  1. HI Jon, you called me, here I am! S I am sending you a pm
  2. Yes of course, I am receiving watches from all around the globe
  3. Hi Gareth, these movements are not produced anymore, yo your best chance is to search for a spare donor watch on ebay that will not cost an arm and a leg. I do have some spares, but I do not sell them since I use them for the watches I service for my customers, sorry.
  4. The fourth video I posted shows right at the beginning the hour wheel in the center (the grey one) and the date driving wheel (the white one) interacting with one another.
  5. Hi Rich, I just received the notification. As clockboy mentioned, these movements are made of mostly plastic parts. A complete swap is, though, not the only solution, also because complete working movements are becoming rarer by the day. That fault you described can be caused by a damaged hour wheel. Replacing the wheel could easily solve the issue, provided you have be the spare to do it. Let me know if I can be of any help, since I do service these watches, and have so some spares left.
  6. Repairing a Seiko 7T32 is not an easy feat, since almost 90% of the movement is made of plastic, as you already know. I did a series of videos on my youttube channel which you could use to tackel the job. This is the link to my channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/garacs1
  7. I was not willing to spend any money on a reconditioned (whatever that means) oil, no way. I was just researching the best source of original oils, and that result came along.

  9. Hi I have seen on the bay someone selling "reconditioned" oils, are they any good? what exactly goes into the process of "reconditioning"?
  10. Check out the following Image I took when I worked on that 7T32: The small golden (copper) fork in the center area, in the middle of the two coils, is what they are referring to. This is slightly bent upwards, so when the casebakc is fitted, it will make contack with the piezo-electric disc glued to it. You should be able to see the marks on the disc made by the "fork" on the outer diameter of the disc. But honestly, I believe the issue is not mechanical (bad contact of the buzzer lead terminal - that's its name). I have hade a few 7t32 and 7t34s withe the same issue, and even if the alarm was working properly, I could only hear an extremely faint "bip" when engaged. This is probably due to the piezo-electric disc. Which btw is not so easy to replace.
  11. My personal experience: I have been looking for a Landeron case for months, if not a couple of years, and only ran across a couple, that I immediately bought no matter the price and shipping cost. They are rare, so I didn't want to loose the chance to complee a couple of projects I had aside. Which btw are still under development... This one in particular is almost complete: I am only missing the proper set of hands... The movement is a completely restored Landeron 248.
  12. Been wearing this Seio 709-5010 that I fully restored....
  13. @systeman, that is a very nice fix, I had thought about doing something similar on all the 7t32/34/36 I have with similar issue, but never had the courage to do it actually. Might do it now that I saw your post, though. Could help me in repairing these watches in the future as well. @Rob3rto: thanks for posting my video
