Re: C6 Replacement sapphire crystal

In my view you have three options: 1) Do Nothing - live with it. 20 buy a secondhand unit and use the crystal. You would need a press to fit the crystal if doing it yourself. 3) Find a replacement (non OEM) which may take a while but is likely to be available. Again you would need a press to fit if ...

Re: Unusual Service charge from 3rd party shop

In general the reversing wheels in 2824/SW200 units are the most common items to need attention. I have cleaned three sets from CW watches. I even posted the process on this forum with photos. Its a bit fiddly and you need the correct lubricants to do it which is why some just replace (about £30).

Re: Finance for Watches

Bought many, many items on 0% where I would not have if the offer was not available. I bought the Beast in the Jan sale for £51 per month over 12 months. I buy expensive video cards and video cameras too, many even come with cash back.

Re: What's Your Favorite Quartz CW Watch?

Cannot find a way to post an image the right way round! Even if I rotate the image on the desktop it still comes out wrong when uploaded.

Can you add an option for image rotation in the attach files screen?

Re: Can A cell phone magnetized a watch?

In general magnetised watches run fast as the magnetised hair spring coils attract and shorten the spring which makes it run fast. easy to correct with a demagnetiser.

Re: Bracelet: in need of.....

Had really good results as shown. Be very very careful with abrasive paper - only use for deep scratches and always try the scotch brite type pads first.

Re: Advice on servicing a CW Makaira

There is a rubber o ring gasket, does not need to be replaced unless damaged. The screws are not done up really tight, or they were not on my sample. To open mine I used the right size allen key, it fits snugly.

Re: Advice on servicing a CW Makaira

It seems to me this is a simple repair. It will be simple for the movement to be removed from the case and the crystal to be cleaned on the inner surface. While the movement is out the second hand can be checked for being seated correctly. The water resistance can be checked by a competent watch rep...
