I don't want to take the back off incase it breaks the watch, but I have one that is very old Id like to get some answers about.

so to get to the end quick the best suggestion is that if you are wanting to get in some level of repairs you are best to buy parts lots. Plenty of offering s of crowns, new and used on ebay.

good to get a pin vise too, this is used to hold the stem while you twist down the crown. good luck.

OptCom 1 - Repair Tips

Has anyone here had any success to get one of these back in working order? So far, I've use alcohol to clean the display contacts and the set switch. Also check for cold solder joints but no luck. Guess I'll have to dig out the multi meter and scope. Would be really cool to get this one going again....
