Seiko MM 300 8L35B



Cheers   Mates!!

Im curentley working on a  MM300 with a Seiko 8L35B movment, and need an second reducion wheel and pinion or transmission wheel, its the on that the is rotated by the pawl lever fingers, see photo.

I have tried to find a part list, but cannot find.

I have searched for parts, but cannot find.

Is there anybody that can get me this part for this movment or parts in general??

As ususal, nice to see you all.....

That is no surprise.  Even if appreciated and sought worldwide, high segment Seiko are sold mostly in Japan, and serviced there only. The only repqirers that can get parts is the official Europe Seiko service center, and I would not be surprised if they were to decline the job with some excuse.

    • I have a few questions on the use of a (lever-type) jeweling tool in the adjustment of jewel endshakes, as I have never done this before. 1. If the endshake is too much or too little, how do you choose where to adjust the endshake? Do you adjust the endshake on the train bridge, or the main plate, or both? How do you decide which is the best? 2. When inserting the pusher into the spindle of a lever-type jeweling tool, such as a Favourite, is the best practice to take out the entire spindle from the tool frame to insert the pusher? And likewise, take out the entire spindle from the tool frame to remove the pusher? Or is it perfectly ok to insert or remove the pusher when the spindle is still inside the jeweling tool frame. Which way is safer/ best practice. 3. Is there an attachment to the base of the jeweling tool to hold the mainplate or bridges? I don’t seem to see any for sale, new or otherwise. Can I make one?
    • In the USA, you could try: https://www.jewelerssupplies.com/ or http://www.julesborel.com/ Cousins in the UK might be a possibility (although Waltham is a US watch, I'm sure some of them made it across the pond). https://www.cousinsuk.com/ Mark also has a list here: https://www.watchfix.com/category/watch-parts-tools-suppliers/watch-parts-tools-suppliers-us/
    • Yup. It's like the song from The Greatest Showman.... Never Enough! Never, never...
    • Somewhere else the group we  we had a discussion on finding lift angle which is similar to this. I've found that using a certain type of highlighting pen with liquid ink worked much better than any other color because it would fluoresce under UV light. So you just dim the lights down and it glows really brightly and it makes it really easy to see the amplitude. There's another way to do it but unfortunately it's astronomically expensive and no I don't know how expensive it is but I think of we would have to ask it's beyond our price range I do wonder if we will for a clever whether we could do something similar? In any case they put a Mark on the balance arm the use a camera system to film it and then they can measure the actual physical amplitude and they can also determine the left ankle. Thishttps://www.witschi.com/en/products/wisioscope-2/ The experience with This Group Has Been They Usually Don't Work the Best. And Then There Is the Other Minor Little Thing Whether You Have a Timing Machine or an App You Going to Have To Figure out How Many Beats per Hour This Is? Because the Age It May or May Not Be 18,000 Fortunately the Timing Machines Usually Have All the Standard Frequencies That It Probably Is and You'll Just Have To Figure out Which One It Is.  
    • I bought the balance staff removal tool first then realized I needed the staking set. lol. Buying more tools never seems to be a problem. Matt
