  7. Hi guys Can you get replacement regulator for one of these. (Hope thats correct) The little pin that holds the spring to the boot has snapped of. Firstly can you get the part? and what part do you have to buy? The whole part (cock) or just boot and pin or just pin or can you not do anything to salvage it? Its a cyma cal 335 cheers gary
  8. HI These are two pallets 1 old and i just purchased. They both do not have the little nipple thing that goes into the jewel hole.Surely this is wrong? Or is this another silly beginners mistake? Movement is as 1506. The docs on cousins show the part but not so you can see the bit you wanna see. cheers gary
  9. Hey guys I just need a winding stem for this movement It has been a 2 piece stem and the outer part of the stem needs to be a male as inner is female. but when i look it up on docs in cousins its saying the part for this movement is a 1 piece number 401 But they also have (but obsolete Inner and outer stems. When i look on ranfft it just gives 2 numbers for the stem w2426 / w3226. I am confused. I know you cannot tell me which 1 is correct but is it cousins 1 piece number 401, or the inner and outer pieces you cannot get, and what does w2425 or w3226 mean. driving me crazy

Hey guys I need watch hands any kind or sort to fit a watch the hole size (and yes i have checked it is 1.6, 0.8 and the seconds 0.2.Tried cousins and they omnly seem to do them up to 1.5 for hour hands. So were would i look now for a set of hands for a watch which the hour hand hole needs to be 1.6? cheers gary
