Hi all,

 

complete noob here and just started my watch repairing/fixing journey. I have search the forum and online, but I’m struggling to find the information I need. I am currently working on fixing an old oris watch that was my grandads. Unfortunately for me the pinion on the third wheel went flying from my tweezers. I have had a good look, but it’s gone.

 

my question is, how do I know I’m ordering the correct size ? Any help would be really appreciated 

 

thank you

Hello and welcome to the forum. I don't want to appear unfriendly, but it's appreciated If you introduce yourself first, and then post in the correct section.

You need to identify the movement. There will likely be a number and a trademark symbol to be found somewhere, usually under the balance.

It would be nice for you to introduce yourself first, however to address your current issue you need to identify the caliber of the movement then you might be fortunate in finding a replacement in a material house such as Cousins.

You can't miss the Oris branding and caliber on barrel bridge of all in-house vintage movements. 

Oris later used Asian made movements which were branded for Oris.

A picture of the bridge layout helps identify the movement.

And Welcome to the forum.

    • Russia is member of the Universal Postal Union and as such their Post must accept pieces for any destination. International tariffs link https://www.pochta.ru/documents/10231/726549028/УУС+2021_.pdf/ Interstingly unlike hey do not group destinations by listing orcontinents but by distance - however measured.  Then any individual seller is free to decide where they do ship and where not. I suggest that you contact the seller and inquire, he may be just be unfamiliar with remote destinations prices. 
    • I don't get your point. If you make or maintain a measurement tool, of any kind, you need a reference for calibration or just validation. It can be more or less accurate but it has to be there, that's metrology 101. You can have all the atomic clocks and Network Time Protocol to disseminate time, the issue is how to bring that accuracy to a standalone device and know if it is reliable.  Otherwise one can get into watercolor painting or other interests that do not require that kind of approach at all. 
    • Material houses like cousins, eslinger, ofrei, julesborel do carry watch parts, though I doubt you can find a sign crown for this. Familiarize with  Dr ranfft's very popular database for good general information on most calibers, just google ETA 1260 ranfft. Good luck
    • You can use any crown of your liking and that matches the pendant tube. Since you haven't posted pictures of the case one can't tell how it should like.  Two piece stems are easily available, even on Ebay.    As answered sometime. In the past service manuals did not exist because the watchmaker was supposed to known his trade well enough.  Parts lists were issued to ease identification and ordering, very many including for the one you have can be downloaded from Cousins UK. 
    • Hello, I am new to watch repair and am looking for some guidance. After taking an online course and practicing on a knockoff ETA 6497 I've started looking at one of my Ebay finds. Currently I'm working on a Wyler Incaflex 1023H. I think it's from the 1950's after popping of the armored crystal I learned that it's an ETA 1260 movement inside. I am missing the crown and there is water damage and rust on the stem and movement body at the stem. That said the rest of the movement looks great and when I persuaded it to wind the movement fired right up! I think I've deciphered an old GS watch crystal cross reference chart properly and came up with either a 26.0mm ATC GS part # PA368 or a 26.06mm ATC GS part # PA368-10. What I haven't been able to find is much information on the missing crown and a replacement stem. the case is a single piece and the movement comes out through the front. Does anyone have experience with Wyler and ETA 1260 movements? Any advice on how to find the correct crown and stem? Is there a service manual available? Thank you.
