    Hamilton quartz chronograph

    I own this watch for over 20 years and bought it already used. It is Swiss quartz movement and the chronograph movement just died. My "man of the art" can't do anything about it but align the 2 main arms of the chrono to 0.... Any chance to find anywhere this type of movement (4 arms)?
    Thank you!

    if you know the movement, search it, watch part places should come up.
    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    Only go happy people like me try to repair them but you need to take the watch to a watchmaker so they can order a replacement movement. Inside is probably a ETA 251.262 movement or similar.

    There are replacement movements with the same format that will fit so you will get a modern version. Also there are old stock of the original movement that can be found if one is lucky.

    Did you change the battery yourself? If you did you can show us a picture of the movement as you know how to remove the back.

    First you need to know what movement is inside as they differ in size and height then you can start searching for a replacement.

    Here is a ETA 251.262 but you must be sure this is what's inside or if it's compatible.

    The date wheel is different from your watch but one just swapps out the one on the new movement for the one on the old so that the date numbers are in the right place.

    Et voila! My watch shop replaced the movement, even changed the dates which was orientated differently, a new band ... As new!
