WTB "fixing-screws for the rotor frame cal. 620

Post by smellody » February 15th 2024, 12:53pm

I'm certain none of you asshats will help me out, but I'll post anyway.

I need two ref 3682 rotor frame fixing screws.

I need two more of these. . .

Not my picture, but shows where the three screws for the automatic rotor module are threaded into the case.

Thanks for your help!

I wish those options were that easy. . .

I have a source, but don't want to ask as they've already been incredibly generous.

The shouldn't be impossible to find, but no Rolex doesn't carry bits for 80 year old watches unless you commit to their $10k historic restorations. None on eBay.

Bits used to be more readily available bit are definitely drying up. . .

Manufacturing one is a potential. I'd prefer a couple of originals though.

Perhaps your watchmakers could source vintage stainless rods from which to custom turn you a couple'a the damn things.

If the frames are readily available what the fuck has happened to all of the screws? Perhaps it is a conspiracy to provide vintage parts without the means to affix them to the movement in order to ransom the 10 G's out of collectors to join the historic restorations club. Downright diabolical, it is..
