  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. Choosed some colorful straps for winter, whats yours ?
  4. 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 any replacement parts or movements, or even if there are any non seiko movements out there that can replace it. Any help would be great, this ones giving me a bit of headache. Cheers
  5. 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 knowledge my asking what size hammer do I use :-) Thanks In advance Dave W
  6. 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 the purchase was made. For the next 15 years that watch stayed on my wrist. Four years in a first response unit, three years in outback Queensland, chatting with shearers about whether or not they should retire for the night, meant that the watch and I regularly took a beating. Needless to say that this watch and I shared many adventures together. It was in the early 90s that I became a police diver and required a more suitable watch, so I retired the Seiko and bought a Tag 1500 Pro which I still wear from time to time, to this day. The wife, the Seiko and I became separated and it was for another 15 years that my daughter was able to retrieve the watch on my behalf. That was six weeks ago, the watch still goes after a bit of a shake but is badly in need of some TLC. The pushers are jammed up with gunk and as you can see by the photo, the glass could do with replacing. So off to the doctor's it goes. That's my story about about a 6139-6002. It hasn't been into space but it's done just about everything else. Cheers Hog Seiko 6139-6002, a little worse for wear Seiko 6139-6002-At the Post Office Tag 1500 - Still on the wrist
  7. 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, wear on my wrist just a perfect size, the movement is Seiko NH35, the case use bronze material, on the picture you can already seen the oxidization already make it became more brown, the finishing is brushed around the case body, now it seems more like a sandblasted finishing, and i thought it would be rusted by the sweat if i wear it in summer, but i found the case back is made in stainless steel which avoided this problem. You can't see any logo on this watch, but it's fine for me, the seller told me they provide service for customized logo on dial, but it will take some to do it, so i just pass it. For the dial, i found they have a lot of versions, and i also picked some photos on their website.these version they have black, blue and green colors. and the tracking printing on dials used SLN C3 luminous oill from Switzerland. Same for Hands. I really love the lum effect, it just light up the watch. the strap they told it's top layer cow leather, for me it's a little bit hard to wear, i would like it to be more softer, could wear more comfortable, the strap has quick release by the way, the strap width is 20mm, and i have some other nylon nato straps, which just easy to change and it just amazing match, and looks also nice. Talk about the water resistance, this watch has 200 meters water resistance, i'm not try yet, i was planning to swim next week and wear this watch, i think it's may be a good choice for diving too. and i'm also expecting to see the finishing after diving. then talk about the price, i get the watch on ebay by $168, i think the price is very acceptable compare to the watches i bought before, i would say the same quality, San Martin watch have a better price to get. they have free tools by the way, for this watch they send free polish tool for watch case, and screw drivers, a set of booklets. it's a very nice purchase experience anyway. Last but not least, let me know your comments about this watch, like or dislike, or share your experience to me, thank you.
  8. 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 NH35a movement. Images of the dials in the links, in order:
  9. 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.
  10. used watch, needed repair and water over the dial. nice blue dial that read "seiko 30". i could not find any thing on that entry. there was no serial number on the screw back and when i got it off there was a simple 1 jewel movment. since i am retired, went ahead cleaned and repaired it.. has any one seen one like that?
  11. Hi! First of all, I'm new to this forum, so this is my first post. Recently I wanted to get a new watch, so started exploring online stores, forums and YouTube channels dedicated to watches, found out that Seiko 5 would be the best choice in this price group under 100 bucks (Problem is that I couldn't find the Seiko with delivery from Europe, ones from Asia would take several weeks). I also really liked the Luch designs (downside is that they are manual-winding) and Vostok Amphibia (I heard that they just don't keep the time too well). What are some other solid pieces you could recommend me getting under 100$? Mechanical movement would be the main priority, however some decent quartz is ok too, Also 'Swiss made' or 'Japanese made' on the dial would be also nice.
  12. Hi All, I am starting my watch collection, - I have been VERY fortunate to have been gifted a couple of beautiful swiss watches previously and these have fuelled my love of watches (Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean and Breitling Hercules) - I have also been able to purchase a Rado, which i love as a dress watch, but i really want to start to build a personal collection and was thinking of starting with these two. SRPB46 I really like the brown face, but also the blue face on steel. If anyone has any other suggestions that they think that i might like woudl be very happy to see them. Also im after a Dive watch of good quality but at the right price sub £500. I do like the SRP77
  13. I have a Seiko Sports 150 that has not been working as long as I can remember. I have tried to get it repaired at my local watch repairers, with no avail. Does anyone know of a trusted repair shop in Manchester or one that accepts the watch by post.

  14. Seiko Flightmaster Watch SNA411 with bracelet & 2 Nato straps - Mint Condition! eBay Advert
  15. Hello, This is what we have been tinkering with as a hobby project for a while: Décantheure Wine Watch. We wanted to give new meaning to the internal rotating bezel (from the 1960'ies diver's watches - introduced by the Swiss company Ervin Piquerez S.A.). We added some time arcs so that the HOUR hand (and not the MINUTE hand) is used to keep track of time intervals (0.5H, 1H, 1.5H, 2H and 3H). We also added a green mineral glass as see-through back ("wine bottle colored). We are also been inspired by the Pilot Watches where a lot of information has to be presented in a logical way. In particular, we have been inspired by the font styles used and the black dial with the white print. People may not notice but we used a very "German" font for the logo (used on airplanes around 70 years ago!). Some sommeliers find the watch too gimmicky (data is, however, based on literature studies and experiments), others see it as a proof that they are true cork dorks. However, it is a serious (but affordable) timepiece in an OK quality (some really don't like the Seiko NH35 movement but it is steady as a rock - if you buy the movements made in Japan). We are also been inspired by the Pilot Watches where a lot of information has to be presented in a logical way. In particular, we have been inspired by the font styles used and the black dial with the white print. The dial is VERY busy so we have made the case as clean as possible. The watch was fun to design - and a French watch blog (Montres de Luxe from Paris) really saw the innovative ideas (which made us pretty proud)! I, personally wear one of the prototypes every day now (giving the old IWC a wrist break). Cheers!
  16. I was thinking about buying this Seiko: Amazon I would like to know some opinions from owners or just reviews, thank you!
  17. The name “junction club” is rather confusing as here Seiko should be mentioned....
  18. Hi everyone, towards the end of September im going on holiday and have decided I’m going to treat myself to a watch in the airport depending on what’s there. I’m not going to be spending mega bucks because I already have an expensive watch that gets most of my wrist time. Instead I’m looking for something around the £300 mark that I plan on wearing as a beater. I don’t currently own a seiko and I have been debating a 007, however something is holding me back I a don’t know what it is. I do like the prospex line of watches and just feel that they are slightly more luxurious than the 007. so my question is what would you get? I would like an automatic movement as opposed to quartz/solar/kinetic etc but look forward to hearing everyone’s suggestions. Thanks in advance Jason
  19. Every now and then I get a bee in my bonnet to expand my options for watch stands. I try to get good former retail display stands. These can feature the logo of a brand you favor (or want to display), or are made of fine material (wood, plexi, leather). Some are made cheaply and wont survive the use and abuse of regularly having watches put them, taken off, put back on. Others are superbly made and will last a long time. Sometimes I get lucky and get some in VG or like new condition. This month I did a look-see and found a black, plastic one with the Nixon logo very discreetly embossed into one corner, hard to notice except in direct light. Suited me because I own no Nixon watches. What intrigued me was the elegant chrome arm coming up that supports the "C" band support in two positions: vertical 12-up, or a 45 degree angle dial up. In low light it sort of disappears and the watch appears to be floating (I'd guess this was never apparent in a brightly lit jewelry or watch store). Nice shape, good bargain for $11ish. The same seller had some Seiko stands, most of them sort of beat up and the coverings or material showing wear and tear, coming off the underlying base. (With some snazzy stands, when the covering gets scuffed or ripped, is coming off, the whole effect is ruined. Think of wood veneer that's peeled up and showing particle board underneath.) This one's in fine shape. I have no idea what model it was intended to display, with its carbon fiber pattern, and yellow highlight down the lateral center. I'm guessing it was for a sport watch, maybe with a racing tie-in. The "C" band support is huge, that's an issue I found with some stands: they are intended to hold a watch with the unadjusted factory bracelet (no links removed), so with small wrists like mine a watch that's sized for me doesn't a quite fit. Except for my 7S26 diver (SKXA47K), which has a diver extension on it (a small latch that expands the bracelet to fit over a wet suit, then locks away under the bracelet clasp when not in use). With the extension released, this lovely underrated watch stands proud on my new stand. Looking high speed?
  20. Hullo all, as I'm new here, hope you can give me a little information about these Pulsar Chronograph watches, YM62-X144. I bought these two Pulsar Chronographs from a dealer, both with faults & bracelets missing. I've since overhauled & replaced the defective parts in the watch cases, but would now like to find a pair of metal bracelets to complete the repairs. So far, my search for the bracelets has proved unsuccessful. I tried Seiko firstly, as the parent company of the Pulsar brand but meet with a very unhelpful response that the watch was no longer available & subsequently, no parts were still stocked. They wouldn't even point me in the direction of their dealer network to check old stock. Dealers & watchrepairers that I know were also unable to help. A few went out of their way to try & source the missing bracelets, to no avail. So I now turn to members of the forum. My options are to either find suitable replacement metal bracelets or refit the working mechanisms into other suitable cases, beit Seiko, Pulsar or Lorus, where they are readily available. As these watches are for my own use, I'm not too bothered about originality, more about functionality as I was impressed with the working internals of both watches. They both keep excellent, accurate time.
  21. Hello Watch Forum users, My name is Jakob Martin, and I have founded the relatively new watch brand Clairette Watches. We started by releasing two models at the beginning of the year and have now introduced two automatic models we intend to release on January 25th. Now we would like to get the feedback from the users of The Watch Forum! We are at the beginning of our journey as watchmakers but feel that we have been successful with our new automatic watches. In the future, we have already started sketching on watches in a slightly higher "premium" segment where we use movements such as 2824-2 (Top Grade), Valjoux ETA 7750, Sellita SW300 or ETA 2894. Then we will also have a release party in Stockholm, which you are more than welcome to. Sign up for the newsletter or follow us on Facebook to receive an invite. Brief information about our automatic watches: Our latest collection might be brand new, but it captures the spirit of vintage watches from the 1950's. With attention to every detail we are moving closer towards traditional watchmaking by using automatic movements, stainless steel cases, domed hesalite crystals, organic leather straps and many other features. You could say we are vintage watch fanatics who want to share our excitement with you. My own interest started when I inherited my grandfather Heuer Carrera from the 60's and since then it has grown. With our new collection, we offer vintage-inspired watches with automatic watches at great prices. We use Miyota's renowned 9000-series automatic movements, hesalite glass, dauphine hands, painted sandblasted brass dial and vegetable leather from Tärnsjö Garveri. Please read more here: http://kickstarter.clairettewatches.com Thank you for taking the time to read my post! /JRM
  22. In June 2017 I bought a Seiko Alpinist from Japan. It started off 15secs/day slow and deteriorated to over 30s/day. I sent it to the UK Seiko Service centre before Christmas and they insisted I pay £170 to have it serviced as the warranty was Japan only. On return it was fine for 2 days then started loosing time and after two weeks was 26sec/day out. I returned it to Seiko servicing and their supervisor claims there's nothing wrong. Have I've now spent £500 on a worthless watch?
  23. Due to poor impulse control, I've now ended up with 2 yellow-dialled Seiko chronographs. I'm going to flip one of them, just haven't decided which one yet. It all started when Roger the Dodger posted a picture of his yellow Seiko. Before then, I'd never considered yellow as an option, but that watched looked stunning and I went to eBay immediately! I'm not disappointed, both look great to me. Anybody else have any yellow watches?
  24. Hello! First time posting here, have a few watches myself. I've been eyeing up a few dive watches (Steinhart 500 Titanium/SKX013/SKX009 as well as few others) but for now think I'm going to get the special edition Seiko Prospex PADI some point in the next couple months. My question is mainly about the prices, on the Seiko website it's around £400 as well as few other sites, and in shops where I live. But on Amazon they are selling it (brand new) for £280.. I'm just wondering why/how there is such a price difference, is it the real deal? Do you get all the proper papers and certificates? Thanks for any replies, Oliver.
  25. Having stumbled across many dodgy indian Seikos on eBay, I saw this one with a lovely dial that I really liked so I thought I'd take a chance even if it is just a bunch of various watch parts thrown together. £13.50 posted and it runs fine (if only a fraction too fast). The dial is like a vinyl texture and looks great with the classy white text and red details. Case could be in better nick but for the price I can't complain. Movement is marked as an automatic 21J Seiko 7019a just as it was listed on eBay although I imagine it'll be made up of assorted parts on closer inspection. I think 1 "feiko" is enough for the collection but I'm certainly glad I bid on it as it will definitely do me fine for a daily beater until it dies. I'd originally thought I'd probably try and flip it for a small profit but it has surprised me! To anyone considering a cheap watch from India I'd say go for it if you like the look of it and it doesn't cost enough that you'd be upset if it didn't even arrive.
