International venture!

Recommended Posts

So, I'm gonna try and post a couple of photos shortly, both Seiko of course for reasons stated earlier.  

The blue one is apparently called the "ashtray" bezel. It winds, works, keeps good time, over the last 8 hours anyway, the only snag being the day pusher function does not operate every time. 

The silver one is a Seiko deluxe which does not wind or work, in fact it makes a disheartening rattly noise when shaken, like something has come adrift inside. 

They were purchased as items for me to take apart and study, then hopefully reassemble, having cleaned and lubed. 

The ashtray arrived from India today, the deluxe arrived from Japan today, both were ordered last midweek. How easy these days to begin a new hobby, what with international freight, the Internet, and training vids on you tube. I may not even renew my porn subscription, this hobby could save me money!!!  

Next purchase will be a set of intro level tools, then to business.

With the blue dial watch. It could be just dirt packed in the button that is causing the problem.

The silver one sounds like the osculating weight has come off or the axle might have broken. Best to give both a good service.
