  1. Yes, that is probably what is needed. If you have a link to one for sale, that would be great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Watch of Today

    I had one of those for a while. If I'd known it was the "holy grail" I would have asked more when I sold it [emoji2] Like yours, mine had a knock to the crystal - but at around 9 o'clock. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Well the dial side was a lot trickier than the train side. After a few goes I managed to get it all lined up and working correctly. Unfortunately, there are no signs of life. Using my multimeter the coil tests good, the battery is good, but there are no pulses emitting from the circuit [emoji22] Looks like I'll be keeping my eyes open for a donor 1337 or 1332 from which to salvage the circuit.

  4. I managed to find time today to finish cleaning and rebuilding the gear train today. Everything seems to be working properly with regard to the two magnets between the second and centre wheels. When the second wheel is inserted into the centre wheel there is quite obvious resistance pushing the two wheels apart. Win! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I'm guessing Stefan is a well known seller of vintage Seiko parts. He's on a couple of the forums under the name Seikochrono or schillachi61. He sells on eBay under the name schillachi61. He often has parts he hasn't listed on eBay so shoot him a message with a specific request. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. G'day Pip. Well my thought was that if you drop a magnet you upset the highly regular polarisation of the elements and it loses its magnetism (sorry if I'm a bit vague on that, high school science was a long time ago). If the transducer is vibrating the sides of the unltrasonic (again, my assumption which may not be the way it works) and the parts are sitting inside a jar likewise being vibrated, might that vibration not transfer to the parts, having the same effect as dropping a magnet - messing up the ordered polarisation of the elements? I haven't had a chance yet to have another look at the parts yet - will have to wait until the weekend - to see what's going on magnetism wise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hi all. I've occasionally found answers to watch repair questions here, but have not joined up until now. My handle will be familiar to one or two of you who're active on the Seiko-focussed SCWF and Wrist Sushi forums. Hi guys. I've been into Seiko watches for at least eight years, almost exclusively vintage, and I've acquired a few vintage Swiss watches along the way. While I've done a lot of case strip downs and gasket and crystal replacements, I've also tried my hand at the odd simple mechanical movement service and a few Seiko 7546/8s. My latest project is a non-running Omega 1337 movement that seems clean but is non-running. The coil tests as good, but we'll have to see about the circuit when I get it back together. This forum has the only strip down threads on this movement I can find, so I'm using Lawson's thread on the topic as a starting point. Oh, I hale from Tasmania, off the south east coast of Australia. Thanks for having me, Tristan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hi guys, sorry to necro this thread as my first act as a new member. I promise I'll introduce myself properly soon. Thank you for putting this together [mention=246]lawson[/mention]. It's given me the confidence to attempt a strip down, clean, and service of a non-running 1337 I recently obtained in a job lot. Hopefully gummy oils and not a failed circuit (coil tests ok) are the problem. Anyway, I've stripped it down and cleaned the plates and gear train in my ultrasonic (excluding the rotor). I noted the need to dry clean the magnetic rotor and canon pinion separately as discussed above. I also noted the suggestion to pay close attention to the small washer(s) between the second and centre wheels. However, I did clean them in the ultrasonic. I've just found a service guide for the practically identical 1332 movement and it recommends removing the two washer between these wheels and dry cleaning them. The guide mentions that they're magnetic and should be placed so as to repel each other (presumably in place of lubrication). I've added the guide here. I hope I'm not breaking any rules re the size of attachments to be hosted by the site. Having cleaned them in my ultrasonic, am I likely to have demagnetised them? Were you using an ultrasonic or a proper rotary parts cleaner, [mention=246]Lawson[/mention] and how did you go? 1332.pdf
