Just acquired this stunning Seiko H461A (circa 1985).
It was love at first sight and reminiscent of my school days as I remember these in the jewellers shops!
The seller said it just required a battery replacement.
BTW: The best battery is Seizaiken - SR41W (392)
As I struggled taking the case back off, I had to take cough up and invest in a case back opener and
a watch press tool with a selection of dies.
It came off effortlessly!
Having taken the back off, I decided to clean-up the inside with alcohol and an earbud.
In the process, a little brass spring (see picture) popped out.
I think it was from the location marked with the arrow, but I could be wrong.
Is there anyone out there familiar with the part and where it goes (I presume leg downwards)?
Help with be greatly appreciated
