  1. Hello All, I am new to this forum and relatively new to repairing watches (so please don't bite!). I have repaired a couple of cheap watches before and both have worked out fine so decided to try my hand on Benrus I have had for a couple of year and am quite fond of. All was going well and then I had a pet related incident whilst opening up the mainspring barrel. By the time I had found the barrel (cap, arbour and mainspring conveniently ended up in my lap) it had been damaged and some of the teeth destroyed. I have tried to identify the movement in order to figure out what part to try and find (picture attached, apologies for the poor quality) but really struggling as it doesn't look like any other Benrus movement I have seen anywhere online. The watch has 1974 on the back (looks like a "length of service" gift awarded to someone by the inscription). I bought it from ebay and the seller doesn't know anything more about it. If more picture of any more of the parts would be useful please let me know. I'm just hoping that someone will be able to help. Thank you in advance. G
  2. I picked the up the 1945 Bulova Cadet as a non-worker on eBay, then I received a parts lot that had a Westfield case and dial. Of course, I had to get a 1940 Westfield Trojan cousin movement for it. Unfortunately, I didn't notice til this morning that the replacement Westfield had a curved dial whereas my case had a flat dial and it doesn't fit. Oh well, guess I'll have to buy more watches.
  3. Hi guys! I have a watch that uses a Ronda 751 quartz movement (see pic). For those unfamiliar, it’s a small tonneau shaped movement - usually a woman’s size (5½ x 6¾ linge and 2.5mm thick) with the following specs: Linge Size: 5½ x 6¾, 2.50mm thick Hand Size: 120/70 Stem: 401-1237 Cell/Battery/Power Source: 379 Tap Size: 10 I’d like to replace it with a mechanical movement: I started off looking for a direct drop in replacement but it’s proved very difficult. I haven’t found any modern movements with the same dimensions (although to be fair I haven’t had much luck finding a comprehensive listing of modern movements available). As far as the vintage movements go, (from here: http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk) the ETA 2480 (http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&ETA_2482) is a good example of the vast majority of what’s available— the right dimensions but 1mm too thick. And for a 2.5mm movement, 1mm is a ton. The Tissot 530 (http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&Tissot_530), and Enicar 672/678 (http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&Enicar_672) are the 2 that seem closest but they are still a half mil too thick. And worse, even if it fits, where would I even begin looking for one? Does anyone one have any knowledge of a movement that would work or one I could modify a bit to fit? Or any idea the best place to look?? Thanks in advance for the help and I love the forum!!
  4. Can anyone tell me what these cards are? They are from a watchmakers shop. I bought them just as a record of an era when physical files had to be kept. Thank you in advance
  5. Can someone tell me the millimeter distance between the two registers on a Venus 175 movement? I am trying to find out if my movement will fit a Venus 175 dial.
  6. I need assistance, please! I have a Pierre Cardin dress watch without a battery/cell and has no numerical identification anywhere in, or on the case. The only ID type info is as follows: it says "Jour" on the inside of the case-back. On the movement is says "Le Jour" with no other wording or numbering. The questions are: What battery/cell would this movement use? and, What movement might this be? Replacement movement? I have tried to research this to no avail. Then, can anyone suggest a replacement movement for a Timex Electric M cell; once again no case numbers. However, the inside of the case-back has "QTO" factory marking stamp. Additionally, on the movement itself it has a "04" at approximately the 7 position and a "126" at approximately the 2 position. Any help is greatly appreciated.Thanks
  7. Came across this whilst trawling for info. Seem to have a large selection of decent watch cases,movements etc. Not used but may be helpful to others searching for that obscure item. In Italian so you may need a translator app. http://gioielliboccacci.it/gioielli_boccacci_lista_ricambi_di_orologeria.htm
