  1. Google 98B236 brings up a nice Bulova quartz chronograph but I could not find out what movement it has... Please post photos. Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  2. I'm having no luck lately downloading anything from here...is there a trick? Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  3. Welcome from a fellow Canadian! Let's see if we can help you out. Cheers! Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  4. For a watch of that value I assume that it's pressed in. From my past experience the likely reason for the pusher holding in is that the shaft is bent and preventing it from move moving smoothly in the pusher housing. Before looking to replace the pusher, I would press the shaft from inside the watch case to reset the pusher position and then check the angle of the pusher head. The circlip could be removed to release it entirely for examining the bent shaft and straightening it. I've even left a pusher assembled and grasped the pusher button and straightened it. I'm currently wearing a Speedmaster automatic Day-date that I corrected this way and it didn't affect water resistance. Good luck! Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  5. So sorry for the loss of your dear companion Sir. Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  6. I grabbed that one, thanks!! Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  7. If all else...consider reassembling the back, removing the bezel and gently using compressed to pop the crystal while wrapped up in a cloth. Or use a crystal lift if acrylic. Then remove the back and hands and gently pressing from the dial side (protected) while softening the goo with heat from a hair-dryer. Good luck! Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  8. Here's how to remove the crown/stem and then you should be able to lift the movement out. I use a hat pin to push the dimple on this type of lever and hold it down while pulling on the Crown. Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  9. I've had a mishap and lost the spring–clip for hour corrector wheel eta part 86.100.00. Please help me find a source for this tiny clip. Many thanks. Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  10. And here's another that I watched: Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  11. I was in a similar bind about a year ago and I found this very helpful: Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  12. Yes, 905 movement anyway. You should be able to get a stem for that. Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  13. You're exactly correct, the clip needs to go into a groove on the stem. I searched my service photos and enlarged a stem but sorry for the low resolution. Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
  14. There is a Polywatch diamond paste polishing kit available for glass. I bought it locally for $17.90CDN. I usually just replace crystals if I can get the size because they are relatively cheap, but I came across a Fossil with a very thick single-dome crystal and thought I would try this and it worked very well for even deep scratches.

  15. I have found that many ETA calibres have no release button but the screw beside the stem needs to be loosened a turn or so...but just until the stem is released. I suggest being very careful of pushing on anything if there's no embossed arrow pointing at it...the electronic circuits are easy to damage. Sent from my BBF100-2 using Tapatalk
