  1. WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    Hi, all. I have recently acquired a very beautiful vintage (1995, I believe) Seiko AGS Spirit. This has the 5M22A movement and is cased in a single piece titanium case with a matching titanium bracelet. The whole rig is extremely light and is in excellent condition. Capacitor, of course, had to...

    Hi SCWF, A quick question; what lubricants do you use on quartz movements? (Seiko 7548, etc). I've rebuilt a handful of C300s and I've got one that was literally soaked in WD40 that needs servicing (the previous owner sprayed the whole watch "liberally" with it to free up a stuck pusher which...

    Greetings SCWF, Reading about all the Seiko diver restoration threads here made me want to complete one of my own. So on my usual online trawls, I came across this: After the initial "What in the world...?" remarks, I figured it had to be a shrouded diver with the wrong caseback. A little...

    First time post: I have a new (to me) acquisition of a Seiko Kinetic diver with the 5M62 movement. The power indicator (PI) button is either partially or completely stuck. The watch may also need to have the battery/capacitor replaced. My question is this: the power indicator button actually...

    Hey everyone. This is my first post on this forum. I'm so thrilled to have found it. I recently got my hands on a great copy of the Seiko SQ100 Seiko Kinetic 5M43-0A90 watch, and I'm having a hard time finding the correct bracelet for it. I'd love to be able to find a suitable OEM, but I'm up...

    I inherited a 5M43-0A29 Seiko Indicator Kinetic wrist watch. From all indications, it appears to need a new capacitor. I downloaded the PDF manual and shook it a lot. It's dead. I watched a video on replacing it. But, I don't want to spend money on this if I can't fix the other problem: the...

    Hi all! :D I just discovered this site while searching for the manual to a watch I inherited, a Seiko Moon Phase wrist watch model 7F39-6029. I found instructions that I had already figured out on my own, but still I own other watches. 5M43-0A29 Seiko Indicator Kinetic wrist watch (broken)...

Sure enough it works...

    I have owned a Kinetic 5M42 for some 15 yrs or more but abandoned it in a drawer in disgust :mad: when it failed shortly after the warranty period ran out. With renewed interest and the help of this forum I replaced the capacitor with a Li Ion cell. All looked well initially, until I pressed...
