Question about Orient Watches

1 Answer

I have an "Orient Fineness Ultramatic" men's automatic wristwatch, 35 jewels, approximately 1967 vintage, one-piece case. It runs, but needs cleaning and lubrication. Is there a reliable watchmaker who can deal with this?

Mcdevito75 here, Hello John, Orient Ultramatic, 67" beautifull watch and Vintage, Our Repair Service Directory should have a watch repair person who can service your vintage watch. At the bottom of this page Click on Repair Service Directory then watches. Please be aware, like any machine John, your vintage watch has wear in it, the gears in the gear train, have the slightest play between the teeth, the main spring and hairspring are not as tight (rigid, springy) as they were when your watch was say, 3-5-10 years old, these factors all contibute to your watches off time as a matter of speaking. You may want to consider a complete over-haul of your Orient Ultramatic watch. I am Mike D of the RITE TIME BASICS, listed in the Repair Service Directory here at fixya. (email mcdevito@netzero.com)Or you can choose any of the other fine watch makers here at fixya"s Repair Service Directory.

I am needing to find out what kind or size battery The Fossil Blue AM-3574 takes and where I can purchase them.


The vast majority of Fossil analog wristwatches take either a #377 or #379 watch battery. The #379, being slightly smaller, is somewhat more commonly found in women's watches than in men's watches, but I have seen both types used in men's and women's watches alike.
These batteries are commonly found at many drug stores, jewelry store counters at places like Walmart and Target, and even at some dollar stores. Be aware that cheap dollar store batteries are usually alkaline, not silver oxide, versions of the same size battery. Alkaline batteries may work perfectly well in many watches, but they have a somewhat different energy performance curve over time, and, in general, they won't last quite as long as a comparable silver oxide battery. In addition, for reasons I've never been able to figure out, some of the Fossil watches that I've serviced would not function with an alkaline battery--but would work fine when I put in a silver oxide battery of the same size and voltage. I have not been able to see a pattern to predict when this will and will not occur.
As a final thought, the backs of some Fossil watches are very snugly fitted to their cases. You can generally get them off without too much of a problem, but there's a good chance you may need a jeweler's press to get them to snap back on properly. I've noticed this most with round watch backs; I generally haven't needed a press to close oblong or tonneau-shaped Fossil watches (or some round watches, too). A jeweler's press spreads the pressure evenly around the edges of the watch back and watch case, preventing damaging pressure on the watch crystal, watch movement, and watch back. Clamping the watch in a regular vise to try to press on the back runs a high risk of damaging your watch, and I do not recommend trying that, no matter how frustrated you get. It's much safer (and cheaper, overall) to tip someone with a vise a couple of dollars to close up your watch for you.

I need an extra link for my Ebel mens sportwave watch?


Thank you for contacting FixYa.
You should be able to contact Ebel direct to get extra links from them. I could not open their website to give you a number. Check your manual to see if there is a customer support # there.
Best wishes. Jewel

I have a Fossil Automatic Watch, model ME1032. The case back is held intact by four small screws. I lost one of the screws after I cleaned the movement. Where may I purchase another screw without going...


mcdevito75 here, Almost any jeweler should have another screw for the case back. You may even save a few bucks going to a small jeweler shop over one of the big concerns.
