  1. Today I practiced using a dremel to buff the top of my watch and nail filer (carefully) to give the sides a brushed matte effect.
  2. Hey mate, look up Doctor Watches and Clocks on youtube and give Blondfellow a message. He's in Perth and fixes all sorts of watches. I'm sending my watch to him soon to be fixed. He has a lot of spare parts.
  3. Thanks for the reply. Iv'e cleaned the flexible contact strip before. I was going to give it a better clean, but Iv'e just ruined it. Iv'e accidentally knocked a few wire bonds off of the chip, lesson learnt I'm going to try and repair it, although it's going to be like doing surgery on an ant. I'm not even sure what glue to use? I'm interested in knowing what the insulator does?
  4. Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the ESA 942.711 digital movement and can help me figure out what's causing it to not work? When I received it it was obvious there was a battery leak at some point. The battery connection (see photo) has corroded and fell off, so I soldered a new connection using a led leg. After removing the black plastic cover to have a look at the IC (I think that's what it's called) I found some more corrosion. Iv'e attempted to repair the corrosion and cleaned it up. For some reason I can only get numbers on the lcd when I melt the solder on each
  5. Looks great! love seeing things come back to life like this
  6. Thank you both for the warm welcome! Great advice. Iv'e been practising with a cheap chrono from a fake watch. I had no problem taking it apart, but when I tried to put it back together there were 7 pieces left over I'm not even going to attempt to repair the Longines 6332. I am playing around with the Longines ESA 942.711 tho.
  7. Hi all Iv'e recently caught the watch bug. I have two non working 1970s Longines watches that got me interested in how watches work. Looking forward to discussing watches with you all
  8. I have cleaned it up and Iv'e used conductive paint to to re do the corroded parts, with no luck I hope its not the IC (Think that's what it's called) I will start a new thread about it.
  9. Great stuff. Iv'e got a Longines one that isn't working either. Thought it might of been an easy fix until I removed the black plastic cover and saw this...
  10. Sorry to bring up an old thread. Did you end up getting it all sorted?
