Looking for some help, my friend had an issue with his watch having water enter the movement. It has stopped working and I fear the movement could be fried. Just in case this worst case scenario plays out I was looking at new movements. The movement is an ETA (Tag) 955.112.


I looked on CousinsUK and they say it is a discontinued movement. They only have the version without the seconds hand for sale.

Does anyone know the correct movement to replace the ETA 955.112 with? I did see one site state that the ETA F06.111 was the replacement, but I'm not sure I trust the source enough to order one without checking here first.

Also it looks like the crystal gasket may be to blame, can anyone point me in the right direction for a replacement? It is a Tag Kirium, but the part numbers have been worn off that case back.





I guess this would also imply that the 955.114 could also replace the 955.112??

Before rushing to purchase a new movement? The word tag bothers me end that often times they modify the watch. Plus you're missing one other little piece of information you need anyway. Somewhere there is a height number that you need to make sure you get the right height in other words will account for the various thicknesses of dials etc. So oftentimes that's what tag will change that.

This kind of thing comes up for a work where they have to sometimes swap components from one watch to another to get the right height components because you may not build actually purchase the right height movement. So just something to pay attention to.

I don't know whether you solved the problem, but if not: Read this article;



On eBay I found this;


As JohnR725 said, the height of the hour-wheel, canon-pinion and seconds pivot may vary, but if I remember well, just as John mentioned, I swapped them from the old broken movement ...... Can't remember for 100%, it has been many years ago.

Of course, the little plate over the coil can be changed out, that suddenly makes the movement from an ordinary, of the mill ETA something very exclusive 😂

    • Even after thorough cleaning unfortunately the issue persists. I have made sure that all wheels are perfectly clean, no teeth are chipped, no gunk is left built up on them etc. yet the issue is not gone. When reassembling the movement I of course checked if the wheel train moves freely as that was the suspected cause of the issue before. And the intersting thing is - it does - but only in the "wrong" direction. Driving the wheeltrain by turning the mainspring barrel in the opposite direction as it would turn in normal operation, all wheels spin freely, and continue spinning for a few moments even after I stop providing power by hand. They behave the way I'm used to and have seen with other wheels before. However: When I apply torque in the opposite direction, the power delivery througout the train is not smooth or continuous. While it does turn, there are stages of increased resistance in the train. In addition to this, you can hear a slight "rubbing" sound whenever the trian passes by this point of increased resistance. The sound, to me, is more indicative of a surface rubbing on another surface, rather than the teeth of two wheels getting stuck within each other. Installing the click and putting a wind in the mainspring confirms this same issue, it does unwind and all wheels are powered, yet when the power reserve approaches depletion, it doesn't have enough power to push the wheeltrain past this point of friction. The slightest bump on any of the wheels will free the train, make it spin for however many rotations and then get stuck in the same way. You can do this several times before the power is actually completely depleted. This has really left me dumbfounded. I have inspected all of the wheels, pivots, teeth etc. on the entire wheel train and can't find any traces of dirt, any bent teeth or any warped or out of plane wheels. Besides: If one of the wheels was bent and rubbing up against some other part of the movement during a rotation, shouldn't it be doing this regardless of the direction of the rotation? This is supremely confusing to me and I can't figure out for the life of me why there is increased friction in only ONE direction and not the other. Installing the balance yielded the same result as before the disassembly: the watch runs great for about 50 seconds and then get's stuck when the wheel train get's bogged down. I mentioned earlier that there is a periodic scraping noise that can be heard when the gear train turns fast, this noise is not present when turning the train the opposiste direction. Does anyone have any ideas about which parts of the movement I can check for rubbing? I found no signs of wear or scraping on any of the bridges etc. so what would cause this periodic friction in one direction but not the other? I am very much a novice and have never dealt with such an issue before so I would love to hear what you people think about this. Thanks.
    • For me the second site has been hacked. 
    • https://www.mikrolisk.de/show.php?site=280&suchwort=Tschuy-Vogt&searchWhere=all#sucheMarker Wierd the first link didn't work.  They used other manufacturers movements, like most watch companies.  The watch you are asking about has this movement  https://calibercorner.com/ronda-caliber-3540-d/
    • Is there a way to interpret that?  I assume that is information on the watch?  Thanks!
