Tudor crown help


Question

Hi all you tinkers out there . Long time since i was here . Have been busy and not feeling to good. Been a little low. I need your help with a Tudor oysterquartz crown . It has a Rolex style crown . The tube is damaged and someone has been trying to fix it by grinding of a 6 sided part from an other crown or a larger crown. I saw repair kits for Rolex crowns on Ebay. Will they work for a Tudor crown also? It's a pretty small crown at around 5,3 mm . Crown hat is okay. I have 2 crowns . The owner bought a bad crown from Ebay. It was broken when it arrived.

Hi Rogart. Good to see you posting here again. Sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling great. The current global circumstances don’t help, but I am optimistic that things are going to get better quite soon!

 

I don’t fully understand your question. Is it the “pendant tube” which is faulty? Is this a screw-down crown?

Rolex and Tudor shared crowns up until the mid 70’s or so; then Tudor ones got the shield in place of the coronet. 

A Rolex, or aftermarket, 5030 tube should work. Wholesale outlet 990 on eBay sells decent ones cheaply. 

Do you have the tools to remove and install the tube?

Hi Rogar, good to see you back posting again, though I saw a post of yours about 3 weeks ago, am pretty sure I did PM you just to say. 

Sorry don't have a signed genuine crown, might have a Swiss crown to fit. 

Best wishes.

Hi Guys 

Thanks i will have a look there. Have some pictures here. Have no tool but sure can borrow or i buy a horotec or something cheaper. The tube is 1,8 mm in diameter for the crown that is 5,3 mm . Inside is a 963.... movement. I need the tube and the 6 sided part inside that screws to the stem. The spring is propably ok . But maybe follows with the repair kit . I think the crown tube could work. It has good threads.

    • this is one of the interesting things with wristwatches versus pocket watches. Pocket watch it's usually easy to get the back off see the movement. A lot of wristwatches now have nice windows so you can see the movement. But most wristwatches people have zero idea what powers the hand's. Even for Bell and Ross they have their movement number hinting that somehow they've enhanced the movement but they don't really go into. So perhaps you're right on the other hand if you told somebody that you're going to fix their several thousand dollar watch and put in a $20 Chinese equivalent would they go for it? Because after all you can't see the movements?   the tech sheet that I posted above is interesting. There are seven different hand fitting heights that have a center tube of 2.5 mm. If you want the something extremely thick then it becomes 3.5 mm. But I'm guessing it's going to be in the thinner category. So it looks like you should bill a swap all the components except. The second pinion is inside the watch which means anyone that has the skill to get that far into the watch and swap that should bill the service the watch. So basically that isn't going to happen. What's really puzzling is nowhere in the tech sheet doesn't explain how you're supposed to tell which movement you have. Usually there's a letter code or a number code or a height code or something to indicate which movement you have and it does not explain at all other than? They do refer to the height with the numbers one through 12 so maybe that's on the movement someplace.
    • All good traditional practice.  However in such cases I take some coordinates with a microscope, make a CAD drawing and have the part laser cut.  Frank
