  3. It was advertised as unused and the crown showed no signs of wear apart from the defect! To get them is one problem but to get a defective one makes the second problem! You are right, if they are found used then there would be no logical reason to see them off a watch! Finding them in capsule packs is ultimately rare and also very expensive often even more so than the watch itself A faulty internal clutch says it ALL!!

    What Omega are you wearing today?

    Really nice, let me know if you decide to sell it!
  5. Looking to shorten this side of the raffles bracelet by 2 links. There are 4 fixed links so I plan to directly hook the fixed links to the clasp. However i have no idea how to remove and reinstall the rivet. Can anyone help? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Sounds like a defective clutch in the crown, which is odd considering its new, did you purchase it new in blister or loose? Gen crowns which are sold loose are usually defective, and only available for money as they have been replaced with new due to a faulty internal clutch.

  9. This must be the 3 rd post in a month with technical issues! Very embarrassing! Have a new 7.0mm crown which does nothing upon turning it in either direction ! Sometimes it just moves the hands a bit but then keeps slipping! i recall reading something on this on another forum years ago! A guy named "Maddox" who seemed very cluey mentioned something about how he repaired them, but I couldn't locate the link? Maybe some of our guys here being good at puttng square pegs into round holes may have some other suggestions! just dissapointed!

    Teach me, the 1570 caliber (1675)

    Parts needed to convert 1570 w/date to GMT: #8038 - center second pinion 5.70mm #8037 - Cannon Pinion 3.39mm #8039 - hour wheel with double toothing 2.44mm #8040 - 24hr wheel 1.41mm #8035 - Calendar Wheel nut #8036 - Date Jumper #8006 - Yoke for cam #8008 - spring for cam yoke #8011 - stud for cam #8030 - Center wheel with Cannon Pinion #8034 - Calendar Wheel 8034, 8035, and 8011 are in a grouping on the Rolex sheets. You can also find all the GMT parts on a parts list for the 1565GMT. GMT parts are the same for 1565GMT and 1575GMT movements. The calendar ring (spacer) must also be changed. There is more than one p/n for them...7956, 8037. Center second pinion #8038 is not necessary if you can find a sweep second hand with a long tube. https://rwg.cc/topic/114671-rolex-1575-gmt-movement-questions https://rwg.cc/topic/141303-cal-1570-gmt-tell-me-if-i-m-wrong/ https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=rolex+1575+gmt+parts

    GEN Tube on JF 16610 - Questions

    If the case is not machined for a gasket between the case tube and case, cutting the shoulder off the case tube is a good fix. Might want to check WR if you plan to take it in water. I have had to cut a few cases to allow for the gasket but it is not much fun. You have to mount the case in a table vise, line up the case tube hole with the cutter, and cut the gasket seat with a milling bit in a milling machine. Imho a drill press might not be very precise for this. The set-up takes longer than the cutting. I looked for the cutter but I 'straightened up' my shop and can not find it...iirc it is 4.0mm as the shoulder on an oem spec case tube is about 3.85mm. Some gaskets are rubber and some are hard plastic and you turn the case tube down until it seats against the case. Theoretically...I had a batch of 'oem spec' case tubes that broke off under much pressure at all. I do not know where I got them but the row of threads where they screw into the case were about 2/3 as long as oem. Something else...I have seen replica 7.0mm triplock crowns with O rings in the cap where the crown bottoms out to compress the O ring against the end of the case tube and the crown (and coronet) stay in the same position as time goes by. I have also seen crowns with flat round gaskets in the crown cap and the gasket flattens out over time and the crown gets closer to the case after a while.

    I usually taper the hole for the case tube. Most of the cases don’t have a taper, they are just flat. That will keep your tube original.

    Have him remove this lip on the lathe. The tube will sit flat and doesn’t change the case. Easy
  17. Hey guys, Domi and me installed today the GEN Tube+GEN Crown on a JF 16610LN. We got some problems, since we need to modify the case to accept the GEN Tube. It went all without problems, but the Crown has now a little Gap between Case and Crown.. On the Rep Tube you dont have this Gap since the crown is very very close to the case. You know what I mean? Now I'm unsure which looks more "GEN-Like".. with GEN Tube or with Rep Tube: GEN Tube + GEN Crown: Imgur: Gen Tube+Gen Crown Rep Tube + Rep Crown: Imgur: Rep Tube+Rep Crown What do you think?

    Beautiful 5514. I nearly wore my 3714 to work today, but my tag WAB2010 won out. I've been coveting a JLC Master Compressor for a while now, will get around to one one of these days.

    Thanks for the reply, that helps. It would be amazing to get a list of the parts needed in order to perform a modification to the regular 1570 date! It's what I was expecting.

    It’s definitely not “just the same movement.” They share 90% of the same parts but there are extra/different parts to add the 24hr function. I don’t have my manuals on hand to tell you exactly which ones but that is how it works on the 31xx calibers (and pretty much ALL “families” of calibers as well). There is a base design and slight variations for different functions. You can use a 1570 and modify it with the alternate pieces. So yes it will transplant but no, not directly.
