    Case screw for vintage Waltham 12S

    Just wondering if any of you out there have a spare or two lying around for sale. Just had my late grandfather's watch overhauled. It's runng great and looks nice with the new crystal. This is the only flaw remaining and would like to remedy ASAP. Thanks guys!

    Screw assortments are sold on the 'Bay. I assume the assortments are metric but some may not be ?!?!!??

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Otto Frei says that they have all the screws for a Waltham 12 the problem is that you need to know the three didgit part number. Perhaps someone could look it up.

    Thanks. Will check OttoFrei. eBay is too hit or miss.

    Rob, thank you so much. I was able to locate the three digit number on page two... 146. I will be sending OttoFrei an e-mail update on my order with this info. O.F. will alllow you to use the name of the part as long as you provide the watch's serial number, but you can never be too careful.... especially at those prices.
