First of all thank you both watchweasol and Nucejoe for your help. Especially for the provided tech manual.
I managed to get the battery out. As watchweasol supposed the battery and the contact are both corroded. Thats why I think putting a new battery in this movement is not necessary anymore. Please correct me if I´m wrong. I attached a picture.
Also I identified the movement. It´s a miyota 2105. Which may be a bit more difficoult for a first-timer to swap because of it´s day-date function. Anyway I am going to try my best.
Again thanks for the help. Cheers, Daniel
Hello Everyone currently working on a Tag Heuer Calibre 16 I picked up from an estate sale. The movement is a Selita SW-500 automatic very similar to the Valjoux 7750. Cant get the crown to pull out to position 3 to set time. It will wind properly in position 1 and change day and date when pulled to position 2 but will not pull out any further to set time to position 3 any thoughts ? Thank you.
I don't know if that's technically possible, but how many years have passed since the last service? What's the pattern on timegrapher?
These two factors could motivate giving a full service (which will increase the life of the mov't), instead of attempting partial repair, which is rarely advisable.

i believe Derbyshire 10mm collets are the same as Levin 10mm's, as I understand it Levin pretty much copied Derbyshire. Not sure if that helps as the Derbyshire collets afaik are less costly than the Levin's. There is also Pultra (Smart Brown). Pultra collets will fit a Levin but not vice versa, they're a little tight.
