  1. Thanks so much for pointing out this company - free shipping too! Awsome feedback guys! Luke
  2. Hi Folks, my name is Luke, and as I already made an inquiry in the watch repair forum, please forgive me for doing this backwards... As you can guess I'm from Massachusetts, not a huge collector but I've picked up a number of timepieces in my time that are worth repairing for both practical and impractical reasons Looking forward to learning more about watches!
  3. Thanks so much for your feedback! As it was originally a $300+ watch (I guess around 100 now), I might just try and get a quote from someone on a repair... there is only a 7N43-OABO identification on the back, along with a 6-digit serial code, any idea where a good place to go for parts would be? I'm pretty new to watch repairwork, and would probably try and go through a shop anyway, but it would be good to know where folks go should I take the plunge ... this is the only non-mechanical watch I own.
  4. Greetings, I'm new here! I have an issue with my Seiko SGG711 (Titanium) watch and was hoping someone could offer some advice. Let me start out by acknowledging that this is not exactly the type of watch most people would typically go to much effort to repair, but, as is often the case with items such as watches, the sentimental value of the object can and will exceed the monetary value. So, now that we've got that out of the way, the issue I'm encountering is not a major one, only a mild annoyance (for now) - basically, it's got day and date wheels that display on the right face (see picture), and they both move at the correct speed, and while the day can be adjusted, the date number is very difficult to change - as I try to adjust it with the knob, it tries to move up, but slips back down. If I obsessive-compulsively move the knob for several minutes, I can get the date number to make it to the next number, and all is well until the next non-31 day month ... and being in February, well, you know.. it's going to be annoying to skip a few numbers.. So I was wondering if you guys could shed some light on this type of issue, if it's fixable, if parts are source-able (obviously, this particular watch is not exactly a famous line for Seiko), and how much it could cost to be repaired. It's been a good run for this watch, and I've worn it just about every day for a little over 6 years. I've never found another watch that fit quite as right as this one, and while I'll buy another somewhere if I have to, I'd really like to repair the one I've got. Many thanks for any advice you can offer! Luke
