Rolex 1530 balance sock part number?


Recommended Posts

Hey playing around with a 1530 and the balance has too much shake. I noticed that the setting for the entire shock absorber jewel is not flush with the mainplate and looks like it’s been tapped on before. The jewel cap spring is also a little deformed but seems to function.  I was going to just replace the entire thing but I’m not sure if the exact part number 

In looking at the parts lists, I’m not sure if I need the “shock absorber balance”

or the “in setting” of which there seems to be 3(?)

I don't have access to real-time or specific part numbers for Rolex watches. To obtain the accurate part number for the balance sock of a Rolex 1530, I recommend reaching out to an authorized Rolex service center or a qualified watchmaker. They will have the expertise and access to official Rolex parts databases to provide you with the correct information and assist you in finding the appropriate replacement part for your specific watch model.

interesting I didn't know you could purchase individual parts from Rolex service centers or qualified watchmakers? then when you're doing your inquiry to these people also see if you can get the service manual. I think that would probably answer a lot of questions for you.

    • I picked up an L&R Master that needed an overhaul a few weeks ago and have been slowly disassembling and cleaning it, but I've hit a snag: I can't get the motor cover to separate. I've removed the retaining ring from the motor shaft, the setscrew from the side of the housing, and all the screws from the underside of the motor housing. When I first tried moving the lower housing, it was stuck tight--no rotation and no ability to pull it straight out. After attaching a temporary handle to the lower housing with the existing screws, I got enough leverage to get the two pieces to wiggle, but the housing still won't separate.  I've watched a few videos of people restoring these units, and those who bother servicing the motor are able to wiggle the housing halves a bit and then just pull them apart. Anyone with experience with these units have any advice for next steps I could try? Heat? More leverage? Judiciously applied dead-blow hammer? My goal is to do this, of course, without damaging anything.  Given how brittle every wire in this unit seems to be, I want to get the motor apart and replace the power cord as close as possible to the coils. Thanks!
    • I went ahead and made another order for some more tools from the Kwong Yuen factory.  Main purchases were Case Opener, Bezel Lift, Strap Puncher, Tube Remover, Jewelling Set, and a set of screwdrivers. Some pics below, happy to take some more pics of anything if someone wants more details.     I measured the jeweling set, and I'll say the sizes seem consistent, but a little small compared to the printed numbers. Pushers seem to come in about 0.04mm less than marked (220->216). As far as I'm concerned that shouldn't affect its effectiveness much. The actual pushing edge looks decent, but could be dressed to a mirror finish. They come apart and back together without any issues. Here is one pusher out of the box. and after a little dressing.. (first time trying, and probably needs a bit more):
    • I guess I got lucky then! It didn't know about this when I bought mine.  But even if you get the newer version, you need to make sure the respective adapter/knob is included.  See pictures below. 
    • For reference I believe this is the older style, absent are the inside threads for the cap that allows for horia-type pushing
    • Jon and VWatchie Thank you for the video facility in the PowerPoint. Very informative when you see the 'live' version of the written word. Helps beyond belief. Not tried to replace a jewel or setting yet.  However, seeing the process adds to the overall learning.
