Hi everyone. This is my first post. I found this Hamilton Rodney 748 for fifty cents and the darn thing started ticking after i wound the broken stem! Well anyway, I was going to get the stem & crown replaced but look at this hole! Is there any way to fix this?? It's 10k rolled gold.
Second question. If I was going to buy a generic stem; does it have to be specifically mechanical vs quartz? I mean I know it's a tap 10 stem but what specifics do I need to know when searching for one?
