Broken P.9000 Clone Balance Wheel - help/options?

Recommended Posts

I've got a Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days (Ceramic, Brown Dial) here with a broken balance wheel (the jewel to the mainplate seems to have cracked largely away, and I don't think the spindle is quite as long as it should be (the end of the staff seems to have chipped off along with the jewel - don't ask). I can't seem to find a balance wheel that matches anywhere, so my questions are:

 

1. What's the movement based on? Can I buy a new Shanghai (or Seagull, etc) movement to cannibalize the balance wheel, or has this been altered to look like a P.9000?

2. Or better yet - is there anyone who sells just the new balance wheel assembly?

3. Anyone have one sitting around they want to sell?

 

Thanks!

Sorry for the delay - here's the balance wheel front and back. Sorry for the crappy mobile photos!

best to get a new mvt if the jewel in the mainplate has cracked. I know from experience getting a new jewel that fits is a pain in the butt

But where? it's been decorated to resemble the real deal and it has a display back, so I can't just pop in a 23j...

Ah-hah. I get it now. I don't know how I missed that it's an ST2555. I'll order a new one and swap over the "blued" screws and such. Anything else to look out for as far as fitment? Are parts going to go flying when I take off the datewheel plate?

 

Thanks!
