I have an skx and I want to keep it 200m water resistant. I opened the case to fix the oscillating weight and did not know I should lubricate the gasket when I closed it. So now I want to reopen it and use silicone grease. But I am not sure if this particular silicone grease works for watches as well because it is advertised as divers equipment silicone grease. Can someone confirm that I can use this silicone grease for watch gasket?
I need some help with repairing my Emporio Armani ar-1922.
I've watched some videos on YouTube but none of them resemble the movement of this particular watch.
My first problem is removing the stem/crown. I cannot see anything which looks like it will release the stem and I don't want to poke around inside it any more for fear of creating any damage.
Any help will be much appreciated.
Hey, so I have a question. I've got an Invicta dive watch with a NH35A movement here that whenever I unthread the stem and crown as it is unthreading the date starts changing. Once its unthreaded I can change it to the 1, 2 and 3 positions and set and wind it accordingly. How can I fix this and what is causing this?
I am working on a vintage watch and the crown of the watch is fitted with a hidden type gasket which is
in terrible condition and needs to be replaced.
However, I found it difficult to pull the gasket out with my tweezers or tooth pick.
Could anyone recommend an easier way to remove this kind of gasket from the crown??
I forgot to take a photo of the crown so I attached a similar example I found on the web.
i recently broke my patek 5134 by winding a little too vigorously. heard a click sound and can no longer wind the watch.
it has a 215 PS movement
after dissasembly, i see that the "under" wheel that the crown wheel is attached to (located under the barrel bridge) has a couple of broken teeth.
the wheel has 3 screw holes and a nub in the middle for the crown wheel to attach to.
from my searches on the internet, it appears this part is #421, but i am not sure, wondering if anyone can confirm correct part number
or has any ideas where to procure part. i will attach a picture showing the part, its the silver part under the highlighted bushing with 3 holes in it.
Hopefully a decade of experience after graduation from Mark Lovicks courses, you will have acquired enough skills to attempt servicing the Wittnauer complications. Let us enjoy watching its picture please.
Meanwhile we can have fun playing baseball or with the seiko.
Just a thought.
You know, I wonder if I could adapt a micro-mesh single-serving reusable coffee filter to the same purpose. I keep ending up working on large (50 & + mm.) Swiss pocket watch movements that would not fit into smaller cleaning holders.
But they might fit in a coffee filter.
You gave me an idea, sir! Thank you.
