Hello,
I have two Seiko LM Specials and I would like to service them. Its hard to find a good watchmaker in India so I'm looking to service them myself. I would like to know if its possible for an amateur like me to do it by reading just the Seiko manual.
Thanks!

Hello Vinayj,
I also have a LM that I is on .y workbench waiting for me to dive in. It is a 5606.... Not really sure about the differences between the 5206 and the 5606 but I found this article really complete and I am sure it will be very helpful once I find the time to service mine.

Good reading and hope you'll find the way ....

You will need a special too to be able to get the rotor off. It wont be easy at all and i wouldnt advise you to leave the movement alone if you are not 100% sure you can do it.

5206 and 5606 are totally different movements.

I am going to make a post on them very soon. The thing is, they work well but one?s a little slow but I think I?m going to be reading a little more and possibly look for some help. Thanks for the answers!

Maybe try regulating the movement. You may get some decent numbers again. When it is not more than a couple of minutes daily it should be regulatable.
