  1. If it looks compressed or distorted, then it should be replaced.
  2. Either a , 371 or 395. The 371 will fit flush in the battery well. The 395 is a little thicker and also used for this Calibre.
  3. Buy from Cousins. If you can't, then give me a shout.
  4. Hi, Ilford Essex, here. 45 Years, At the Clock and Watch Benches. Shout, if you need me.
  5. With a small screwdrive, unscrew the screw nearest the visible section of the threaded winding stem. Turning the screw anticlockwise, one full turn. Whilst doing so apply a slight downward pressure on the screw. Maintain the downward pressure and at the same time, gently, tug the crown away from the watch case. If the crown isn't released, then further undo the screw. Another full turn. Don't be tempted to undo the screw many turns as the retaining lever attached to the screw may become free of the thread and you will have to strip the watch to reattach it. Hope this helps.
  6. Here is my Email address. Send me your Telephone number, then we can have a direct chat, regards Simon. essexclockandwatch@hotmail.com
  7. Hi, Lee. I would just service the watch. Keeping it as original as possible. Polish out a few of the glass scratches and clean bracelet. Replace pendant and caseback seals. Approx cost £265+ plus return postage. Hope this helps. Shout, if you need me. Regards Simon.
  8. Hi,Andy. Cousins lists it as ref: 088.0607 His are expensive, @ over £10. Are you able to measure the caseback. it would be cheaper if you could. ie. large and small diameter of the channel it sits in, and the thickness of the original gasket. Hope this helps. If I can be of any further help, give me a shout.

  10. Just a few questions. 1. Do you know that the new battery, is a good one. 2.How old is the watch. 3.Do you have any test equipment. 4.When was it last serviced The reason is doesn't work could be either mechanical or electrical. If you are still stuck I will look at it for you. A new module maybe the cheapest, long term solution. Approx £45 Shout if you need me. regards simon.

  16. Only with experience will you acquire the delicate touch required to make very fine adjustments to this type of regulator. If the watch is dry, or dirty, it will not react well to fine regulation. If you really want to achieve best accuracy firstly ensure the movement is completely clean and freshly lubricated. Playing with the regulator, is not the first step towards accuracy. Hope this helps.
  17. If you still need them. I will send you a couple . For the cost of postage.
