It's an Orient Jim, but...

Recommended Posts

Not one I can find details of.

Purchased from eBay for a bargain price - but seems I need a few bits to get it 'fixed up, looking sharp'.

Anyone able to identify the model please?

Having real trouble getting this working properly. The pusher at 2 does indeed change the date at 3, but the Day at 9 just doesn't seem to change. The stem seems to 'skip' past the first notch (which I suspect would change the day), but I have no idea how to find the correct replacement, and having taking the watch apart, and removed the date/day disc, I'm not confident that it is all back together correctly.

The alternative is to replace the entire movement, but even that is proving nigh-on impossible to source.

Can anyone help?

Further developments.

I recently purchased an old Ricoh with what appeared to be a similar movement (pusher at 2, stem at 3), with a view to swapping out the Orient one (which I fear I may have broken), but realised that the date/day on the Ricoh are both at 3, where as the Orient is different, obviously.

Spot the newbie to watch repairs/making.
