Hi all, working on my 5106- xxxx, with 33 jewels, no less, and two things have come to puzzle me that I'm predicting someone here can resolve. One, I'm pretty sure the cap jewels under the tiny "C" spring are flat against the pivot and domed against the "C" spring. The reason I know this is my watch runs after cleaning, but reluctantly, so I suspect a jewel is in upside down and that domed face has removed any end shake and/or added preload. I did look carefully, and could see any, but those jewels are really tiny. Second question, is there a technique and/ or tool someone can recommend to remove these little blighters? I've used the tip of my tweezers so far and distorted one spring, and savaged another. There has to be a better way. The big tri-lobed spring for the balance is no problem, by the way. Suggestions?
I know this is a long shot but anyone know were i can get a glass/crystal for a omega cal 565 case number 166.026.
It don't need to be by omega just as long as it fits. I have tried measuring the size i need but i keep getting different sum.
used. is fine.
yer don't ask yer don't get
