I think I will put this watch away, as I don't see anyway of replacing the bezel other than checking eBay in the hope of finding a "non runner" thank you all for your time and help.

Hi Johnnie ... sorry for not reacting sooner.
I'll send you a sketch with some more dimensions you could check and I'll ask a friend of mine if he could turn a custom bezel.
For free of course ... I've helped him on some watch repairs so if he can he'll be glad to do that.
Then we'll take care of the custom insert ... just for the challenge so still for free.

The gauge I have can't get into groove! Will need to buy something else.

Method.. Take two pieces of material that do fit in the groove and are deeper than the groove (two pieces of wire or plastic, or brass bar for example), place them in the groove ensuring they touch the bottom. Measure across the groove, including the two pieces of material, call that "A". Measure the width of the two pieces of material, call that "B". Subtract "B" from "A", and you have the width (diameter) of the bottom of the groove.

Hi, sorry I haven't posted the measurements as yet. I am in London at present and the watch in question is in Cambridge ! Will get on the case next week, thanking you for your patience. :)

Hi Johnnie ... hope you're OK as we're still waiting for the dimensions.

I have re-read all the topic and the only dimensions we need are A, B, C and  D on my sketch.

The depth on the groove is not really important as only the spring will go inside.

At the moment I have a friend building a custom S-Steel rotating bezel for one of my builds, almost the same you need apart the specific dimensions and the fact that on mine the spring goes in from the underside (no insert on my bezel) and on yours it should go from the upperside (it will be hidden under the bezel insert).

As soon as I receive it I'll post some pics here and explain how it's been made.

    • If the clock has a lack of oil say the platform, you will find it will not preform, as it should do no matter what you do. It is such a delicate and vital part it has to be in tiptop condition for it to work correctly, 
    • Caliber is generally engraved next to the ballance wheel.
    • You said it gains about a minute every 24 hours, I see the beat adjustment lever (the one that is bent downward over the back plate) is pushed to one side, this lever will advance or retract the beat therefore speeding the clock up or slowing it down. Also check to see if the balance spring is free in the slot of this lever if not it may be putting too much tension on the spring. Just so you know, the closer the slot end of the lever is to the end of the spring (where the taper pin holds it) the slower the clock will run.
    • It's very difficult to provide help without pictures. From the information you've provided, I can tell you that Omega pocket watch with movement number 5,694,216 would have been made between 1916 and 1923. The 15 jewels and 2 adjustments would align with these dates as well. I do not know what "Fortune" or the other number mean. Here is a picture of a watch made in the same time period...does your movement look like this?
    • Hi Andy,  The link introduces/defines Thermodynamic which is the study of heat energy conversion to work and vice versa. It is about transformation of energy. One form of energy (heat) transforming into another form ( work) and not concerned with transfer of heat, from hot to cold. Understanding the nature of heat and the mechanism heat transfers from hot source to cold, is a key len33 is prepared to use. His question shows him ready to absorb the concept. Regards joe
