Recently sent in my Seiko 7548 to Seiko to get running again. I just heard back that they can’t repair it due to not having the parts to do so. My father gave me this watch when I was young and the plan was to get repaired and gift back to him. Does anyone know who I can contact to maybe get repaired with after market parts? Any advice would be appreciated.

Get a working 7546 donor movement and swap out the problem parts. Did they diagnose the problem? Could be as simple as a coil or circuit change ....

DAHASCO's your best bet on this one. If it's just the movement that's wrong, it's a straight-forward movement or parts swap. The 7548 was built to last and is very repairable.

I’ve never worked on a watch before so I’m going to have someone with the knowledge take care of it. I appreciate your suggestion though.

What would be the asking price?
Not sure if that was aimed at me, but I posted just to show that a 7548 diver is fairly easily 'restored', as just about all parts are available.... As mentioned above, DAHASCO is your best bet, I see no reason why your watch can't be restored to fully working order.......and again as mentioned before it may well be as simple as replacing the coil and/or circuit.....

Haha, your post confused me when you said if yours isn’t repairable how but mine.........I’m definitely going to get mine repaired. Sorry for the confusion.

For those wondering what was wrong with Eric's Fathers watch...The issue was battery leakage, The date wheel was eaten away and the circuit board was trashed, New gaskets, Crystal, Cleaning and service. A few crappy pics. Thanks again Eric.
