One of my dive watches is currently under repair and the Escape Wheel needs to be replaced. The caliber is AS 1700/01 and I wonder if I can use the Escape Wheel of the AS1702 or AS1703 as according to Ranfft website they should be similar although the AS 1700/01 is automatic and the AS1702 manual wind. Thank you for your input!

The more cogent question is, "Is my watch equipped for an escape wheel with straight or conical pivots or a combination there of?"
I honestly am a bit of a noob when it comes down to these 'technical' comments. I attached the picture of the current escape wheel on the first post. Can you maybe eloborate how your comment relates to my question? Thank you in advance.

Your photo lacks sufficient resolution.

Do you have a cap jewel for the escape wheel pinion's pivot on the plate?

On the bridge?

Do you have a qualified watchmaker?
