    Default need a new movement

    Last month I received a SUBMARINER 116610 LV GREEN CERAMIC ARF 1:1 BEST EDITION 904L SS CASE AND BRACELET A2824 V3. Today I went to set the time and the crown didn't want to pull out. after a few tries it pulled out and I was able to set it. I don't want to send it back to supertime, it would take months to get it back. Where is a good source for a Swiss movement to replace the Asian one? face.jpg

    They only sell to dealers. I want to buy the 2824-2 TOP movement and it was a no go.
    What would I have to do to put a 3135 clone in the case? Will I have to buy new hands and date wheel?

    You can try the fleabay. I’ve bought a Top grade ETA 2824 for my TC there about a year ago

    That looks like a nice item but I hesitate to buy from Spain. Price is good also.

    Was thinking of that. I may be able to fix the movement that is in it. It runs good but there is a problem with the stem. It was too long from the factory and it gives me some problems when I try to pull it out to set time. The crown doesn't sit flush to the case also. It is a ARF v3.

    No reason to over do the repair. Sounds like the stem is not the proper length and needs to be trimmed, maybe a keyless reset. No one in South Carolina around you working on swiss watches anymore?

    You need an account. Another option is Otto Frei. I would avoid buying"new" movements from eBay as you have no idea how old they are and if they will need a service right off the bat.

    There is a guy in myrtle beach that does repairs. He has a gen Rolex of mine right now for service. The service is costing me as much as I paid for this rep. I bought ETA 2824-2, new old stock signed universal geneve. top | eBay. The china movement works good but I just wanted a swiss. I think it needs the keyless reset and stem shortened.

    I did buy the 'ETA 2824-2, new old stock signed universal Geneve. top | eBay'. It probably will need to be serviced but the price was good for a top grade. I think these china movements should be service new because they are usually dry and dirty.
