Today.... My 1940's Heuer Ref 347. Rugged looking watch with its battle scared dial. It has a Valjoux 22 under the hood. It's quite a large case for the time which gives it more of a contemporary

My 1961 Omega Constellation. Hard to believe its 60 years old. I don't think the Omega bracelet is correct . I believe these types came out in 62'. Doesn't matter since I like these more squared grain

... well if you think that thing is off the wall, I'm sure I have some much, much odder stuff.

Maybe I should start a separate thread for the most off the wall watches.

I second the motion that you should start an "off the wall watches" thread.

You've set "off the wall" bar pretty high there. Here's a ... well I'm not actually sure what it is to be perfectly honest... but it is what it is.

Orient Star 'Explorient'. Any ideas for the date of this watch? Movement 48748, case ER0T C0 CS. This watch is 36mm diameter and has the latest version of the Orient Star logo so I'm thinking not that old. Any Orient experts out there?

 I really like the 1940's art deco style but it's hard to find a large case. This one is unusual in that it's 28mm. 

It's one of my top 3 & I probably wear it as much as my black strap watch because oxblood goes with almost everything.

Now it's back where it belongs to.

I love this. I had a similar pallet fork in a 137 year old Elgin I’ve been working on...

Well it certainly isn't shy about letting you know it is ticking.

Its actually not too bad (for a 1967 Timex mechanical).

Not exactly COSC, but not bad, given that it is a slightly agricultural bit of 1960s technology, which almost certainly has only been serviced once in its lifetime since it left the Dundee factory all those years ago. Its seems to have survived my servicing reasonably well too, since it is still going strong more than two years later.

    • Russia is member of the Universal Postal Union and as such their Post must accept pieces for any destination. International tariffs link https://www.pochta.ru/documents/10231/726549028/УУС+2021_.pdf/ Interstingly unlike hey do not group destinations by listing orcontinents but by distance - however measured.  Then any individual seller is free to decide where they do ship and where not. I suggest that you contact the seller and inquire, he may be just be unfamiliar with remote destinations prices. 
    • I don't get your point. If you make or maintain a measurement tool, of any kind, you need a reference for calibration or just validation. It can be more or less accurate but it has to be there, that's metrology 101. You can have all the atomic clocks and Network Time Protocol to disseminate time, the issue is how to bring that accuracy to a standalone device and know if it is reliable.  Otherwise one can get into watercolor painting or other interests that do not require that kind of approach at all. 
    • Material houses like cousins, eslinger, ofrei, julesborel do carry watch parts, though I doubt you can find a sign crown for this. Familiarize with  Dr ranfft's very popular database for good general information on most calibers, just google ETA 1260 ranfft. Good luck
    • You can use any crown of your liking and that matches the pendant tube. Since you haven't posted pictures of the case one can't tell how it should like.  Two piece stems are easily available, even on Ebay.    As answered sometime. In the past service manuals did not exist because the watchmaker was supposed to known his trade well enough.  Parts lists were issued to ease identification and ordering, very many including for the one you have can be downloaded from Cousins UK. 
    • Hello, I am new to watch repair and am looking for some guidance. After taking an online course and practicing on a knockoff ETA 6497 I've started looking at one of my Ebay finds. Currently I'm working on a Wyler Incaflex 1023H. I think it's from the 1950's after popping of the armored crystal I learned that it's an ETA 1260 movement inside. I am missing the crown and there is water damage and rust on the stem and movement body at the stem. That said the rest of the movement looks great and when I persuaded it to wind the movement fired right up! I think I've deciphered an old GS watch crystal cross reference chart properly and came up with either a 26.0mm ATC GS part # PA368 or a 26.06mm ATC GS part # PA368-10. What I haven't been able to find is much information on the missing crown and a replacement stem. the case is a single piece and the movement comes out through the front. Does anyone have experience with Wyler and ETA 1260 movements? Any advice on how to find the correct crown and stem? Is there a service manual available? Thank you.
