Rolex precision 6466 stop when crown screw down


Hello guys

Why my rolex precision 6466 stops when crown screw down..

But it runs again when crown not screw down or in manual wind position?

It stops when the crown enter too deep inside the movement..

Personally, I've never owned a Rolex but I've experienced this same issue with Seiko divers. There is a rubber seal in the base of the crown and due to age and use, it can become brittle and break, causing it to fall out of the crown in small bits. When this happens, the space previously occupied by the rubber gasket allows the crown to seat further into the watch, thereby interfering with the normal operation. 

You will likely need to remove the stem and crown, install a new crown gasket or o-ring, whichever is required, and all should return to normal. I might add that if the gasket has perished, likely your watch is due or even overdue for a full service.

      My Rolex Submariner cal. 3135 won't hack from time to time when I pull out the crown. Is it some kind of lubrication or mechanical issue, is it easily fixable without tearing the whole movement apart?

      Hello. Dear watchmakers.
      I have a very old timepiece from Rolex that I am about to work on..
      From googling, I found out that this is called "trench watch" that might had been used during WWI or any other war in that era ( 1910~1920)
      However, I could not figure out the reference no. of the movement. All I know about the movement is that it is 29mm in diameter and has 15 jewels.
      I am actually looking for a replacement movement for this watch since the mainspring must be replaced due to damage.
      Plus, I am also looking for the rachet wheel with "Rolex" engraved to replace the existing one.
      I have found similar movements on the web(the third photo added)  but click part was not the same.
      I wonder if the one with different type of click would have parts that are replaceable.
      To sum up, my questions are
      1) the reference of the movement.
      2) how I can get parts or the whole movement for replacement
      3) does a movement with different click type would be suitable for replacement.
      Thanks and  I wish you a great day.

    • Thanks @nickelsilver! The illustration is extremely appreciated! I'll try this. What tool can/should I use to push on the HS (I've never touched a HS before)? Do I push the spring little by little until it looks good or do I use some other technique? I suppose I can leave the balance in the watch (mainspring wound down of course), no? Again, thanks!
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum. There are a few members on here who are into Timex watches I'm sure one of them will be able to help you.
    • Thanks for looking and sharing these. Sadly I've not been able to find the 3330 manual anywhere. I guess as it's quite a new movement Omega guard it very closely. I thought the new EU rules meant they had to share manuals and parts now.
    • When I pulled this little omega 484 down I noticed that the escape wheel was turning under duress so I thought I would show how I polish these tiny pivots on the escape wheel and pallet folk before I ultrasonically clean them. It gets a nice shine, I can do my hair in the reflection. Using a very fine pin polisher
