      Early 60's Elgin 10K Shockmaster. I suppose one of their attempts at water proofing a watch (see the crystal and gasket in the second picture). The question is how to get the crown off (Its wobbly when pulled out to the set position and I am certain it contains a gasket) so I can remove the movement? Dis-assemble the keyless works in place so I can grab the stem and unscrew the crown?? Thanks.

      Ideas on where to find a suitable assortment of studs?  Cousins has round and square, but Elgin uses a wedge shaped stud.  File my own?

      Thanks,

      Does anyone have a source for the two - ended shock springs for a 7s26 movement.  My is in the Netherlands.  Not the three lobed DiaShock , but the cheaper two-ended.  I cannot locate them on Cousins or Ofrei.  Sieko "hold spring" P# 0015703

      Thanks,

    • Today this package from sweeden came in mail, containing 11blacd escapement wheel, donor  @rogart63 . Following fourteen years of in to do box  I will hopefuly  bring my bulova snorkel back to life and  soon, I will post a picture of it on watch of today thread. Thank you Rogart63 for this gift, very precious to me. In appreciation of your generosity and in your name, I make sure to pass on three winding stems to the novices and three balance staffs to experienced learners.  I have no problem shipping small parts.              
    • Well on the plus side, its a whole lot more healthy than a deep fried mars bar.
    • Ran out of Cheerios
    • Ahh the healthy option, two of your five a day, orange juice and chocolate.  
    • A Sekonda Classique from the same junk pile lot as the Seiko 7N32 above. Not quite as attractive, arguably, but not bad for 1/7th of the £3.20 the whole lot cost (or to put it in context, less than the cost of a Mars bar). Other than very slight pitting on the clasp, and of course a flat battery, there was nothing wrong with it. A quick polish and a fresh button cell and it joins the club.
