Hello Guys, My name is Sidney. I am from the US. I am new to the hobby of watch repair. I am stuck on how to remove the mechanism out of watch case. It looks like the watch lens has to be removed first before the watch mechanism can be removed. I have never used a lens press before and I’m afraid of breaking the lens if done wrong. There is a lip around the back of the watch that stops the mechanism from coming out that way. any advice on how to remove it?
Hi, I'm a newby, so please be gentle! I have an early Accutron into which I need to fit a new crystal. I have a NOS crystal. I understand the principle of fitting a tension ring crystal with a press, but need to make a die to fit the crystal. Does anyone know (or can estimate) the optimum internal angle of the top die please? Secondly, on a slightly different subject, I have seen on this site discussions about recessed crystals and non-recessed crystal, but from what has been said I still don't really understand the difference. Could someone enlighten me further please? Thanks in anticipation. pcuk
