  1. Hello, I use the Bergeon 5700-Z... and I notice some extra work with the standard set. You always have to remove the strap or bracelet to fix the watch in the basic holder. Think they have a optional set so this will help the problem. https://www.boley.de/en/shop/4168.case-holder/510358.case-holder This problem is not present with the standard Horotec tool because of the different standard base and the Horotec is cheaper.

  2. Hello Guys, Nobody have good connections with Tag Heuer AD or service center? Need a barrel and main spring for a Cal Heuer 01, but not possible to get from TAG Heuer. Thanks!
  3. Therefore, see that you always have a magnetic strip around, to find the small pieces on the ground again. https://www.toolspecialist.be/688-flexible-magnetic-strips-2-150mm-e-magnets-688?___store=be&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIopfQv7We5QIVguR3Ch34KQ4gEAQYECABEgJLvfD_BwE And don't forget them to demagnetize afterwords.
  4. You can also do this... You buy a pocketwatch movement on Ali: https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/32806280705.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.34b54349dQO0ww&algo_pvid=8a7fa33b-2ffe-4516-a3f0-2f99ad850e02&algo_expid=8a7fa33b-2ffe-4516-a3f0-2f99ad850e02-7&btsid=12a0a0d6-6e53-4c43-8884-7dcab98f3717&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_7,searchweb201603_55 It's a ETA clone, and practice on this one... It's a bit bigger than a normal movement. After your done, and when it's still working, you assemble it in a case, and were it proud, you
  5. Received it.. Nice for use as a "press papier" on the workbench.
  6. But, the picture make sense, so imo I understand why we are doing this.
  7. Well this picture say it all! ;-) And when I see this I understand why.
  8. Like I say, I am only the pianist. But hey every body will have there thought about something... Only time will tell my experience... but for now I am a rookie and just follow the pack. ;-) But I can understand the point that hollow blades fit better in the screws and so you wont damage them.
  9. Well because with hollow screwdrivers, you have more grip the teacher say ( Omega service center ) and les chance to slip away or to damage screws... You don't want to damage movements, especially now with open case backs. But thats what we learn the first lesson, I am only the pianist. ;-)
  10. The first thing we do in the watch corse is make all students screwdrivers hollow... ;-)
  11. In school we uses this one, also to make hollow blades on a screw driver. https://www.beco-technic.com/werkzeuge-verbrauchsartikel/schraubendreher/zubehoer-fuer-schraubendreher/schleifwerkzeug-fuer-schraubendreherklingen/schleifwerkzeug-profi-fuer-schraubendreherklingen.html But is very expansive. This one is cheaper, but don't know if you can use it on al screwdrivers from the Bergeon set, because it only have 3 holders. https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/screwdriver-sharpener-tool-horotec But this is wat you really need:
  12. Or I just leave it in place and clean it like this? So I am sure I don't break anything. I also can clean it like this?
  13. So here the 3é one... This one is not working, also a cylindric balance... Oil and grease is dried out. The pinion I can't get off... same as the 1é one... think for this part I need a pinion remover tool? Or is there a other way? Need also to order a second hand, this one is missing.
  14. So guys, I dismantle the watch today... Seems that there is a Miyota FS01 inside? See pictures. Is there a cheap Chinese clone for that? ;-) New they are 21 euro + VAT Some small differences, but think thats the date position that is different? Mvt. Miyota FS01 10 1/2''' SC DATE4 CHRONO PARALLEL PUSH BUTTON 24H SEC MIN Quartz(377) or Mvt. Miyota FS01 10 1/2''' SC DATE6 CHRONO PARALLEL PUSH BUTTON 24H SEC MIN Quartz(377) or Mvt. Miyota FS01 10 1/2''' SC DATE3 CHRONO PARALLEL PUSH BUTTON 24H SEC MIN
  15. What I notice on photo's from pocket watches, and from my own pocket watches, is that the second hand is almost always gone or loose... Strange. For this one, it seems that the movement is not from the housing? Or am I wrong?
  16. For your information... Boley is a German supplier of watch stuff and jewelry and the stacking sets they sell are from Star.
  17. Thanks all... Will make picture of the movement this week and post it here in hope someone recognize it.
  18. Hello guys, I have a 15 year old Quartz watch, still in very nice condition with ceramic bracelet. The only problem with it, is that every 3 monds the battery is empty. Can it be that I have to take the movement out and clean / oil the mechanical parts? Can this solve the problem? Thanks for the advice. Koen
  19. I don't think it's the stem screw that is jammed?? So I guess it's easer to take out the compleet movement, remove the hands and dial before you go use oils and chemicals to unloose that screw. Thats just what I would do, but I am not a specialist.
  20. I buyed this one and happy with it: https://www.astromarket.org/stereo-miscroscopen/euromex-stereomicroscoop-sb-1402-stereoblue-2-4/p,44675
  21. Nice job man, don't thing I could do that! Your movies helped me a lot with my first 2 pocket watches, lucky they still worked before I take them apart and were compleet. The Hebdomas ( still not started with that one ) like you have is missing his bezel, but if I see how you make this small parts, it must be possible for someone to make a bezel to??? Keep posting movies and pictures.
  22. I already mentioned Dumet to our friend @JBerry Bud Jan had problems with his website, so the quote question came in very late, don't know if hé answer yet. Prices starting from about 1250 euro ex VAT ex transportation. ( He bring the bench to you and put it together ) If you want prices, just let me know what you want, I have login's fo manny suppliers.
