Vintage Seiko faceted crystals????

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can source a faceted crystal for my soon-to-arrive Seiko Lordmatic 5606-7360??? I'm up for the challenge of trying to buff our the scratches on the existing crystal, but because it IS faceted that may prove to be a fools errand for a novice like myself. Does anyone know somewhere other than ebay that a guy can find this?

Unfortunately is not like there is secret place to get obsolete Seiko parts. We know the same sources as everybody else does, these you can count with less than an hand. If you can get to know the SN use Google search. You can also look or ask on SCWF (thewatchsite.com)

Boley just lists it, as they do with most parts. When you have an account with them (not immediate, as they supposedly don't sell to individuals) for each item there is a traffic light and price. In this case the light is yellow which means practically unavailable, and there is no price.

Seiko part number is 290W10GC0F if this helps.

JulesBorel appear to stock it... http://cgi.julesborel.com/cgi-bin/matcgi2?ref=SEK_CS^5606-7360

Boley also https://www.boley.de/en/case-parts/seiko/17491.5606-7360?p=199&s=50&l=18

Worth contacting both of them.

 

Thank you JBerry!! I will reach out and see what turns up.

So looks like the item is discontinued as suspected. Would you happen to know the thickness of the crystal? Esslinger has a bunch of crystals that will work for the 29mm diameter, i just want to make sure i'm getting the thickness close. Thanks again for your help!

I wouldn't know sorry, do you have a micrometer or caliper you can use to measure?

Does anyone on this forum have access to Boley parts?

    • Dial looks original. It should be the Yin to the Yang of the one I posted above. As a bonus, the seller claims it actually works, which is a relative rarity for prospective 404 club members. I think I may swap out the steel strap though.
    • If you look carefully at the actual statement its loose pallet stones etc. It's more of a generalization statement. The graphical display comes from the sounds of the escapement. One side of the escapement produces one line the other side the other line. Then there's a problem with timing machines and liquid crystal displays we can see the pixels. So the upper line is migrating relatively straight across the display moving up one pixel at a time but remaining straight. The lower line looks like it's wandering around both going up and down. It really should look more like the upper line. So anything that affects the escapement affects the sounds shows up on the display. As it looks like only one side then it would be typically one side of the escapement. So loose pallet stone possibly even the roller jewel which would affect both could be damaged and I've even seen a loose roller jewel only show up on one side. Escapement lubrication one stone gets lubricated the other does not look like this along with anything that screws up the escapement dirty escapement etc. So cleaning examining and re-lubricating would be a good idea. Then a watch made in the early 70s isn't exactly a vintage watch it really should look a little better.
    • Could the brass coloured washer be a dial washer? The second part... no idea, how thick is it? Can we see some pictures?
    • Look into Omega pushers. They have the same construction as the Breitling . Not sure which model now so you have to do some research.  
    • I received my Ronda 703 movement today, it had a couple of extra parts with it that I have no clue what they are for. The first is a brass coloured washer  - roughly 2mm outside diameter, 1mm inside diameter and curved. The second is brass coloured plate about 5mm x 1.5mm with an open ended hole at each end. Does anyone have an idea what these are for?
