Emporio Armani fashion watch

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, hope everyone is well in these rather strange times we are living through at the moment.

Quick question, I’ve done some searching but to no avail as of yet, I’ve been asked to see if I can repair an emporio Armani gents watch model number AR1798.

Now straight off the bat I’m saying new movement and crystal and possibly hands, fingers crossed the dial is ok, if not it will have to be a donor watch to complete the repairs.

Anyway as I haven’t got the watch yet, I want to try and get a rough idea of price for parts, mainly the movement, so has anyone got any idea what cal. The movement is? Obviously a quartz. Hands, Crystal etc will have to wait as there’s no way of finding out these for now. 
cheers for any help, stay safe now.

Normally the modules in these are Japanese, around 5 euro. There are also fashion watches using ETA it would say Swiss made. Small seconds is not the most common, browsing Miyota and SII offering you might find it easily.

JDM is right usually Miyota 2030/ 2035  and @ under a tenner inc post  Cousins etc hold them, I have had Miyota IL12s and IL45s as well but again not costly.  If you are doing a straight swap dial and hands should fit ok    If its anthing else  post it an we will check.         heers

Cheers gents, yeah I was heading in the miyota direction myself, having looked through the cousins site for a suitable replacement. There was a post on here regarding the same watch but the Op done a one lost and leave sketch after his question was answered so I couldn’t message him direct to ask the same question.

As soon as I get it in for the repairs I’ll let you know if anything else crops up and also to give information to crystal size and what Cal. It actually is. 
thanks again

    • Is this the right tool? https://tinyurl.com/qsbp7ys Thank you
    • If you are all in the mood for a little bit of Soviet era horology, then I'd like to introduce today's 404 club fixer upper. A Raketa 2609.HA based Sekonda, complete with the obligatory USSR marking on the bottom of the dial.  The gold plated  case (stamped AU9) and the near indestructible Raketa movement make these little Sekondas rather pleasing and rewarding  pieces to resurrect.  I think it too enjoyed its well earned service and good scrub down, as it is now sitting at >270 degrees, beat error around 0.1ms and somewhere around +30 sec per day without me adjusting anything. It is still sporting the original high dome crystal, which took a good polish and save for a few tiny blemishes looks almost new One other great thing about these (I have a couple of similar examples) is the dial. It is both easily readable, and classically elegant at the same time. A station clock for the wrist. Maybe the 1970s weren't completely devoid of taste after all.  
    • I cleaned it by soaking in Home Depot naptha and pegging by hand, 2 rinses. Demagnetized the whole thing, as well. I'll dig back in with both suggestions and report back any findings. Enjoying the process.
    • also;  there several books on the internet on that subject.  good luck.  vin
    • Always hard so make a guess... Anyway, I think the problem is on the dial side, i.e. the dial train (cannon pinion, minute wheel, hour wheel, intermediate wheel). Could it be that the clutch wheel doesn't disengage properly from the intermediate wheel that drives the minute wheel when you set the time? If so the intermediate wheel may bind up the minute wheel making things slow down and then stop. Well, just guessing. Anyway, I'd check the dial train (motion works) and the keyless works. I think your idea of removing the cannon pinion to see if it solves the problem is a good idea. If it doesn't help you'll know for sure the problem is with the train of wheels or the escapement. Good luck and let us know of any progress or any new observations.
