  1. That is exactly what I'm lookin for except I need the non-rotating dial ring. If you could find the diagram with the non-rotating dial ring I would appreciate it. Thanks a lot.
  2. I have finished servicing my 6139 and have cased it. It seems the chapter ring is rolling around loose. I may not have all of the gaskets to seal it correctly. Does anybody know where I can find the parts for the case. I have a technical manual for the 6139 but it doesn't reference many case parts. Thanks.
  3. The dial is in great shape. The hands show their age a bit. The lume is completely dead. I thought about reluming them but I'm really not very good at it. I've only re-lumed a couple of dials and I wasn't very impressed with my work. I think I could do the hands ok.
  4. I just rebuilt another 6309-7049 for a guy and noticed that the case was chunkier than mine. I wondered what the difference was. This is a picture of his. It's noticeably bigger.
  5. You are exactly right. The watch I refurbished is a 6309-7049. I am currently working on a 6139-6019. Too many numbers. Thank you for correcting me.
  6. Just refurbished this classic. Cleaned and serviced. All new gaskets and domed crystal. New Seiko bracelet. New bezel and insert. Runs great.
  7. Thanks for the reply. I will send a picture when I can. the part I am referring to is at about the 11:00 minute mark in Mark's video. Thanks.
  8. Yes. That little bottle sells for $169.00 USD. This one sells for $18.00 USD from Otto Frei. Thanks for the info. I'll give it a try.
  9. Great project. Thanks for sharing. I just found a Seiko 6139 and I am about to begin refurbishing it. This was very informative.
  10. I am working on an AS 1900. In one of Mark's videos he uses a platex tool to remove the friction pinion from the third wheel. It looks very easy to do with the platex tool. I can't find a platex tool anywhere and I need to remove the pinion. What should be another acceptable method to remove the friction pinion?
  11. Thanks for the expaination. When you say you use it on all end-cap jewels do you just soak them in Fixodrop and and apply 9010 as usual? How does the oil stay in the middle of the end-cap jewel if it is coated with Fixodrop? Thanks ahead of time.
