Hi all,

If anybody could help me with pointing me to the right site where I could download a Technical repair guide for the Seiko quartz 6N52, I would very appreciate it. I need to find a stem for this type of watch, but unfortunatelly when I bought it on Cousins UK, as it stated under the description, it is for this type, it didn’t fit as it was to small and it didn’t do the job. All parts have their own number, which I think the only option is through looking at a Technical guide I suppose? Thank you!

Hi,

Yes, I got this one. I could put it in, but as it seems to be too thin I suppose. It did click in but hands did not want to move. Maybe I’m doing something wrong, or there should be different one for this model. No clue. I’m new to this. 

Thank you for your response!

Sorry without having it in hand and seeing it myself I don’t think I can help you more. The only suggestion I have is that the keyless works are out of place/loose which might give you those symptoms. Maybe pictures would help us to help you?

I think it would be helpful if you gave us a better description of why you need a new stem?

the reason I'm asking is from the description sounds like you're having a problem beyond the stem. In other words you may have to disassemble and see why the stem is not doing what it's supposed to be doing.

Hi,

thank you for your reply. I’ve uploaded some of the images of this particular watch. I hope that helps to get the general idea. I’m no expert on this. Could’t do any better. Probably I would need to dissasemble the movement to get more info about what might be the issue here? Thanks!

Not much information seems to be available for this movement. Can't find any technical or replacement movements.

But the first two links talk about the movements themselves. The reason for the 53 is you get down to the comments they suggest an alternative but they're not sure. You'd have to look at the specifications of the movement you have versus the suggestion of alternative. The alternative comes from basically the OEM division of Seiko. So that their suggestion third link would be the replacement movement and I've attached the PDF of the manual for that. Probably the easy way to tell is see if the stems of the same but the manual may be close enough to help you with yours but based on the cost the movement and the probably better just to get a new movements unless you just want the fun of taking it apart.

    • Even after thorough cleaning unfortunately the issue persists. I have made sure that all wheels are perfectly clean, no teeth are chipped, no gunk is left built up on them etc. yet the issue is not gone. When reassembling the movement I of course checked if the wheel train moves freely as that was the suspected cause of the issue before. And the intersting thing is - it does - but only in the "wrong" direction. Driving the wheeltrain by turning the mainspring barrel in the opposite direction as it would turn in normal operation, all wheels spin freely, and continue spinning for a few moments even after I stop providing power by hand. They behave the way I'm used to and have seen with other wheels before. However: When I apply torque in the opposite direction, the power delivery througout the train is not smooth or continuous. While it does turn, there are stages of increased resistance in the train. In addition to this, you can hear a slight "rubbing" sound whenever the trian passes by this point of increased resistance. The sound, to me, is more indicative of a surface rubbing on another surface, rather than the teeth of two wheels getting stuck within each other. Installing the click and putting a wind in the mainspring confirms this same issue, it does unwind and all wheels are powered, yet when the power reserve approaches depletion, it doesn't have enough power to push the wheeltrain past this point of friction. The slightest bump on any of the wheels will free the train, make it spin for however many rotations and then get stuck in the same way. You can do this several times before the power is actually completely depleted. This has really left me dumbfounded. I have inspected all of the wheels, pivots, teeth etc. on the entire wheel train and can't find any traces of dirt, any bent teeth or any warped or out of plane wheels. Besides: If one of the wheels was bent and rubbing up against some other part of the movement during a rotation, shouldn't it be doing this regardless of the direction of the rotation? This is supremely confusing to me and I can't figure out for the life of me why there is increased friction in only ONE direction and not the other. Installing the balance yielded the same result as before the disassembly: the watch runs great for about 50 seconds and then get's stuck when the wheel train get's bogged down. I mentioned earlier that there is a periodic scraping noise that can be heard when the gear train turns fast, this noise is not present when turning the train the opposiste direction. Does anyone have any ideas about which parts of the movement I can check for rubbing? I found no signs of wear or scraping on any of the bridges etc. so what would cause this periodic friction in one direction but not the other? I am very much a novice and have never dealt with such an issue before so I would love to hear what you people think about this. Thanks.
    • For me the second site has been hacked. 
    • https://www.mikrolisk.de/show.php?site=280&suchwort=Tschuy-Vogt&searchWhere=all#sucheMarker Wierd the first link didn't work.  They used other manufacturers movements, like most watch companies.  The watch you are asking about has this movement  https://calibercorner.com/ronda-caliber-3540-d/
    • Is there a way to interpret that?  I assume that is information on the watch?  Thanks!
