    Although my question is about a vintage Omega it could well apply to any make or model so I'm appealing to all watch lovers for help. Now I know there is plenty of debate about engraving and inscriptions in much the same way as with tattoos but ......... someone, somewhere decided to make a real...
  2. Pilots' & Military watches
    I have been wearing an Eterna Airforce regularly for the past few years, but it has developed several problems and I haven't decided what to do with it. Rotor is detached, so it must be hand wound. Because I was winding it by hand, the threads on the case where the crown screws down have worn...

    By chance I stumbled upon a wealth of official Seiko information on movement repair, parts lists etc. etc. etc. It seems to cover many old and new Seiko movements, mechanical and quartz. Perhaps many of you already know about this, but I thought i'd share it anyhow. Have a look at...

    My original orient blue ray fell off my kick drum, and when it landed, the date window frame popped off. I took it to a jeweler who glue it back on... BACKWARDS. Now, I cannot read the full date and time correctly, and I can see the gap between two wheels. I asked him to fix it and he said its...

    I have an eight year old Traser H3 Classic Automatic w/an ETA 2824-2 movement and illumination. I just sent it in for repairs at the official Traser repair facility: Traser H3 Swiss Watches Claude Bernard Swiss Watches Edox Swiss Watches Repair quote: Option 1 includes replacing the current...

    I heard on the grape vine (late no doubt) that the Swatch Group will be/have already stopped the sale of spare parts for their watches. Does this mean that smaller watchmakers can no longer get spare parts for repair and maintenance? Obviously sounds like a 'yes' to that question, but it might...
  7. Seiko
    I have a lovely Seiko 7548 from December 1980 that I discovered amongst the possessions of a recently deceased relative. It seems to be essentially unused. I replaced the battery and the movement started up normally. But when I went to adjust the time, the crown and stem came off entirely. I...

    Does anyone know somewhere reputable and affordable to get a watch repaired in Dubai? I know i could take it to a boutique in one of the malls, but I'm hoping for somewhere like the gold souk where things could maybe be a bit more affordable (but, again, still reputable). Sorry if this is in...
  9. TAG Heuer
    Hi, I've decided to make the effort to try and repair my late father's TAG Heuer 3000 Professional 937.406 (mid to late 1980s model). The watch runs well and despite some wear on the buckle and bezel, the only real problem is that the pin(s) used to hold the dial in place have broken off...

    I have an 18 K old Omega Constellation 111 with an ETA 2892-2 movement in it. The serial number is 49511104 I believe. The Crown has snapped off the stem so i need to replace the stem and the crown and want to make sure i do it right and order the right parts. Can anyone advise?
  11. Watchmaking
    I have a movement assembled except for the hairspring and balance staff. manually nudging the escape wheel turns the rest of the gear train, but moving the pallet fork does not turn the escape wheel. Both parts seem to be assembled correctly and sitting properly. :-s Is there a possible fix, or...
  12. Seiko
    Purchased an SKX009k2 from Amazon via Dexclusive a while back. Love it to death, aside from two small things. 1) The crown seems very tight when I screw it down, like its almost grinding through the threads. Is this normal for this watch, or should it be more smooth? Should I call in a warranty...
  13. Omega
    I would like to share a recent Omega experience to all who believe in the importance of after-sales service. A few weeks after purchasing my Omega Seamaster late last year, I noticed that the hour handle did not line up with hour markers at each hour point. I was prepared to live with that...

    Hi, my WUS friends. After reading many posts and threads, I decided to try and regulate my 50th Anniversary Seiko 5 (SRP409J1). Beautiful green & gold dial model; made in Japan. But it was running 20 seconds a day slow... I must have been a little clumsy, and touched the hairspring while...
  15. Seiko
    I've had this watch for 5 years, it's been as reliable as these watches can be. Started loosing 5-10 min per hour. I've let it stop and restart it several times. Nothing helped? Wasn't satisfied w/Seiko service center in NJ. Not even sure they looked at the watch before estimating the repair...
  16. Seiko
    I have recently acquired a couple of vintage Seikos, and in the interest of good watch health they could probably do with a bit of a going over: a grease and oil-change, so to speak. I'm in Melbourne, Australia: can anyone recommend a repairer who is trustworthy (and who does good work)? Many...

    Im trying to restore one of my 3133 chronographs, and I am in need of a mounted chronograph runner. I can't seem to find one for a 3133, but cousins UK has one for a valjoux 7734. Anyone think this might work instead of the poljot part? The potential problems I see are the number of teeth...
  18. Breitling
    Hello Watchuseek, Thanks for stopping by my post, I have a question to ask fellow enthusiasts. In November of 2013 I purchased a Breitling Chronograph from the 1940s. It was in great condition and it was, without a doubt, real. Three days after I purchased the watch, the crown and stem...

    I recently purchased my first vintage Vostok off eBay and I'd like to try my hand at some basic repairs and adjustments, but I've never done this kind of thing before, so I'm looking for some guidance. Specifically, I'd like to open up the watch to regulate the movement and replace the hands. I...

    Hey. :) Have these random old quartz watches here if anyone is interested... Any fair offers will be considered for the lot. There are two Next watches, both in full working order in good condition with new batteries. Two Fossil watches, one with a shattered Glass/Crystal (no bits missing)...
