  1. 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
  2. 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 and easy to read, i've had plenty of compliments on it and it is rapidly taking over as my daily wearer. The only niggles are that if you catch it in a reflection the dial looks very flat, in person it looks much closer to a sunburst and the rotor is a little noisy but ive gotten used to it and now i miss that a little when i wer my other daily wearer which is a quartz. Here it is on one of Steveo's honestly I think this suits it down to the ground an i rarely take it off of this. And for when it needs dressing up a little: the week after my birthday I went abroard for a conference and this made for the perfect 1 watch wardrobe as it looks great with a casual outfit on the green Nato but also works well on the bond when it need to be dressed up a little.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

  6. 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 Any ideas?
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Choosed some colorful straps for winter, whats yours ?
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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:
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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.

  20. Seiko Flightmaster Watch SNA411 with bracelet & 2 Nato straps - Mint Condition! eBay Advert
  21. 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!
  22. I was thinking about buying this Seiko: Amazon I would like to know some opinions from owners or just reviews, thank you!
  23. The name “junction club” is rather confusing as here Seiko should be mentioned....
  24. 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
  25. 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?
