    Default Bezel Click spring (spring and mushroom) for 114060

    Hello,
    Removed the bezel from my 114060 in an attempt to stop the bezel rocking. I noticed 1 of the holes in the case was missing a spring and mushroom (not sure what else to call it), and then I promptly lost another.
    Does anyone have any idea where to find replacements? I saw a few things on eBay for a Seiko it served the same function but was a spring and ball. I could only find the 5 digit sub style click springs at the parts dealers.
    Appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction, I canít be the first one to loose one of these TINY F#$%^$s.
    Thanks.

    The gen is a Ball soldered to a spring, so anything like that could do the job, also on M2M are sometimes some parts

    For my noob v7 116610 I used a combo of these:

    1.5mm Diameter Chrome Steel Bearing Balls G25 Ball Bearings VXB Brand (Set of 250): Precision Balls: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific

    Compression Spring, Stainless Steel, Metric, 1.4 mm OD, 0.2 mm Wire Size, 1.5 mm Compressed Length, 2.3 mm Free Length, 1.91 N Load Capacity, 2.36 N/mm Spring Rate (Pack of 10): Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific

    You may need different sizes...

    Also they all vary slightly so you need to test them before snapping the bezel back on otherwise for instance if the ball is too big it will get stuck in the hole instead of smoothly bobbing in and out

    Did you attach the ball to the spring or just placed it over it?

    Great info d3s, I lost one of mine. Going to try your links. Mine were glued or soldered together from the factory, I think I will glue them together and make sure they bob freely.

    Dude Iím not sure if they are supposed to be glued/fixed since they are ball bearings... think about it: they are the point of contact to a moving bezel so logically they should be freely rolling along with it. Not sure though

    What you say makes sense, but Hublot above posted this:

    "The gen is a Ball soldered to a spring, so anything like that could do the job..."

    Also, the remaining two that I have were already quite stuck together. I'm not sure that even if free that the balls would rotate, they could well get jammed tightly into the spring coil and the bezel just slides over them.

    In this you tube vid at ~1:04 mark, the guy tilts the Sub case down about 70 degrees - I'm thinking one or more of the balls would fall off if not stuck. Maybe a gen owner will chime in.

    I ordered the springs and balls from Amazon - I got the next size longer spring (6.5mm expanded). The shorter ones were sold out, but I prob would have gotten the longer ones anyway, the depth of the drilled spaces on my case are about 3.3mm. I plan on cutting them to size.

    I really appreciate you posting those links d3s - I'm confident I can make some good replacements now.

    Cheers, KJ

    Ask your dealer to source you some.
    And if you are looking for gen then smoke aka live1 have them.

    For installing the gen assambly you will need a gen gasket. Rep gasket just dont do it.
