    Hi all, my first ever post here! I'm trying to design a watch around the movement and case back from a Citizen watch I got from eBay. In order to mature my design, I need to know the thread specs I need to have, in order for the Citizen case back to screw on properly. Below is a photo of the...

  5. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Is doing so a no-no? I ask because I’m not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, these old cases are historical objects that should be protected and passed down unto the next generation if possible. On the other, it’s a blank slate that was made to be engraved, yet never was. How does this...

    I recently bought a gshock ga-900. The back case has a strange number. What really strange is that, after I searched on the web, I did find that a few people with different models of gshock also having this strange numbers on their watch's back case. This strange numbers is liked they purposely...

    Hi guys I have a scratch on the glass case back of my Hamilton 38mm American Classic (you can't see it too clearly in the photo, but it is visible and irritates me). I've tried contacting Hamilton customer service with no luck - I want to know if I can buy and replace the glass (not the whole...
  9. Oris
    After buying my Aquis which I was told had a sapphire case back by Oris boutique London and the sales people in the shop I bought from, I kept seeing people say it is mineral. Also some online stores say it's mineral. Some reviews say it's sapphire. Well it's mineral. I totally missed that on...

    I have had this Citizen ecodrive watch since new. I typically change my family's watch batteries but this one has me stumped. It appears to be a snap caseback, but I cannot find a spot to insert my Bergeon caseback blade. Please see photos. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.
  11. Seiko
    I hope this is the proper forum for my post. If not, I apologize. Back in the day--when I was not as educated nor discerning when purchasing vintage watches--I bought what I believe is a 6139-6002 Seiko Pogue (I do realize the 6005 is considered the actual Pogue). One of my issues regards what...

    Hey everyone, I've never asked anyone, but have noticed over the years that probably 50% of people make a compound word out of "caseback" while others separate the two. I really have no particular opinion and have, I think, subconsciously gone between the two of these. On one hand, "caseback"...
  13. Bell & Ross
    Hi, there have been several posts related to the (in)famous DO NOT UNSCREW text on the case back. However, nowhere I could find what really is supposed to happen when you remove that screw. I mean, will the stem release instantly or does the tiny hole give access to some pusher for releasing...

    Hey everyone, thank you for taking the time to read this. I've been trying to open the case back of this Citizen ana-digi vintage watch from 1970. I figured it was a screw in back case, but no matter how hard I've tried (I do have the appropriate tool), it just won't budge, which got me...
  15. Watchmaking
    Hello, I have never found removing a case back to be a chore, but today I am left with a bit of annoyance. Each case back grove is less than perfect. There is no place for the tool to grab because each grove has been worn down. Small bit of alcohol has been used, hot/cold. I assume there is...

    Hi all, I have a question regarding display (or, exhibition/see-through) case backs. So far, I have not been able to find an answer! I’ve got a sarb035, it is a great watch, but the hardlex crystal in the case back has got quite a few scratches on it. Is it possible to replace the crystal in...

    Comrades, I bought a Poljot on the bay and when I took the back off I was greeted by this strange circle of vinyl -- WTF! I can't imagine this is how it came from the factory, or why it's there, it can't be for water proofing (at least not vinyl). My only guess is perhaps there was a rubber...

    I replaced the battery in this watch (it's a simple watch but has special significance for me), and cannot put the case back on. It requires such tremendous force that I am afraid to break the domed crystal. Can anyone recommend basic household tools (that I would likely already have) to put it...
  19. Watchmaking
    Hello everyone! I'm a newbie watchmaker and have been buying many non-running vintage diver watches to learn and maybe even rehab some of them. I just came across a beautiful diver. The stem and crown came off when I tried to set the date. It goes back on and works well, I figure the locking...
  20. Omega
    Recently acquired a 145.036. According to the seller it was serviced by Omega in late 2013. The dial, hands, crowns, and pushers were replaced and it had a complete movement service. All the original parts were included with the watch. So, I can return it to its hard won, original quadragenarian...
