  1. Got it. Looks like its the T1 case. Need to pop off the bezel and use a glass remover to remove the crystal. Now....if only i had a "glass remover" (or can this be something far less primitive?)
  2. When removing the movement while changing the crystal out i must've somehow damaged the balance wheel spring. Figured it would be easier (for me) to swap out the movement then trying to repair it. Also, how does one remove the crystal from these "open through glass" cases?
  3. Is there any difference in the 5606 movement depending on whether the model of Lordmatic movement it's in is opened through the caseback or through the glass? I'm looking to swap out the movement on my watch, which is accessible through the caseback, and am wondering if a 5606 movement found in an "open through glass" model would work?
  4. Just had the same issue last night, although i know beyond a doubt that it was my fumble fingers that screwed up the balance. Now on the hunt for a beater 5606 movement for my poor little Lordmatic.
  5. Thanks for confirming the process canthus. I've no problems taking time to do it, I'm just glad I'm now sure what the process is. I've got diamond paste on order!
  6. Thank you, not only for the information, but the level of specificity and detail! I do appreciate it
  7. I've got a dremel with the small felt wheels, that should suffice? I will need to pick up some of that diamond paste. Like I said, I've been trying to use the two polished below, finishing with Peak Cream. I think starting at 1000 grit was my biggest problem. Will pick up some rougher grit SP and give it a whirl. Worst case scenario is a ruined crystal i know i can replace!
  8. I've got a couple Seiko 6139's with pretty rough crystals. I was able to get about 75% of the scratches out, but it's not the sparkling result I've often see posted by others. I've been starting with a 1000 grit sandpaper(too chicken to start any lower than that), and then I jump straight to 2000 grit, using some #2 and #6 polishes in between, which has yielded what i'd call average results. I know they're only around 40 bucks to replace, but i'd love the satisfaction of being able to do it myself! Does anyone have a tried and true method to restore these old crystals?
  9. Fantastic, I can pick that up today! Again, thanks for your help!
  10. THANK YOU oldhippy, this has been very enlightening! And thank you for sharing that manual!
