ETA 2782 winding stem wanted

Recommended Posts

Hi all - I'm trying to repair botch together an old Adina divers watch that's been sitting in my parts/spares drawer for the last few years. I've had the watch for years & finally decided to try & do something with it. Last time I wore it I seem to remember that it worked & kept reasonable time, unfortunately the already marginal threads on the case tube/crown finally decided to give up the ghost so I had to wear the watch with the crown unscrewed :(  I'm pretty sure that the date is stuck as well (i can live with that though). I've stripped the watch down (not the movement!) & have managed to change the case tube & screw down crown for a generic R*l*x one that I had left over from another project (for some reason I bought 2 & only used 1).

Anyway upon removing the stem I've found that the end of it is twisted therefore I was wondering if anyone had a spare?? The movement is definitely the ETA2782 (stamped under the balance wheel) I've looked on Cousins (I'm not registered on there but nothing comes up in a search). I've also looked on Ebay & the only stem I can find on there seems to be for a 2770 movement. It comes up when I search for "ETA2782 stem"  so I wonder if it will fit both movements (the 2770 & 2782) .....does anyone Know? If it does fit I'll buy that & stop wasting everyone's time :laugh: 

Photos will be posted if/when I get the watch up & running. It really is quite a battered thing (faded bezel & heavily scratched caseback) but it's got hooded lugs, a domed acrylic crystal & a cool 2 tone dial. Worth using/wearing I think.

 Please send me a pm through the forum if you can help - I'm obviously happy to pay for the correct part :thumbs_up:

When you say twisted , do you mean the square section , if so that was normal on some eta stems , can’t remember the technical name for it , but if it is that bit it’s ok

Yeah the square section bit at the end - I thought it had been twisted whilst winding an old, in need of a service (as this one probably is) movement. Ta for the info & I'll have a go at refitting it/putting the watch back together tomorrow:biggrin: Thanks again :clap:
