  1. Hi there. Just received the watch in post... Thanks both for your help, however, I’m really struggling to put a round about date on this watch. Can’t see anything similar anywhere, Shape and colour wise I mean... does anyone have any ideas
  2. Hi all, just brought this chronograph from eBay and it’s the first ussr watch I’ve got... I got it because I thought it was fairly cheap... £40... and I liked the dial / hands lume. I can’t find anything about it or how much it’s worth.. can anyone please enlighten me..
  3. I would really like to get my hands on a freshly made chronograph case similar size and shape at to the second post. Do people get these machine made. I’m really surprised I cannot find anything like this
  4. Hi all, I have a relatively small wrist and hate large watches. I am looking to build my own unique chronograph sourcing all parts from the eBay. Using something like a valjoux 7750. Now I don’t want the typical Rolex wannabe Daytona case but want something quite small and with side pushers also. I have scoured the internet for something along these lines but no luck. I hope someone can suggest... can anyone suggest anything. I can enjoy a Rolex datejust size on my wrist, midsize.
  5. The bezel fits okay. I steady the ball on spring and press on the bezel, however, the springs force it pushing up one side and therefore not giving a smooth click
  6. Hi all, got a new bezel inesert today, when I popped off the ring I noticed that the ball had fell out of its seating. I tried to push it back but it can’t get back in it’s seat, it just keeps Going down and up. Anyone with any knowledge know how to fix this. now it just roughly slides
  7. Just seems odd... movement caliber no is MB 2066
  8. His there. Brought this watch from us, and just wondering if it was a fake. Winder is a tad rough and the movement looks odd. What do people think? Couldn’t see why somebody would spend time faking a fairly cheap vintage watch?
  9. Hi all, can I have some advice on how to clean rust and muck off of the dial. If you see near the 1-4 there is some rust spots and marks. Is there a gentle way to clean this up? Tah,
  10. I had tried to polish the crystal with a dermal but have pushed my luck and scorched the bottom of it. Can’t be seen clearly from pics but it beyond polish and as for the hands. I wanted to get a original white Hour / minute hands and red second hand.
  11. Hi all. Got a new one here. It needs some minor work. However I’m struggling to find any parts for it as it’s quite obsolete. I want a new crystal, new hands. Does anyone know where to get these parts, even from another movement that’s comparable? tah,
  12. Hi all, I have recently serviced my seiko 7002. Stripped and hand cleaned. Looking shiny and brand new. Everything was tying up wel when I put it all back together, however, when I put the balance on, it didn’t want to turn. Thought this could have been down to a damaged bushing so I then stripped again and changed the main plate. Still didn’t want to turn after that. I even changed the balance to from another seiko which was working perfectly and again it didn’t turn on the serviced watch. I am lost. The pallet forks click as they should with power. Cleaned the jewels. any ideas?
  13. HiI have brought the same movement. My hour and minute hands do not move? I suspect due to the cannon pinion and that assembly not being properly tight and the wheel underneath How would I tighten this? I’ve just had another look, I can’t seem to get the plate wheel that fits on finally to be fixed in place while turning all wheels, it just sort of lifts off itself
  14. I have brought another movement like this and having the same trouble with the hands not running? How would I gently push the cannon pinion down? movement is an ETA 2472
