    Watch stem replacement question

    I need a stem and crown for a Durowe INT 451 movement. I was able to get thread size 1.1/0.9 and a number from Roland Ranfft's site. I.e. (W2404/W2875). But I don't see this number system when I go Ofrei or other parts supplier. Can these numbers be used to order exact parts? From where? No experience with installing stems so I apologize if this question doesn't give adequate information or seems obvious. Thanks

    As I understand, numbering system on Mr.Ranfft's data base is proprietary and is not applicable to any other systems.

    You can try Jules Borel, see if they have the movement listed, then you can view their parts list.Cheers, Ed
