General Interest
  

There are different types of movements:

  • quartz; battery operated
  • electronic; combination of mechanical & quartz, battery operated, most from the 80's
  • mechanical "manual wind"; needs to be wound every day
  • mechanical "automatic"; is, when worn, wounded by the movement of your wrist.
  • chronograph; movement with "count functions" for minutes, hours  and even 1/10 sec. Movement can be quartz, manual wind or automatic

How do I identify what movement is inside my watch?

  • Ask a watchmaker for advise if you don't have the proper tools, to avoid damages to your watch!
  • You will need to open the back (screw-down or flip-open)
  • Check the caliber (or have a watchmaker do it for you). It can be in a few different places;
    • for mechanical watches it's usually under the balancewheel, under the escapewheel, or on the bridge,
    • for quartz it's underneath the battery or at the edge of the movement.
    • Sometimes it can only be found on the dial side of the movement.

Parts for your repair & interchangability

Movement parts  

When you know the caliber of the movement and you know what part you need, search in the store search box. For example, when you need a winding stem for Omega caliber 561;

  • Search on "stem Omega 561".
  • No results? Search on "Omega 561". The stem might be listed under a part-number in stead of a name.
  • Still no result? In lots of cases an earlier movement has been used as "base caliber". In this case Omega 550 is the base caliber (we can look this up for you) and the 561 caliber uses the stem of the Omega 550 movement.
  • With that knowledge, do a search on "Omega 550 stem", or on "Omega 550"
  • Does it look like we don't have it? Please use the Ask seller a question link (in each listing near the bottom) and ask us if we can check for interchangability for your needed part. In this case the stem is used in 6 different Omega calibers, we might be able to help you or direct you to the right place.

A good example of interchangability: The Balance staff that is used in Girard Perregaux caliber 81, is the same as the one used in Mido caliber 816, and in AS 1170.

We are one of the few sellers where you can buy *one* winding stem for your repair-job. Read the description well as we sometimes photograph the original package for the sale of one single part.

Hands

We are able to look up the needed size for your (pocket) watch for a large range of watch movements. Please use the Ask seller a question (in each listing near the bottom) and tell us the caliber movement you need the hands for.

Crowns

At this time we have some brand-crowns for sale, if we know the reference numbers it's listed, otherwise we measured them with the digital cappilar.

(Pocket) watch crystals

We have a large Selection Sternkreuz, pocket watch glass crystals in a huge range of sizes, bullseye crystals and odd shaped crystals. You will need to ask a watchmaker what exact size you need for your watch.

What books do we have to help you on your search?

  • The Bestfit encyclopedia of Watch Material, part 1 and 2
  • Seiko watch parts cataloque (the old mechanical calibers)
  • Several Omega part books
  • One Tissot part book
  • 6 books about mainsprings (Ronda, GR and more)
  • Several books about ESA and ETA
  • Two maps with documentation on AS, Arogno, Aurore, Bettlach, EB, FHF, Felsa, Fleurier, landeron, Peseux, Venus, Valjoux, Unitas and more.
  • Rolex parts documentaion
  • and much more......
