looking for source - ebel model 1157111 gasket

Question

I am replacing battery on my wife's lovely Ebel ladies wave and the gasket on the bezel is shot.

Model # 1157111

My Dad was the Ebel service agency in Phila but he is gone and I'm stuck looking for a new gasket.

Ideas on source for gasket or even part number?

 

thx

 

Steve

Ebel parts are very difficult to get why must it be Ebel ? Its just a round gasket that fits in a groove at the back of the bezel its not a fancy shaped gasket so it should be possible to fit a generic Swiss gasket.

Measure the o-ring groove ID and the o-ring cross section and then visit www.mcmaster.com and search for O-rings.

Note they have Metric which are easy and the US (Parker) standard numbering system for the "inch" ones. Get your measurement converted inches and mm and search both (exactly 25.4mm per inch conversion).

Another thing is that the smallest cross section is 1mm, so if it's a thin 0.5mm o-ring you have to search/ask the watch supply houses, which will cost more.

thanks all...I guess I am a bit of a snob as I was trained to use genuine parts whenever possible.   But you are all right and a generic gasket will work well.   I have ordered a set of various sizes hoping one will fit.

so when I go to referenced website, there are a zillion choices for material of O ring....can you be more specific?

there books and books on o rings,  both metric and inch.   the o ring groves diffrer depending on its use.  the material differs also depends on use.  temperture,  solubility,  age of material formula, etc..   i don't know of any designed for watched.   they worked great on radial engines.   vin

    • Lol that's the problem JohnHutchins....I do not want to have to take apart this watch just to replace a capacitor, especially with those annoying/fragile plastic gears. Not worth the effort for a $60 job. I feel like Citizen made it like this in order to force customers to send their watch in for a $200 service that takes 6 months (in which they will just rip the stem out and replace the entire movement). Shame. You might be right though, Pip, maybe there's been some sort of manufacturing flaw or unseated piece that is preventing the stem from coming out. Shit does happen.
    • Maybe you have a broken or unseated piece meaning the stem removal lever doesn’t move into position when you pull the stem out. Shit happens! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
    • A vintage Dundee lady tonight. I doubt if this is the smallest Timex watch ever made, but it is certainly fairly dinky. Serviced and polished, but the strap that was on it is done, and I have no 10mm straps, so I'll need to get one. I'm unsure of the age, if any of the experts know, do tell.  Other than a very light crop of green fungus on the strap pins (fresh pins fitted) and the dead strap it was fairly tidy and polished up rather nicely. It is managing a fairly respectable swing of 265 degrees and sitting slightly fast at +70 at the moment, so I'll let it settle overnight and finish it up tomorrow.
    • Seems like you are getting to the point where you have to make a decision - do I disassemble the watch completely in order to get the movement out of the case?   
    • Pip - yeah I've also taken a look at the diagram, but thats the assembly from the underside of the movement. And if you look at the dashes, the set lever ends up being set into a place farther up towards the center, which can't be reached from the dial side. This thing is a straight up anomaly.
