  4. Seiko Monster 2nd Generation Bracelet Pin Size/Model?

    I received the SRP311K1 today, went to pick it up at the local 7-11 Amazon Locker ( just enter the code and the locker opens! ) I had to adjust the links. Long story short I might have messed up some of the pins and collars. Some of the pins seem to come out a bit from the link and do not...

    Hello WatchuSeek, My first post! I've just purchased a Seiko SSC019P1. I had the bracelet adjusted by a jeweller, but it seems his young assistant did the job. They now cannot find the collars that they need to re-insert into the strap to keep the pins in. I obviously took my watch away, and...
  6. Dial mounting pin positions

    Some movements are quite common yet extremely diverse (e.g. Unitas/ETA 6497/6498). You can buy numerous dials as parts of DIY projects. What I'm unsure about is the placement of the dial mounting pins. Are all movements of a given model (say, 6497) guaranteed to have mounting holes in the...

    Dive watches
    I purchased a VX-200 Chrono on a leather strap but I always wanted the bracelet. I later purchased a bracelet (actually from the same member by chance) but I had since given away the pins that came with the leather because I had some 23 mm spring bars that worked great and were easier to change...

  10. spring-pin holes wearing

    Casio G-Shock
    My newly-stealthed 8400 Muddie seems to have worn holes for the spring-pins holding the strap to go into, meaning that it regularly detaches itself at inopportune moments (often when putting on or taking off). I'm intending to take it to the States at the weekend - I'm booked on a boat...
