  1. Seiko

  2. Seiko

    I have a Seiko 8F35 which I am tinkering with. Can someone tel me how to release the crown and stem from the movement. Thanks for any help.
  3. Hello Alvis, I recently did exactly the same as you and I finished up with a great machine fully refurbished. Sadly I didn't take any photos but did follow SSTEEL's posts for guidance. I did find the manual for the cleaner. I think it is the same one but there may be some differences. If you would like a copy I can send it in pdf. format to you. Also if you need any help then just contact me and I will try to do so. Best wishes, Mike
  4. Help with OMEGA

    Thanks for all your help with my problem, I do appreciate it but I'm going to terminate the thread for a while. I have massive problems at home which is taking all my time for a few weeks. I will resurrect it as soon as things are better. Thanks, Mike

    Thanks JohnR725

    Thanks clockboy, although it doesn't actually show the assembly it is fantastic for the spares. Following up oldhippys post I looked at Cousins site and wasn't able to find anymore calibres but the one you posted actually had a stamp across the corner indicating that it came from Cousins so I will get on to them and see if they have more in their files which I could have. I think it may just be a matter of detective work but I'm sure the information I want is out there somewhere.
  7. Help with OMEGA

    Thanks oldhippy only good for parts on one calibre. I really need assembly guidance. I was hoping that somewhere there would be a list of all movements which you could download as required.
  8. Help with OMEGA

    Hello oldhippy, the calibre is 552 and the case is 165.0070. Geo you are correct I'm after somewhere that I can get information on lots of different calibres so that I can get information in the future should I have the need to do work on them. The only problem I have with this one is that I can't seem to screw the back right down. I fetched it apart to get the back polished which was extremely successful. When it came to refitting the back it just will no go right down. There is a correct fitting sealing washer and also a wavy steel washer as well. I was after a diagram to confirm how this are supposed to be fitted or whether the metal washer shouldn't actually be there.
  9. Help with OMEGA

    HI, can anyone help me with finding parts lists for Omega. Prior to the change in policy I could find anything about part no's. etc from the Omega site but now all that is available ( that I can find ) are details of movement no's and case no's. I'm really looking for movement and case assembly details with drawings and part no's. I have quite a collection of Omegas and am often in need of these. Any help or advice gratefully received.
  10. Seagull movements

    I have previously assembled a few watches for friends using ETA movements ending up with nice looking watches which work as required. What is the opinion of the knowlegable people here of Seagull movements? Does anyone have personal stories, horror or good, based on the usage of seagull, not just hearsay. Am I going down the wrong route using cheaper movements? I would be grateful for any advice from your experiences. Thanks, Mike
  11. Seiko Quartz

    I have a Seiko Quartz Alarm, movement No. 7223A - 6000R which is not working but in lovely condition. I've been looking for a replacement movement of the correct type for over a year but now realise that I'm not going to get one. Thinking to remove the movement and replace it with a new one with just time, date, or date and month. Can anyone advise me whether this is possible and if so the No. of the correct movement to use. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Mike
  12. Crystal Press

    This style is not used with a crystal that has a tension ring. I guarantee you will break the crystal with it. You need to use a press.

  14. Obtaining a new movement

    Hi GleaveandCoLuke, Thanks very much for that information. I have cancelled the order for the original and ordered the one you suggested plus a set of hands and saved a load of money to boot. All the best, Mike
