      Greetings All,
      Hope that all are doing well - in this crazy COVID world.
      I recently acquired a 1958 Rolex Ref. 6569 with a Cal. 1030 movement. All-in-all very nice and clean for her age - and runs very well.
      The winding pinion and clutch wheel had worn each other out - so I found NOS Rolex parts and replaced those. I though the watch deserved the new parts.
      It appeared to have been serviced in the last 10 years - because everything looked clean and the oil looked good (and present).
      Since the watch seemed to be running well and in good health (other than the winding pinion and clutch wheel) - I didn't do a complete service. I didn't think it was worth the risk.
      However, it seems to me that the watch is harder to wind than I would expect.
      I did do a full service on a 1215 that I bought for my wife (ref. 6694). It needed everything - but an awesome running movement when I was finished.
      The 1215 is of course a manual wind - but similar to the 1030. The 1215 winds lightly and smoothly as one would expect.
      The 1030 is "stiff". I haven't taken the barrel apart - but have just ordered some new mainsprings.
      Is there anything tricky about replacing the auto mainspring in a 1030? Or is more or less like any modern auto?
      Clean the barrel; apply braking grease to wall; fit spring; fit arbor - oil lightly at spring-arbor interface; replace lid?
      Also - I was only able to find a parts-list for this movement. Anyone know where a tech/service sheet (or similar) may be found?
      Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

      Ok, I need the WRT detectives out there and their help. I've searched and as far as I can tell this symbol or trademark belongs to the Chicago Watch Co. 1895-1903 and made by Elgin. The movement came in an old but intact tin stamped "Elgin Watch Co. I looked up the serial # on PWD.com under 'Chicago' and that's what came up. But, there are a few pics of others and mine looks nothing like any of them nor has this trademark. Anyone recognize this trademark? It's a size 18s with no case. Aaaand I just noticed I didn't provide the serial number. I'll post it here in a bit. Thanks Mike

      Hi, a few days ago i bought a preziosa skin diver, the movement is ok, but there isn't the bezel, where i can find a bezel as in the photos, or a bezel that is compatible?

      Does anyone have any more info on this watch movement?  It's a small women's movement. Measures 21.5mm in diameter. Hour/minutes only. It's not an escapement I've seen in a watch before. The only marks I can find are the AS and 40(?). No name on dial either. Thanks!

      I recently came across this while digging thru a bag of watches. It looked interesting and all of the Google hits for "Swiss Made Timex" are in reference to the American Documents series. I've got to assume I'm not searching the right keywords. I was hoping somebody might have a little information on the subject. While looking recently, I couldn't locate almost any Swiss Made. Most of the watches I did find were quartz movements. Thanks for any insight the community can muster!

    • Hello Everyone, I'm Ed, a new fella to Watch Repair Talk. I guess I have YouTube to thank for getting me fascinated with watchmaking. For a few years ago I started watching Watchfinder & Co videos, odd since I didn't own a watch until about a month ago! But ownership didn't really come into it, I just appreciated the craftsmanship that went into making watches and the precision required to do so. Then, about a year ago I found a channel called Wristwatch Revival with a chap called Marshal. He dismantled, cleaned, oiled and reassembled a watch and explained what he was doing and why. That kind of got me hooked. There's also something that really attracts me to the idea of taking a broken watch that could be older than me and making it live again, it's hard to put into words. Hope I'm not over romanticising!  So after a lot more watching and reading and watching I decided to take the plunge and commit to buying some tools in order to learn hands on about watch repair. I have some sacrificial, broken-beyond-repair pocket watches to get me started. Also an understanding that I'll be watching mainsprings take flight, loosing just about anything that can be lost and be spending about 50% of my time on my hands and knees hunting for whatever it was I dropped. That's about enough for now, I hope this post finds you all well and enjoying watchmaking. Best regards, Ed. 
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum.
    • I think the UK is pretty well known for staid taste, and this ain't that; probably explains some of the reaction. As a woodworker, I can appreciate the use of wood and grain. Even with thousands of dollars in exotic woods stashed in a room in my basement, I have to say it's a bit busy for me for the piece. Some people will dig the natural beauty of it though.
