  1. No unfortunately not. If you want to see all the pictures provided its on ebay right now being sold by seikocitizenseller.
  2. Is this real? Thinking of bidding on it, but something seems off...
  3. I have a beautiful Wittnauer 11arg movement that I bought off a jewler for 10 dollars. I figured that I could easily find a suitable case to fit the movement. To this date I have been unable to find a home for this movement. A year ago I ordered a case off of ebay that matched with my movement. When the package arrived at my house it was empty. The Wittnauer 11arg movement is based off an as 1361. Does anybody know where I can find obscure parts/ know where I can get a suitable case?
  4. Update: I somehow got it working again. The time still won't change. I can manually wind it but I cannot change the day or date. The time only sets when I pull the stem out in the time setting position. Constantly slips even while doing this. What could be wrong?
  5. I'll check it out! Thanks for the advice!
  6. I paid 3 dollars for this watch. Is it worth buying a ~40 dollar AS 2066? I know there is no second hand but that doesn't bother me too much. Edit: Movement no longer works. Took it last dying breath overnight.
  7. I bought a 1973 bulova jetstar from a flea market today. It has a bulova 11BSACB movement. When the crown is pulled out, the day and day will not change and the time barely sets. They do flip over when setting the time. Stem is barely making contact in the movement. It was running when I bought it, but now I can't get it to run. The balance swings but does not tick (The pallet fork is broken). I would like to get a replacement movement for it but I can't seem to find a suitable one. Is this movement compatible with another bulova caliber or another movement? Thanks, Seth
  8. I guess you are right! I'll check it out! Thanks for the link!
  9. Interesting! I thought adding a jewel was the only way. From what everyone has been saying I will not be able to fix this by myself. I will save up for a service.
  10. The only way to fix it is by drilling the hole out and putting a jewel in place. Essentially adding a jewel.
  11. I have seen various service videos from Spencer Klein about the 7548. He said that because seiko didn't put a jewel on the central pivot, the hole becomes an oval with gradual use.
  12. I have miscellaneous money from selling things like a camera or a watch or two. I have little experience with servicing movements, and I do have a few basic tools like screwdrivers and tweezers. When I replaced the coil block I took every measure I could to not mess it up. I cleaned my workspace, wore gloves, and was very careful not to touch anything but the coil block.
  13. Would a 7546 plate work? I have a broken 7546 that I got the coil block from.
  14. I have a seiko 7548-700f that I bought at a flea market for 15 dollars. Very beat up. Heavy scratches on the back near the lugs. Looks like the previous owner didn't know how to take a case back off properly. Last year during a battery change the screwdriver slipped and i hit the coil block. I managed to replace it without trouble. Starting a couple of months ago it started losing time. LOTS of time. I would take it off overnight and in the morning it would be 5 hours behind the correct time. Happens no matter what position the watch is in. I suspect that this is because the hole for the cente
