  1. Hi Simon, hope you are well. I found this set Bergeon 30081-P05 Set Of 5 Watchmakers Ergonomic Screwdrivers - HS30081-P05 for £45. Are they with the cost. Are the tips much more precisely finished? Is the steel stronger? Will I need all? I find I’m only using the 2 smallest most of the time, so should I buy separates? Ta, B

  3. Hi All, I’ve acquired a 70/80s Beltime quartz solar chrono watch. It’s missing a battery(s). The orifice is approx 11.5mm Dia. approx 4.2mm deep. Any ideas which battery and do I need 1 or 2? Cheers, B
  4. Hi, I’m new to all this and the forum. I accidentally posted this an hour ago to this category to all. This evening I started to work on a gold plated 60s (guess) Mu Du wrist watch. I have removed back (screw type) and started to ‘try’ and remove the stem screw. If I pull the crown/stem out and in I can see the stem screw turn back and forth slightly (as it should), but I unscrew it. If I put a lot of force on it, it will pull the stem/crown back in to normal position, which I think is ok and shows the screw moves. But I cannot get it to turn any more. Have you ever faced the same issu
  5. Thanks, is it possible my ‘value’ screwdrivers can’t put enough torque? Was thinking of taking the Bergeon plunge. Will it help? Any other ideas anyone?

  7. Hi all, just wanted to say hi. I’ve just joined. I’ve been collecting watches for a few years, but during lockdown I’ve started vintage (40s to 70s) dismantling and maintenance. I find I have a new question every week, so I hope I’ve come to the right place. Looking forward to chatting with you all. Boyd
