What alternatives

on Tue Jan 17 2017, 19:58
Last week when I changed the dial and hands over on my Invicta I tried to use my movement holders but just could not get away with using them



what alternatives are there ? what do members use ??

are these any good and if I used them would I have to remove the stem to make the movement sit correctly ?

with those holders you need to remove the rotor as they get in the way

they may work, but you might find its case of "fits everything but fits nothing" a bit like an adjustable spanner;) they are cheap enough though

I havent ordered from Cousins before is it easy to do or one of them complicated sites ?

I did look up the 7s26 movement and it's size is 12 ligne so should fit the bigger one
Might order one tomorrow and a couple of other little bits I may need Very Happy

they look to be tapered inside so may work, but you will have to keep the stem installed to prevent the movement from tipping over which it may still do.
cousins are easy to use, when you make your account tick trade account
its expensive to buy one item though as the post is min £2.50
