Seiko 7002 Movement, 2nd Reduction Wheel screw sheared


Hello there,


After disassembly of my seiko 7002 watch movement, i couldnt help but notice my 2nd reduction wheel reverse threaded screw had sheared off, leading to me believing that was the cause of my watch playing up, along with the mainspring barrel popping of. 


The screw head is sheared off and the remaining thread is still in the main plate. is there any way i can remove this and salvage the main plate and just get a new screw?

Further to Nucejoe's sound advice, try to cut a slot in the remaining stud with the needle, and extract with a fine screwdriver. You may also be able to push the stud round in the thread with the needle. Using penetrating oil to free up things first should make the job easier, but patience is a must.

Either way you will need good magnification and good light to see what you are doing, and the movement will need to be securely held. You might find that putting your movement holder in a small vice, then clamping the movement in the holder gives you a more stable platform to work on. Take care not to damage the thread in the hole, as this can make the task much harder.

Some hi res pictures of the problem would help us advise further.

    • I've never used the Longines archive extract but it has to be applauded for offering this as a free service, I have however used the Omega extract service which has a charge attached to it, that service was also good and included the Model number and Name year of manufacture and which retailer originally sold the watch and in which country. I have also had good experiences with a company called Eberhard many years ago, I needed some parts for a old chronograph I  bought at a local auction  I needed a full set of hands a winding crown, and oval pushers, on the off chance they may still have these I wrote to them with the serial number and received a very nice letter back from them telling me that my watch had been manufactured in 1938 and was a two button 18ct rose gold chronograph and that they did have the parts and would be happy to supply them for 65 Swiss francs. Try doing that with any of the large manufactures, their response was a pleasant surprise. I had the watch for many years but sadly I had it stolen about 5 years ago.
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum. Where is NL
    • It's ok if that's how she self identified.
    • Personally I would see if incabloc springs fit.
    • Thanks a lot guys ... I'll do some test and show the results. I really love that dial though it's pretty stained and scratched so I'll try first with Rodico, Q-tips and distilled water and see how it goes. There is no financial risk as I got it for cheap ($40 shipped) but those 1002 dials don't often show up on the net and are sold for much more, even if they are damaged ... plus I have a nice 5500 case that's waiting for a dial    By the way ... did anyone of you ever drilled an ETA 2840 mainplate to make place for Rolex dial feets ? I'm asking because I have the case, the low beat ETA and a handset that could fit but I don't think I could ever cut the feets of a Beyeler Rolex dial
