First Timer - Attempting to revive a 6119-7000
So, I have decided to document my misguided attempt at reviving a Seiko 6119-7000 I got from ebay. If nothing else should be a good horror story for those out there who know what they are doing! And let me admit, I went about this backwards - I started dismantling the watch with no real tools and having read up nothing. Still, in for a penny and all that, and it's been a learning experience that's for sure. One thing I did do right though was to take lots of photos.
So here is the beasty (it's the one on the right of the pic):
So let's open her up then.
I saw some scratched writing on the inside, which I now know means that it has been serviced previously. Good sign?
If I'm right, I press in here and should be able to get the crown out...
Unfortunately, try as I might it would not go back in though!
So now I can get the movement out (and you can see by now I'd bought a cheap chinese kit for about £1.50!):
And I also bought some hand pullers, but can you see what I did trying to get the crown back in to align the hands before I pulled them? That's right, where has the hour marker gone from the 4 position? Into my parts box, that's where! Lesson One- dials are quite fragile.
So I then took off the dial, and found writing on the back of that too, is that normal?
This is a bit of a mess, will probably have to be replaced.
And then - well I just started taking it all apart. Logical order? Hmmm, maybe not.
Oh dear. These probably shouldn't have just fallen out of wherever they fell out of.
Somewhere round here was it?
Bugger. Another one.
And so it continued...
...until I got to this:
Stopped here to wait for my Essence of Renata to arrive from Cousins to use in combination with my cheap ultrasonic cleaner. Just one more surprise for me on the kitchen table a day or so later, oops!
Stay tuned for the next thrilling episode, when our intrepid hero learns the hard way about mistakes you can make with an ultrasonic cleaner and starts reassembly and oiling!
Hope this hasn't been too boring!

If you lose any parts or have worn parts, I have spares.....pm me
If you haven't already, read it .....https://www.thewatchsite.com/files/Se...uals/6106A.pdf
More useful than the 6119 guide as they are similar but this has exploded views of watch
