    Default Rotor needed for Fortis Cosmonaut

    Can anyone let me know where I would be able to find a replacement rotor for my Fortis B42 Cosmonaut? Fortis informed me that they do not have any, which I find hard to believe but I can therefore not obtain it from there. I guess a non-signed one would also do. Thank you.

    Do you actually need the rotor? It is a hard part to lose, and you can separately get the bearing and the gib (kind of retaining clip), because the rotor itself is not a wearing part.

    If it's Lemania-powered, I'm interested. Tool Chrono - interested. Dive Chrono - interested. Interesting - interested

    Hello Dave. Thank you so much. I read up about my watch's problem after I made my post here, and noticed what you convey. My watchmaker greased the bearing which helped for 6 months but it does not wind on the winder anymore, so, the problem is back. One can hear that the rotor catches against the case back as well if you shake from side to side. Please refer me to someone where I can obtain the bearing and the gib. Are these parts specific to the particular rotor or are they generic for Lemania 5100?

    Did you notice the links embedded in my post??? Click on the words bearing or gib above, but get your watchmaker to look up the parts for the Omega 1045 (which is the Lemania 5100) to get the parts that are failing.

    Pardon me Dave. I just assumed they would describe what these are. Do you know if the Omega parts fit the Fortis rotor at all? I must unfortunately bring the parts to my watchmaker 40 miles away in very heavy traffic. He is 80 and also only accepts watches during working hours.
