    • White sparkle is what I put in my ensuite. Tbh I think it looks awesome! Not you can see it in this picture 
    • Help, pulling my hair out wondering. I have a 1980's Seiko 5  and have worn it for a few years, suddenly the Logo above the 5 has literally disappeared. Where ?????????????????????? I have looked and looked with various magnifying glasses and it is not under the glass or on the dial anywhere? Only thing I could think of is did it somehow slip into the day date area? But it keeps time and day/date perfectly? You can see the 2 mounting dots on the face but that's all. Its a 7009-3040E if that helps. Is it expensive to replace as its an heirloom , also how much would a new "glass replacement " cost . I am a newbee so be gentle  
    • try and warm the Waltham up, like wrapping it in a tee shirt and putting it on a warm radiator.  Once it is warm give it a flick of the wrist, and see if anything moves.  if the oils are old and dirty the warmth can lower their viscosity and the wrist flick might just start it.  The incorrect but widely used term is overwound, which often can be rescued with a bit of routine servicing. The top bridge, the plate that look like an elephants trunk, has four oiling points for the pivots that look dry.  Don't try and oil it yourself unless you have the right oil and experience - too much oil can be worse than too little
    • Roy, you are a star. Thanks for answering my daft question. I am one step closer to pressing the button regards Chas
    • It represents the date. The hand with the blue arc on the end points to the current date.
