Looking for parts for Bifora movement


Hello watchmakers!

Now I am working on a vintage bifora movement, Bifora Cal.812.

I have ruined the hairspring while trying to fix the position of it on the balance wheel to 

adjust the bit error. I am searching for the balance complete or just the hairspring on ebay and other 

suppliers but I haven't been lucky. May be I need other keywords for my search.

Could anyone help me find the part I need??

      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.

      WRT Members,
      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.
      Kind Regards,

      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?

      Hello watchmakers!
      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.

    • Well, look what I found... https://tarafinejewelry.com/14k-white-gold-girard-perregaux-ladies-estate
    • Do you have a watch collection? If so what have you got? Just got myself a half hunter Fusee to restore. It ticks but not for long.    
    • 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.
