Had to get new winding stem to an Omega cal. 342 , beacuse not original crown.
Got an replacement from Ronda, but does not fit.
Tried to fit the stem yesterday, but Im not able to get in in right in the movment.
The original just go right in every time, but the new Ronda stem will not go properly in.
Are there anyone that have some ide why this not fit?
Can the notch in the stem where I have put red arrow have somthing todo with this??
Its slightly smaller on the Ronda stem... se photo
i wonder if anyone could offer some advice. I have an Omega seamaster 1345 quartz day date. Working well. However it seems the date is stuck (as shown in pictures) i know the push button at the 4 o clock position is meant to filter through the date? However when pushed in nothing seems to happen. As a result of this the watch works fine but only up untill 11pm it doesnt turn over to midnight and therefor change the day or date. Minute hand works perfectly but it seems i have to change the hour position every morning.
when i turn the crown, hour hand moves fune and after the 12 o clock position changes the day, but date does not moth along with it.
anyone know how i can resolve this safely without removing too many parts of the movement?
Good evening everyone. I am new to this forum and i can see we have some outstanding experts on the site.
brand new to watch repair and looking to get some advice. I purchased an Omega seamaster quarts 1342 watch (not currently working and not tested) as it was a bargain and understand that 329 is the equivalent of the original mercury battery used when the watch was manufactured?
I am hoping the battery change will mean it is functional but in the event it does not work, how easy/costly is it to repair. (I’ve heard parts can turn this bargain into a money pit)
would anyone in this community willing to have a go at fixing it after i try battery change?
paid service of course.
any help advice would be much appreciated
Got this into my bench, but I wonder how ta get the movment out?
I have taken of the glass, removed the stem, but when I trie to move the ring with grooves(red circles) the movment follows anti clock wice.
Is it so simple that I have to hold the movment tight while Im doing it?
I'd suggest cousinsUK.com (England). I live in Sweden myself and being a tiny country it's almost impossible to get any spare parts locally. So far Cousins has never failed and their customer service is just brilliant.
Good luck with your project!
Just got started with restoring my Tissot Seastar Chronograph, 40508-9X, ser# 2418468, mod 870 1277, vintage early 1950.
Need to replace the crystal and seal, maybe hour and min hands (not a must).
The dims of the crystal are: 28,55 OD X 27,0 ID X 3,5 high. Mat is plastic, the shape is domed. Uses an ID metal ring, which is OK.
The seal measures: 33,0 X 31,0 X 2,0
Can't find it in the US... Does anybody have those parts or where can I get them?
Great thought. To prevent any marks from a tool such as a metal screwdriver, I could fashion a plastic pixie stick or a piece of peg-wood to a flat end and give that a slight twist for control. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
