In search of 11ANACB sweep second wheels (Part #6K)

Submitted by numberlock76 on October 19, 2021 - 10:52am

Hi everyone, I'm in need of as many 11ANACB sweep second wheels (Part #6K) as I can get. Used, new, donor movements, anything would help! I have some beautiful Sea Kings that are 99% ready to go, but all require a longer pinion than the wheels I have on hand. I have a ton of new old-stock Bulova and Caravelle parts (as well as mainsprings and AS & ETA parts) that I'm happy to trade or give away to anyone in need. If anyone is ever looking for a part, just send me a message and I'll see if I have it for you. Thank you in advance!

Would you happen to have a #65C 10BMCD GF 21 in your stock?

I've gone through every interchangeable part and the closest I have are a handful of 10BMC #65C SF 25/40. I'll keep an eye out as new stock comes in and will contact you as soon as i come across one though.

Looking for a main plate for a 14EFAD if you have access to one?

That's a rare one, I don't have that either sadly. I have a good number of 12's, a handful of 13's and 16's, a small box of Junghans 89's (Bulova Wrist Alarm parts), some 17AH, a lot of 11AERC, but mostly parts for 5's through 11's. A huge number of 7AK hands that are compatible with an array of movements... an enormous box of Caravelle parts. I'll try to inventory it all one day and I'll post a link here. I have very few plates (apart from what's in the donor movement collection).

So all the Sea Kings are missing their original Sweep Wheel/Pinion?

Seems odd, I know. I buy lots of parts, collections of movements, damaged Bulova watches, etc, then rebuild them to model conformity. Those #6K wheels come in different heights and I'm lacking the longer ones. I have an 11ANACB and an 11ANACD that both need a taller pinion so I can install the sweep second hands. The 11ANACB has a rounded dial and doesn't use a dial rest and the 11ANACD has a flat dial so it does and out of all the wheels I have for that family of movements, not one is long enough! It's certainly frustrating. One is a 1969 Sea King BN with a beautiful black dial and the other is a 1972 SK with a unique blue dial. The last one is a work in progress as I need the correct case and that distinctive orange sweep second hand as well.

Sorry I can't help with the parts you seek. I'm in need of movement spacer/ hold down ring with the notch/hole for the date pusher and stem for a 1950's "Bulova 23 Calendar". It holds the movement centered in the case. Any chance?

Is it for one of these?

B23 Calendar

If so, I'm working on that one right now, but I don't have the case ring you mentioned. If you need any other parts for it, you're welcome to any extras I have.
