When you source parts from online for example case movement and hands. can you claim it as being yours? Can you sell the piece on and claim it as your own brand? I’m new to this and don’t know please can you help?

Hi Henry    I can't see a problem there,  look at car manufacture. all the component parts are sourced  from makers and assembled in the factory and brand named. That is no different to what you advocate. In the end that's all you are doing.  How many watches out there are assembled the same way, Eubauches manufactured movements that are in so many watches under many brand names.

The most so called designer watches are utilizing this concept, sometimes there might be a pattern protection or a patent issue that has to be addressed before one slaps on a logo on things, I guess the larger manufacturers has a licensing agreement inplace, but as no logo products there is probably no problems.

Claim against whom? For your watch to be known and copied you would have to sell in the thousands. I whish you can get there first, then worry about imitations later.

Chinees manufacturers produce any of designs they are set up for, without you having to worry about brand ownership. You can name or desgn dials for your order at will.

So far as brand name,  you can register your brand or purchase any of the old abandoned brands cheap, though some have resurrected with advanced luxury mechanical pieces.  

Abandoned brands are just a title, no equipment, no know- how. Much depends on the target market, terretory, finances,advertisment, .....etc.

Lawyers bussy at international court of arbitration give consulation on legal matters starting with incoterms, all the way forward, back to the start.

I had to try this out and got to say it's not to bad. Tried with just a quartz the first run maybe an automatic next time..

    • If you are in no hurry I could stripp one keyless down and make a small tutorial of it.  I seldom use the Moebius 8000 anymore but put it on at request   If one would buy some luricants and don't bother  about the mainspring it would be a setup like this.. Fine oil Moebius 9010 - On the escapement parts (It's here you can use Moebius 8000) Thick oil Moebius HP-1300 On the most other parts which needs to be lubricated  Grease Moebius 9504 Like on the winding pinion and so on.. Special for pallet stones Moebius 9415.  
    • Okay, I made a bit of time to get this project moving forward, it may take me a year at this rate. I had to get another cylinder as the original had all the pins bent. As you would expect nothing fits, therefore I had to bush the new cylinder to fit the shaft. I also had time to polish the fly and rebush it. A note, I added a photo of getting it level for those new to clock repair (horizontal and vertical) as these are long pins and if off a bit forget about them working smoothly. 
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum.
    • A faceted crystal has ..faces but not a lip. Seiko did not use glue often, and the crystal will not leave by pushing with a thumb. Fortunately, Seiko helps watch repairers by classifying and documenting the case construction, here we have an "A" as stamped on the case back. Attached the guide. A good discussion is at https://www.plus9time.com/seiko-case-back-information BTW, I recommend the OP to use the "Watch Repairs Help & Advice" section when it's repair question like this. One advantage is that there answers can be rated and marked as resolving.   1982.03 Seiko Case Servicing Guide.pdf
