Ernest Borel Cocktail crystal


Recommended Posts

Hello I’m new here i have no prior watch tinkering experience and I have just purchased an Ernest Borel Cocktail watch online I can ably assume from the photos that the crystal is either not fitted correctly or has been replaced with a slightly higher dome than usual would any one of you brilliant experts be able to advise on this and possibly tell me what the exact replacement crystal i would need to restore it true to factory speck

    • I have a cheap version of this been using it for nearly 3 years now.  Works fine, i sometimes reshape the fork and when i past reworking i fit another fork insert. I try to save the pennies with cheap general tools  that add up to the pounds for the real goodies. 
    • Hi everyone, I have an enfield mantle clock where I can't get the silence lever to stay in the silent position, the first three images show the positions of chime, silent (when held), then the silent position when released. Is there something missing that helps it stay in the silent position? Are the marks of 12 & 49 the pendulum length and year? There is a stamp inside the case, is this original or a device / repair date? Any help much appreciated, thanks
    • Hi everyone! Hope you're all keeping well. I'm working on an old Chronosport Chronograph with an Ebauches Bettlach (EB) 8371-67 and broke the lower pusher's rod and leaving the other half still screwed on to the button pusher.  I was able to unscrew the upper button albeit with a little resistance perhaps glued by the previous watch repairer. However, for this lower one, the rod just wouldn't budge. I've soaked the button in Acetone in the hopes of melting the glue and it still wouldn't move. Blasted it hot with a hairdryer, touched it with a soldering iron and still no go. As you can see on the photos below, the pusher is flat on one spot due to my holding it with a vise grip, yes, that's right. Vise grip. I was desperate see. Twisting and turning both the rod and button resulted in nothing. I did, however, successfully bent the rod. So, further trying to correct the bend the next day, I ended up snapping the whole thing in two. So, I'm wondering what my options are and if someone can give guidance: Replace the rod. Where to get the replacement rod then how to remove the broken stump? If removing the stump, how and with what? Replace the whole set of pushers, ie the upper and lower buttons. If replacing, will generic parts do and where to acquire them. Any advice or solution given is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jesse   Chronosport c1970s Pictures of the same button. Note the stump and flattened button. This picture is the other pusher. Disassembled with no issues. Note the melted gasket.
