Anyone know a supplier that would have orient watch parts. In general orient doesn’t supply parts I guess and it’s been hard to find on eBay. I have an EM60 repair. The crystal was damaged and whatever damaged it burned through and burnt the inner bezel and I cannot find a bezel with the same markings. Any help would be awesome.
Hi folks, just discovered this site tonight.
I am mostly a newb, although I have experience with smallscale work from electronics.
I have recently gotten into watch building, not from scratch mind you, I buy the movements...
I recently came into a Luminox, with a Ronda 515 movement in it.
The movement runs slow with a brand new battery. I figured for $20 from Esslinger, the easiest fix for me at my level of skill was a new movement, rather than disassembly,clean,lube,re-assemble.
So, I bought the movement.
While trying to remove the crown from the stem, I learned the quality of the loctite/cyanoacrylate/whatever that Luminox uses to fix their crowns to their stems.
does anyone know where I can buy Luminox replacement crowns?
I have hopes that I can remove the stem fragment from the crown, but those hopes are quite small. I only have about .200 - .300 thousandths of the stem protruding from the crown.
Yes, next time, remove O-rings, then apply heat, THEN unscrew the crown.
Having problems uploading a photo of the crown.
ANY help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!!
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.
I knew that Ronda offers Swiss made movement and Swiss parts movements. Typically the gold colored movements are Swiss made and the silver are Swiss parts. Out of curiosity, I popped the back off and.... Ronda 515... Silver plates.... Swiss in spirit only, lol. Thanks again @yankeedog
Well my Florida brother. I hate to burst your bubble, BUT. Your pro diver may or may not have a swiss movement..most likely it is a ronda 515...which may or may not have come from Thailand. Ronda,a swiss company outsources there.some 515s are swiss,some are Thai. With invicta it is really the luck of the draw. I like your kirovskie idea. Just be aware that that watch is not shock protected..so you can NEVER drop it.A quick look at them online reveals a movement that I think is a poljot 2409 with without shock protection...these movements run well for a very long time. A have a few that came in cheapo sixties watches,that run as well or better than my cheapo swiss watches of the same era.
I just got this one and of course the crystal needs to be polished out, but the question is what battery did it take and how is it supposed to stay in place? Is there a battery holder missing? I can set a 39- negative down on it and press the back on carefully and it will run since the positive contacts the case, but surely that isn’t all there is to it. Has anyone else seen one like this? Steve
There is a clip in ring inside the back cover that may be part of the answer.
