    I've recently purchased a Seiko 5 with a 6309a movement in it. The issue listed by the seller was that the face was loose, so that was an easy fix, but the crown also wont seem to set properly.

    I've seen it stated many places that a 6309 crown should turn at least 1.5 complete revolutions when screwing down. However, some people post that their crowns take three or even four turns to screw down. Is this possible? I own three 6309s and their crowns all take just over two complete...

  7. Sealing the 6105 stem seal with teflon tape - it works!

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    Today I successfully found a workaround for replacing the crown seal on the 6105: I wrapped the stem with teflon tape and added in a little silicone grease and bob's your uncle.
