  1. Hello Everyone. I need some help with repairing my Emporio Armani ar-1922. I've watched some videos on YouTube but none of them resemble the movement of this particular watch. My first problem is removing the stem/crown. I cannot see anything which looks like it will release the stem 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.
  2. Hmmm, kind of! But........ It shows great potential as a hobbyist alternative, with some tweaking. After a back and forth with @Andyhull on another thread it got me to thinking perhaps it's not as useless as my initial annoyance led me to think, (I broke a mainspring trying it but to be fair the spring had been previously abused and the tool wasn't ideally sized allowing the coils to jump and tangle). I had a bit of a resize with sanding stick and scalpel and tried again and it's certainly got promise, I need to tweak the file to suit specific barrels but it's a simple quick 3 part print using barely any filament. Obviously not anywhere near as good as the proper bergeon winder but definitely cheaper for the hobbyist, (even if you haven't already got a printer and had to buy one first). Here's a video of it if anyone is interested, comments and ideas are welcome.
  3. Is it possible to purchase parts for a Citizen 8228A (Miyota) movement. I have a rather beat up old example, which is missing the tip of one of the winder gears. I suspect the answer is going to be, no, you would need to find the parts from another damaged example. I did look on Cousins, but the part I need is not listed. Initially I suspected the only issue with it was the balance, and spent a little time tickling the hairspring back into shape, only to then figure out that while the winder made the right noises, it wasn't actually driving the mainspring, due to the missing pinion tip.
  4. In order to clean the strap of my wife's Rotary watch I need to remove the winder. I've located what I think is the area that I need to work on (see attached pics). There is an arrow pointing to a lever that moves when the winder mechanism is pulled out. There is also a post with a dimple (there's probably a better technical term!) between this and the winder. Should I be able to remove the winder by 1) moving the lever (and from which position) ... or 2) pressing on the post with the dimple? Any help gratefully received before I damage a watch of sentimental value. Many thanks Tim
  5. My engagement watch was a Briel, which turns out to have a 0S60 Miyota movement. I paid goldsmiths to replace the battery, boy what a mistake. When I collected it the crown came off in my hand. Goldsmith said they can't repair!!! They paid me £250. So this is when I did some research and took the back off the watch. I believe the stem is still in the watch. But I think I can repair by replacing the stem and crown. I still have the crown. Could some one advise what stem I need and how can I attach the crown, doesn't appear to have a thread but I think it should have. I can get more photos if needed. Many thanks
  6. Hello everyone, I am looking to purchase a mainspring winder. What sort of things should I look out for when searching for one? I am going to be working on watches primarily (as a hobby). Is it possible to purchase one that will cover all watches or are there different sizes for different watches? Does anyone have any recommendations as to what they have purchased? Thanks In Advance
  7. I just purchased a Waltham Selfwinding watch marked B-251K on the inside of the case back. First of all, it is marked 25 Jewel on the face and 17 Jewel on the rotor, which I found odd but its nothing I haven't seen before, and that's where the trouble started. The watch runs, and runs very well. However, the rotor is wobbly and loose that it contacts the balance wheel at times in its travel. The rotor does not attach with a screw, but rather with a sort of sliding clip. I am no watch repairman, more of a tinkerer who has opened and successfully repaired and maintained a watch or two in my life. I'm beginning to think this might be the wrong rotor, but it appears to be a perfect match, even drops in perfectly, but it is so loose it practically falls out. Ideas anyone?

  9. I just got a new Chinese movement (TY2867), and when I push the winder in, the movement won't start. I've manually wind it a few times, pull the winder out and push it back in. What could be the issue? Thanks
