  1. Most recent addition to my Seiko stable, a Black Monster. required only a clean, lub, and the bezel repainting.
  2. Just pinged two of my watch back screws while changing the battery on my Raymond Weil 9826-2 dress watch. The slotted screw heads are approx 1.5 mm dia. Far to tiny for me to attempt to measure with my vernier gauge. I have had the watch for nearly tthirty years, and changed the battery many times without mishap, I must be getting old. Does any one know the correct size. Thankyou.
  3. Perseverance works , I now have time date month and day all working, I have no use for alarm so gave it a miss. The stop watch side works fine. I have had a lot of entertaiment for the £4 it cost. Thanks every one for your input.
  4. Only a one position crown, but yes today i found with it pulled out I could set the time and day. but of course this stops the analogue watch so you have to use another watch to set the digital time. Very handy havng the snooker to watch while I twiddle. I am getting there.slowly., thank you for your help
  5. Running out of combinations. I thought I had cracked it when I managed to set the time yesterday then at midnight it changed from 12 to 1AM..
  6. Of Japanese manufacture for chinese watch, I have had the movement out and no identifying marks. Online searches reveal many others seeking information. I will post a picture.
  7. Does any one have knowledge of setting up the digital side of this watch. It is not intuitive or maybe it is damaged. The analogue side is working well.
  8. Help required. I have just picked up a broken now running Kinetic watch, The watch is a Coutura 5M62-OANO. any one know where I can buy a gasket set for this watch. It requires a stem O/ring Pusher O/ring, and a rear cover seal. Thank you for reading.
  9. I bought a three part blacking kit of the net. That was four years ago I have done quite a few watch cases, some screws etc..and various parts.. Basically a caustic bath, then wash clean The blacking tank then wash clean, finally a dewatering oil which gives it the shine, then air dry. Temperatures need to be around 25C. I usually stand the tubs in hot water to do this.. The polishing of the bright steel is the hardest, if you don't do it properly yhe flaws will show in the end finish
  10. I won this on ebay in January, it was advertised as water damaged., dozens of folks bid on it, and in the end I ended up paying twice what I expected. I stripped it and managed to get rid of the rust, but there is still some residual staining of some parts.. The case I took back to bright steel, and then re-blacked it. The watch is now fully functional and looking good. I have no idea of the manufacturer.
