    Benrus AS 1906 can't set backwards

    Received a Benrus with AS 1906 movement in non-working condition. Performed disassembly and everything appeared proper besides needing a good cleaning and oiling. Although, someone had worked on the watch previously because there was a screw missing from the Calendar works cover plate! After...

    Day Date function on Benrus AS 1906?

    Hi folks - I was given this Benrus day date wristwatch with an AS 1906 movement. Question is how the DAY and DATE are supposed to be displayed. As the hours pass, the DAY disappears from view before the next day appears over many hours... It does not 'snap' to the next day of the week they...

    Zenith Allegro - ESA 9162 battery?

    Hey everyone - My Dad got this watch back in the 1970's. I remember him wearing it and I liked hearing the 'humming' sound it made. He wore it until he couldn't get a battery for it anymore. I guess that is when the Mercury batteries went extinct. I read that the Original battery was a 343...
