The reason it rubs is because there is wear in the bearing. Proper repair is to replace the bearing. Sorry no leads on where to source a bearing. I think I did cannibalize one from an Orient but that was a few years ago.
p.s. Even if you do file down the heads of the screw My guess is that the rotor will then hit the edge of the automatic device bridge.
I'm working on a Seiko 7625 movement in which the rotor rubs against the three center screws of the self-winding assembly. The marks from the screws can be seen on the rotor.
What is the best way to resolve this? I've thought about placing a thin washer between the rotor and self-winding assembly or filing down the screw heads but not sure which is the correct approach.
I have a Quartz Marathon Navigator with a Rotating Bezel that is frozen. I would like to remove the bezel, clean it up and hopefully get it working again. Having never worked on one, I'm not sure how the bezel is removed. Can anyone advise me on how to remove the bezel.
