      Hello,
      I have a lovely antique cylinder escapement pocket watch that I've serviced and got running beautifully but now I have a problem with the minute hand falling off. I think it's known as a pin hole fitting hand. On measuring the hand it shows approx. 0.40mm, and then on measuring the arbor diameter with the vernier guage, it's also 0.40mm so it's very near but won't even grip when mounted. Photos provided of the job.
      Does anybody have a technique I can use to get the hand to fit?

      Got a ladies Omega De Ville in an auction lot today. My limit for repairs to this point has been installing batteries. The watch runs but runs several hours fast. 
      I know there are a few reasons it could be running fast. I don't have a degausser but suspect it could be magnetized. 
      What are some other things I should consider or questions I should ask if I take it in for repair?
      Also, do you know if there was originally a plastic retaining ring to secure the movement in the case? There was none when I opened the back.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello!
      Not sure if this is the right place for my question since I do not intend to do the repair myself. However I am wondering if anyone knows an approximate price of a tachymeter for the Omega 3520.50 day-date (tripple date).
      If anyone has any idea what a insert and the "repair" would cost at a watch shop, please let me know.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hello. 
      I am about to work on a Omega ladies automatic watch.
      I found out that the axis of the rotor is out of place and shakes up and down.
      What could be done in this situation?
      Thanks!

    • Hi I recently bought this Vostok watch from a collector.  Does anyone have any literature/history about this watch model , # of jewels, movement type or any other piece of information ? Thanks in advance
    • So yes, as I remember it that lever is for placing the hands on the watch, and this has been discussed here before. Others here will know exactly what it is called, it just escapes me. At the moment, naturally.
    • Hello, I wil add a photo to this reply. The lever is on front rim of movement I think about 3 oclock under dial plate. My watch together working so I don't want to remove dial to get better picture. It took be hours to get hands on and not hitting each other. I used my phone to take a picture every 5 seconds while I worked on watch, the picture I am adding to this reply is one on them. Looking at picture about 1/2 inch to left of my thumb there is a silver lever on rim held by one screw. The lever is connected to keyless yoke by linkage. When lever end (at edge of movement) is down (level end can be moved about .25 inch on rim) the crown works for setting time. When lever is up the time cannot be change using crown. Once movement is in case, the lever is held in place by case. Again, watch in case with lever up time cannot be changed using crown. The advertisement for watch says " self-locking setting device ". The lever pivots on single screw holding it in place.
    • it's unfortunate that something that can look so pretty in a picture can turn out very poor. On the other hand it's an opportunity to make something much nicer. Like for instance when I'm doing this I'm looking at my computer and the desk I made so it fit the space that I had it met my requirements because I couldn't find anything that was suitable for a computer desk for me. As much as I like my watch bench I would really like modifications like it would be nice to have drawers on both sides of the bench. The entire left-hand side is open and basically it's wasted space. when you're starting out it seems like the bench is a vast open space but it's amazing how fast it gets filled up and then you run out of space.
