Re: Waltham parts required please.

I don't have a set of hands but I know a good hands restorer that can make them like new if that would work. His name is Marty and lived in Niagra Falls. I can get details for you if interested.

Re: Hamilton 992 Center Wheel

Yes, They are Gold plated and all the 16s Hamilton's that used them were the same part #, so it was used in the higher end watches, 950,950E, 960,961,992,994,etc.

I have one.

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

Terry,
For most American pocket watches, stems need to be fit to the case, taking into account the sleeve, crown and length of the pendant. Do you have a broken stem that you can send to your supplier for matching? Or, is it missing? Do you have the crown?

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

Dave, the crown and stem are missing. I have wound the watch and it seem to run nicely. I just broke off the hour hand so I guess a parts watch would be the thing to look for. Terry

Re: Watch Parts Wanted

From the photo, looks like you may also be missing the pendant cap? You're probably going to have to send the case out to have these parts fit. If you are going to keep doing this, you may want to invest in some assortments of stems, sleeves and crowns.

Re: Ball-Waltham 3rd Wheel

Is there any difference between the Ball-Waltham wheel and the regular Waltham model 1899 wheel? Certainly the Waltham wheel is an easy one to find.

I was kind of hoping someone would chime in on just that. I do not know if they are the same. If they are that would be great.

Re: Need 60hr. motor barrel screws (3) for Bunn Special

Maybe it's a bit OT, but I once said (or I think I did) that it would be great to compare the interchangability of Ball Waltham and regular Waltham movements' parts. Could make things easier in the future ;)

Re: Need 60hr. motor barrel screws (3) for Bunn Special

I would say that all the parts are interchangeable except for some things like regular springs ,dial,hands, etc.

With Hamilton -Balls it is the same.The regulator whip spring and HS stud are his own.

Webb Ball wasn't going to start producing gears, jewels etc. when there was nothing wrong with the movements he was selling as Ball's, so he did what any entrepreneur would do and add the least amount of expense to make it his own creation.

FYI the 3rd wheel in a Waltham 16s 7j. model 1908 was the same as the 3rd wheel from my Ball-Waltham 17j model 1899. The Ball is running again. Thank you to anyone who looked for this wheel. I found it in a non working movement I bought to practice on.

Re: Need Bulova Accutron Crystal #1439

Hello, I'm looking for a Bulova crystal #1439. This is for an Accutron 218 case #3050.

If not, any information about this crystal (diameter, or corresponding G-S crystal number, etc.) that might help me track down a proper replacement would be greatly appreciated. I've been looking (and asking) around and haven't had any luck yet. Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Need Bulova Accutron Crystal #1439

Hello:

I have one of those cases in front of me and see that it is what is often referred to as the "TV" or "CK" case. I put a crystal in one recently and used a GS PHD 335 as I recall. I measured the upright portion of the crystal on the one in front of me and see that it is about 33.2 which would indicate that the flanged portion probably would measure 33.5. If you have the old crystal or the case in front of you it can be measured and to confirm the 335 measurement prior to ordering the crystal. The PHD crystal configuration will match the Bulova crystal nicely in my experience with this case.

Regards

Re: Need Bulova Accutron Crystal #1439

Thank you for the reply! You have indeed correctly ID'ed the case and your measurements of the bezel are consistent with mine.

This morning I found this crystal source on Ebay, where I can select one listed as "GS PHD 33 1/2 (33.9mm)"
Is this the same crystal you used? $5.49 is pretty reasonable so, if yes, I'll order one straight away!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/GS-PHD-HI-D...hash=item2eea64005d:m:mqDAw-dIGWEUSM9auX7GZkw

A little more back story and another question (apologies if I ramble on too much):

The crystal that came with the watch was not installed when it arrived (the watch was sold "as is / for parts" and still a good deal despite the issues I've had so far). Thinking the crystal simply needed to be reinstalled, I used my bulova crystal press and put it back in. Sadly it fell out with a gentle touch. My thinking is that someone intended to replace the crystal but obtained one that was too small. The largest diameter (at the base of the flange) of this crystal is 33.2. You have confirmed for me that the flange needs to be a bit larger in diameter, but I wasn't sure how much larger it needed to be, until now :)

Question: As you know, this case has a wide chapter ring with black hour markings on it. This part was also loose when the watch was received. I'm a little confused by how it is to be secured to the bezel. The ring, when in place, makes the bezel very shallow, leaving only a little room for the crystal - and so I imagine that less of the bezel will be holding the crystal than in other more ordinary cases. Is this consistent with your experience? I was wondering if the genuine bulova crystal was somehow thin enough at the edge to slide between the bezel and chapter ring (rather than on top) and thus sit deeper, but it would have to be very thin for this work I think.

At the moment, I'm thinking of adding a few drops of GS crystal cement to keep the chapter ring in place and a few drops for added security for the crystal.

Thank you again for your comments!

Re: Need 60hr. motor barrel screws (3) for Bunn Special

For my next, probably impossible, request... I need a mainspring for an ultra thin Patek Philippe pocket watch. Width is 0.90, length is 15 inches. Hole end.

I see ofrei has it in a tongue end so, if necessary, I'll get that and test my mainspring hole making skills. But, thought I'd ask if anyone has a hole end first.
