  1. The bezel on my ten year old yellow Seiko diver (4 O'clock winder) has become stiff. I removed it and cleaned out the expected black gunk from the case and circular spring and _some_ from the indentations in the bezel itself. The circle and springs look fine at an angle of perhaps 30 degrees. On putting the bezel back on it's just as stiff as before... Should I use white spirit to remove the remainder from the indentations? If so is it OK to soak it fro a few minutes?
  2. Thanks. I ordered the 22mm version and these were a very tight fit between the lugs. Then I tried to remove them... I had to bend them in the middle to remove. So I'll try ordering 20mm versions instead. Unfortunately they are out of 'single flange with extra large pip' versions until December 16th.
  3. I'm thinking these 2mm ones with double shoulder and extra large pip should probably fit most rubber straps? It does state 'ideal for diver's watches'. https://www.cousinsuk.com/product/double-shoulder-0200mm-18mm-to-24mm-extra-large-pip
  4. I'm buying some straps and thought I'd add spring bars to the order from Cousins. These are for my standard Seiko diver 7s26 ie 22mm length. But what diameter? These are for standard rubber straps so the 'fat' ones for bracelets won't fit. Does anyone know?
  5. Difficult to say... I ought form Roy about ten years ago - kept good time for a good five years or so. Then I had new Yobokies hands installed even years ago together with regulating. Hadn't used it for past few years then when I came to try it it loses a lot. I think just regulating would do it. So I guess any watchmaker who does automatics should be able to do it. Just don't know this area well as I last lived here 38 years ago!
  6. I'm living on the Wirral at mo. My Seiko yellow diver needs regulating - its running 5 mins a day slow! Does anyone know of a good watchmaker on the Wirral or Liverpool or North West area to takeout? Thanks, Steve

  9. Looking at Roy's for sale items - they come in various contrast stitching colours. I have a common Seiko diver 22mm width. But I use the fat Seiko spring bars with all my straps/bracelets. Do these straps accept that size? Does anyone have a photo of their watch on these straps? Steve
  10. My second Z22 in three years has split. Can anyone suggest an alternative rubber type, possibly available in different colours? Steve
  11. I've just received a nice Hirsch Carbon/leather/rubber strap. I have slim wrist and need to put one extra hole in it. What is the best method? I was thinking of starting off with a small awl then widening the hole, if necessary, with a hot pin to melt through. But I don't know how the carbon fibre layer on top would react to this. Steve
  12. has not set their status

  13. I wonder if Roy's "22mm Heavy Duty Rubber Divers Strap - RD22-1" take fat spring bars? See: http://www.rltwatches.co.uk/acatalog/waterproof_.html Steve

  15. Mr Teatime; that looks exactly as I'd hoped it might! I did a search on TZ but get: "You do not have the required post count to view this forum" - a new policy I believe. So still searching for the mod procedure.
