The watch is complete except for the hairspring. The old one is mangled and broken.
I will do the work myself. A good cleaning should be all it needs, once the hairspring is repaired.
Does anyone have any specific info on this watch, or point me to info I can look up?
I have this little pocket watch (I would incorrectly call it a 3/0 size). It says A. Nicolet on the dust cover, with a serial number. The watch number matches. Obviously, the watch needs restoration, but I am wondering if that would be worth undertaking. The case is marked 0.800, with hallmarks...
I have a 14k cased Omega Seamaster. The case reference is KM6610 and is a one-piece case. The movement a caliber 550.
I have the crystal off but am having trouble with the crown.
I have searched and from what I have read, this is likely a two-piece stem and the outer portion should simply pull...
My daily wear is a 1955 Bulova 23 Jewel six-adjustment self-winding . It keeps near perfect time, and has for the six years I've been wearing it. I cleaned and oiled it once. I guess it is coming due for another servicing.:rolleyes:
...and I believe that this watch would sell for around $700...
Thanks again for all the replies. :smile:
Kent asked for the serial number. Attached is a photo of the movt. The serial number is 882384.
Also, from the document that Don posted, the dial does look just like #122, with the exception of this one has a tent in the seconds bit, like the one at...
Thanks for the info Greg! :D
I personally haven't seen another one, and I really like these dome model 2-tone movements. I try to look at all I run across. (I think I have 4 now...the rest are 15 jewel).
Sounds like the pallet jewel is outside of the fork. It is a simple process to put it back in, but the question then remains of what caused it in the first place :confused:...which could lead to a much longer path.
Here is one of those "even stranger beasts" that Greg eluded to. All three covers, and the bezel are solid gold. Likely 10k, even though the inside back is marked "14". The frame is absolutely gold-filled, with some brass showing. The covers pass the "flex" test with flying colors.
Any tips? I have a truing caliper that has a broken balance staff pivot in one of the holes. I tried ultrasonic to wiggle it out, with no luck. I thought about Alum, except the caliper is steel as well. There has to be a trick that I am missing.:?|
