Question

One method is to grind a slot into it with a Dremel tool with a thin disk on it, then screw it out. Another method is to make an extension to it with epoxy and a metal pin or even a toothpick and when it hardens, use the pin to turn it out. Someone else can chime in with other ideas. Steve

Or

Make the same scenario using  a reverso staking tool using two screw-removing stakes.

 

...just thinking out loud

 

The other option would be to disolve the screw using Alum.

      I'm having some unexpected behaviour from a eta 7750 that I'm trying to regulate after servicing.
      I went through service procedure using correct lubricants.
      Everything went fine. Actually I have some doubt on lubrication of incabloc wich I'm not sure I did correctly since I'm afraid that too much oil was placed in one of the two stones.
      The fact is that when I finished I wasn't brave enough to clean and lubricate it again ... shame on me but I felt that task to be very very difficult.
      Anyway after reassembling the watch I had it at my wrist for a week and it showed a great consistency at -10 sec a day.
      It'a stop grade movement and resting at night in DU, DD 9UP and 3UP positions always showed something between -14 -6
      I was very happy with that result and I thought that a little regulation would have brought it to a very fine time keeping.
      Then I reopened the caseback and slightly moved etachron arm, that was resting in a nearly neutral position, in the + direction.
      Nothing happened (measuring with timegrapher open source app)
      Did it again, another slight push.
      Nothing
      ? ok I must have gone the wrong direction, then pushed all the way toward   - 
      Nothing happened.
      Ok this is annoying, all the way toward +
      nothing
      here I am, 
      what I'm I missing?
      How come moving the regulator arm from - to + does not make any variation?
      I'm lost

      Hi,
      in order to buy appropriate spares in my attempt to service an Omega 175.0083 (7750)  I need some advice:
      1.
      I've already been suggested to replace MS:
      Barrel is Ok and I'm thinking of buying a new MS and moebius 8217 for barrel lubricating as I don't want to spend money on recommended Kluber 125 grease.
      Should I consider instead buying a barrel complete (assuming Barrel complete (180.1) comes with MS installed) wich supposedly comes prelubricated ?
      2.
      Attached image shows automatic device bridge with evident sign of wear from where, to my understanding, the problem orginated: a screw came off
      I cant find original part. 
      ETA part is different from Omega in that the Omega is larger and partially covers hammer two function and the chronograph cam.
      Beside that and since the watch has no crystal back case I think those parts are perfectly interchangeable.
      Do I need to replace the bridge or are there alternative aproaches to this problem?
      TIA
      Giuseppe

      A new 7750 movement, cleaning and assembly again, why watch swing only 260 °?

      Hello!
      I am servicing my first 7750 (thank you Mark for the YT videos and Lawson for the Disassembly/Assembly walk-through).
      The movement is not new - let's say it has an obscure unknown history  It appears to be a genuine swiss 7750, but with a lower grade finish (very low...)
      When putting back the balance stones I noticed that there were two sizes (two pairs, because the cap stones fit the hole jewel settings). I put the smaller stone and hole-jewel on the mainplate and the larger ones on the balance cock. I tried to but the larger setting on the mainplate but it didn't fit quite right. I believe the springs are the same size - its just the stones that differ a bit (aprox 0.1mm) 
       
      So my question is: did any of you stumbled upon the same issue? Is it normal for a 7750 to have two different stone sizes?
      Thank you!
      Bogdan

    • The dial looks good for it's age.  From my experience there is really much that can be done to improve the look of a vintage dial. Often what appears to be dirt is instead oxidation and cannot be removed without changing the appearance of the dial. I would stick to using Rodico and Q-Tips dipped in distilled water. If you do anything, be very careful and work very slow.  Keep in mind the printing on the dial is often placed on top of the lacquer and it's the first to go when "cleaning" is attempted.
    • Thanks. That was going to be my first step. I asked because I was curious if the "resets wrong but advances right" was indicative of something specific that I haven't come across in discussions yet. Worst case scenario, I line up the second hand and don't think about it much when the minute recorder advances.
    • I think you can just remove the hand and set it at zero when in reset position. If that doesn't do it there's a laundry list of potential issues, on which books have been written. Try that and if you still have a problem it can be addressed.
    • Thanks.  Not broken, the balance cock spring is identical.  Huge ping hazard though.    These function very much like the usual Incabloc springs in that you release the legs and then lift the spring out of the housing. Thanks,   RMD
    • Yes, and it's able to resist Emerson (sic) in water. Maybe he got luckier on dry land.
