So ive been wanting to build my own watch for a while after having worked on my own watches for quite some time. The only apprehension i have is how does one size a dial to fit a case. Lets say i have a miyota 8215 a 41 mm cade that fits that movement would a 31 mm dial fit that case?
I guess my question is how does one tell if a dial will fit a case. I understand all cases are different
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.
I cleaned this watch today 12/18/2017. Elgin 0 size 7 jewel manufactured in 1904, run quantity 2000. What fabulous craftsmen we had before us, truly amazing.
Had to solder hunting case front lid back on at the hinge. Remove metal spring for the lid prior to laser soldering.
Watch was in good condition and case is absolutely beautiful.
Overhaul, new white alloy mainspring, hunting case glass crystal, solder front lid back to case and new bow installed and properly tightened to take out the flop
Check out the 7 jewel on the timegrapher.
Can anyone help? I have a watch case that will exactly fit an ETA7751 movement but I cannot source or afford the movement. So I am on the lookout for an equivalent movement but am new to this. Can anyone advise which I should go for?
Hi the problem with rules they have to be policed and not every one obeys.
Quote "rules are for the guidence of wise men and the obeyed by fools " cant remenber who quoted it I am not sure wether it was Winston Churchill UK wartime Prime Minister.
Thanks @nickelsilver! The illustration is extremely appreciated!
I'll try this. What tool can/should I use to push on the HS (I've never touched a HS before)?
Do I push the spring little by little until it looks good or do I use some other technique?
I suppose I can leave the balance in the watch (mainspring wound down of course), no?
Thanks for looking and sharing these. Sadly I've not been able to find the 3330 manual anywhere. I guess as it's quite a new movement Omega guard it very closely. I thought the new EU rules meant they had to share manuals and parts now.
When I pulled this little omega 484 down I noticed that the escape wheel was turning under duress so I thought I would show how I polish these tiny pivots on the escape wheel and pallet folk before I ultrasonically clean them. It gets a nice shine, I can do my hair in the reflection. Using a very fine pin polisher
