  1. Does anyone know what would cause the hands to move around perfectly when adjusting with the crown but when the watch is running only the second hand moves and nothing else? Seems very odd that they all move when adjusting..
  2. can you explain to me how to open it? I still haven't been able to
  3. there's no way I could open it with the state it was in
  4. so this is after an initial dip in some rust remover gel, and a good scrub - it resembles metal again and not a ball of rust at least..will let it soak some more overnight.. next thing i'll do is figure out how to open it to see what state the movement is in...
  5. because they're just cheap components and movements with a fancy badge stuck on them basically
  6. I have some rust removing solution now, I will update this thread with pictures of post rust treatment..it's all a bit of fun :D
  7. that's an absolutely beautiful combination!
  8. I have pretty small wrists and i've ended up buying watches that look ridiculous on me but I can't help myself sometimes..is that ridiculous enough
  9. This was amongst a pile of old watchmaking tools from the 1920s and 1930s that I picked up recently. How would I go about removing this rust? How do I open the back to see the state of the movement? It's pretty severely damaged but seems like it could be a fun project
  10. How on earth do you get a stubborn snapback off without making any marks or scratches? I had a cheapo tool which I upgraded to an official Seiko snapback opener but it's still the same! They're either too stiff or the blade just sort of slices into the watch and doesn't open it.. This is the tool i'm using now..
  11. Can someone help me out here? I have a retro Casio AE-30 and there's no sound. I tried putting a small spring in the hole circled but still no alarm sound. Where should the spring go? Thanks thanks!
  12. just seen your one on the movement thread...I love the strap you have on it...any more pics?
  13. I should have taken a picture when I changed the battery and fitted a fresh gasket yesterday! I'll see what I can do ;) I don't know if anyone else has noticed but on the dial near the 1 there's a mark on the edge of the dial..apart from that the watch is very clean..is it dirt do you reckon? I would have thought if it was rust or corrosion there'd be evidence of it inside or outside the watch but it's very clean apart from that..
