Seiko 6117 mainplate

Question

Trying high and low to find a new mainplate for a 6117 . The old one was very badly worn in the barrel arbor. Tried to do a bushing for it but failed. So now i am trying to find a better one. As i said i have tried to locate one but have run out of options. Anyone got a tips where i could search for Seiko parts. Besides Ebay. A 6105 mainplate would work also.

Sorry I can't find a replacement plate. What happened with the repair.

The lower barrel hole was so worn that the mainspring barrel was riding on the plate. Tried to ream it and putting in a jewel. But because the hole was worn  the reamer did go sideways and the hole ended up in the wrong place. And the back of the mainplate had two different thickness where the barrel hole is. So making it extra hard to make a bigger hole.   So have to replace it.

    • Hi, I'm working on a cal 30.10 at the moment which also has the original mainspring with separate slipping bridle. However, the conventional mainspring which sits inside looks fairly "set". The replacement at Cousins is a conventional automatic mainspring, ie. one piece including bridle. I'm not sure if I'd be best leaving the original, or going for the replacement option which is not as per original, bit at least not set, and probably unbreakable.
    • Hi   Forgot to say the only reason I've not removed the threaded ring is I have not currently got a small enough opener to remove it so will order one if it is replaceable.   Andy
    • SQAULE OCEAN DIVER WATCH   Hi everyone. I am in the process of looking for spares for a SQUALE watch. I was at work and a colleague heard I did watches as a hobby and pulled this watch out of his drawer and brought it in. I have never heard of the brand but after some research I have found out more about te brand. Very cool indeed.   I need to repair/ polish or replace the glass and relume the hands and service and replace the battery and strap on the watch. I have not yet opened the retainer that holds the glass in but after removing the bezel I was wondering if this is a domed glass with a tapered edge held in place with a tapered retention screw ring or is it indeed a specialised bit of glass that has a flat lip on the bottom that this retention ring sits on to seal it against a rubber seal. I assume it would be the latter given that the watch is rated to a 100 atmospheres.   Has anyone worked on these watches or replaced one of these watch glasses before? Any pictures? If it is a specialised form I can see me spending many an hour polishing out the scratches.   Many thanks in advance.   Andy
