A quick question am I right in saying that most older orient Quartz used the same movement in house depending on if they are day or day date on non day date approx three different movements

Domecurb I am getting excited lol

Great result It must be very rewarding bringing a watch back to life which may otherwise be discarded. While the movements may be rare no doubt part of the pleasure will be keeping a look out & finding them when they do appear. Very Happy

It's a great pleasure and a great felling bringing. It back from the scrap heap , finding them and trying to find the parts are a nice challenge worth the hunt

There's also a lot of knowledge and experience involved which I respect.

I wonder how many parts, broken watches, cases etc forum members have accumulated over the years. Bet there is a fair amount of "treasures". Very Happy
