Re: Watch Parts Wanted

Hi!

Im in need of a... watch part :). I've got a nice Illinois 18s No 106 in an oresilver case (the best one I could find myself). The watch looks nice, but.. an oresilver case doesn't exactly match this movement for quality reasons, so I'd like to re-case it properly. In this very case properly means exactly a Wadsworth Pilot 18s GF case and no other. That is because with the movement there were devastated remains of a Wadsworth Pilot case and I'd like to restore it this way (to the condition the previous owner had it :) ). So please, if you happen to have a Wadsworth pilot 18s case and you're willing to sell it to Poland (PayPal preferred) please p.m. me!

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

I am search for some Gruen Quadron Hands. I have attached pictures of the dials that are being considered for my restoration. I do need the hands that are not luminous. I hope someone can help me. It is very difficult to source hands for a 90 year old watch. The other question would be if I found hands that were styled very similar, what hold size would I need? I will impatiently wait for your ideas. I am having Kirk Rich dial print me a new dial

I don't think anybody uses this forum..If this were the antique radio forum Im a member of,I would have all kinds of helpful people giving replies and advice..this does not seem to be a very friendly forum and I will not be using it any longer.... I didnt know watch repair folks were so hard to get information from.I see all kinds of views but no one takes a moment to answer. I guess I will take up jigsaw puzzles

Watch Parts Wanted

This is a thread for parts that are needed. If you have questions about watches or repairs, post them in the appropriate section. No one was rude to you or unfriendly to you, so saying that is quite uncalled for. There are a great deal of members on this forum, all of which are friendly. I am sorry, there is no one to cater to your every need within four minutes of your three consecutive posts.

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

I would assume if one was not answered in their search for a part.Is because they don,t have the part.
You may go many years not finding a particular part, but patience is a virtue.

It's not usually a good idea to put a balance complete from one American pocket watch into another American pocket watch, as the serial number is inscribed on the bottom of the balance wheel, so you would have a non-numbers matching watch. But, if it is your only option, according to my Hamilton Part Catalog, a balance from any 16s double roller movement (EXCEPT 992B and 950B) movement should fit.

What caliber exactly is your Quadron? We will need to know the length, also (measured from the center of the hole to the end of the hand).

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

Need a good thermal compensated complete balance wheel with hairspring for 17j elgin, do not mind paying for a whole parts movement for that.

Mine is #43615956, PS: This uses dual table roller. Old balance was mixture of destruction: This have steel hairspring with white alloy balance, nuts! Balance wheel alloy is scratched up, bowed (tested on truing caliper) and screws were filed all around on one edge (hidden from view) that accounts for running seconds fast every few hours. Also another reason I need complete balance is the dual roller is chewed up and staked to tighten up too loose on the staff fix. :(

Cheers, Watchfixer

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

I have a bunch of mainsprings and would like to offer a couple trades for mainsprings I need. Here are the mainsprings I have, and would like to do a swap for some mainsprings I need. These are all Elgin, in various sizes. A couple of them I still need, but many of them I do not and maybe you do?

The mainsprings I need are:
1919 Elgin, 12s, 17j, Model 3
1920 Elgin, 16s, 17j, Model 13
1927 Elgin, 16s, 17j, Model 7
1881 Hampden, 18s, 11j, Model 1, mainspring #1696
1890 Hampden/Dueber, 18s, 17j, model 3, mainspring #1696
1883 Waltham, 18s, 7j, Model, main spring 2205
1908 Waltham, 16s, 15j

I am not sure what mainspring # some of these take. But, these are my watches that need a new spring. Would anybody having these springs be willing to trade for springs I have that you might need? Below is pictured the springs I have.

http://s1238.photobucket.com/albums/ff490/Tudorp/Watches/Mainsprings/

The mainsprings I need are:
1920 Elgin, 16s, 17j, Model 13
1927 Elgin, 16s, 17j, Model 7
1883 Waltham, 18s, 7j, Model, main spring 2205

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

I have a dual dial (partners) timepiece with a Waltham 37s movement. I am in need of part #840 (sleeve) or the whole unit of the stem as pictured below. It is my understanding that the part # 840 is specific to the dual dial but I'm not completely certain of that.

Thanks for any help with this.

Hello,
I am searching for plate-side (foot) balance pivot hole and end jewels for my Model 1883 Waltham, serial number 5,791,428, Grade No. 15 with 15 jewels movement.
Thanks,

Someone may come along with an offer for one... but, if you'd really like one, just contact either Bob McKnight, Bryan Eyring, or Brian Cavanaugh. They have large selections and reasonable prices. Their contact info is in the Part Sources sticky.

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

I'm in need of an unthreaded sleeve (they're shaped like little tophats) for my Illinois wristwatch in a Keystone case. I've seen the sleeves in Newall stem/sleeve sets. I think the one I need listed as a Waltham and is original part number 186, 187, 188, 189, 190 or 191. It's about 1.75mm in diameter (not the thin flange at the end, but the diameter of the body) and about 2.37mm long.
Does anyone have one (or a selection) they would part with? Or do does anyone know of a source for these? I see sets do come up for sale on eBay from time to time, but I haven't seen lucky enough to win one, yet.

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

i need a 7733 fly back lever , but not the rounded end type , the one i need has a pointed end set at 90" , possibly a later type, how can i tell if its a valjoux 7733 or an eta 7733 ?

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

If it was an ETA, it would be marked "ETA", but I don't believe that ETA ever made any 7733's (they did make 7750's however). If it's a Valjoux it should be marked with an "R" inside of a shield.
If it were my watch, I'd contact all the parts suppliers mentioned in the "parts sources" sticky, and either actually talk to someone on the phone, or send an email (with a picture), and explain what you need. Jules Borel lists them as discontinued, so you can skip them.

Are you sure you tried ALL the suppliers?

Here is the email conversation I had with McCaw's this morning....
Is it possible for you to send a pic of the old one?

It reads from the bottom up. Anyway- it appears they have at least one style of the part in stock.

They emailed back with a picture. This is the part they have. flyback lever 7733.jpg
