SW200 Interchangeability from Cousinsuk and apparently that part(same goes to the 4th wheel, hour wheel) is not compatible with ETA as the column under the ETA 2824 isn't ticked but on Ofrei website, they said that "SELLITA 4th wheels, Cannon Pinions, and Hour Wheels can be used in the ETA 2801-2, 2824-2, 2836-2 and related series of calibers.". I'm confused. I know the balance wheel with bridge is not interchange as I've tried before but not sure about the other parts. Can somebody shed some light on that? Thanks!
  6. Hi, thanks for the reply. The figures which I've provided for the H3 was from the Height over dial seat table or "Depassements". The actual length for the 2824 H3 are as follow:2.45mm,1.50mm,5.32mm as for the 2892 H3 are 2.40mm, 1.50mm, 5.11mm. So can I check so what you meant was that I should use the actual length rather than the figures from the dial over seat table right? Thanks!
  7. I believe the back of the aftermarket insert comes with a double sided tape. I doubt it's snap in. You only need to remove the back if you need to perform works like removing the crystal, movement and etc. But for bezel, it's on the front. You could use a butter knife mentioned above by clock boy, slot it into the gap of bezel and pry it but first tape the case and bezel with some duct tape to prevent scratching it. Luckily there's no spring underneath the bezel as this is a fixed tachymetre bezel.
  8. Hi, I have a dial that was removed from a 2892 which I believe it has a H3 cannon pinion. So I want to put that dial to a 2824 and I'd like to change the stock 2824 cannon pinion (which I believe is a H2) to one which is the closest to the 2892 H3. I can't just put the 2892 movement into the case as that case is meant for the 2824 and it would require modification like a new retaining ring for it to fit. According to a data sheet provided by ETA, in the 2892 data sheet, the table under the french word "Depassements" (I assumed it's referring to Height over dial seat), for H3 the hour wheel is 1.30mm, cannon pinion is 1.70mm and seconds wheel is 2.10mm. In the 2824 data sheet, the table under Height over dial seat for H4, the hour is 1.45mm, cannon pinion is 1.85mm and seconds wheel is 2.25mm. I'm considering either H3 or H4 but it seems that the 2824 H3 is lower than the 2892 H3. Hence I couldn't come to a conclusion and need some advice. Thanks!
  9. Hi, I believe the insert is glue on. You might want to remove the crystal first and use a hairdryer to heat up the bezel in order to soften the glue.
  10. Hi All, I was wondering how do you guys differentiate the brushed surface of a watch is coa_r_s_e (sorry I had to use underline as the word is censored!), medium or fine? Because I have a couple of watches that I'd like to polish and they all have brushed finishing on their cases so I would like to know is there anyway to differentiate which is which so that I can buy a correct abrasive block. I heard something along the lines like if the surface reflects light, ...... I forgot the rest of the sentence. Thanks! Regards, Number
  11. Hi thank you for the reply. Unfortunately the link that you had attached doesn't include the 1.50mm. Because the hands I bought from ebay( I haven't received them), I think the hour hand will fit but the gmt won't. Because on my movement according to ofrei is 1.52mm but the hands I bought is 1.40mm hence the need to enlarge it. Also I would like to ask is the Bergeon 30464 measuring gauge mandatory for this kind of work? Is it ok to work without it as it is quite expensive. Thank you for helping me!
  12. Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I don't know where to source the 1.5mm broach as most of the broaching sets comes with a 1.6mm. Also, the broach for enlarging the holes is consider a cutting or a smoothing broach? Thanks!
  13. Hey guys, I have just bought a pair of hands for my watch from ebay. I knew from the beginning that the gmt won't fit on the movement without some modifications. I did some research on enlarging watch and found out that one needs a broach and a watch hand tool. I was wondering if its possible to secure the hands using the watch hands tool and use a diamond file? Because I searched cousins and my local watch material supplies shop and they do not have the broach that I want which is 1.50mm. Thank you very much.
  14. Normally when dealing with incabloc I normally use a Rodico or the plastic cover that comes with the oiler and gently place it on top of it while the other hand using a tweezer to unlock the incabloc. That's just me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
