  1. Thank You...Yema has some interesting looking watches . Often hard to get .
  2. They say that the third time is a charm ,...I'll take it . I pulled out my Yema Meangraf from storage and discovered it had a now familiar symptom ,...The watch is running , the second hand is moving , but the minute and hour hand didn't budge . Elementary My Dear , it's a bit of slippage between the drivetrain gear on one side of the drivetrain bridge , and the mated clamshell gear on the other side of the bridge . I was down to my last set of new gears , but I got an idea , that if it worked the watch hands would soon fall in line and..........move with out using any new par
  3. Well , it's a few years later and I came across another AS 1746/47 With the Identical problem of the second hand moving , but not the hour or minute hand , or they work intermittently . This time I knew it was the same two parts mentioned earlier , The gear whose pinion protrudes through the baseplate , and the "clamshell Gear " on the dial side of the plate . The drivetrain side gear was running , but the clamshell gear was slipping . I now know that the two gears can't be separated cleanly and reused . I used my hand levers to separate the gears and replaced BOTH gears to ge
  4. Today I pulled out a seldom worn Crepas L'ocean.... Here's the link to their site.... http://www.crepaswatches.com/styled/photos-4/index.html There are quite a few features on this watch and although it does have a presence , I find it very comfortable to wear . It comes with the Stainless Steel Bracelet , and also a silicone bright Blue strap with the link to clear he crown .
  5. How about some 70's Funky Chunky ?? Heres a Lucian Piccard 17 J , automatic in Fab original condition . Time for some Funky-Town ...........Sorry for the bad pics...
  6. Ohh , nice dial and hands . Quite handsome for sure .
  7. Hi balaton, Welcome to a fun , and very helpful forum . To your point of unloved brands or watches housing the same movements as other brands . I have a vintage Seiko Laurel that needed a new balance staff or replacement balance assembly but I could not even figure out what the movement caliber is because it pre-dates current methods that Seiko now uses to ID their watches . Believe me , I had this repair on a back burner for a long time because I needed the parts I couldn't even ID . I am not quite sure which year the Timex 400 was produced for a short window , [ I know that mem
  8. Hi WDC , I just came across your post as I was looking for Info to service a Citizen 8110A Bullhead I just acquired . I too had mostly worked Seiko 6138 & 9's , and a few Swiss Chrono's . And as I'm sure everyone agrees , you can never take too many pics on strip down for reassembly . Sometimes on a complicated or busy movement that I am not used to , I will take pics before disassembly . then practice the reassembly right then just to reinforce my memory . I also draw pics with my own hieroglyphics and use ice cube trays to hold my parts with their respective screws . This
  9. I dunno , If getting a sweet watch like that one for that price is being young and stupid ,..then count me in....figuratively speaking . In any case , I really like your watch and went to dig mine out because I thought they were the same . I can honestly say that I am just starting to learn the numbers and nuances of Omega watches , and the speedmasters in particular all look the same to me but I am slowly starting to see and learn the subtle differences . Here is a pic I found on the internet of what mine looks like . One big difference in mine compared to most I hav
  10. Really clean example of this watch ,...Nice work Johnnie . They say , "like minds think alike" , ........That may be true .
  11. Hi , does your watch have a black dial ? Is 2500D the Omega Model number ? I am not up to speed on the Omega numbering system . I have the blue wavy dial 300 . Also a Pre-bond 200m . Oh , say hello to your model . She looks like a newer model .
  12. That's very Nice . What is written on the dial ?
  13. The dial says Japan . Do you know who made the movement ?
