  1. How much if you are going to sell? PM ?
  2. Same case as the automatic constellation 198.0062 . Cousinsuk says it's a PX5260 and boley.de says 5260 .
  3. Can it be a AS calibre 168? Hard to find any info this old movements . Have a bunch of old AS movement that don't have any number on them. I think they didn't use any numbers on the earley movements
  4. Looks like the click is not sitting as it should. You can see it thru the oval hole next to the mainspring barrel. One thing is to check the lid of the barrel. Is it closed?
  5. Russian ? I have tried but has also failed. I took the easy way and took a complete set from an other movement. Can probably be removed with a staking set.
  6. Looks a little tired. You can buy a new spring and put in pretty easy. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&FHF_175 Here you find find the size of the spring. I thought cousinsuk had it but it was obsolete. You can maybe find a newer FHF 175 movement pretty cheap. And use that mainspring.
  7. You Swedes on this site . Check Anders Andersson site out. https://anderstestarblog.wordpress.com/ Great page for all. Not just for Swedes .
  8. This page. http://watchmaking.se/ You have a good page there which translate from English to Swedish . Maybe wasn't that easy to find. As Per Torphammar name isn't on that page. Only the mailaddress.
  9. Fantastic . Going to steal this method from you. Have done some with Lume and clear epoxi . But this would probably look better. And more original. Epoxi and lume would work fine on the Vostok
  10. Sent an email to Akku-haug that has the battery . But they can't send it to me as it is dangerous goods . Any German in here that can buy it for me and send in a envelope. There are small batteries in phones and all sorts of things sent by postage. But it's there policy.
  11. Maybe i can ask the store that sells batteries here in town. They have a lot of different batteries. I buy watch batteries from them. So maybe they have a supplier that has this XR11630W battery .
  12. I found one on a German company . They wouldn't send to Sweden . Why i don't know. I will check on Monday. Maybe cousinsuk can get it for me to.
  13. I have tried all i can think about. Search the internet. Have a A156A Seiko with solar panel. It needs a rechargable battery. The one before has but a normal 390 battery in. And the LCD is a little weak due to this . XR11630W is 2V and the 390 is 1;55V . That is why. And the solar panel can destroy the 390 battery by charging it up.
  14. Depends on how it sits . Some you can just put in. Others you need to remove the settings to put a new one in. Which movement?
  15. Mark use a Platex but the principle is the same . I use the same method. So far it has worked fine. I cracked a balance wheel some time ago. But not sure it was my fault.
