I got this from my old man, he picked it up for basically nothing and knew I had been looking for one. It runs, hasn't been polished, bezel is nice and original bracelet.... But:

The stem is snapped, and flush with the crown - I tried soaking in alun but I think the stem is stainless. Called my watchmaker, he said he just had to give up on a watch as he could not get parts for it, save for a few things, but he would fix it if I find the parts.

Question is do I just buy a stem and crown? The push button to change date works, and I can see the cogwheel for turning the disc on the inside, can these parts be moved to a new stem?

I suppose eBay is just about the only source I suppose.

You could try https://thewatchbloke.co.uk/2015/01/09/a-schild-554/

Duncan is a great guy and had restored my Poque so he knows how to source parts, the Schlid on the front page of the link is my Father in laws watch which he restored for me, you can see the quality of his work, there are also examples of his work on Pogues which he specialises in . Hope this helps

You can still get generic stems and crown to fit, changing them an easy job, just lightly press in small dimple on the movement which is in line with the stem.

Hello


How do you know the stem is snapped? Have you removed it? If the stem was broken then you not have been able to turn the inner wheel or change the date. The watch probably needs cleaning. Your watch is in original condition and is worth repairing. I would be leery over using this watchmaker if he says to trash a excellent condition 6139-6002. A good watchmaker can find parts for almost all watches. It may take a while though.

I have bought items from this seller in the Philippines. He ships quickly and the items were correct and as promised.




Here is a pic of my 1975 Seiko Pogue I bought for $2.99 plus tax at a thrift store. I just got it back from all its servicing. Here it is on the day of pick up


Good luck

Cheers, I want it done locally though.

Because it's in 2 parts;) One in place inside the watch, and the rest inside the loose crown.


Have you removed it? If the stem was broken then you not have been able to turn the inner wheel or change the date.
We misunderstand eachother, I never said it could turn i said i could see the "wheel" that engages the ring when the crown normally turns. I can change the date by putting the crown where it should be and press, because it makes contact with the part of the stem that is inside the watch.

Nothing wrong with my watchmaker, and no one told me to bin anything - He just said he couldn't get parts for it from his suppliers - He is semi-retired and doesn't chase around for parts, If he cannot get it from his sources abroad or here, then he tells people to go elsewhere (he is old school, and doesn't use eBay and such).



I'm just a bit cautious with buying parts that I cannot tell for sure wether they are geniune or not (Not that i'd mind an aftermarket crown forinstance if it looked right, but I just don't want to get something that potentially damage more than it helps.

Thanks, and what a lovely watch it is.

What do you mean a generic stem? I mean it has to fit the movement, one not made by Seiko?

The items being sold by the Philippines seller are NOS OEM items. He lists a Seiko part number. All the Seiko items I got from him were still sealed in their blue and white envelopes

Another idea is to reach out to the Seiko & Citizen forum and see what they can offer.

Where is "local" for you?

There are people who specialize in these watches. And then there are people who ruin these watches.

I don't need to find a watchmaker, I attempted to find genuine parts.

Not sure if your finished with this post but a good source for 6139 info and parts is Home | Wrist Sushi - A Japanese Watch Forum 6139-600X is their specialty. You have a nice watch that needs $100 in parts to put it right. New stem and maybe a crystal and that would be worth a few hundred for sure.
