Recently got the SMY Kinetic on the Bay, a 5m63-0a10 black bezel model, and it's overall pretty nice--problem is the day and date wheels don't advance as the watch runs, and the date number won't move at all.
I can't afford a new 5m63 movement right now ($115.00 plus shipping), but I wondered whether I could put the movement from another, non-SMY 5m63 watch into my case? Cheaper, and good practice for future mods maybe?
Another possibility is a Hatori YT63 movement, at around $65.00. Anybody know if that will work, and if it's a good quality movement?
Please let me know what you think.
Anybody have a beater 5m63 watch or movement you could spare?
Thanks, Glassman Dave.

Yeah, if you pick up a beater 5m63 with a 3 o'clock crown, it should drop right in. You'll want to use the original case ring/movement holder...
