Winding stud

(London UK)

In November 2010 I had my Omega De Ville vintage watch fully refurbished by a jeweller (not Omega) in London.

Since collecting the watch, I have worn it three times and my wife used it for three weeks whilst her watch was being serviced. As she wound it the last time the winding stud came off attached to a shank. The stud had been replaced as part of the refurbishment. I bought the watch in about 1967 and it was trouble free - I had it refurbished because the dial was dirty and the stud not original (I got it caught in a door in 1975 and it came off and was replaced with a plain one.

The jeweller says that a refurbished stud is good for a year. Appreciate any comments.

The crown came out with the stem.

Assumoing the watchmaker used the correct crown this should be a simple issue of reinserting the stem and making sure the set lever screw is fastened. If the stem is not the correct one then this needs to be replaced. Not a major job, but will still need the watchmaker to find the correct part.
