Hello. Dear watchmakers.
I have a very old timepiece from Rolex that I am about to work on..
From googling, I found out that this is called "trench watch" that might had been used during WWI or any other war in that era ( 1910~1920)
However, I could not figure out the reference no. of the movement. All I know about the movement is that it is 29mm in diameter and has 15 jewels.
I am actually looking for a replacement movement for this watch since the mainspring must be replaced due to damage.
Plus, I am also looking for the rachet wheel with "Rolex" engraved to replace the existing one.
I have found similar movements on the web(the third photo added) but click part was not the same.
I wonder if the one with different type of click would have parts that are replaceable.
To sum up, my questions are
1) the reference of the movement.
2) how I can get parts or the whole movement for replacement
3) does a movement with different click type would be suitable for replacement.
Thanks and I wish you a great day.
Why my rolex precision 6466 stops when crown screw down..
But it runs again when crown not screw down or in manual wind position?
It stops when the crown enter too deep inside the movement..
It never ceases to amaze me what you can stumble across whilst looking up something else on the web.
I was looking for help on replacing the failed hydraulic disc breaks on my 15 year old mountain bike, but instead discovered a gem of a video on how bicycles were made in Britain back in 1945.
Enjoy the video if you have nothing better to do for the next 17 minutes and 22 seconds.
Interesting, when you talk about the price being preserved are you saying having the dial redone will not affect the price? And I agree these markings to the dial do not look natural to me they either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
