Lost screws from guard!

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

A workmate bought this off fleabay some time ago, Both the screws came adrift and he lost them although he managed to find the actual guard!

He contacted Parnis by email, They told him they made two different grades of watches and that there was no warranty with the stuff they sold on Ebay and wouldn't supply parts :( (I think it's because there's no comeback on fleabay after a certain time has elapsed!)..

I have found some brass screws that are an imperial thread (Presume the lost ones are metric), they will start in the holes but before I cut them down and force them in would anyone know where I could get a couple of 'proper' ones from please?

He loves the watch but won't use it without the guard for fear of snapping the shaft by catching the large crown on something!

Cheers Nigel, I think I just found two that will do though on the belt clip of one of my Cree torches!! :laugh:

They screw in to the holes on the case but the heads are slightly to large in dia so the diamond needle files whist rotated in the drill should do the job!! :thumbsup:

Wasn't sure if the threads were long enough but when I pushed them in from the opposite side, There was enough, They will receive a coat of threadlock before they're screwed home!! (Well, The wife's nail varnish!!)

 

Cheers, John :)
