    Putting in a new quartz movement

    Hello!

    Typically I am one who always brings watches to a trusted watchmaker but I want to try my hand at a low-stakes operation (meaning low-value items at stake) and I could use some advice.

    I have a 34mm watch case with dial, hands (still attached), crystal, crown, and broken stem. How would I go about finding parts and an inexpensive quartz movement that would work?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Putting in a new quartz movement

    Measure the space inside the case where the movement will fit. Or the movement plate you have. Once youvhave the size in “linges” you can order a new China/Japan movement. Replacement will come with stem.

    Do you own drawings of the existing movement? So you should compare the relevant dimensions for the proposed new movement. Diameter movement height and distance of stem measured from dial support.

    Biggest problem will be that you probably will not be able to fit the dial feet positions to a new movement.. Same with the date window..

    Re: Putting in a new quartz movement

    Thank you both! I don't have any idea what movement was originally in this but I am assuming it was swiss and probably an ETA. I'll measure the inner dimensions and take into account the dial feet

    Just an idea: why would someone write 954.101 on a dummyplate?

    Curious to see dialside and caseback as well.

    954.101 is an old ESA number, not in production anymore. Curiously, it shares a stem with the ETA 2892.

    Perhaps this is good to find drawings to fix the status quo or to use the drawings for the new spec
