  1. Hi. I joined this group a few days ago, but haven't been able to find an answer in the forum about charging my Seiko Astron 7X52, during our dark ... and often sunless UK winter. If there is and answer in the forum to my following question, then forgive me that I couldn't find it. I somehow managed to 'put away' my Astron in a drawer some 18 months ago and forgot about it until 10 days ago. After checking it over and finding no charge (not surprisingly), I placed it on a front windowsill, facing the sun (of which there hasn't been a great deal where I live) in the morning and moving it to
  2. Can anyone shed any light on this odd SKX I've got please. The bezel has 90 clicks, not the 120 that I would expect. I had the bezel off the other night to change the insert and found instead of a flat washer type spring with 2 pawls it has a long single wire that curves round inside the bezel and ratchets on a vertical toothed bezel track. Not 100% on the history of it, the bloke I bought it off thought it was a window display watch that had been in a jewelers in Australia. The movement had the expected 7S26 markings, as does the dial and when I managed to break it a genuine NH36 fits p
  3. I have a Seiko 7A38-7070 sports 100 chronograph which belonged to my dad and I absolutely love it. The minute sub-total dial is stuck in the 12 o clock position and resetting/calibrating the watch has had no effect. Anyone have any guidance on how to fix?
  4. Looking for the alarm spring for the Seiko Sports 100, H556-5029, lost mine when changing battery. Will it still work with out the spring, with the exception of the alarm functions? Thanks Scott - w9vhe
  5. As the ADs are beginning to open their doors again I wondered if anybody else is due to collect any new timepieces they ordered during lockdown? What did you pull the trigger on, or what are you likely to purchase in the coming weeks/months. I'm on the 7 day countdown to collect my Submariner Date. Can't wait. I say 7 days, I mean 6 days and 14 hours! Although if i'm being completely honest i'm already looking at adding a Seiko Turtle Save The Ocean to my collection.......I think I have a serious horological addiction!
  6. Hello Everyone, I'm a big fan of the Kinetic Auto Relay model, used to have three in my collection now only have one - thought I'd share some pics for everyone to see. I love the sleep mode function myself. Would love to hear from other owners - also let me know what you think guys in general.
  7. First post. Yesterday I was extremely excited to receive my new Seiko Turtle Padi SRPA21K1. Thought it was an absolute bargain as was in sale plus 25% off and another £20 discount code brought it down to approx £270. Sounded to good to be true, well yes it was. The shop had 5 in stock, I thought about it for a few days then checked only 1 left in stock so I pulled the trigger. So yesterday the watch arrived, opened the packaging and there was a white box opened that and revealed a white watch box. Now I thought that's strange as all the reviews and youtube vids I had seen
  8. I have been scouring the forum looking at Seiko's since joining. My current favourite being @mitadocKing quartz. Such a beautiful watch and in amazing condition. I thought I'd start off small and see if I could pick up something of interest, I managed to win a 1982 Seiko 5 for £30.00 which I didn't think was too bad. Let me know if you think otherwise. Not my photos obviously
  9. Hello All. I'm a fellow watch enthusiast from the North-East of England. I hope everyone is keeping well. I'm new to the forum but not exactly lol I joined a couple of years back, forgot the password/display name within the first few weeks, and wasn't getting a reply from admin so just left it! I'm back now mainly because I recently bought myself a cheap watch repair kit, dusted off the old watch storage box and started to give my watches the attention they required. Last time I did a full intro of my watches - this time I'll keep it short. Top Row - Left to right
  10.

  11. Hi I just bought a Seiko 5 SNXS77 as a gift for my son. The strap is the usual folded link Seiko 5 one. Does anyone know a good UK source of a solid steel oyster style bracelet? Thanks
  12. Well I did it, I saw the picture and I drank the cool aid and bit the bullet on an Alpanist. I actually got it last year but had it put aside as it was a birthday present for myself, I was lucky and picked it up from Japan before the price hikes and somehow it got through customs without a charge. I actually realy like it, the dial is very striking and i love the compass as it makes it stand out just that little bit, unfortunately the original strap was garbage but I have a couple of Nato's for it and it looks great! It keeps time really well and the lume makes it very useable a
  13. Hi Guys, I understand that this Baby Tuna SRP639 may be on the up and up! Are these becoming harder to source and if so should I ask for a high premium or sell it at all? Regards Astro
  14. So i was looking a very long time for this watch and finally got it, It’s a Seiko Olympic 7T42-7A50. I couldn’t really find any information on the internet for this particular Model.
  15. Morning, I have owned this Seiko Sports 150 for about 8 years. I got it from my brother-in-law who bought it new about 18 years ago. The only issue is that it has not worked in years. I have been unable to find a specialist that can fix it - it's not a simple battery change. Does anyone know of a reputible watch specialist that can repair my watch and also replace/buff out the damaged crystal. I live in Manchester.

  16. Good afternoon all! I've been trying to find out about my Mum's Seiko which she had for many years and so far I've drawn up nothing. I vaguely remember as a child it being a bit of a thing when she bought it and certainly looking at it now it doesn't compare to another Seiko she has. This one is much heavier (37g) and "special". It's 14K gold as stamped. Any other info from anyone? Any hints as to where I could find more? She travelled a lot so it was perfectly possible (likely) she bought it in Japan. On the back it has: 748135, underneath 14K, and then under that 0525
  17. I have a seiko 6309, and when I advance the time, with the crown to the second click, the day indicator continuously advances as I wind the hands the day and date change off the first click of the crown, and advance at 12.00. Can anyone advise what I'm looking for when I strip it please? What makes the day wheel move in sync with the hands? Thanks for any hints.
  18. Hi all,I have two seiko quartz, an A158 5059 and an A021 5000. I would like to place them in their original boxes. Can anyone advise which boxes these models should be in, or maybe have pictures of them? Thanks. Matt
  19. Choosed some colorful straps for winter, whats yours ?
  20. Hello All, Got a bit of a funny one with a seiko 7F39 moon phase movement. The stem keeps falling out, I've had it open and tried to diagnose. As far as I can see, the Setting lever is catching the stem in the first position but as soon as I pull it into the second time setting position it doesn't catch and just falls out. The Yolk is properly attached to the clutch so I can't see that is the problem. Could it be that the setting lever is just bit worn? I'm thinking about bending the lip that catches the stem so it stays engaged. I'd rather not bodge it but I can't find
  21. I need some typical beginner advice please. I intend to replace the crystal in my basic Seiko 7S26-0480. Not to upgrade but because it was broken in smallish pieces. My question is do I press the new crystal with the bevelled edge bevel face down or bevel face up.? I should have checked when I removed the damaged one but as I say it was pretty wrecked. I have the basic tools, press etc and I have watched some tutorials, tested the movement isn't damaged, ensured dust free environment (under a whisky glass on a lint free cloth) et al, but then hit this dilemma. I won't compound my lack of knowl
  22. The year is 1976. I was a newly minted constable in the Queensland Police Force. My first day on the job, someone asks "Why aren't I wearing a watch?. Every copper has to have a reliable watch." So, at the first opportunity I popped down to the local jeweller's to pick out a watch. The one with red on the ring thing and a couple of buttons on the side looked interesting enough. The price was right and it was a Seiko. I knew precious little about watches but I knew about Seiko watches from my Dad who had purchased a couple during his tour of duty over in Vietnam in 1966 and he swore by them. So
  23. This is a watch i bought from eBay last month, i have to say the watch impressed me. It's a Chinese brand you may not heard it before, neither do i, the brand called San Martin. I found they made a lots of bronze watches which really interested me, and finally i decide to take this one. so far i'm very pleased for this watch. Here i just want to share some of my experiences, i talk about it as i'm a fan of watches, and a collector of good watches. here we just go for this watch. The watch diameter is around 39mm, include crown around 42mm, thickness is around 12mm, wea
  24. Hello all, I'm new to the forum. I want to create a mod for a an invicta pro diver inspired by the Omega Seamaster Commander. For this, I'm looking for a white dial with applied indices and a date window that will fit the Seiko NH35a movement. I found similar things, I found this dial, but it has no date window. I also found this dial which looks perfect and this dial which is also good, but they are for a MIYOTA 8215, 821A & 8205 and not Seiko. Could you please help me find what I'm looking for either the first one with a date window, or one of the latter two that fit a Seiko
  25. Hi there, Wondering if anyone out there could point me in the right direction. I have been looking for a Seiko 6139-6002 for a while and not really pulled the trigger due to the worry about buying one that had been made up of OEM parts, seems to be the case with quite a few out there. Hopefully someone with more knowledge than myself (this wont be hard!) would be prepared to cast an eye over the below picture and give me their thoughts? Many thanks in advance for any advice.
