Timex Quartz Watch

Question

Hi, hoping that someone can help me out

I have recently found my dear old dad's watch in the attic (he died in 1990)

I took it to a jeweller in the hope that a new battery would result in it being ok & that I could wear it

However, he tells me that the battery had leaked & had destroyed the terminals. He suggested that I try & get a replacement movement for it?

I'm told that the movement number is TIM862. Can anybody please help?

regards

Ronnie

The movement will be obsolete. It may be possible for a watchmaker to find, adapt and fit something else with similar specifications. However, with this watch, the calendar is likely to be a problem, since its difficult to get a movement that has calendar wheels that match up well with the existing calendar windows.

    • Yeah definitely feeling some regret as I was getting to the deep innards of the watch, being careful not to inhale the smallest screws, referring to YouTube to try and figure out what I was looking at... The watch came up pretty cheap in my neighbourhood and I couldn't pass it up. I'm not sure it would justify the cost of a professional service though, so here I am
    • I have an omega triple date repair....the issue is that the month wheel is jammed and will not advance....if the date is advanced via one click of the crown it will stop at 31..the only way at this point to advance it to 01 is via the crown while setting the time...now the issue I am having at time with...getting the pressure ring case back off...for some reason on older pieces I have not had an issue...on this one yes!..any advice on how to remove it would be most welcome...there is no where on the  case back indicating where to insert a case knife....my horotec case back remover was no help in this situation either...thanks...
    • Cheers oldhippy beat me to it,  yep as old hippy says that what it does, its cheap aswell, I think I only paid a few quid for my block from cousins, you have to move the brush very fast but nice and light at the same time to get the best results, then peg out all your pivot holes.
    • Did you modify the ergonomic oiler as well? Does the oil sit on yours as it does on mine?
      I just don’t know how I could use them, perhaps for posts, touching them with the side of the oiler. The oil is going nowhere if it touch something with the tip.
    • After cleaning and polishing brass. If you French chalk the brass parts with a soft clean brush it prevents tarnish of brass and can add that extra shine. Some clockmakers still use this old process today. It is also another way in which you do not need to bother to lacquer parts.   French chalk is magnesium silicate.
