Vintage Disney Seiko (Rotor screw broken).

Recommended Posts


i am new to this website , and first of all would like to say thank you to the community and the moderators for their dedication to build a helpful community forum like such. So i basically bought a seiko vintage, mikey mouse edition used from Ebay, it stated that it should be 100% functional and serviced. I changed the old, eye sore of a strap that came with and popped in another one, watch looks premium from far only trouble is watch stopped working. I figured it was the counter weight plate grinding to the watch cover . I tweaked it. I turned some of the gears to wind up time. Worked for a day or two and stopped. Same grinding problem again. I tried to tweak the counter weight plate but then it popped off. Anybody has any idea how to fix it back again? I think there might be a piece missing.

Thank you everyone.

Can't see the pictures. It sounds like you may have ripped the head of the screw off, that holds the auto weight. If the watch had a rattle, then it may be that the weight needs replacing. Hope this helps. Do you know the Calibre of the movement?

Hi simon, thank you for the reply, i dont remember if there was a rattle but i think there was! One thing i remember clearly is sound of the weight plate grinding. I thought there might be missing head screw. No idea how to fix it.

if you click on the link you would be able to see the images (sorry dont know how to post embedded images here yet). 

About calibre no idea. Let me check the ebay page.

Here is the watch description and if you still cant access previous images links let me know i will upload to this new website i found.


i tried to use post image from link option but for some reason doesnt work with the code html they gave me.


thank you!

thank you Simon , do you reckon I can get it fixed myself? in reddit someone said it looks like the screw is an integral part of the rotor so only way of fixing it is getting a donor and swapping plates? are donors cheap? is it doable for a newbie?
