Servicing a Seiko 5 7009-3130 Automatic Wrist watch - VIDEOS

Recommended Posts

Gents, I would like to share the new series of videos I am making, while I service a Seiko 5 7009-3130 automatic watch I just received.

This is Part 1, I am uploading the other p2 parts of the tear down and will link them here soon. Please enjoy!

Uploading part 3 and then part 4, with the final result. The watch was already rebuilt after a proper clean and oiling, and also the stem, which was a bit bent near to the crown, has been straightened. The 4th video shows the final result, but there are still some things missing: new glass and new dial, new pin for the bracelet.

Stay tight!

Lol...neither am I. Learning by doing! I'm on my 3rd watch right now. I'm working on an old BYN right now that is a head scratcher. I too still post everything I work on as well though! That one is under "BYN Teardown and Restore" thread. I'll keep your video handy though. Hope to work on a Seiko 5 soon.

You are welcome, mcass, but please be aware I am no professional watch repairer, so everything I do it could be done much better.

Modest as ever, George. Good to see you're still around. :biggrin:

You didn't used a timegrapher at all to verify and regulate the movement? If not, it can be running, but you won' know "how well", even if i keeps good time.

Jdm, I do not have a timegrapher at the moment, but it is in my bucketlist ;)

      Hi guys.. Sharing some pics of my latest purchase. 
      An early Seiko 5. This was for sale on  local facebook page and I got it for MYR177 plus MYR10 for shipping.  That's less than USD50 all in. I'm not a fan of these ridged bezels but I was drawn to the clean face as these are getting harder to find. 

      The case back is from Nov '67. Seiko went from the seven digit serial numbers to the six digit ones sometime in '67 so this would be an early one. Oh and a 'proof' case back is always nice! It's a snap back.. Not a front loader. 

      Case looks like its been polished but it's not too bad. 


      Another view of the dial... On most older Seiko's you would find the lume has blackened and this affects an otherwise perfect dial but since this model didn't come with lume it's pretty much perfect. 

      Inside is a 6119 movement... I'm particularly find if this movement and despite the bezel I think this one is a keeper.

      Hi watch lovers <3
      i got a Robisi automatic watch. It accidentally fell down on the floor and its glass got detached which i attached again but after some time i realised that the Synthetic ruby gem was missing from it. Therefore it lost its balance and it stops time to time. 
      How do i fix this?

      Hello,
      I have a similar problem like this topic: 
      but my watch is a Maurice Lacroix PT 6158. It is a automatic watch. and recently my problem seems worse.
      I tried to wind the crown towards 12 more than 30, but it doesn't help, and make the thing worse, the watch stop moving immediately, until i shake the watch, and it start moving a little bit. and stop again. (The watch used to be really good, and can hold for 2 days straight)
      Like the other guy, i am using it regularly from 7am - 10pm. Every morning I wind the crown 5-6x to make it works until noon. and sometimes it does not working. the only things i could notice:
      1. the circle movement (I don't know what is it called) that i can see on the back side of the watch move really slow. not as fast as it used to be. (I am using it for more than 4 years now).
      2. if i put the watch down with diagonal position: the crown touch the table, the watch will be able to hold for about 3-6 hours. IF, i put the watch on the table, and the crown does not touch the table (again, diagonal) it will take less than 1 hour until the watch stop. IF i put the watch down (Horizontally), the crystal touch the table. the watch will stop move immediately or in less than 1 minute.
      Can anyone help advise me what I should do? i wonder if it could cost so much to repair it? or just need some oiling things?
      Thank you so much.

      This is my first disassembly. The movement is a 7s26 from a Seiko 5 watch. It was running a few minutes at a time before disassembly. The oscillating weight was in two pieces. It appears the three pins(?) have all broken.
      My questions are: Can this be repaired? Is it as simple as pushing the broken pins out and replacement? What tool would I need to perform such a repair. I know I can replace the complete oscillating weight, but what fun would that be?

      Thanks for your time and knowledge,

      ERRORS IN THIS VIDEO:
      At 3:42 you may notice I have placed the Intermediate calendar setting pinion reversed. If you are following this video whilst rebuilding your 7S26 then please take note of this.
      At 4:55 you will see that the Intermediate pinion is now placed correctly.
      Even experienced watch repairers make mistakes sometimes

    • Dose it run in static positions, crown up, fcae down at 45 degree angle? Could pivot be slipping out of upper  jewel hole.
    • I like it...pure watch.
    • I usually grab the balance cock and then hold the cock and balance in my hand and then flip it over. Btw if this were not a watch repair blog and someone were to read what I just said, the site could be shut down:)

    • Just finished the Level 3 Watch repair course and it was great. Tons of great information and excellent instruction by Mark. Scored well too. Can’t wait for the Level 4 Course just to see it I’m doing it right. Great tips throughout the course as well.     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
    • Nice one Andy, but I can't help but wonder how that watch came to be. No branding at all is certainly not the norm. The chapter ring is a nice addition and I feel certain that it's a fairly recent design since it has the date but no day. More and more that complication is missing from new watches. Could you at least tell the country of origin from the movement when you had it open?
