Should I replace the pallet fork or am I missing something else during reassembly?
  6. Hi everyone, Just starting my journey into repairing mechanical watches because of a faulty NH35a (Seiko SII) in a chinese homage watch. Owning a bunch of these and a Seiko starlight presage (my Fiancee present). I hope to find some good advices here. See ya
