    help id this movement

    This is from a oysterdate.

    I want one of you guys to help me id what movement this is.

    Does this movement look original or franken ?

    I plan of purchasing this..If something looks odd to someone else I want to know now or rather than wait and let my watchmaker find it. Which will take at least 5-7 days from now.

    More likely a Rolex 1225 with missing regulator screw:

    Thanks roland,

    I cant believe i overlook that. I hope this is an easy part to replace and doesnt have any mechanical issue. I did this deal mostly on buying the seller first then the watch. I hope I not in for a ton of pain.

    Hi Xspect,

    it is actually no "screw" but only called so as it looks alike. It is a part with
    a screw head, and a notch to move the teeth of the regulator, simply friction
    fit in the hole on the balance cock.

    But you're right, it is not actually necessary - just an assistance for regulation.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft
