Seiko 6106 keyless

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have Seiko 6106C here and I’m puzzled about the setting leaver and the date corrector.
The setting leaver, I am guessing that will lift like any other part or I might have to give it a push from the other side as you would when you are taking the stem out?
The date corrector has two groves on the head, I don’t know the meaning of that but I’m guessing it will be the same case as the setting leaver, either lift it or push it out from the other side?

One more question, is the barrel the same-ish as the modern Seikos that are not supposed to be taken apart?

The setting lever lifts free once you take off the setting lever spring. The date corrector is riveted on the main plate and you don't have to/cannot take it out.

You can open the barrel and service the mainspring.

    • Thankyou for that, I did have a PDF for the movement but not as detailed as this one, thanks again Scott..
    • No - not the watchmaster. The tanks are standalone - you manually move from US Wash to pre-rinse to US-Rinse. After the US Rinse I manually shake the basket to release some fluid and then it goes to the dryer, which does spin and heat (but the drips go into the machine). I guess my question is really around the heating temp (is 70°C reasonable) - I agree the Elmadry is expensive but I can likely find something much cheaper. Also in terms of productivity and consistency I'm trying to avoid the manual blowdrying method (although I agree it would work). I have a workflow that I try to stick to - and I have tasks that I like to do while the dryer is running...
    • After a bit of the Parrot Sketch with Cousins website the GS recommended 1.60 x 0.135 x 660 x 14.5 size appears in my shopping cart. I figured Cousins of all should have parts for these Smiths and of course they have many of them once I found where to look... Three days to the US, then assembly.  I shall update the results...
    • Not sure the following will help you @signcarverbut I made the following note in my book where I record my experiences and thoughts in watch repair. Replacing the arbor. Insert the arbor so that the arbor hook goes in where the innermost coil has its widest section (between the innermost and second innermost coil) to facilitate getting the arbor inside the innermost coil. Then, using brass tweezers, rotate the arbor so that the arbor hook goes into the eye of the innermost coil. I also made the following "ugly" illustration. With some movements, it's a very tight fit, for example, Vostok movements. Hope it helps!
    • Thanks for the replies guys, I think you are both right in what you say, I suppose the brand name on the front of the watch really doesn't have anything to do with what is going on inside. I did find quite a bit of information and background on the movement manufacturer which is actually quite fascinating so I will settle with that knowledge and move on to the next one I think. Thanks!
