I have a beautiful like-new vintage Orient diver that cost me $50 in a very lucky auction. It is not keeping good time and I got a repair quota of $150. I was thinking of buying a quartz movement and replacing the auto one. I don't have any experience but I have good hands and patience and some cheap tools as well. I managed to take off the case back all by myself ;)
- Does anyone know if this is possible?
- What movement could replace it? This movement has a quick day change button but I don't mind if it will be left useless, so any day-date would be fine by me (the 4 o'clock crown controls the inner bezel).
- Is my tool set enough for the job or am I missing anything?
Any comments welcomed.
