Hi all I am in need of a replacement for my watch. It's about the crown.
Could someone please tell me where I can get it or buy it online?
From already thank you very much
Hola a todos
Estoy necesitando un repuesto para mi reloj.
Se trata de la corona.
Alguien podría por favor decirme donde la puedo conseguir o comprar online?
Desde ya muchas gracias
I have been failing to open this Wittnauer watch using prying tools. Does it need special tools or techniques to open it?
I'm a fellow watch enthusiast from the North-East of England. I hope everyone is keeping well.
I recently bought myself a cheap watch repair kit, dusted off the old watch storage box and started to giving my watches the attention they required, it's been going quite well so far but do need some guidance with the correct steps of putting the workings and the case back on for my Accurist GMT Grand Complication, hopefully I will do a separate post on this with pics.
Anyway hope everyone is having a decent Friday night.
I've made up my mind to build a watch around the the ETA 2804-2 (28.800/Manual wind/Date complication). It's diameter is identical to the ETA 2824-2 (25.60 mm), but the height of the 2804-2 is just 3.35 mm, that is 1.25 mm less than the 2824-2. I've been looking around but it seems very difficult (impossible?) to find watch cases designed for the ETA 2804-2, but there are plenty of cases to choose from for the 2824-2. So, I have two questions...
1. Where can I find watch cases designed for the ETA 2804-2, and if that isn't possible...?
2. Would a case designed for the 2824-2 work with the 2804-2? My guess is that it would, but that the case back would be unnecessarily thick?
I'm working towards a project of making watches from scratch, and as part of that I'm considering buying a milling machine. Given the precision levels needed for both milling and boring, I'm considering a rather costly option, the Wabeco F1200. It has a 0.01mm tolerance for milling and 0.03mm for boring.
My question: would you have an opinion or experience with the suitability of such a mill? Or would you have alternative suggestions for me?

The outer watch case back looks as though it may have had some markings but they are long since worn away. However, the inside of the watch case back has a few markings which look hand inscribed rather than stamped. They are: addio ABABA N94P8/43 189168 SJN + JHN Do these mean anything to anyone?
Thank you nicklesilver and Nucejoe. I'll give those suggestions a try. I experienced parts flying out of the cheap ($4), stiff set of tweezers I started with. These tweezers encourage a more delicate touch.
Visual comparison of pivot's OD on new and old arbours is near impossible, I guess they are the same or about the same, since the new pivot did fit into the jewel, if the fork doesn't move freely something is wrong there. common causes are; craked jewel, thick or bent pivots, coned pivot fitted into flat jewels.
