    Re: has anyone

    Well, its not in New Zealand anymore. I imagine it will turn up somewhere exotic sooner or later.

    I don't know why I didn't catch that little subjective, variable on the first couple of reads: exotic

    Trim and pithy's definitions might vary a little on this. Would Trim find Hoboken, NJ "exotic"? "Exotic" evokes images of Katmandu or Zanzibar for pithy.

    CamMan, the whole saga is contained in this thread - so you don't even have to use the advanced search function - but since we have now entered into an age of increased civility on the forum, it would be my pleasure to report to you that:

    The tour watch is a goldtone, "vintage" diver style, Briel (sp?, help) featuring a unique compass mounted on the crystal and is powered by a 2824. CamMan, pithy has just checked the records and noticed that you (and a few others) haven't signed up yet to host the watch . . .

    No Trim wouldn't find Hoboken exotic

    I think the net cultural difference is significant. Also, spices

    Re: syntax

    I finally found some time to work on the watch. This is how I got it

    As we all the know it has crown & stem issues. I decided to tackle this problem since it is silly to wear a watch if you cant set the correct time .

    I tried to install the stem as is but it did not work. So, lets open her up....



    ...... and here is the problem. The check spring is riding over the pull out piece.


    After assembling the movement everything worked except the quick set feature. So I went in again and found this....

    In the quick set position, the castle wheel does not engage with the intermediate wheel fully. I am unable to correct this. Since the watch is still usable without this feature I decided to leave it alone.

    Ready for casing...


    And cased up. Not the least bit water resistant, but ready for a gentle outing perhaps



    I work from home & also keep an eye on the little one during the day. So the opportunities to go out are few. But lets see what we can do

    Nice work! We have a watch that tells the time now? How novel. I'll assume it has been regulated into COSC standards?

    It still needs a service. I did not service it since the crown is missing most of the gasket. The case tube is of a rather large diameter. I hope some one will have the right crown for this watch.

    Re: syntax

    I was just kidding - you've done the watch a great service. I've got a bunch of old crowns, so no promises, but I'll certainly take a look.
