Strange I have two Fema clock movements to repair, both with broken mainsprings and one with a broken click spring, can you please tell me, are the click springs readily available???has anyone bought one, if so where from?
Photo attached of good click spring, this is the type that I need..
Hope you are all well..
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
Today, after about six weeks of intermittent efforts, I finally got the incabloc spring fit into the setting. Good thing too as it was the next to last of this size in my parts stock. But, you must defeat the demon, you cannot give up.
I have five of these quartz date watches, and three cases (two for 20mm bands, one for 18mm), they are Called FORTIS CONTAINER SYSTEM , because you can use different watch bodies in the steel case (container) attached to the wrist band.
All of them have Water Resistance 50 Meters, so if you open them without the proper tools and expertise, you might damage their water tightness or worse.
If you don't use it for a longer time, you can pull the crown out, as when you set the time, that way the watch is stopped, and the battery is not drained. I did that with three of them over ten years.
The FORTIS Product IDs: 560.10.132 and 560.20.132 .
That's exactly the same as my Trafalgar, (see top of page) which has a bfg 866 1 jewel movement, really nice watch. Mines the most recent service and keeps time surprisingly well for the movement type.
Hello, how does this setup work so far. I have just ordered the parts I hope i will have the parts to try in a month or two. Thank you... this was a great thread.
P.S. i have not as yet ordered the Weishi microphone.
