Question

I've worked on a few.  They go together just like they came apart.  Oiling:  Light oil on all wheels except center wheel.  No oil on pallet pivots, D5 on the center wheel pivots and the barrel arbor.

 

As for assembly, start from a known point (say the escape wheel) and puzzled your way towards completion.  Its not too hard to figure out the wheel placement.

Hi,

its a standard ladies elgin movement, no real service sheet as such, just an interchangable parts list if needed. you can pick them up pretty cheaply off fleabay if you need parts.

Just curious; what is or what is meant by "fleabay"? I Googled it and found https://fleabay.net/ but under the category "Jewelry & Watches" I only found three items; a pair of earrings, a bracelet, and a woman's watch. Perhaps it is a synonym for shopping used stuff online!? Thanks!

Thanks for the "Haha" @jdm and glad I could entertain you, but if you could enlighten me I'd appreciate it even more!

Sorry, I can't. I have sworn to an inner circle of initiated to never revel the secret magic place where one can get any watch part. Pretty much like unobtanium, it can be mentioned, but never achieved :biggrin:.

Thanks, I understand, no worries!

The expressions "you can pick them up pretty cheaply off fleabay" in my ears sounded like it possibly could be a reference to a specific site like eBay, so that's why I wanted to ask about it. I now understand that it was simply a reference to flea markets on the Internet in general. English isn't my native language so that may have contributed to my confusion. As a bonus, your bumptious contributions to the WRT culture was sort of funny (but not that funny).

"fleabay"

I'm guessing Australian slang for eBay. Then the eBay is the place where you can pick up almost everything sooner or later if you're patient and know how to search for things or you just stumble across it by accident. A lot of times unfortunately the sellers sell things in assortments and won't describe, Or don't describe what they're selling. Sometimes that's outstanding for the buyer but it's a pain in the ass If you're looking for scrap movements and they don't have a description.

    • I opened up this Timex Expedition T42351 to remove a tiny loose metal sliver from the dial. This watch actually has 2 stems to remove. One of those is a monster. I swear I felt like I was pulling a parasitic worm from a wood boring beetle as I slowly worked the main stem out of the movement.  But it came out, I dropped the movement out of the case, removed the metal sliver - which looks like some kind of tiny flat spring - cleaned out the dust particles and proceeded to re-assemble the watch.  Everything went fine until I attempted to slide the main stem back in; it went about halfway and then stopped. With some very careful manipulation I was able to ease it in a little more, but then it refused to go any further. I did notice there's a very loose 2-pronged spring near the entry hole and showed that to a watchmaker friend yesterday who told me that it's broken. He wouldn't touch it and advised me to just go get another watch. But I'm pretty sure there must be a way to get the stem back into the movement and regain the functionality the watch had before I opened it up. Here are pics of the watch, the loose sliver, and the stem with the movement. If anymore is familiar with anything like this, I'd love to hear your opinion. Thanks!  
    • this is watch repair anything is possible? This means that if you look on the catalog  pages of the attached PDF you may find the exact size jewel you're looking for. But is also the possibility of the various watch companies using their own jewels and the outside diameters might not correspond to the jewel sizes found on the catalog page. 5006 A_a_F Seitz jewels.pdf
    • That's great thanks. I think i'll give the chinese one a go. A question regarding changing jewels. Are you saying if i didn't have a replacement i would not find the exact sized jewel to fit so i would have to ream out the hole and fit one with a larger diameter? The inside measurement would always have to be the same though, in this case for the centre wheel to pass through.
    • Hi I am trying top locate hands for a omega cal 565  case num 166.025 Cousins don't have them, not omega anyway. I got the hand sizes from ranfft 1.50mm 0.80mm 0.18mm So i presume they are the hole size? So went on unbranded parts in cousins looking for hands. I can get the hour and the minute hand but the seconds hand fits onto a pin and secures the hour and minutes hands. How do i know what second hand i need? The hole which is 0.18 i understand but then it has to be wide enough on the outer side to secure minute hand? Sorry if i have not explained this properly but i'm doing me best. I've included some pics but i only have a phone cam so that's the best i can do with that. I also know the pics show the hole is dirty and uncleaned but i want to see if i can get this second hand sorted before i strip it and clean it. Any help advice appreciated. cheers gary  
    • The cap stones are the same both sides. I never seen such defects on the many I worked on. In some way it seems to me that is the domed side up, but it shouldn't. Before blaming the train check well the escapement, balance pivots, end-shake, hairsping shape, that there is no rubbing, etc.
