    Repair Help with LeCoultre 910-broken clutch wheel/setting wheel

    I arrived at the canon pinion solution just as I read your post and laughed out loud! Thank you! This is why I love this forum-you guys always have the answers! I decided to see where the setting was hanging up and removed part by part to diagnose it. The 3 setting wheels in the photo below...

    Memovex Travel Pocket Alarm-Uncasing?

    Problem solved! It's front loading. I was able to coax bezel off and it pushed right out through the front. Thanks for listening to my rant :). If I do get it running-will post pics!

    Memovex Travel Pocket Alarm-Uncasing?

    Thanks! I already tried that - but they are different movements/configurations and the nice one has no retaining ring like the damaged one. Hoping someone might have removed one like this damaged one before.

    Memovex Travel Pocket Alarm-Uncasing?

    Hi all, A friend asked me if I could get this running... :oops:. I told him that it looks like it was buried in someones yard for a few years before being found again. The back cover is missing and it's full of soil and rust. I had to soak the stem set screws for 2 days with penetrating...

    GFC Besancon Wrist Watch

    Hi All, Thought this was an interesting one to share. Recent, very cheap purchase. It is an ETA 1080 movement with dial labeled GFC Besancon. I know from internet that Besancon is a French watch making city/center. It needed a stem, crown and detente lever and is now running nicely. Nice...

    2 Oldies-Beguelin and Pierce

    Fixed up a neat little old Pierce watch for a friend, and he gave me this fixer upper in return. I've attached pics of both. The Beguelin has a AS 340, 6J, 2 adj movement inside and a killer case. Does anyone know what movement the Pierce is? Both needed stem and crown help, hands, crystals...

    Hi all! I am strictly a "budget" collector, so can't share the likes of what I see shared here - but I thought this recent $10 purchase was interesting! Key wind and set. Heavily brassed case. But otherwise a nice runner! I like how the dial back has serial number written on it. Evidently...

    A Few Questions On This Finger Bridge PW

    Hi All! Had a few questions on this generic KW/KS one that I just cleaned and oiled and which is running nicely. 1) The only stamp other than serial numbers is a cross or + with 646 on the bottom balance plate. Any idea if this is a model/calibre number or such? 2) Was it common for these to...

    2 Ingersoll Wrist Watches

    Hi all! Well - these two were certainly an adventure to get running. I've had them for a while-paid just a few dollars for them both at a flea mkt. The 17 jewel one is an HB 115 movement. It had an unhooked mainspring, a loose pallet jewel, and a tiny metal shard floating around in the...
