Hi,

Can anyone give me some advice on how to remove the dial on a citizen 6850 watch, please.

Details of the size, type and fitting of the crystal would also be much appreciated.

many thanks...

Thanks. I'd already found the manual - It's the only info I've been able to get off the internet. Unfortunately it sets out everything but the instructions for removing the dial.

I've include some pictures of the case and the movement below. The forum wont let me put the actual pictures or hyperlinks in this thread as my post count is too low, so I'm afraid you'll have to cut and paste the following into a browser.

Thanks in advance for any help...

The dial feet appear to be a friction fit in the plastic movement holder -http://www.esslinger.com/miyotacitizen-ltd6w60-quartz-watch-movement.aspx Citizen6850 = Miyota6W50. 6W60 is the same base.

Thanks for such a quick reply.

Does that mean that I just have to gently prise the dial from the movement?

Also is there an easy way to determine the crystal size/shape from the markings on the case?

Apologies for what must seem stupid questions. I'm a complete novice at this and am only trying to repair this watch as it has sentimental value. Nobody here (including Citizen UK) seems interested in repairing it professionally, so I really appreciate your help.

Yes, gently does it.
If you post pics of the caseback - I'm sure someone here can help you with parts/ part numbers.

Cyrstal looks like it is press fit with a crystal gasket...press out, measure thickness and diameter and buy a replacement of the material of your choice (mineral glass or sapphire). Can't read reference number from your posted picture well enough to look up by case number. Regards, BG

Thanks 7s26b and BG,

The markings on the case are 6850-G81341Y and 530364. Am I right in thinking that they are the calibre, case number and serial number in that order?

Is there are resource for identifying the crystal size for the case? I have some basic kit, but nothing to measure the crystal to .1 of a mm.

Regards...

PS - one more post and I can include pics!

I've found a part number, but double check it and maybe email Citizen UK to check and see if they have one, glass 54-90415F
Glass gasket 393-7642

Thanks - that's great.

I'll contact Citizen UK, though they've not been helpful in the past. They just say its an obsolete model and can't supply parts.

As I'm not confident measuring it is there anywhere that would list the size of this glass so I can try a third party replacement?

regards...
