      Hello,
      Now going to tackle my second Seiko repair after fixing a displaced 7S26-C rotor/bearing (posted in another thread). I'm still a newbie at all of this, but learning by watching, reading and doing. I'm really enjoying the work, I wonder why I did not learn this art years ago.
      I was given a Seiko 7009-3040 automatic for free. I took a look at it and saw that is had a bent second hand. Closer inspection showed the little [ S ] emblem has been disconnected from the face and is rolling around between the dial and the face (show here resting next to the 4 o’clock position. It was actually in the day/date window hiding at first. After a bit of tapping it came out.
      I was thinking it might be not too hard to fix?  Separate the  movement from the case of course. Then glue the [ S ] emblem back in place on the dial using a very small amount of super glue. I can see two small holes for mounting. Bend the second hand back to straight.
      So the real questions are
      is super glue OK for this application, I would assume to let the dial stay out of the case for a day or two to protect the rest from 'glue fogging'. looking a the second hand, I'm almost sure it just might break if I try to straiten it? had anyone else seen this happen, the emblem falling off and fouling the hands? Thank you very much in advance.
      Cheers

    • Good to be here, found this place while trying to find out what or where I was going wrong with a Seiko 6119 movement,  just wondering how come i have never seen it before.  I am Francis married with 3  children, all under 10, yes I started late since I am 55 and wifey is 33.  Started off doing pocket watches and somehow now getting into Wristwatches.  Still trying to work that one out. Bought a lot of movements some 10yrs ago and have had them stored away, and now we decided to put down roots, i dragged it all out and now trying to learn more and more as I go along.  Francis Downunder.

    • The stem looks like thread worn at top, but might be just the angle of picture. As for the hands not turning, possibly something has slipped on mechanism, like a spring. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&Longines_23ZS might be worth comparing the picture with yours. 
    • hi I'm working on a longines .caliber 23zs. It was not working and i noticed if you moved it the balance would start and the hands revolved until the second hand reached number 5 where it was catching. To cut a long story short i have removed the hands and refitted them and there going fine. But when i went to reset the hands nothing. I pulled he crown out to the position to move the hour and minute hands and there nothing happening. it turns freely but the hands don't.The crown has now come off as well but that screws back on though it seems loose. I have cleaned the stem and examined it to the best of my knowledge and it seems fine. It slides in and out when i release the screw holding it into the movement. I have tried to download docs from cousins but they only show dial diameter.  I have also googled it but there's not a lot out there.Not what i need anyway. I'm just wondering have i missed something obvious that should have been done.. Any advice gratefully accepted. cheers gary
    • if you have a tap and die set,   (and a lathe) just thread a hole in a brass rod and you have the perfect "screw holder".    doe's not work on left handed thread.    vin
