    Hey JDM - I just did a quick search on these movements out of curiosity. They seem to all have a date function. My watch is identical to the one in the picture attached (no date etc - just hour and minute hands). Is SII VX12E the right replacement for this?

    Thanks JDM - I'll get in touch with them. If the deal is better for Americans, I should be able to use a freight forwarding service I'll also keep that new movement up my sleeve. I'm in two minds about that. Certainly sound like a cheaper and more reliable option though. The local guy reckons that the rest of the interior looks good, just that circuit board gone. So there seems to be some nostalgic tugging at me to try and preserve it (although, I realised this is not a particularly special watch - just special to me). Cheers Rogart63 - yep, I'm an Aussie. Down in chilly Hobart! I'll also reach out to VTA and see what he reckons. Thanks Pip - if I have no luck with the other options, I'll head to eBay!

    Possibly barking up the wrong tree - but I have stumbled across the following website (http://stsupplyonline.com/catalog/circuits-c-420_798_915.html?page=2&sort=2a), which lists Part 4000 587 - which is also listed in a Seiko Quartz Cal.4110A Parts List pfd I've found (here: http://guides.mccawcompany.com/seiko/seiko-4110a.html). Seems to be the part number for the "circuit block with crystal oscillator & trimmer condenser". Surely no chance this is selling NOS after this long?

    Thanks for the tip!

    Yes, absolutely - thanks. If anyone on here has a watch that might be suitable - and you might be willing to let it go - please let me know!

    So something like this - if it was actually in working condition? https://www.ebay.com/itm/SEIKO-Mens-quartz-made-in-Japan-w-Gold-Tone-Metal-Band/253692718582?hash=item3b1143adf6:g:SHgAAOSwHCFanCO5

    Thanks for the quick reply JDM - would the donor movement / quartz module need to be from an identical watch? Or is the circuit itself likely to be repairable by a electrics repairer? Sorry - I really haven't got a clue about watches - I'm just very motivated to get this watch working if possible!

    Hi - I have recently received a couple of my grandfather's old watches. The only one that my local watch repairer doesn't think is fixable is a Seiko 4110-9007 (about 1973, I believe). The repairer has told me that the circuit board is at fault - but the rest of the watch is in workable condition. If anybody is able to give me any information about these circuit boards, or whether they are remotely possible of being fixed (or replaced with an alternative - as Seiko Australia can give me absolutely no information), I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance Richard
