Default Seiko 6139A that needs some work

I am going to restore a Seiko 6139A and at first glance, it does not look good. The counter weight "rotor" was green and the ball bearing frame was corroded and needs to be replaced. I will need to source a new part

You are a master of the understatement

With that amount of corrosion you may need more than a replacement oscillating weight and a bit of luck.

If you need a weight send me a PM and I will have a look when I get home from work.

holy! I hope for you I'm wrong, but I'm afraid the rotor isn't the only thing that needs to be replaced.

I also had to replace the framework for the rotor. All done, watch completely restored. YouTube videos to follow.
