  1. Good idea, I’ll try and do that tomorrow. Hopefully I’ll get some time after work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Hi all. I have a couple of Ecozilla's I'm sorting knackered date changes on. That in itself doesn't present any particular issues, but on one of them the bezel click has packed up too. The two Ecozilla's are of different ages. One is the B873-S015804 and one is the B873-S02664 [RFN]. The RFN model, which I think is the newer one, the bezel just screws off. The non-RFN one, this doesn't appear to be the case. Although I kind of think it must be or how would you change the crystal? Long story short, it's not my watch and I don't want to damage it by trying to force something that won't move. I've even looked online and a lot of the bezels seem to have the text on them in the same alignment which has me wondering too. Does anyone have any Citizen tech manuals that would cover this? Or has done one before? (Must have done the non-RFN sa the other is different). Thanks for any help you are able to offer. Pip Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. But inside a plastic bag or you’ll likely never see it again if you’re not used to doing it! Or a big blob of rodico at least...
  4. Or keep scouring the bay and you may find a movement you can cannibalise. But that movement may have unseen issues meaning you’d be back to looking. Or if you’re like me it’d just mean you have two movements you want to fix instead of one! [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. I can vouch for speedtimerkollection, used him many times and no hassle. For clarity I’m not involved in any way, just a happy customer. Ps: you could always learn to fix it yourself? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. I always understood that burnishing moved material rather than removed it. Is that not right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Thanks for posting OH, I’ll be into his videos* later with a nice bottle of red I think! *do we still call them videos?!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I always find your work inspiring, thanks for posting! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I don’t know but can ask over at SCWF and at WS for you if you like. But good luck, it’s a beautiful watch. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. They can take a bit of getting used to, that's for sure! I certainly had a few ping around the room. There's a great guy called Adrian who runs VTA in Australia, they specialise in vintage Seiko and suchlike. Adrian was kind enough to make a great tutorial video; helped me a lot and following this method I've had no real dramas since. Hope this helps.

Another great guy but he's based in the rather less sunny climes of Coventry in England!
  11. I might have sourced one thank you, a friend on the other side of the world is going to check for me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It should look like this one: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’ve tried looking most everywhere I can think of but to no avail. Does anyone have a knackered old Seiko G757 or parts of one sitting about as I need a battery clamp for one I’m working on. Thanks in advance. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I checked a movement on my chinese one against a proper professional Witschi (spelling?) one. There was a difference, but it was only a few degrees of amp between the two. I think over the course of several comparisons the biggest difference I had was 4 degrees iirc. I can live with that.
  15. Thanks OH. I'd have the thing myself but I already have a stereo scope, and the first time my wife saw the big stand she would no doubt string me up from it!
