Gents I'm looking for a parts list/brake down of the watch case. Jules Borel have the parts, but I'm not sure of the description of the part V the part number.

I can't help with the parts break down, but in my experience with ordering A829 parts from Borel, you'll be able to get a crystal and gaskets, but everything else will be out of stock.

Thanks, I've emailed Jules and asked for the impossible! They might have new stock in (wishful thinking) but isn't this fun now the big hunt is on :D

I need the names of the four little pins, so i can source the gaskets (transmission pin? set pin?) :)

The part number for the transmission pins is 81604979 and usually come in a pack of 5 pieces. I don't believe you can just purchase the gasket for the transmission pins alone, you would need to buy the pins also.

Steve,
Thanks for that info, i've managed to track down four pins and all the other parts, well they're ordered and we'll see what turns up :D


Spent some time today learning how to restore a case, It was trial and error but i managed to come up with a half decent job.
Sanded the small scratches and nicks out of the case with 800 wet&dry wraped in a piece of alloy plate 1/4" thick, lubricated with kerosene and then finished up with the buffer using "green" polish and a finishing buff.
The case back I used a "scotch brite" pad in my drill press and centered the case back to the pad, then using kerosene once again lightly abraded the surface.
I first used a grey pad (fine) and found that just polished the case so swapped to a blue (medium) and that gave a better finish without removing any detail.
So what do you think, any good, any tips, any comments ;D
