Seiko 7T27 Movement Or Circuit Board?

Question

Evening chaps.

 

I have a Seiko 7T27-7A20 on the bench at the moment with a damaged circuit board. The rest of the movement id fine.

Do I have any other options other than the Epson YM57A movements for sale on eBay? 

 

Cheers.

What is the damage to the circuit board? A few close up pictures might help.

I'll get some photos but so far I know the tab that extends into the battery compartment is snapped off and the contact where the start/stop lever contact the board is missing.

There's also some damage near where the hacking lever makes contact.

Underneath it's the same isn't it?
I would just switch top plates if you want it to still say 7t27

 

And change the white date wheel on the Epson for the black original.

Swap the circuit if you can first, because the height of the hour wheel / canon pinion / CS pinion vary between models. Certainly the one fitted to the Seiko Gen 2 Military chronograph differs to the newest movement available. Can measure the current draw later to see if it’s running well enough to give a thumbs-up.

Got the new movement today and the good news was, it is a direct swap, just had to swap the datewheels as the new movement had a white datewheel and the Seiko Gen 2 has a black one. Simple enough to do. Swapped the 7T27 battery plate over with the original Seiko markings too:)

All back together and working great!

They are nice watches, although their being so collectible has caused them to be a bit dear when buying one. How does the newer meca-quartz movement such as the Seiko VK61a compare to the original?

    • Dear All,   My nice Bergeon screwdriver set was chipped after few watch services, was looking for a sharpening kit to repair them, but I soon realized I own a Lansky knife sharpening kit, so I pop the screwdriver blade out and give it a try, the results are very promising, see the photos, it's easy to use and versatile, comes with different stones, if I like, I can even use the ceramic stone to give it a high polish, and I can always use it to sharpen my folding knives, what do you think? Love to hear them.   Darak 16A49BD8-DF55-4F10-BB5D-983DE0C1380C.MOV
    • Hello everyone, I am looking for a sapphire crystal back for an OMEGA Seamaster (212.30.41.20.01.003). Do you know where I can find one ? Thank you in advance.
    • Hi and welcome Brian,  I am confident someone on this forum will come along and put you right concerning grandpa's watch. There is nothing "unfixable" if you go about it the right way and in the right order. Good luck I wish you every success. 
    • Hello, my name is Brian Young and I am new to watch repair.  I recently inherited a 1911 Illinois pocket watch that was working.  WAS.  I dropped it on the tile floor in the kitchen.  Now, I need to repair it, as it was my grandfather's watch and I cannot be the reason the watch has stopped working.  I do not repair watches, do not know the "lingo", and don't own an awesome set of tools.  I am the "street urchin" in this performance of Oliver.  Any help or encouragement you can extend to me would be most appreciated.  I am fearless, and will take the watch apart, if needed.  I would rather have someone who knows what they are doing handle the repairs.  Let me know if I can fill in any missing information.  Thank you for allowing me to crash your party.  Love and light, Brian.  
    • Take it easy around that wiring, one thing I did think of after I posted is that some of the old wiring and indeed that rheostat may well contain asbestos. It will be safe enough unless you start chopping it about. I would grab yourself a triac speed controller and bin the rheostat and its associated wiring. There may be some suppressor capacitors that might need changing (although judging by the age of the machine, possibly not) and when the thing is running I suspect it will blast interference all over the radio spectrum, and buzz all over the local radio stations, but probably not enough to travel next door and annoy the neighbors.
