1520 set lever

I have a 1979 Submariner 1520. I asked Rolex Australia to service it and fix the winder which had come out. Unfortunately they wouldn't do it without replacing most of the watch. The one point that caused me to refuse their quote was that they would have replaced the dial with a new style dial. In my mind that would have ruined the character of the watch. My local watch repairer says I need a Set Lever and Set Lever Screw to fix it. Does anyone know the relevant part number and where I could find on?

Thank you Morten, I'm assuming then that 1520 and 1530 mechanisms use the same parts.

Not all the parts are interchangeable.

These parts fit caliber 1520.

Yes, you're right, I apologize if it sounded like I was implying that those part numbers were not the correct ones. I was only warning that not ALL the parts from the 1530 fit the 1520.
