    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    Hey all, currently in possession of two vintage Citizens (both with the 8110 movement) that need quite a bit of work and love to get back into wearable condition. If anyone knows of a good member of the community who could assist/advise on repairs I'd be eternally grateful!
  3. Seiko The Great Blue

    Parts, Tools & Accessories Reviews
    Hi There, My late mother bought me this watch back in 2001 from Singapore Airport. I have had it serviced regularly by Seiko UK in Maidenhead. Recently it stopped and I thought it was the battery but I also noticed the second hand had come adrift. I took it into Seiko UK in Maidenhead and...
  4. Citizen 4-095111 Y Repair

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    Hi all, I've gotten stuck on a Citizen 4-095111 Y. It works, but the digits are too dim to see unless you really look closely. The battery is confirmed good at 1.5v. I removed and cleaned all the battery contact parts with no luck. Normally, I'd disassemble the module, but holly molly, the...
  5. Seiko 6309, 6105 repair

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    Hey, First question is, is Randall Benson still around? I have a 6105 8119 that he serviced and converted to a screw down crown that needs servicing. 6309 just needs movement service. Any suggestions on who else I can send these to for service? Thanks!
  6. Alarm repair question.

    BELLMATICS FORUM
    I have a Belle where the alarm goes off every time I pull out the pusher- no matter where the alarm bezel is set. Is that something that is easy to repair? Is it just re-seating the alarm bezel for example? The bezel rotates fine. I still haven't found anyone in US to service my Bells. Thanks.
  7. Help! Seiko 6117-6400 Needs Repair. Where to send?

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    I posted over on WUS and someone pointed me to come here, which is great. Copied text below: I have a vintage Seiko 6117-6400 with two problems. The first problem, which occurred not long after I bought the watch, is that the inner rotating bezel barely works. It will occasionally grab and turn...
  8. Seiko Quartz 9983 / 9980 needs help for repair

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    Recently I got a Seiko Quartz Superior 9980 which does not run. (Tested with new battery, setting time is possible) Is anybody out there who's able to repair that caliber?

  9. 7223 Project - Need some help!

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    Hello everyone. I (fairly) recently purchased a 7223A-6010 for very cheap at a vintage fair that was losing about a minute in 5. I'm up to the point now where I need to start reassembling the watch but before I can get started I need to find some replacement gaskets. Problem is I have no idea...

  11. Seiko Moonphase 7F39-6029

    Seiko Reviews
    My poor watch has a conflict with the hands. I just got it back from the jeweler where they attached the band and installed a new battery. However, the second hand stops when it hits the hour hand (as pictured) and sometimes the minute hand. Macy's says they can repair it in three weeks for...
  12. Should I invest in a toolkit?

    Seiko Reviews
    I'm wondering if I should invest in a watch repair tool kit? I love to tinker. I love watches; I own a handful. I'm a photographer (I don't know if that helps) with a macro lens. I'm also retired on a fixed income, so something affordable like a starter kit would be desirable.
  13. Seiko Indicator Kinetic broken?

    Seiko Reviews
    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...

    WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    This is my father's old SKX which is what got me into watch collecting. However it has been in-operational for five years and Seiko NJ couldn't repair it. They stated the parts were too old. I am very interested in fixing this watch as it has high sentimental value. Thanks for viewing, -Chris
  17. Orient spare parts availability

    THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    Hi all, For a long time I had been trying to find a source of spare parts for Orients, and no one on any forum had been able to give an answer whether they were available in the same way Seiko parts are. There was always lots of vague speculation, but no concrete answer. Well there is now, I...
