Had to get new winding stem to an Omega cal. 342 , beacuse not original crown.
Got an replacement from Ronda, but does not fit.
Tried to fit the stem yesterday, but Im not able to get in in right in the movment.
The original just go right in every time, but the new Ronda stem will not go properly in.
Are there anyone that have some ide why this not fit?
Can the notch in the stem where I have put red arrow have somthing todo with this??
Its slightly smaller on the Ronda stem... se photo
i wonder if anyone could offer some advice. I have an Omega seamaster 1345 quartz day date. Working well. However it seems the date is stuck (as shown in pictures) i know the push button at the 4 o clock position is meant to filter through the date? However when pushed in nothing seems to happen. As a result of this the watch works fine but only up untill 11pm it doesnt turn over to midnight and therefor change the day or date. Minute hand works perfectly but it seems i have to change the hour position every morning.
when i turn the crown, hour hand moves fune and after the 12 o clock position changes the day, but date does not moth along with it.
anyone know how i can resolve this safely without removing too many parts of the movement?
Need some info on the balance staff for an E. Howard pocket watch movement, Series 7, Model 1912, 12s, 17j. I have one for which the staff is missing. Either want to purchase one or get the dimensions so I can make one. Are there any other staffs which are interchangeable with it? Thanks, Doug!
Good evening everyone. I am new to this forum and i can see we have some outstanding experts on the site.
brand new to watch repair and looking to get some advice. I purchased an Omega seamaster quarts 1342 watch (not currently working and not tested) as it was a bargain and understand that 329 is the equivalent of the original mercury battery used when the watch was manufactured?
I am hoping the battery change will mean it is functional but in the event it does not work, how easy/costly is it to repair. (I’ve heard parts can turn this bargain into a money pit)
would anyone in this community willing to have a go at fixing it after i try battery change?
paid service of course.
any help advice would be much appreciated
I was following this video to pop out the glass on my Geneva watch.
I wanted to pop out the glass to adjust the calendar frame. However, after popping out the glass, the automatic watch stopped working. Could it be possible that the pressure of air from the syringe damage something? I appreciate if anyone can suggest possible problems. Below is my watch.
Thank you in advance.
I found this site because I decided to revisit my old watch collection. I have watches from the 70’s that I wanted to try to repair myself. I am hoping you guys can help because I am very new at maintaining watches.
