    I've found the Cousins website helpful for finding Omega part numbers, just search for the case reference.    
    https://www.cousinsuk.com/document/search?SearchString=166.0020
    The crystal diameter is 31.60 mm for this case reference.  I would recommend getting the genuine Omega crystal as the profile of the crystal integral in sealing the case.

    And bought a 5M camera for it on AliExpress.

    Paper  aperture...piece  of black paper  with a hole  punched  in it taped to the lens..experiment  with size.but I am guessing  standard  paper hole punch ought to do it. Using  only the center of the lens at a smaller  aperture  should  clear  up the edges  and bring them  into better  focus..less refraction.

    I've tried those clip on lenses and they do work. The downside is that the picture is crisp and sharp in the middle but out of focus around it, like a fish eye lens.
    This picture was taken with one of those clip on lenses.

    Hi,
    All my life I've been interested in watches of all kinds. I started watching videos about watch repairing on YouTube and ended up taking Mark's online course. Before I new it I had bought some tweezers and two China versions of the UNITAS 6497 to tinker with. Great Fun !
    Hope I'll see you around
    /P

    Hollow ground screwdrivers are really only of use if you work on the same model of watch all the time.
    The reason is if your flat ground screwdriver is too thin you just stone a tiny bit off the end to make it fatter.
    On a hollow ground screwdriver you need to remove a lot more material to make it fatter, and then hollow grind it again to suit the screw you want to undo, so its harder to swap between brands of watches that you need to adjust your screwdrivers for.
    If you worked as an 'in house' watch repairer of an expensive brand of watches, and always did the same movements then hollow ground is the best, but for most of us that works on what ever watch comes our way the flat ground is best being a compromise between time taken to reshape screwedrivers and the risk to 'chewing' screws.

    Today, I felt like sporting my Benrus Sky Chief circa late 40s or early 50s. Decided on a unique bund strap keeping to its aviation history. Very beautiful IMHO and the Venus 178 Movement timeless.

    Hi That is one great set. It is a combination of the seitz jeweling tool and the  staking too so has multiple uses. professional tool. And a couple of K&D balance staff removers , One sees these on the bay for £50 to 70.
         Whats to think about. at that price go for it.

    K&D are decent staking sets. I think my asking price is fair. @jdrichard simply had a hell of a deal.

    I have purchased a 5mp eyepiece camera. Will arrive in a few weeks. Then I get video and pictures. If I bought the microscope with the camera installed, I would not get the X70 optical zoom, only X45

    Nutiborskoku reacted to DavidMasters in My Yard Sale Find(Actually, My sister's find for me). Follow Along For Updates   
    My sister and her husband went to a yard sale last weekend. They told me they saw a bucket of what they thought were watch parts, but didn't buy. I was disappointed. My sister drove back to the sale site last Monday and ask if they still had the bucket and the lady said yes—she didn't know what it was and was about to throw out. My sister gave her $5.00 US for the bucket, and here it is.
    Each container is filled with watch movements and parts. Some appear to be new old stock that was never used. Many unusual items relating to small tools. I don't see anything newer than possibly mid 1950's.
    As I go though the bucket to inventory I will post updated pictures to this post for all to see.
    Regards...

    I would but this is the original signed crown. These are expensive and the watch will be worth quite a bit less if I fit a generic crown.
    Can't find a gasket though and a new original crown is 20 GBP. The reference number is the 14915 by the way.

    It just gave way after many years. Replace the gasket if possible and put back together. Put it back together, maybe you will have to slightly press the outer rim of the washers with a staking tool before fitting so that it so slightly widened to make a good fit.

    Nutiborskoku reacted to rduckwor in Every vintage watch tells a story   
    Vintage watches tell stories.  They are written in the dents, dings, scratches and wear marks we see on them.  I try not to alter the story anymore than necessary when I restore  them.  Sometimes it can't be helped.  To wit:  this old Wittnauer 73 Revue.  The dial was just too far gone, so I stripped it and gave it a little polish and there was a beautiful gold dial hiding under the paint.  The watch value wasn't sufficient to merit a dial restoration, so I just left it alone.  Either you like it or you don't, but it stays.  Sort of a "Stealth Gold".
    The other is a beautiful old Elgin 18/0 484 that I am restoring for my oldest son.  Hopefully he will wear it occasionally instead of the electronic monstrosity he currently wears as a daily.  Maybe for those special dress-up affairs.

    Yes I know its not a complete set of jewels, but it still has a large selection of sizes and has the endstone I need to replace the broken jewel on a German WWII aircraft clock I'm working on and best of all it only cost me $80 USD plus postage.
    Sometimes you get lucky and stumble across a real jewel (pun intended) with a too good BIN price to say no....

    Hi guys,
    I buy a lot of old watchmaker's tools and yesterday I got another 15 kg worth of old treasures
    There's one that I don't recognize though. It looks like a brass plate and it has circles with numbers in them on both sides.
    Does any of you know what this is?
    Best,
    Melvin
