Hello guys, I want to show you my lately restoration project. This time it was a Seiko 7015-8000 with blue dial. Watch came to me in very poor condition. As you can see on photos the case was scratchty, crystal was totaly tarnished with deep scratches. Everywhere was dirt, gunk and mud...yuck. Movement was running and stopping with very low amplitude. After opened the caseback I wasn't suprised - it looked like as case - dirt and signs of wear. Rotor was loose and fall out the case. When I take off the crystall I saw dial which had faded Seiko logo, some scratches and hands which lost their lume. Next step was strip down the movement - everywhere dirt and dry old oil. Time to cleaning bath Look at this - it's my temporary balance wheel stand - I suspect that from temporary it will be permanent. It does job well. After cleaning it's time to assembly movement. Now it looks better - maybe not pristine but clean and shiny. New oil here and there and movement starts to run. Now it's time for bench testing before install it to the case. Meanwhile I took care of the case, dial and hands. Case got some polishing work - not to much cause I didn't want to loose the sharpness of edges. That is effect: Dial and hands got new lume - I am not perfect in this work but I still learn to do this. Additional the seconds hand was repainted to orange color. I didn't change the crystall but i just polished it with waterpaper and on the end polish paste. Effect suprissed me. Time for the pleasant work - putting this all pieces together into the watch.

Hello dear watchmakers. Last week, I was lucky enough to get my self a beautiful vintage Seiko chronograph watch with 7015 movement. The overall condition looked great so I did not expect any problem with the watch. However, over the last few days, I noticed that this watch stops around 1~2am when the day disk moves to the next day. At first, I thought there was no residual power in the mainspring but the watch won't start after being shaken for some time. It runs well and keeps good timing after I move the day disk manually by adjusting hands by crown till the next night around 1 am. Could you please give me any ideas on this issue?? I really love this watch and want to make this watch perfectly functional. Thank you. I put some photo of the watch and what timegrapher tells
