First time painting watch hands and I could use a paint recommendation. I got a set of plongeur hands from Yobokies, but the orange Harold uses is a bit more neon than what I had in mind. I'm considering repainting the minute hand and the tip of the second hand to more of a "standard" orange -...
Hi! Question for those of you who are used to looking at restoration candidate watches:
When you you see gunk like this on hands and markers, do you assume that it's surface gunk that can brushed off, or corrosion that has eaten into the metal?
I'm being offered this watch, and I don't know...
Planning on buying my first set of hand levers (going with them rather than the EZ hand removal tool because good, thin hand levers can also be used to remove the 'C' clip that holds the day wheel in place) and just wondering if I should go for 4mm wide tips or 2.5mm wide tips. Buying off of...
Can any experts please chime in on whether you think these 6309 hands are authentic and original? So far my thinking is as follows:
Points in favor of authenticity:
Dial looks authentic
Rounded rear corners on minute hand arrowhead
Lume color and glow matches dial...
The 6119-605x 5 Sports "regatta" or "rally" are definitely among my favorite Seiko designs.
I am fortunate enough to have a couple in my possession, and there are pretty much identical but for the following:
The 6119-6050 dates from Feb. 69
The 6119-6053 dates from Nov. 69
The 6050 has very...
I'm in the process of modding a few watches and need to get some more tools. The watches I'm modding are your basic skx007/009 with the trusty 7s26. My question to all you out there is what sizes of hand setting tools should I get? I understand that the 7s26 has hand sizes of 150/90/20 but what...
Here's a set of three different divers. Two are 7548 and one is a 7c43.
One of the 7548's is a jdm version and it has the white borders on the hands like the 7c43.
The other 7548 has the bright silver edging.
Are these the correct hands for the jdm version? Did they come with white edging on...
I drew a blank last night whilst working on this watch - this happens reasonably frequently - so this time I thought I'd ask for help!
I've enjoyed re-finishing the case and servicing this one for my own collection; it's a brilliantly quirky looking thing and the movement is great...
I just got this 7T59 to play with and the 1/100th hand does not move around. Instead its just going back and forth.
The chrono reset function also moves the hand only one tick forward and one tick back.
The seller said the hand moves slow and it needs a new battery. As the...
I'm owner of KING SEIKO KS CHRONOMETER DATE HI-BEAT 5625-7040 Automatic B-1657
It's on the photo:
Hands are damaged and not original for this model :(
I need a complete set of hands for my watch just like this one:
Can anyone point me on good japaneese service or spare...
Got a Seiko Astron SAST021G a month ago which has its minutehand slightly missaligned.
The minutehand is 10 "seconds" ahead. There is no documented way for adjusting the minutehand other than the build in daily automatic routine that obviously does not take care of the problem...
