  1. THE JAPANESE WATCH DISCUSSION FORUM
    Hi, Is anyone able to tell me the date this watch was made? The resources online suggest August '82 or 92', but I'd like to narrow it down. I notice it has the "Daini" lightning bolt symbol towards the centre of the dial, and a 7009A movement - would this indicate an earlier year? Any help...
  2. WATCHMAKING & TINKERING
    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. The crown will change the day and date but wont change the hour and minute hands. It also wont click...

    Just a question of pure curiosity - not looking to start any battles over quality control or globalization or otherwise... I have a SNK809 and it states clearly on the caseback and movement that it is made in Malaysia. On the other hand, I just purchased a SNXS77 and it says nothing about the...

    I'm looking to pick up something reasonably dressy with a dark blue dial - a SRPB41, SNK793, etc. Even an older 6602 or similar would be fine. Round case and 35mm or greater is preferred. I'm not really interested in a diver, chronograph, or quartz - just a nice, three-hand mechanical or...

    So I made a (possibly uninformed...) purchase on the 'Bay a week ago and got a smoking deal on a 6306-8010 Silverwave ... I was originally planning on pulling the movement for a 7002 mod, but I keep going back and looking at it and am intrigued by the look... Maybe throw it on a Tropic strap or...

    Dear SCWF users. This is my first post here in the forum, although it is not the first time I've been here visiting. I will soon buy one or 2 Seiko watches (one of them is a new one, and the other one I will need your help). The thing is that I've seen on a website a user selling one Seiko 5...

    I have just inherited my late Father's Seiko and am looking to find an original wristband for it to replace the generic one he had fitted when the original broke. It's a gold finish Seiko 5 Automatic, Model # 6119 8093 and serial # 012131. I think it's from somewhere between 1968 and 1971...

    The are a lot of vintage Seiko 5 watches but I would like to know what Seiko 5 models are considered as grail or rare? Additional knowledge regarding this topic will be very helpful to everyone. Hope gurus can share their knowledge to other members :D

    I found this on eBay and was wondering if you guys could take a look and tell me whether this is real or fake. New to this forum so any help is appreciated! :)

    Hello, I am a new member here, and unfortunately my first post is going to be a very sad one. My late grandfather have passed on to me a beautiful, beautiful 70s Seiko 5. I have recently been involved in a motorcycle accident, during which the watch got completely wrecked (I came out lucky...

    Caught this Seiko 5 on the Bay for a pretty low price. Just liked the look of overall watch from the pictures. But I quickly realised it had a caseback that read 7S36-00A0, a movement signed 7S26 and a dial which says 7S36-00X4 R2 when it arrived. It had dirty lume on its hands which has...

    I purchased this watch almost a year ago from a man who was clearing out an old jewelry after the owner had passed. I've only worn it a few times since then and have decided to let someone else enjoy it. The watch is in incredible shape (not a bit of silver showing) and keeps perfect time -...
