I see you manufacture watches, Excellent...Please show us a sample of your work Please. TIA
But why? After what you write you can see that you know the watches so much that you know that ..... you can buy them.I see you manufacture watches, Excellent...Please show us a sample of your work Please. TIA
This thread is about something else and is not about my business.Thank You, You should display your work...After all this is a Watch Forum. Have a Great Day !!!
Only you are a watchmaker, if I am not mistaken and you can easily replace the old watch mechanism with a new one, and here the layman is offered such an action without asking about tools and skills ...I don't buy many new movements (some Swiss, some Seiko, some Citizen....) but the ones I do buy perform faultlessly ;-)
Ok. Short and sweet. Costs about $150 to service a 7s26, to buy a movement if you can swap dial and hands yourself is about $50.The thread deviated from the main topic ..
I was surprised by the advice to buy a new mechanism instead of performing a service, how much does it cost to service such a simple mechanism in the USA that it is better to buy a new one?

P.S. My watch was replaced with an inch. 8l35 because it was 2 minutes late, and although it is a high-class mechanism, I found out that "the machine adjusted it badly", what to say about the simplest Seiko mechanisms we are talking about .....

Simple math. Store the others till you can learn to service them yourself or as donors.
Nowhere have I written that I make thousands, only that I have purchased several thousand mechanisms over the course of several years, about 40% of which required adjustment....and,I would also like to see the watches that you manufacture. We like microbrands as well. If you do them in the thousands you must be on par with Helson or Obris Morgan, maybe even G. Gerlach.
As a Seiko Enthusiast your wares must be influenced in some way. Do share.
DaJesteś Polakiem to zrozumiesz.
Gość pyta czemu mu zegarki się zatrzymały, dostał odpowiedź że trzeba oddać do serwisu .. A tu się pojawiły porady przez wymienił sam mechanizm jak on może dekla nie umie odkręcić ... Totalny bezsens. może w Ameryce macie wszystko najlepsze ale w reszcie świata trafiają się suche tym bardziej że to najtańsze produkty robione w milionach w chińskich fabrykach.
Dalej się kleocie po plecach, powodzenia.
Are you Russian that you write in Russian? If not, read a book Poland is not Russia.
You got the answer to your question in the first three posts, and that should be the end, but a few guys feel that instead of taking the watch to a watchmaker you should do it yourself.Wow. Amazing how a thread can change gears in hurry. No matter what language
I thought of our conversation when someone first recommended changing the movement. I am going to try myself. I’ve removed and replaced hands on pocket watches before so I’ll give this a try.donoman, Please excuse the thread bending of the above ^^^ Back to the service/movement replacements. To service the movements will cost more $ than it costs to simply replace the movements. I have messaged you about this during our discussions about the pair of 7548's you sent me to repair. I have no issue switching the movements over for you. Gratis of course Please ignore the yoda as he just stirs the pot with no resolution.
Keep the original movement and when you arrive at "down the road" you can asses the value difference and make that call then. For now you get to enjoy the watch and hack and handwind itI thought of our conversation when someone first recommended changing the movement. I am going to try myself.

Someone suggested using the NH36 movement instead. Doesn’t that hurt the value of the SKX if I sell it down the road?
