  1. Looks a nice clean watch , get it serviced and it will carry on for years , it's already doing well for about 53 years old , it's obviously been well cared for , your future wife should be well pleased with it
  2. Pretty much the same but the one you've ordered is the wider blade , would recommend getting the narrower blade one as well , especially for the money they cost. like narrow one in link below https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Watch-Back-Cover-Case-Opener-Remover-Battery-Change-Watchmaker-Knife-Repair-Tool/132900668046?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D57477%26meid%3D1e2839aa4d7042aca8d53ed1957d1b8b%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D153061187740%26itm%3D132900668046&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
  3. I use this type and it’s never let me down Ever , not expensive in fact really cheap but I’d advise the narrower blade like this one and keep it filed down and sharp. This video might help
  4. All done , thanks @simon2
  5. Looks like an Indian special to me I’m afraid. The dial and hands look wrong and the movement definitely is , looks like they have bodged up the ratchet wheel as well , sorry
  6. Many thanks Simon I shall order one today regards andy
  7. Thanks Simon I do have a press , does the book say if that crystal comes with a gold ring around it ? many thanks
  8. Hi Simon I've got a friends Seiko 7T62-0fd0 that needs a new crystal , on Cousins site they list 2 the 310p03hn02 which is obsolete and the 310po3hb0a which they have in stock , I have searched through the internet for reference on the codes but can't find out if the obsolete crystal has been succeeded by the in stock one or whether they are different? Found out what a lot of the Ref codes mean but not the end parts (the different bits)? The crystal in the watch has a gold ring on the actual crystal (doesn't come off) so if the replacement doesn't it's going to look a little odd i would imagine. It's £20 plus vat etc etc and as we know Cousins won't take it back if its not right , so if anyone can advise as to whether it will be ok or not that would be most appreciated TIA Andy
  9. Pretty much agree with everything @eezy has said there ,Eta 2750 were also used in the CWC watches which the case looks very similar , I think the numbers on the case are to perfect to have been redone and the dial looks brand new , so as mentioned its been cobbled together to look like a Hamilton imo too
  10. My only Tressa , apologies for poor iPhone pic
  11. Cousins do 22mm silicone for £4.50 plus vat p&p etc , i'm not familiar with the strap in question so i don't know if the Cousins ones fit the bill but they are orange and silicone Had another look and they even have orange silicone for £1.95 so probably worth a look hope that helps
  12. Probably on the inside of caseback , that’s where they usually are and yes 375 is 9ct
  13. As already mentioned they wear very comfortably on the wrist due to their design I believe that was one of the selling points in the omega add back in the day. I would say £500 was at the top/ high end as they generally go for reasonable money as they are a bit of a marmite model, but it’s been serviced so that counts for a bit of the higher asking price love mine it was one of my first omegas
  14. Mark is very good imo , I’ve been a member of the watch repair forum for a few years now and found the info invaluable. Haven’t done the courses though , good luck I’m sure you’ll enjoy it
