    Hi all. This is my first forum post so apologies if I do not explain my issue properly. I have a Grand Seiko 1964-0020, a lady's hi-beat watch from 1970. It was running about 60s fast per day, so I thought I would de-magnetize it and adjust the regulator screw. After demagnetizing and starting...

    Hi everyone. The first press on my LED button doesn't work and feels harder to press - feels like the internal rubber or spring is faulty. Then it returns to normal for a few hours. Not a huge issue but I worry it will get worse. Is there a possible fix without getting extra parts? It's a...

    I am looking for help in a repair/service for my 7a28 7049 Sports 100 chronograph watch. The leftmost sub dial, which should measure minutes elapsed, is not working. I’ve gone through the standard calibration and reset instructions I’ve found online to no avail so my suspicion is there is...

    EDIT: WARNING TLDR: seiko 7016-7000 are bezel fit crystal and not from pushed in crystal ! Here is an Ok video on how to fit such a crystal. Hi, I have recently bought a watch press, and used it to remove a watch crystal from an old seiko with a mineral crystal so I could clean the chapter...

    Hi, I am currently restoring a seiko 7016-7000, and when I reset the chronograph the second hand jumps around and doesn't necessarly reset to 12 o'clock. When I manage to secure the second hand the best, it might happend that when I reset between 30 seconds and 60 second (so the second hand...

    The bezel pip on my BB58 fell out so I returned the watch to the retailer in May to send it off for what I assumed would be a routine repair. I was informed after around 6 weeks that the watch would also require a service. In total, I've now been waiting for 5 months and have just been told that...

    Haven't been in the forum in almost 10 years, glad to see the names I remember are still around! Looking for some direction here - I originally shared some pics of my wedding watch but since then I've just been enjoying wearing it in part of a rotation. It has been running within COSC specs...

    I bought this watch ( hasn't been delivered) and it looks like it's missing the crown and stem. I'm looking for a part but I'm not sure of the movement model number. Can anyone help identify it?

    Hi All, Just wanted to share my experience getting a vintage Datejust serviced. This watch was given to my by my brother as a graduation gift. It also happens to be a birth year watch. So lots of sentimental value. For the longest time, I didn't wear it because I really throught Rolexes...

    Good evening! Here is my Pulsar that my fiancee gave me as a wedding gift in 1994. Yes, we're still happily married! It doesn't run and is stuck at the time and date shown. I took it to a local Citizen AD, but they said they couldn’t fix it. I'd love to get it running since it is so sentimental...

    So my first automatic watch was a gift I received something like 15 years ago — a lovely little Lüm-Tec C1 that I had no idea how to care for. I didn't understand what a screw-down crown was at the time, which this poor little guy did not have, and routinely took it into the pool (I know, I...
  14. Grand Seiko
    As a Grand Seiko owner, I read this thread with interest when my SBGR253 (Caliber 9S65) suddenly started losing 15+s per day after previously keeping freakishly good time. The watch was still under warranty, so it made sense for me to take it to the Seiko Boutique in the CBD to get it serviced...

    I want this exact. The original bezel is different. Where can I go to get this done? I don't know where to get the bezel or how to mod the watch.

    Hey folks, I unfortunately lost the crystal on this Softwatch Exaequo #92007. Does anyone know where I could get a replacement crystal made or even purchase a second hand one? I tried a bunch of shops in NYC with no luck. Appreciate any and all help. Thanks! -Mo

    I'm considering buying a watch that isn't keeping time correctly and whose cronograph isn't working at all. I assume that they've tried a new battery. Is it worth buying it? If I bring it to a watch repair will they be able to fix it?

    My dad has a Raymond Weil 2813, with a gold-plated back that is pitting to the point of having holes in it. To get it professionally refinished looks like it will cost about half the value of the watch, and given the fact that this is not a heirloom piece and the holes are on a part of the watch...

    I need your help, badly. I have an older model spinnaker Cahill and I broke the glass bezel. I am trying to find a replacement bezel. The Dimensions of the bezel insert is: OD:38.5 ID:32. I cannot find a bezel for my life that fits these dimensions. Would a 38mm look okay? Or would that look...
