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.
Just finished a vintage build with correct working seconds at the six position. Hard to find a good reissue so I made my own with a aftermarket case and a dial made by me from scratch. logo is also my logo. Looks very professional maybe I could get some opinions from you guys. I have 25 more dials with different designs from single sub seconds to 2 and 3 eye chronographs. Its hard to find the cases I want. I guess I will settle with aftermarket cases for now and modify them.
I have a 50's/60's era Waltham men's wristwatch that needs some help.
It's in amazing (as-new) condition, but while wearing the other day, it stopped - even though there should have been plenty of power in the mainspring.
Disassembling for investigation quickly revealed the trouble. The screw-head from the ratchet wheel screw had broken off and found its way in to the train wheels and locked everything up.
There appears to be no other damage - thankfully. But now I want to fix the movement. My preference would be to find a barrel arbor and screw - or better yet a complete going barrel assembly new with ratchet wheel screw.
I am search eBay now - but thought I'd check with you guys to see if anyone knew of a good source for such parts. I haven't found any yet.
NOTE: This movement is Swiss made, 7 jewels, marking on the base plate look like Unitas 1690/02
Any info/help is greatly appreciated.
I am about to work on a vintage citizen watch.
I removed the movement from the case but I am stuck on removing the automatic rotor..
It seems that my screwdrivers won't do the job..
Any advice would be helpful thank you.
I guess its the rarity value also. Roger doesn't make many watches 10 a year I think between him and his apprentice.
Still rather have a RS watch than a Rolex any day irrespective of price. I would like to know why Roger picked the Isle of Mann to manufacture his watches and not London.
Indeed. That's the one. They were an unlikely pair, I must say. For both of them I admire the fact that it's not just about keeping time, but keeping time with elegance. Having said that, I knew their watches would be expensive but had no idea just how expensive. Yikes! :-)
A friend of mine has this Omega watch which belonged to her aunt. On the back of the case is the engraving, "1947-1972 Presented to <aunt's name> by <company name>."
And also "14K gold." There's 2 small diamonds on the front.
The watch has been in a drawer for 10 years, but winds up and appears to work fine. Any ideas what the value on this might be? I'm guessing just sentimental value, but who knows.
