  1. Service of a Seiko 6106 Movement Sorry I have been slack posting movements I've serviced at home, but work has been busy, and the movements I've been servicing are not that different than what I've already posted ... just more of the same. Well, I got another one of my Mum's friends who asked if I could repair their watch that was given to him on his wedding day by his wife: who has now sadly passed away :( Of course I said YES!! And it turned out to be a lovely old Seiko; but a little worse for wear :unsure: The hands had fallen off, and the plexiglass was so scratched you could hardly read the dial. After opening up the caseback, there was evidence of corrosion starting to set in ... but thankfully it was caught in time. Here's what the intact movement looks like. Once the automatic works were removed, it was obvious this poor old thing has never seen a service since it was purchased in 1974. Very dirty, and very dry. This movement has a complex keyless works which included a pusher for rapid date change, so before I started removing the dial side, I pulled the Balance and Pallet Fork ... just to be sure to be sure :) Notice how dirty the movement is from this angle as well. Ok, on to the dial side, to remove the calendar work and the Keyless work. Calendar work is pretty much like all Seiko's ... minus that annoying phillipshead screw, thank the Lord! Here's a picture of the Keyless work, with the incorporated pusher system for date change. More of a close-up of the pusher arm There is also a large spring for the pusher mechanism Once that was all disassembled, it was back to the Train Gears and Mainspring. Notice this movement also has a hack that stops the Train Gears; instead of the Balance ... all very interesting :) And for my good mate Bob ... here's the picie of the Automatic work mate :P Look how dirty and nasty the Eccentric Bearing is ... Ewwwww! Here she is coming back together after a long bath in the suds Lookin much better! I polished the case, and spent about 15mins with Ploywatch trying to polishing all the scratches out of the glass ... but it was just too far gone :( Still at least you can read the Dial now :P Off to the Timegrapher and in typical Seiko fashion, once cleaned it purrs :D Hope you enjoyed this post, and I'll try to post more often guys.
