Dear All,
I had an question for which I was hoping to get some assistance from the knowledgeable on this forum. My watchmaker is restoring a 62 MAS which is missing a date ring. Will any other more easily available calibre date ring, be a correct fit for this calibre? Any assistance will be of great value.
Regards,
JaRe

Many of the 62xx family of movements could be potential sources of replacement date dials as long as they come from cases with the crown at 3. I think the part number is 0801870 and is common to 6205, 6206, 6217, 6220, 6222 as well as a few of the earlier incarnations of the 62xx familiy such as the 395. Just look for cheap 6205's on Ebay with crown at 3 and you will have effectively a complete spare movement from which to farm parts as required.

What he said ^^^^^^

6205's are a pretty safe bet as most selfdaters had a three o'clock crown, 6206's mostly came with the 4 o'clock crown. If you see any M88 sealion 6206's they have a square case and a 3 o'clock crown. Good luck, there are plenty cheapies out there and if you're lucky you'll find one with a good balance, clutch and date corrector too, three of the most wear prone components.

If Stefan (seikochrono) cannot supply you with these I brought a nos one recently and can put you onto the guy who supplied mine. It was the same date wheel out of the 6205/6. I know he had another 4 or 5 when I got mine a couple of months ago.

Thanks >>>

All for your replies. I will seen If I have any in stock in my parts watches. I may need the contact of people who stock them if nothing comes up.
Would the date ring of the 6217 worldtime fit in a 62 MAS?

No I doubt it as it is a 4 o'clock winder on the Worldtime. Must be a 3 o'clock winder. I actually brought this watch to scrap it for the date wheel for my 62MAS that Tom Hickman was restoring:



but when it arrived from Speedtimerkollection it was too good to scrap! I just couldn't bring myself to do it so I found some NOS items from a guy in Saudi for about £10GBP instead.

Liking that case style Tony, I agree - far too nice to break!
