I've tried to service a tiny Seiko 2601 Automatic movement very small for me (18 mm)
So I finished yesterday all was ok I've rewinded and I was happy because the balance started I've not checked amplitude or precision (for me just ticking it's already something)
Today I check and the watch have stopped and do not restart even when I rewind manually.
Now when I put the main spring back in the barrel I've broken the end part at the opposite side of the pinion it was like a V because I don't have a main spring rewinder so I make it manually (Shame on me).
So I suspect that the main spring is not clamped in the barrel and it's just spinning inside without giving any power to the movement.
The question is what method can I use to check my assumption. Not forget It's an automatic movement.
Good day all,
I'm a recent 30 year retiree and elected to start cleaning some of my older watches that ended up in a box wrapped in a towel. One in particular, a gift from my grandfather, began working with a new battery but the crystal appears foggy.
I would appreciate specific instructions for removing the stem/ crown and cleaning the crystal from an 1980 Seiko with the 6030A movement.
Thank you in advance.
I have a Krieger Gigantium Automatic Watch, but the stem of the crown is broken,
I am not sure about the movement, I think it is Self-Winding Automatic Swiss Made 25 Jewels ETA, anyone of you know?
Do you know who or where I can contact or buy the correct stem?
