  1. Hello. I am working on this vintage A.Schild movement and a jewel on the wheel bridge. It is a jewel for the 3rd wheel but is cracked so needs replacement. I measured the outer and inner diameter and they are 1.2mm and 0.17mm respectively. Could any one help me find the replacement for this jewel?? I am always grateful for your help.
  2. Hello. Dear watchmakers. I have a very old timepiece from Rolex that I am about to work on.. From googling, I found out that this is called "trench watch" that might had been used during WWI or any other war in that era ( 1910~1920) However, I could not figure out the reference no. of the movement. All I know about the movement is that it is 29mm in diameter and has 15 jewels. I am actually looking for a replacement movement for this watch since the mainspring must be replaced due to damage. Plus, I am also looking for the rachet wheel with "Rolex" engraved to replace the existing one. I have found similar movements on the web(the third photo added) but click part was not the same. I wonder if the one with different type of click would have parts that are replaceable. To sum up, my questions are 1) the reference of the movement. 2) how I can get parts or the whole movement for replacement 3) does a movement with different click type would be suitable for replacement. Thanks and I wish you a great day.
  3. Hello. I am now working on a vintage "trench watch" movement from 1910s that I mentioned before with a question regarding identification of the movement. (I still haven't got the exact ref. of the movement.) As I was disassembling the movement, my screwdriver slipped and broke one of the parts that function as a spring for the click. I tried looking for replacement but I am not sure what I should look for. Also, one of the jewels on the wheel bridge is broken so I need a jewel as well. Could anyone advice me on how to find the correct part for click spring and the jewel for the wheel bridge?? **Could the click spring be put back together?? Thanks. You are always of great help.
  4. Hello. I am working on a vintage piece but I could not find the name(ref no.) of the movement. Could anyone tell me the name of this movement?? All I know is that it has "AS" written on the mainplate. Thanks!
  5. Hello, Would anybody have any idea which make/caliber watch movement this is based on the photos provided. I can only find the L in the fan-like shape symbol on the bottom plate. Nothing underneath the balance as expected. I'm guessing it is from the 1920's era. Thanks, Adam
  6. hi, I am in need of the eb8800 movement in full working condition, thanks
  7. Good afternoon everyone. I have finally taken apart my wife's grandfathers Timex watch, which has a 24 movement. I have several questions: 1. The stem is really sloppy, what can cause that? 2. What is the best way to clean this movement. I do not have a machine so it will be done manually. 3. Where can I get a crystal? Is there a place to buy them if I measure it? Thank you for all of your help.
  8. Hello.I have been working on a vintage movement. It is German movement, PUW 1561. It is automatic and has date with quickset function by pulling and pushing back the crown. Before I disassembled it, the quickset did not work instead the date changed as hands passed 00:00. However, as I am trying to put the watch back, the date won't change either by quickset or just manually. The date disk won't move no matter how long I move the hands. I think I have assembled the date function part wrong but I have no idea how the parts should fit it. I read a post about servicing this same movement but it did not work for me. (http://watchguy.co.uk/service-arowe-puw-1561/) Could anyone help me how to put the date parts back in?? I attached a photo of the movement I am working on.
  9. Hello, I have recently bought and serviced this lovely 100 year old 'Spikins from Dent' pocket watch. The movement seems higher quality than some watches of this era that I've serviced, having 15 jewels, and being warranted English. It is housed in a solid silver Dennison Watch Case Co. case and has a 1918 Birmingham hallmark. Given the above info and the attached photos, would anybody be able to identify and tell me whether this is any particular brand of movement? I notice an S in a five-pointed star on the train bridge - is this a trade mark on a movement?
  10. Hello fellow watch repairers. I recently serviced a vintage watch which was in quite nice running condition(rate:+10, amp:270, b/e: 0.3). After cleaned and assembled, the movement ran with a bit lower amplitude than before(amp: 240~250) but it did not stop for hours. I thought that amplitude will get back to normal level after a day or so and I reinstalled hands to put the movement back in to the case. However, only after few minutes, the watch stopped. I felt that something went wrong when putting hands back in so I removed the hour and minute hands. I was about to move on to the second hand and I noticed that second hand was ticking again. This is my first time dealing with this kind of situation. Please I need your help.
  11. Hello. I am about to work on a movement which was cased in watch from 'Garrard'. The watch was cased in Dennison case made in England. I want to know the name of this movement but I have no clue. Please I need your help!
  12. Hello, I got this vintage movement from Constructa LTD which is know as a movement manufacturer owned by Mondaine. Cuuld anyone help me find the name for this movement?? On the train bridge, it says '17 jewels, seventeen, unadjusted, constructa watch LTD, 4433 swiss'
  13. Hello, thanks to all of you who helped me out on my last question about Molnija pocket watch. Yesterday, I opened up my new vintage watch, Justex 21 jewels full anker hand wound watch. I took the movement apart and serviced it but I could not figure out what kind of movement it is. All I know is that it has 21 jewels with frequency of 18000A/h .Any ideas would help.
  14. Hi, I have an old Rado Diastar Quartz watch that belonged to my grandpa, but it doesn't work anymore. My dad tried having it repaired once and had a terrible experience with Rado. In the end they flat out said they couldn't repair it and gave it back. The design of the watch seems common to a number of old Rado watches, both automatic and quartz. I can't seem to find a second hand quartz movement but found automatic movements for the same design. Would it be possible to replace the quartz movement with and automatic? I'll add some pictures of my quartz movement and the automatic(ETA2789). Thanks in advance for any advice!
  15. hello everyone please, you know, to me what movement is it? the movement has no digitatures, no loggers, you could help me! the rocker bridge is lower than the movement because?
  16. Hi, Can anyone help? I have a watch case that will exactly fit an ETA7751 movement but I cannot source or afford the movement. So I am on the lookout for an equivalent movement but am new to this. Can anyone advise which I should go for? Thanks.
  17. Hi, Can anyone point me in the right direction to where I can economically buy a Valjoux ETA 7751 movement, dial, hands, day/date and moon phase dials? I am based in the U.K.
  18. Hi all! After introducing myself I started out with demounting the AS1900 movement. I now came to a point to assemble a watch by my own. I bought the Miyota 8215 series movement (pictures in attachment). I really want to make a dress watch. Therefore i'm searching for a fitting case with dial and hands. My question is now, before I purchase all products, does the 8215 movement fit with the following case and dial? Movement is the image in the attachment: (already purchased) Case: http://www.wenping1970.com/40mm-watch-case-sapphire-glass-fit-dg2813-3804-eta-2836-miyota-82-seriesp488_p1527.html Dial: http://www.wenping1970.com/debert-345mm-white-dial-fit-miyota-82-seriesmingzhu-dg2813-movement-mens-watch_p1533.html Hands: http://www.wenping1970.com/debert-watch-hands-fit-eta-2836dg2813-3804miyota-82-series-movement-mens-watch_p1531.html If you have any other suggestions for buying the case/dial/hands for this specific movement, I really would love to hear about it. Have a nice weekend! Kind regards, Jorick
  19. I am looking for a stem/crown for a Miyota quartz movement (see attached). Why does Miyota seldom write the movement's part number on the movement? Can anyone help? It goes inside a cheap Nelsonic LAX 766 watch.
  20. Hi All! A friend has trusted me (ME!) with an old Bulla watch that is a non-runner. The main problem was quickly apparent, broken balance pivot, and I'm not yet sure if there's anything else wrong, but the train seems intact and spinning. My immediate difficulty with obtaining a replacement balance or balance staff is that I can find no identifying marks anywhere on the (not yet disassembled) movement. It looks like some AS movements that I've seen on Bid-Fun but I'm not sure. The only further assistance I can give is that the dial says that it is a 15 jewel movement. Here's the movement and a photo of the pivot. Can anyone identify it please? It might end up as my first full disassembly and (attempted) rebuild! Thanks!
  21. I received a vintage watch attached for a service. The movement is sitting loosely inside the case. I am looking for advice on how to fix the movement in the case so that it doesn't move around. Thanks guys, Ferdinand
  22. I am looking to practice overhauling ETA2824. I am just wondering where could I source 2824 movement or its equivalent clone for practice? Thanks Ferdinand
  23. Hello. I need some help with repairing my Armani AR4633. I've watched some vids on YouTube but none of them resemble the movement of this particular watch. My first problem is removing the winder. I cannot see anything which looks like it will release the winder and I don't want to poke around inside it any more for fear of creating any damage. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.
  24. I am struggling to find a way to remove the movement on this large Ingersoll watch from its case. Cannot seem to find any screws that pin the movement to the case. Tried to remove the steel spacer, it is un-movable even with pliers. Does it mean that that I have to come from the glass? If through the glass, do I pry on the small opening on the bezel (see the second picture attached)? Appreciate any helps. Thanks.
