Seiko 6602 9981 help


Question

I ended up putting this particular watch together out of two different movements.  It doesn't matter which set of hands I use they won't move unless moved by the stem.  At first I thought they were loose but that's not the issue.  So basically, I can't figure out why I can set the hands but yet they don't move on their own.  Thank you for any help.

Edit. Second hand does move.  Not hour or minute.

Loose canon pinion.

I made me this contraption to tighten canon pinion with, dull the cutting edge of the nailclipper, the screw provides a micrometer action to give you more control.

Good luck

Hi   You state that the hands don't move under normal circumstances, does the balance still oscillate whilst in this condition ? If so then you have a drive problem. Uncase the watch and remove the date complication then re fit the hands and run the watch do the hour and min wheels rotate?  and the canon pinion turn, If not do as Joe says and tighten the canon pinion and try again as its the canon that provides the drive.  Whats the caliber of the movement.

Yes,  second hand is going around, what just got me is how I can still set them, yet the watch doesn't do it.   It's a seiko 6602

The weep/second hand is driven from the centre wheel extension through the canon pinion so if the canon slips/fails to drive the second hand will continue to operate independently.

So the minute gear/ train is OK if you can set the hands.

In case it jumps the date by itself, date complication is OK unless amplitude drops noticably when it gets near to jumping the date.  

Usually hands move easily with loose canon pinion.

I just wanted to say thank you for the responses.   I changed out the cannon pinion from the spare movement I had and now its finally working like it should.

    • Oh my...you should have hyphenated "leather-working" because it modifies "forum."  I will contact the administrator to see about having you kicked off!!
    • Welcome to WRT  forum.  
    • Thanks for the reply! I live in the US and I do have most of the stuff I need. I do have a full set of Moebius greases and oils as well. Looking at the 1900 for a while now, so I'll probably pick that up. As I said, I have a pretty good set of tools including hand levers, Presto Tools, Bergeon Screwdrivers, Dumont tweezers, loupes and other magnifiers, movement bed, Bergeon hand oilers and pots, Bergeon movement-holder, pith and peg wood, Rodico, etc, etc, etc. I have a couple of Seagull 6498s and a Seagul 2824-2 to practice destroying....er.....assembling and reassembling.
    • The intro is like something from a tv show but the instructional parts seem to be from a live training course. I'm 5 videos in and hooked, will be watching them all, great find!
    • you left out an important detail by the way? A lot of this depends upon where you live.. One of the recommendations I like to give beginners is purchasing a brand-new 6497  Chinese clone  as the Swiss originals too expensive in the clone works just fine.. Then you definitely want a timegrapher iin the beginning there very cheap now compared to what they once cost either the Chinese 1000 or the 1900 are both excellent machines. So if you have a new timing machine  and a new watch  you can llearn how to properly time things on the machine. You can look at your brand-new watch see how it functions. Then you can taken apart  and put it back together  and put it back on the timing machine and see if it still functions. Timing machines are more than just timing their diagnostic devices. There's so many questions newbies ask where if they just a timing machine it would help narrow the problem down considerably. Does not like you can hold the watch to your four head and absorb the knowledge of its problems you need  ways of doing diagnostics. Then unfortunately magnetized watches don't run well  they will have issues. aa unfortunate problem with watch repair is that is a heck of a lot of specialty tools that sooner or later would be really nice to have.. As long a basic tools you have to have.  Then when you get in the lubrication  is some of those are nice to have an they're not exactly cheap  so this isn't exactly a really cheap hobby.
