Hi guys

Got a 1968 watch with a 7625A movement and the date wheel changes but not by the crown, I thought this would be an easy fix for a newbie. I worked out how to get the movement out and I now want to take the dial off to have a look whats wrong. How do I stop the movement so I can take the hands off? Do I just let it run out of steam?

Thanks

Hi, I guess you already know this - but the crown only has a semi quickset, you have to turn the crown back to 9pm and forwards to 12 to change the date . Here is a blog http://thewatchspotblog.com/?p=179 and a review by Sir Les http://pippick.com/reviews/seikoreviewpt1.htm . You'll need to wind down the main spring in a controlled manner to stop the movement - usually with a screwdriver holding back the spring tension whilst easing away the click spring.

I did know about the semi quick set after researching the movement, but only about 1/2hr before posting this. Anyway I feel stupid because after reading your post I tried one more time to get it to work and realized that I was only winding it back 15 minutes and not 3 hours :-[ So it works fine - so thanks.
