Picked up 2 new to me Seiko's a 7625-8043 & 6106-6000 and have some questions. The 7625 from June of 68 runs like a champ but needs a crystal and a case polish. Only issue is when I opened the back a little screw was loose in the case, does anyone have a picture of a 7625 movement without the rotor? Had a similar issue in a watch, in fact looks like the same screw, I picked up a month ago. Figure it can't be too tough to fix, my watch guy had it done in less than an hour.

The 6106-6000 from May of 68 is in great shape with the main problem being it is missing its bezel. Any idea where I could find one? Also, is there an easy way to set the day? I can get the date to change by pushing in the crown but I have to spin the hands to change the day.

Thank you

Nice pair of Seiko's!

The 7625 has an acrylic crystal so you should be able to polish it without much trouble. No idea about the loose screw but if you look closely you should be able to sort it out.

The early 6106A movement only has a quick set date. To advance the day you have to turn the hands past midnight until it changes and then back the time up to about 11pm and advance it past midnight once again. Repeat until you have the correct day.
Casing guide lists # 83369709 or #83369701 as the correct bezel.

Thank you, I will see if I can find a bezel. Another question, my crystal guide does not list 7625-8040 or 8043 any ideas on Seiko crystal number?
