  1. Hi Tim the post with a dimple that you are referring to is called the setting lever and in this watch it is a spring push type (there are others that are screw type). You should be able to remove the stem by pressing the setting lever and pulling out the stem at the same time. See this previous post from Mark on the same:

  3. Hi everyone I don't do watch repair as a job, but have been doing quite a bit on servicing my one watches and service / restore some wirst watches from family and friends. What now seems to be obvious is that I've been taking some risk and having some 'sweat hands' moments when it gets to manual wind the mainspring back into the mainspring barrel. Any advice of a mid-range set that could be good for amateur use, but with enough quality to last for upcoming years as an amateur? Any special features / characteristics that I must be aware of? Many thanks Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  4. Try to put the all movement in the demagnetizer. I've seen surprisely big improvements with the Seiko movements by just doing this. It does not match necessarily with diferent behaviour on different positions, but it will not harm. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks Rogar! It is a Rolex Duofix 'U' shape and I was able to clean it, oil it and assemble it fine with the information on your link. Thanks! I would have tried to pressure one of the legs instead of pushing the top in the direction of the center to free it from the chaton and most probable would have break it. You are becoming my shock spring master :-). Saved me twice :-)
  6. Hi everyone Any advise on best method to remove and re install the small 'u' shape shock spring of the escape wheel on the movement MST 414 (Roamer)? Thanks all Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  7. Shock spring for Chinese Caliber 2650S

    Dear Rogart63 Thanks so much for your spare parts. I swap the whole incabloc and works perfect. Attached some photos of the finished work. Amazing the performance that a $25 movement can have. I'm really happy with the outcome of the service. It is a cheap watch but I always loved the design and should be good to run for a few years more. Thanks all.
  8. Did you get the parts i sent . Have a Chinese watch with that shok spring if you like. Looks excatly like it. even has mao tse tung on the front. 

  9. Hi Clockbiy No, I have the spring and the cap jewel. Missing the chaton with its balance staff jewel. Thanks
  10. Hi everyone was just servicing an old Longines Lady L817.4 from the family and lost the lower incabloc (part 325). Just got away from by brass tweezers and totally vanished!!... Tried eBay but no luck. Any suggestion on where I can find this? Many thanks
  11. Hi everyone Any help with the right procedure to replace the gasket on the Seiko 6139-6002 stem? Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Shock spring for Chinese Caliber 2650S

    Thanks very much all. The shape is particular. They should not be the most effective, but it is quite handy to attached it without having to disassemble the incabloc.
  14. Shock spring for Chinese Caliber 2650S

    Thanks so much Clockboy. Please see the photo of the spring and measures (apologies for draft drawing; all measures in mm).
  15. Hi everyone Currently doing a service to a skeleton I bought more than 10 years ago. I really like the style of it, although it is a cheap watch with a Chinese Standard movement caliber 2650S. Broke one of the shock springs and could not find anything similar to buy and replace it (apart from buying the all movement). Tried to look at the Kif shock springs since some are similar, but they will not fit. Any help on where to buy this shock spring would be very appreciated. Many Thanks
