Hi everyone. Some vintage oris stop running not long after cleaned, I am sure the problem is common with vintage oris 677 kif and 704 kif.since I got many of them. I think of worn down staffs or weak main spring as the cause.
Interestingly dropping one drop of aircraft fuel on top of the upper and lower jewels of balance wheel only and it fly like combat jet.
Lots of hope to recieve your opinion.
Yesterday my Oris watch hit a tiled floor when the strap pin broke and the back crystal popped off. Being in a rush , I quickly pressed it back into position and left it for later investigation.
Today the crystal seems to be fixed in position, but I have no experience of removing or replacing these. Was a simple press of the thumb strong enough to do the job? How can I check, other then testing with my thumb nail. Are these a simple pop on fixing?
I'd suggest cousinsUK.com (England). I live in Sweden myself and being a tiny country it's almost impossible to get any spare parts locally. So far Cousins has never failed and their customer service is just brilliant.
Good luck with your project!
Just got started with restoring my Tissot Seastar Chronograph, 40508-9X, ser# 2418468, mod 870 1277, vintage early 1950.
Need to replace the crystal and seal, maybe hour and min hands (not a must).
The dims of the crystal are: 28,55 OD X 27,0 ID X 3,5 high. Mat is plastic, the shape is domed. Uses an ID metal ring, which is OK.
The seal measures: 33,0 X 31,0 X 2,0
Can't find it in the US... Does anybody have those parts or where can I get them?
Great thought. To prevent any marks from a tool such as a metal screwdriver, I could fashion a plastic pixie stick or a piece of peg-wood to a flat end and give that a slight twist for control. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
