  1. Thanks Tudor and Poljot! I have seen the Bergeon 5409 holder, but it's rather expensive. It's definitely worth the money for a good product, but as this is just a hobby for me, I'm on a limited budget. So the other route would be to have a specific movement holder for an Omega 562. I haven't been able to find one, so if you happen to know of one, I'd love to know about it! This is when a 3D printer would come in real handy...
  2. Hey all, Just wondering what your particular tools/methods are for installing a center seconds hand that needs a support. Is there a best/recommended tool/method? Or is it one of those "many ways to skin a cat" type of situation? Thanks in advance!
  3. Urdelar.de (link here in case anyone else needs one) has screw 2631 listed as "Screw for Pressure Spring for Setting Lever" and that it fits caliber 562! jdm to the rescue!
  4. The diameter of the screw head is 1mm, and the diameter of the threads is 0.57mm. Thanks jdm! I'll PM you.
  5. I may have just answered my own question: I think it is part number 470 2625, but if someone is able to confirm this before I place the order, that'd be awesome!
  6. Hey lovely people! I'm in need of some help searching for a part. Half of a screw head on an Omega 562 that I'm working on has snapped off. Thankfully I was still able to remove the screw from the mainplate. The screw is for the pressure spring for the setting lever. In the Omega 562 parts catalogue, the pressure spring is part number 470 1132 but the screw is not listed. Does anyone happen to know the part number for this screw? Or is it the same as another screw in the 562? Any help is much appreciated! I'd much rather go with a genuine Omega part than have to find "some
  7. Hello all! This question is for those of you that have taken the Watch Repair Lessons Level 2 class, or possibly even Mark himself if he happens to read this. I'm wondering if someone can give me a list of tools/supplies that I will need in order to complete this class before I sign up for it (other than the Unitas 6498/Seagull 3620 listed on the website). With the way the world is right now, it could take quite some time for parts and supplies to arrive after I order them, so I'd like to get everything I need before I enrol in the class. I have passed level one, so I have the barebones s
  8. Hello my WRT friends! I'm looking for some help identifying a Seiko watch. I might be buying this watch, but I want to verify its legitimacy first. I've asked for a photo of the back of the watch, but I have not heard back from the seller. I'm not sure Seiko ever made a watch with the latitude/longitude style lines on the dial. It almost looks like a Patek Phillipe Aquanaut dial, so my brain is telling me it's a fake. I have had a look through A LOT of seiko catalogs, and they did make watches with day, date, and 24 hour subdials... Any help would be super appreciated. Thanks in ad
  9. A few minutes after I posted this, I noticed Mark had a video about polishing perspex crystals with brasso. I'll give that a try before I try to replace it.
  10. Hey all, I've got this cool Vostok with a 2414a movement. It has a really nice patina on the dial, but the crystal is really scratched up. It doesn't show in the photos, but when there's more light on it, the scratches cast really obvious shadows on the dial. So I'd like to replace the crystal. I can measure the width no problem and add 0.2mm like Mark says in his courses. I can easily order a crystal from Cousins or Esslinger, but I need help determining whether or not this is a low dome or high dome crystal. I tend to think it's a high dome, but let me know what you think.
  11. Hey WRT peeps! My mother-in-law was nice enough to trust me with her vintage Seamaster that needs servicing. Does anyone happen to have a service manual for the 562 calibre? Any other tips or information would also be appreciated. Looking forward to digging into this one.
  12. Right? I think they’re pretty cool, and certainly a conversation piece. I’ve watched Mark’s video several times, and will watch it several times more. Now comes the long wait until it arrives from Russia...
  13. @watchweasol You are fast becoming my new best friend! Thanks again!
  14. Hey all, I just picked up a mid-90’s era Vostok Commander with a 2414A movement for cheap on eBay. I’m wondering if any of you fine folks out there have any tips, advice, or reference material on Vostok watches? I realize that any reference material that’s out there is probably in Russian, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. Google translate is pretty good these days, and I also happen to have friends that speak Russian. Also, please don’t hesitate to tell me that I’m an idiot or that I bought a lemon. At least it was cheap. Thanks in advance! Attached is a photo of t
  15. Revue 31! That looks like a winner! Thanks to both of you for the help.
