any 'how to' guides that could walk me through replacing the copper wound coil on a Seiko diver watch? I have a lot of micro tools and have replaced winding staffs and capacitors but have never really got into the guts of a quartz.

Hi it depends what model you are talking about, but if it is something like the 7548 movement then after taking the battery strap off there are just two screws to remove and the plastic back cover lifts off and the coil is then free, it is literally a 5 min job I know because i have just done one in the last hour ;)

Thanks for the guidance and the link.

Indeed, it is a 7548. Now I just have to find a replacement coil, or parts watch, but it is good to know that I can use a 7546,7549 and of course a 7548 coil.
