SEIKO 6030A watch Crystal Cleaning/ Stem Removal


Recommended Posts

Good day all,

I'm a recent 30 year retiree and elected to start cleaning some of my older watches that ended up in a box wrapped in a towel.  One in particular, a gift from my grandfather, began working with a new battery but the crystal appears foggy.

I would appreciate specific instructions for removing the stem/ crown and cleaning the crystal from an 1980 Seiko with the 6030A movement.

Thank you in advance.

Issues can easily be created if you go to remove the stem.

I just lift the palstic movement retaining ring, grab a part of the stem in long nose pliers, unscrew the crown, lift the movement out with the stem attached as you slide the stem out from inside the case.

And;   Welcome to the forum.

Good luck.
