  3. King Seiko medallions

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    Hi everyone, I've posted quite a bit over at OmegaForums. This question is more suited to this forum though. I've looked at King Seiko for quite some time now. I particularly like the 4502 types that are true high beat 36000 bph with the gold medallions on the back. I think I have a feeling...
  4. Seiko 5626-8001- Parts question

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    Hi SCWF, I have a King Seiko 5626-8001 that I am looking to get some replacement parts for. I see that some parts are for the 5626a and others just say 5626.

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    I've been searching for a 5626-7040, and I came across one recently for a good price. I started to get excited about it, but I noticed something unusual -- the only photo provided of the caseback is blurry and unreadable, but it seems like the caseback is removable. After doing some research...

    Watchmaking & Tinkering - Reference Materials
    This King Seiko open trough the glass. It also has a regulator screw between the lugs. The project is to change the glass (300V04GNS), but opening it I see the case has some rust that needs cleaning. I removed the bezel, glass and the stem. Where can I find instructions on how to take the...

Well, I had better not said that aloud - you know what the royalty is like, always demanding more, and you had better not mess with...
  15. King Seiko 5626 and the case back medallion

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    I notice something strange about the King Seiko 5626 and the case back medallion. Somehow not all of them have the medallion. Even the chronometer versions don't necessarily have it. What's up with that? Did it depend on the production year or something?
