Seiko 70xx movement spacer

Question

Hello all:

I've been tinkering with several Seiko 70xx movements (mainly 7009 and 7025)

This could be a very silly question, but in most cases I have had problems to get the movement spacer into the case, and sometimes even to take that spacer out too. When I've serviced the movement, I first put the movement into the case, then I attach the stem and then I try to put the spacer, but it usually seems to be too thick and it almost doesn't fit between the movement and the case. I have to force it in, or leave it not in possition because I'm worried to break the balance or something.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Should I put the spacer into the movement and then both parts into the case? I haven't tried that approach yet, but I'm afraid that the movement + the spacer wouldn't get into the case together.

Can anyone recommed a way to do this task a little bit easier?

Thanks in advance.

On some watches with 7005 there is a flat gasket that is over the spacer. That you need to remove first. Can be hard as a rock.  Some have a black plastic spacer that usually is no problem . Just make sure it sits right in the case.

You are right, rogart63, that gaskets are usually very dry and many times they break when I try to remove them . I always remove it before  removing the movement, sometimes it gets out with the caseback and sometimes it remains in the case and I take it out with tweezers. But it isn't in the way of the spacer nor the movement.

BTW I have still pending to find replacements for that gaskets.

    • Fantastic work so far. If you have the skills and tools to make it yourself the end result is always far more satisfying than a cheap off-the-shelf solution and you get something built to your specific needs. I commend you for doing drawers, they're fiddly and time-consuming. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Morning all.  I've been looking for a Super Elite jar and the only ones I can find are from England (I'm in Australia). These things weigh about 700g and are fairly compact. However the cost of sending to Australia is indicated at approx 60 to 70 pounds.  To me this sounds exorbitant when Royal Mail quotes approx 11 pounds with full international tracking.  That is for up to 2kg with the sum of W+H+D no more than 90cm. Am I missing something? Even with 10 pounds worth of wrapping material, a box and bubble wrap, I would have thought it would be on third of that price. I'd be interested in any thoughts on how to get a more reasonable price. Cheers, John
    • if you are new to running a lathe,  use a 3 jaw,  jacobs' and collets.  most nubies are afrade of a  4 jaw because it takes much more time to  get it "on center".  with some experience,  a 4 jaw can be put on center in15 seconds.
    • When I'm reading this discussion are we talking about cleaning the watch movement parts or the watch case parts?
