  1. It's a beautifully made strap and happy birthday Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  2. How come the movement says 41 jewels but the dial States 25 jewels. Is it a replacement dial or movement ? Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  3. Means it won't be subject to timing variations due to different temperatures "Thermocompensated" Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  4. I can upload pictures but no video. Shame I was giving a quartz movement serious abuse on a demagetiser to show how robust a quartz movement can be. Never mind, if I can get over the issue I will return to that thread. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  5. I suppose when considering a quartz movement we are trying to obtain perfection but in reality it's a nonsense. Unless you're engaged in some type of profession that requires complete accuracy such as " Global Navigation" 2 seconds a week or even 20 seconds a week or even per day, is of little consequence to the average person. I think my old 1984 Omega 1430 gains or loses 5 seconds a week I can't remember. I wouldn't even consider having any adjustments made to it. I would leave well alone ! Also as Ishima makes reference too " according to my timer should gain something like 15 seconds a day but in reality, I never notice any inaccuracy " Due to variables with a mechanical movement, may even prove to be more accurate than a quartz movement, over an extended period of time, due to the consistent nature of the quartz movement with regards to time gained or lost. In some cases anyway. Now there's a thought. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  6. General rule of thumb, the faster the moving part the thinner the oil but the slightest amount. The tip of the click is a high contact working part and I would apply oil, but only the faintest trace. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  7. Many thanks Anilv. I thought 2000 but 2010 would be about right. Tony Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

  11. Hi Anilv, The case number is 6G28-00C0 and the serial number is 090056. All I can get is the watch was produced in Sept and the beginning of the decade. The only similar watches I can find appear in the "Premier" range I thought it might just predate this but some research has indicated that the Premier was probably introduced in 1988. I don't believe this watch to be that old. So dead end. I'm thinking 1990, probably 2000, could be 2010. Many thanks for your assistance. Tony Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  12. I wouldn't do anything with the watch just yet. Run it on your desk in different positions for a week or so. If the problem persists when wearing the watch, then strip it down. The only difference from the desk and your wrist, is temperature. I suspect something has been over oiled and when the watch on the wrist is warm, something is sticking due to expansion. Over oiling is a common cause of erratic running in a movement, after servicing. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  13. A very nice quality watch. Always a sign of quality when the movement bridges have bevelled edges Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  14. Would be useful if anyone knows when the Seiko 6G28 movement went into production and or when the Premier models were introduced ? Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  15. Without confusing, the 00 could denote 2000 or 1990 or 2010 [emoji16] Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
