  1. WOW !!! great job ... I've been "playing with dials" for some years now and I'm amazed how quickly you did that ... congrats !!! Now your oldie looks like a 4925 ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  2. I needed a Lorsa P75A for a custom build and I saw a little watch on eBay, quite ugly but with the right movement and a nice bracelet ... Bought it for €20 shipped ... The Lorsa ticks great at 5s/day so much better than I expected ... customer will be happy ... And the bracelet looks !!! great !!! on my Ingersoll Sealion ... Today is a happy day [emoji16] Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  3. It's a direct swap ... easy as long as you know how to dismantle a keyless works and put it back ... The lest part you put back is the setting lever ... use the 2 positions instead of the 3 positions and the "gohst position" is removed ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  4. Below is a link the an ETA setting lever with 2 positions ... https://forum.replica-watch.info/mobiquo/redirect.php?pid=8853506 It looks like this and here's 3 positions setting lever for 2824 or 2836 movements ... exactly the same but with 3 positions ...

  5. No need to buy a complete movement as you can buy those "2 positions setting levers" as parts. I still have to search where I saw them so I'll do that on Monday and post a link. On July I'll is 2 off those movements so I'll try to shoot some good pics along the process and post as well. Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  6. Hi Johnnie ... I definitely love that watch and will wear it a lot, in good health and proudly ... It's ben a long and challenging journey to put it on my wrist but 1000% worthy ... Thanks again [emoji106] Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  7. Some month ago Johnnie here gave an Ingersoll Sealion that needed some care and had no bezel anymore ... It took me some time but today it's on my wrist ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  8. I have been of from watches for some time because of Covid-19 but I have prepared a new insert ... more red than orange ... that I still have to finish [emoji16] Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  9. Hi Johnnie ... Hope you and you family are OK and have not been infected by Covid-19 ... I just wanted to show you what finally on my wrist ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  10. If I may ... I wouldn't use such a tool for a steel bezel without retaining ring ... Would you kindly post a side pic of one of your watches to check if a single edge razor blade could be used ? Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  11. The original Venus 188 and the early 7730 had a flat pillar plate. The later 7730 and the 7733 had a beveled pillar plate. What you could do is to remove the dial from your 7730 and check if : - your 7730 has a beveled pillar plate - the holes for dial feet are about 12:45 and 8:15 If YES then a 7733 dial may work. If your 7630 is an early one and has a flat pillar plate, then probably not. Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  12. Question, IMHO, is "is the bezel removable or not" ... to answer that a good (no blurry) close up pic showing the side of you case could help a lot ... If your bezel IS removable you could use a single edge blade (one-side is protected so that you can kill your finger) like that one https://images.app.goo.gl/BTNaBfoa9eCDW8DbA - remove the bracelet and put you watch case on a flat surface ... upside up - hold your single edge blade horizontally and put the sharp side on the "groove" between bezel and case - gently hit the protected size of the blade, repeatedly until the blade goes between case and bezel - remove the blade and proceed the same all around the bezel so that it moves up about 1/4 mm - proceed again all around the bezel until you can insert a thicker blade (pocket blade for instance) between case and bezel - gently use the pocket blade as a lever, proceeding all around the case, to slowly move the bezel up and up until it comes off Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  13. Sorry ... you asked about the dial feet ... my bad Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  14. 7730 was basically a Venus 188 7733 was completely redesigned but same fonctions as 7730 I think the position of subdials are the same but I'm not 100% certain ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  15. I know ... so this weekend I'll measure HOW LONG the indices are on a 6917 dial ... probably shorter but who knows ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  16. I have a 6917 dial somewhere ... This weekend I'll check howling the indices are ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  17. Unfortunately that dial is for a 6917 DJ ... ladies size ... - case diameter is 26mm - dial diameter is about 20.3mm So it won't fit a 34mm DJ case ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  18. Hi and welcome to this forum ... There's a seller in Italy who sells a complete set of 18K indexes for €95 shipped ... https://www.ebay.fr/itm/ORIGINAL-ROLEX-18-K-INDEX-6694-QUADRANTE-DIAL-CADRAN-PART-PARTS-PRECISION/153459401161 The indexes are probably too short as they come from a Precision who is 34mm only but who knows ? You still can contact the seller to check the size are the indexes and which is the distance between the pins ... If those dimensions are OK you could clean everything, paint the indexes with 2 thin coats of white nail lacquer and change the all set ...
  19. That one is more than decent so congrats ... but what would be really interesting is that you tell us more about the method you use ? Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  20. 15 scds a day is 7.5 mns a month and 1.5 h a year so not that bad IMHO ... set your watch once a week and live with that ... About the stucked springbar what I would do is : - remove the one that isn't stucked - source a pair of identical new springbars - remove the stucked one with force ... no matter if it brakes it as new springbars will be used - clean the case between the lugs - put the new bracelet on with the new springbars - enjoy Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  21. What is too good to be true is NOT true ... If I had an original dial made for a rare 2914 Railmaster ... a watch that sells around 13K$ ... I would definitely NOT sell it for $85 ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  22. Looking at your pics (though blurry) I would say 100% original ... 1 - no marker on the insert below 60 ... some aftermarket inserts have one but I've never seen an original insert with a marker at 60 2 - 1m, markers much thinner than 5mn markers ... on 80% of aftermarket inserts all markers have the same thickness 3 - numbers about the same thickness than 5mn markers (so larger than the 1mn markers) ... typically original IMHO I have no idea about the dimple between 75 and 80 but who cares ?
  23. Never worked on a Pogue but most Seiko inserts are press-fit. What I would do is to remove the bezel ring first then pop the insert off pushing from the "inside" of the bezel. Then press the new insert in using a crystal press with nylon dies and press the bezel back on. But that's only "what I would do" on "my watch" of course ... proceed as you feel it and at your own risk [emoji6] Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
