Hello I had a chance to acquire to two watch movement+dial sets which are from JLC and AP
However, I am having trouble finding cases to fit these.
Could anyone help me find cases that would fit these movements?
Non genuine cases are OK.
Now I am working on a vintage bifora movement, Bifora Cal.812.
I have ruined the hairspring while trying to fix the position of it on the balance wheel to
adjust the bit error. I am searching for the balance complete or just the hairspring on ebay and other
suppliers but I haven't been lucky. May be I need other keywords for my search.
Could anyone help me find the part I need??
I am working on this vintage A.Schild movement and a jewel on the wheel bridge.
It is a jewel for the 3rd wheel but is cracked so needs replacement.
I measured the outer and inner diameter and they are 1.2mm and 0.17mm respectively.
Could any one help me find the replacement for this jewel??
I am always grateful for your help.
Hello. Dear watchmakers.
I have a very old timepiece from Rolex that I am about to work on..
From googling, I found out that this is called "trench watch" that might had been used during WWI or any other war in that era ( 1910~1920)
However, I could not figure out the reference no. of the movement. All I know about the movement is that it is 29mm in diameter and has 15 jewels.
I am actually looking for a replacement movement for this watch since the mainspring must be replaced due to damage.
Plus, I am also looking for the rachet wheel with "Rolex" engraved to replace the existing one.
I have found similar movements on the web(the third photo added) but click part was not the same.
I wonder if the one with different type of click would have parts that are replaceable.
To sum up, my questions are
1) the reference of the movement.
2) how I can get parts or the whole movement for replacement
3) does a movement with different click type would be suitable for replacement.
Thanks and I wish you a great day.
Have adjusted it like that. Also removed the jumper altogether to see if the disc would move more, but it didn't.
I measured the diameter of the peg on the driving wheel and it's 0.3mm, is this the correct size?, to me the peg looks a little bit smaller then the other once I see pictured here.
