Oris Dive Watch


lr1022

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I'm new to watch repair! Wanted to know if anyone knows about what type of oil and grease I need to use in a Oris 649 ETA 2836-2?

I purchased this watch with slight water damage. Along with a few parts that are missing! If anyone could help me it would be great!

Look forward to hearing from you!!!

Hello Ir1022,

if you look at Mark's videos on servicing a Manual AS 1900, he breaks everything down. Your watch is a little different than that one, but there are other videos that feature ETA and automatic movements too. For the oil I looked at the sheet that the other members have shared, and it looks like the same types of oils Mark uses for his  work. I have copied this list of oils and their placement just as Mark has detailed in his videos and it has worked for me--I've only done three overhauls but they are all running fine.

 

Moebius 8300 for mainspring

Moebius D5 for barrel arbor bearing, setting lever,

crown wheel and click

Moebius 9010 fro train wheels and endstones

Moebius 9501 for keyless winding system and any high-friction area

Moebius 9415 for the pallet pins or jewels themselves (use 941 for fast beat 28,800bph)

 

NO OIL IN TOP OR BOTTOM PIVOTS OF THE PALLET LEVER

 

Hope this helps,

Oh Yeah.... Welcome to the forum!

Thank you so much for that info Noirrac1j!!!

Do you know where I can get the oil? Every place that I've found on eBay and on the web want to sell 20ml or 2 or 3ml! I need like .5ml or something like that!

I don't know when I would ever use that much! Plus by the time you buy all the oil it would cost over $100+! And then sit in a draw for a very long time

Hello lr1022,

The cost of oil is one of the problems that hobbyists have all wrestled with and I spent hours searching the web for small amounts at reasonable prices but regrettably I found a remarkable similarity in pricing from all suppliers of Moebius oils for instance.

If you are just practising, a cheap working watch is a worthwhile purchase, strip and clean it then use a cheap generic watch oil when putting it back together. It is hardly worth spending much on oil for a cheap Chinese movement for instance, however, you will still gain the learning experience.

If you trawl old postings in the forum you will find good reasons to spend more on oil for treasured watches. I used to try to restrict my interest to just a couple of makes - Accutron and Tissot and only bought the oils for them but over time I weakened and started looking at other movements. You will find guidance on the forum for the subject. Mark has covered the topic for instance and we have an oil specialist who gave quite a detailed post on oil generally. Just put in a search.

In conclusion, if the watch you work on is expensive or treasured you probably should use good oil and that I'm afraid comes at a premium.

Cheers and welcome,

Vich

Hey what's up,


Yes the cost of these little vials of oil is absurd. I bought mine over time, but I started out with moebius D5 and 9010. These two should be  sufficient to get you through....at least for the beginning. if anyone else wants to add suggestions please feel free as I am beginning myself. I tried these two for the first overhaul and didn't do the mainspring oiling. The watch is running very well.

There are oils that can be used in most regular watches which are made by Novostar, a Swiss company not under Swatch, (type B, barrel oil, etc). I would give them a try:

 

" Novostar type B, for escape wheels, balance staffs, etc. on watches.

 

It can be used on pallet stones and pins for 5 to 8 3/4 ligne movements.

 

On pins in place of Moebius 8000.

 

Recommended for 5 to 8 3/4 ligne Escape wheels (replaces Moebius 941 or 8000), Balance Staff (replaces Moebius 9010 or 8000), Center Wheels, (replaces Moebius 8020 or 8000).

 

Barrel Arbors (replaces Moebius 9020 or 8000).

 

Use Novostar B on pallet pins on 9 3/4 al the way up to Pocket Watch Movements.

 

Also in escape wheels and balance staffs 9 3/4 to 19 ligne movements..."   US$6.40

 

"Nye PML Stem Grease: Is a superior product for stem and winding parts. ..."  US$16.95

 

 

 

@Vich; Your weakness is making you strong! :) I'm being very weak lately so I feel really strong too! (5 different watches in a week!, the wife is going to kill me).

 

@JC: I did buy mine over time too. I'm also experimenting with success so far with the above oils.

 

In general, recommended ETA lubrication and oils although more like guidelines than rules, gives us all peace of mind...but what if there is something out there, cheaper and that works better? Food for thought!

Has anyone done business with Ernst Westphal?

I was dealing with a person that was not nice at all!

I tried to give them the information by sending pics and he became upset and said it not his job to no where to look for the movement numbers! Quite unprofessional!

I gave the my movement numbers (649 ETA 2836-2) not a word?

Is most watch repair company's that say they sell parts all rude?

You guys have be outstanding and amazing! Helping me out with where to lube and the assembly and video's!

Totally cool!!!

Ernst Westphal are NOT cool to deal with, but neither are O. Frei especially over the phone. Have you tried J Borel in Kansas City? They are excellent. I have an account and I just checked and they do have parts for ETA 2836-2, but I'm not sure what 649 means in relation to the movement number.

Hello lr1022,

 

I have a couple of cheap ones from EBay  and you can also get more expensive if you want swiss manufacture from Cousins and the like.  It is basically two metal plates aligned by posts and steadied by a spring.  Mine are usable on all four sides to cover lots of sizes.  They delicately hold the edge of the movement.

Not all are sprung but I think I prefer them with a spring, it sort of steadies them a tad.  Basically the size (width) of the movement dictates the size you need but you really need to think about your likely Max or Min sizes for your movements and buy holders to suit.  They go up to 65 mm and beyond to cater for pocket watches etc.

 

Cheers,

 

Vic

Hello,

Yeah you can post a picture in your reply. Hit the "More Reply Options" box that is right next to the "Post" box as you write the message...wait a few seconds and then you should see the option for attaching a file, then just put up a picture of the movement from your images,

JC

    • I was going to say, but texting can be difficult due to a lack of nuance, that maybe staying on here could be a good thing.  You do need a  distraction, yes mum comes first but you need some time for yourself.  I hope this has come across as intended. 
    • Hello forum, i have some things i would like to say today if thats ok. Being here is something of a sanctuary for me, talking about something that i love doing with folk that i have become fond of ( yes quite surprisingly under all that craziness and verbal brawn lays a soft heart of gold 🙂 ). I imagine that the same can be said by many of you , a certain number of us are here daily both learning and offering any advice that we are able to. Quoting our experiences both successful and failures for others to learn from. For me at the moment just making this post is a distraction from my current bubble but also from the world around me for various reasons.  Its a place not just for teaching and learning but to make others laugh and smile and be part of a community. I would even go so far as to say we are a team, supporting and encouraging each other when needed and when we are down, my own situation with my mum being a perfect example of everyone's kindness. Thats the soppy bit out of the way 🙂. So my mum has been moved to a brand new facility after making amazing progress with her speech and word recognition in hospital ( poor mum has had to suffer my company and my teaching to the full extent of her visiting hours barring one day off for me that my sister insisted upon ) her consultant calls my mum his medical miracle 🙂, and will be starting her intensive speech rehab today after her initial assessment. Things I've learned about having a stroke, and I'd really like everyone to take note of the causes and outcomes of having one. Please do your own research I am a joiner and not a doctor 🙂, i just want to make everyone aware and just get checked out if you notice anything in yourself that you are unsure about, any risk of having one can be reduced with either medical intervention or/and a change of lifestyle ( which would be my own preference in an attempt to limit my risk, something i have now noticed in myself ). I do know a few of you here have experience but this is what i have become aware of and how it has affected my mum and me. First i want to touch on the effects of a stroke, not only to the sufferer but to the whole family, we all know how dementia affects lives. A stroke effecting language is almost instant non aggressive dementia. Like being in a foreign country where you can no longer read, write or speak to someone without some form of very basic sign language gesturing ( when annoyed i think everyone understands the middle finger ). But a stroke can affect movement ( fortunately my mum is virtually unaffected with her mobility, the nurses can't believe she is 87 and just had a stroke, she's like bloody Supergran, in fact she is a great great grandmother to 2 toddlers ) . Improvement after a stroke carries on for years afterwards, but from what i understand and now believe after being with my mum almost every day since it happened for 7 hours a day, language rehab should be started as soon as possible when the patient is out of danger and physically able. The brain is ready and set to go and rewire itself soon after injury, in a similar ready state to young children ( when we say kids brains absorb information like a sponge, thats pretty much true in early stroke patients) After the first few weeks maybe a couple of months things start to slow down and lesser progression carries on for the years following . After a day she could manage only one word, which was my cue to get on her back and start pushing her progress. Day two i wanted to see how capable she was so i had her writing on a whiteboard ( it wasn't great tbh ) . Day 3 and until she left the hospital most time with her was spent on picture/word recognition on my laptop, picture books, some writing and teaching her to play cards again ( i refrained from gambling for real money, though i was tempted, as I'm  pretty good at poker , she has a few bob and i have space for another watchmakers lathe in my watchroom 🙂 ) Now i suppose i have to back off as the rehab place is fairly intense focused and visiting times are crap as they interfere with all the physio and rehab going on . So i only have 2 hours max a day with her sometimes only 1 if her grandkids want to visit, but she is in good hands and i know she will get as much help as she needs , and as difficult as it is to admit i probably need a bit of a break and distract myself. I'll end this post for now but i want to come back and talk about what caused this and hopefully remind some of you to think about how we live , what to do in the event of a stroke and how we can lower our risk. I'm not a pussy by any means and very little frightens me, but seeing this first hand has put the fear of god into me if i ever had to suffer the outcome of a stroke. My mum is a tough old cookie and i imagine i will be just as tough, but watching the frustration on her face when trying to communicate completely tore my heart into pieces.  Please dont let this happen to you, do everything you can to avoid it, I'll come back soon to talk more about as long as everyone is ok with it, take care for now x
    • The fact that you have witnessed coils of the hairspring clinging or sticking together explains why the watch is running so fast.  If you reduce the length of a hairspring, the watch will run faster. When hairspring coils stick or cling together, this effectively reduces the active length of the hairspring, so the watch runs fast.  As nevenbekriev has said, the most likely culprit here is oil or other contamination on the hairspring causing coils to stick together. Cleaning the hairspring as he describes will solve the problem. Occasionally the contamination causing the hairspring coils to stick can be very stubborn to remove, in which case I suggest ultrasonic cleaning in acetone, naphtha or a commercial watch cleaning solution. Magnetism can also cause coils of the hairspring to stick together, if the hairspring is made of an alloy that can be magnetised. Finally, your watch has what is called a pin pallet escapement. They are considered to be less refined, but quite rugged compared to a traditional Swiss lever escapement. They are quite forgiving. They do require lubrication, if you haven’t done so already, find instructions for lubrication of these escapements to get optimal performance from this watch. Hope this helps, Mark
    • Murks, In theory, yes. For example I have a Seiko dress watch (dress style case) with a 6309 movement in it which I would not take diving, similarly, I have a Seiko divers watch with the same movement in it (6309) which is a diving watch. The only difference is the case (and crown sealing system), the diving watch case is made for diving due to it's more robust seal system on the case and its a more rugged design. Seiko 6309 divers watch: Seiko 6309 dress watch:
    • I mean let's say a was to make a dives watch is this mean as long the case is a dives case and a fits the movement it should be ok and is this means any movement longs it fit the dives case?
