  1. Looking for some help, my friend had an issue with his watch having water enter the movement. It has stopped working and I fear the movement could be fried. Just in case this worst case scenario plays out I was looking at new movements. The movement is an ETA (Tag) 955.112. I looked on CousinsUK and they say it is a discontinued movement. They only have the version without the seconds hand for sale. Does anyone know the correct movement to replace the ETA 955.112 with? I did see one site state that the ETA F06.111 was the replacement, but I'm not sure I trust the source enough to order one without checking here first. Also it looks like the crystal gasket may be to blame, can anyone point me in the right direction for a replacement? It is a Tag Kirium, but the part numbers have been worn off that case back. I guess this would also imply that the 955.114 could also replace the 955.112??
  2. Hey Gang, The turning ceramic Bezel from my tag heuer Aquaracer calibre 5 has come off. Could anyone advise what I would be looking at for a price wise for a replacement Bezel? Just want to get a feel before I take it in to the shop. Before and after photos below. Thanks, Tom
  3. I just bought a Tag Heuer Kirium 1112 and the bezel is extremely hard to turn. Any suggestions?
  4. A quick step-by-step tutorial on how to replace the battery on a TAG Heuer Aquaracer. This watch belongs to a good friend, and it is in need of a battery replacement. Step 1: Remove the screw on case back. The tools I am using are a three-pins Jaxa case opener and a case holder. At first, I try to open the case-back just with the watch mounted on the case holder. But the case-back is very tightly screwed on (this is a diver watch with 300m waterproof). In the end, I secure the the case holder on a mounted bench vice to free both of my hands to open the case-back. I also find that using a three-pins opener a lot better than a two-pins, especially for a diver watch. Step 2: Check the battery The quartz movement inside this Aquaracer is a Ronda 6004.B, which uses 373 Silver-Oxide battery (or SR916SW). When I receive the watch, the battery is not fully exhausted. The small-second hand jumps every four seconds (battery-saving mode), though still keeping time it shows that the battery is weak. With battery replacement jobs, I usually receive the watch with a fully exhausted battery. To ensure that the issue is not with the movement, I always test the old battery before replacing it. A quick test on this battery shows that the problem is with the battery. A new battery is around 1.5Volts. Step 3: Grease the seals Before I screw the caseback on, I grease the caseback seal using Seiko silicon greaser (S-916) that comes with an applicator and the crown seal with Seiko greaser (TSF-451). If the seal is no longer in good condition, it is advisable to replace it also. Tip: To grease the seal on the crown, you will need to first remove the stem (or watch winder). Below is an excellent video on how to remove a stem on just about any watch. Step 4: Waterproof test The next step is to waterproof test the watch. Note: I am still saving up to get myself a waterproof tester. Job's done!
