      Hello,
      I have a lovely antique cylinder escapement pocket watch that I've serviced and got running beautifully but now I have a problem with the minute hand falling off. I think it's known as a pin hole fitting hand. On measuring the hand it shows approx. 0.40mm, and then on measuring the arbor diameter with the vernier guage, it's also 0.40mm so it's very near but won't even grip when mounted. Photos provided of the job.
      Does anybody have a technique I can use to get the hand to fit?

      I was given a 1973 seiko lord matic (5600-9001) recently and I am very fond of it. The acrylic is in pretty good condition and the case isn't too scared up. There are only 3 problems with the watch. First, the case is a little bit dirty between the lugs. Second it gains about 15 seconds a day. Thirdly, the original bracelet is too small, so I tried to replace it and found that one of the spring bars is stuck. I don't really know what to do with the watch so I came here to get some advice. Should I take it to a local  jeweler, send it to the seiko service center (probably a bad idea), or try to work on it myself? If there is anyone on the site that is able to work on the watch I would consider that as well.
       
      Thanks in advice for any advice.0

      Hi
      I'm need help identifying this trench watch movement, if anyone can. I've not removed The face yet but this might be enough to identify it. The hair spring is too far gone and needs a replacement probably easier to replace the balance wheel than replace the hair spring.

    • I’m servicing my first SEIKO watch housing a calibre 7S36B. Got it on eBay for about £70 and it seems to be in reasonably good condition. The crystal is somewhat scratched. I don’t know if it is mineral or sapphire glass. If mineral (which I assume) I suppose I could diamond paste the scratches, but for several reasons I would like to replace the crystal, the most important reason being I’d like to learn how to. I’ve already removed the old crystal and it’s intact so I could measure it. However, CousinsUK.com has a ”Seiko Glasses List (Under Construction)” with hundreds and hundreds of mostly original SEIKO crystals. Each crystal is listed with SEIKO’s part number, for example “Glass, Seiko 095N02GN00”. The question is, how do I obtain the part number of my SEIKO crystal? The numbers I’ve found on my SEIKO are: 7S36-05C0 – printed on the see-through case back, 0D0349 – engraved on the rim of the case back, and 7S36B – engraved on the oscillating weight.
