  1. ETA 798.002 movement is found in a Gucci, quartz watch.................

      The movement is for a Gucci watch ETA 978.002 sorry for the mistake........

  2. Mainspring can't be changed. You need a new barrel with mainspring . Zodiac use a sealed for life barrel . Problem is they are rare and superhard to find. And 86 use a thinner mainspring because they are 36000 Hz movement so can't use a 72 or any other barrel.
  3. Evertite crystal are very nice . Have used them on some Chronographs with same kind of chapter ring. They are hard to find here in Europe. And think they are of better quality then Sternkreuz If you are in USA check tiptopcrystals out. They could be opened? https://www.tiptopcrystals.com/
  4. Had a Divertite . The crystal is very thick . Inside diameter without chromed ring is about 1,6 mm smaller then outside. This is 29,7 so inside is 28,1 mm Then had some others that are about 1mm smaller inside. So a 30 mm is 29 mm . 1 mm high chromed ring. A divertite is about the same inside as a evertite. But has much thicker acrylic on top .
  5. Can have a check if i find a 30 mm crystal with crystal ring tomorrow . And the what the inside diameter is. Also have some diver and evertite crystals . But not in 30 mm . But can see how high it is So the chapter ring fits.
  6. Hard to say. You probably have to test which fits the best . You could test with a Sternkruez ATC or ATCT also. What diameter does it have.
  7. It could be made a little better but works very good . heard of some that has problems when the movement have a day disc. But has worked fine for me . Still have one of them left. But some small tabs up would make it perfect.
  8. It's a company in Australia that sells parts for Seiko. His name is Adrian Sellick and is a watchmaker from down under. VTA stands for Vintage Time AU. Don't know if he sells on Ebay . But did before under the name halfoeight. Have the nice forum Wristsushi also.
  9. Looks good. I have used VTA star a few times to save old 5606 date mechanism.
  10. Looks like a normal mineral crystal . What reference does the watch have . 7009-..... .
  11. That is almost impossible. Can be done by removing the thin washer. But it's hard to put it back again. Can maybe be done like this. https://adventuresinamateurwatchfettling.com/2015/10/12/crown-revival-seiko-6105-and-62mas-crown-gasket-replacement/
  12. Spline is the gear type cogs on the outside of the pushers. If it's internal it should be on the inside of the tube. Think you need something like this. https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/pendant-tube-chronograph-fitting-removing
  13. I just bought a bottle of 9010 . Should last me a year or more. So next time maybe. Need some 1300 soon. So maybe test that . What kind of light source do you use. Is there a special ultra expensive Bergeon lamp.
  14. Will be fun to hear you opinion on the fluorescent lube when you tested it .
