FOR PERFECT CLEANING I USE BOTH ULTRA SONIC
AND
A GOOD OLE' ZENITH 4 JAR W/HEAT DRYING

FOR 75% OF MOVEMENTS I USE THE ZENITH
YET SOME PARTS GO INTO THE ULTRA SONIC NO MATTER WHAT
FOR THE BALANCE COMPLETE [W//HAIRSPRING] I USE HAIR SPRING CLEANER

SEIKO 6105  REQUIRING RESTORE

IMG_1050.JPG (55332 bytes)

AF-LUMINOVA
PHOSPHORUS AND ZINC

IS A MUST
DIAL AND HANDS

IMG_1081.JPG (34937 bytes)

DIAL WAS SILICONE WASHED
THEN LUMINOVA APPLIED IN 4 STEPS OF THICKNESS
NOTE: THOUGH CUPPED IN HAND IN LIT SHOP IT ZINGS

IMG_1090.JPG (50401 bytes)

I USED THIS USC TO CLEAN THE BUFFING COMPOUNDS OFF
IT TAKES TWO HOURS BECAUSE THE HEAT GENERATED FROM THE WORK
OF REMOVING SCRATCHES DENTS DINGS
REQUIRES FILES AS WELL AS COMPOUNDS 

IMG_1026.JPG (36101 bytes)

THESE PICS ARE THE END PROCESS
WE KEPT THE BEZEL INSERT
NO USE CHARGING A PATRON FOR SOMETHING NEW
WHEN THE OLD IS PERFECT
TOUGH SHOWING SOME WEAR
OVERALL IT IS PERFECT
WE DID REMOVE INSERT TO REFINISH THE BEZEL RING

IMG_1033.JPG (38487 bytes)

THE CASE FINISH IS SIMPLY RIGHT-ON

IMG_1066.JPG (47969 bytes)

I LUCKED OUT
BACK IN 1989 THROUGH 1994 I UTILIZED A LOCAL
AGED MASTER WATCH MAKER HERE IN ATLANTA
I DID NOT TOUCH WATCHES OUTSIDE OF PICKING THEM UP
BUT OVER THAT TIME I BEGAN TO SELF TEACH MY SELF
YET I RELIED ON THIS MASTER
16 YEARS LATER HE SELLS HIS SHOP
AN INDIAN COMPANY BOUGHT IT
WELL, I HAPPEN TO BE IN THE AREA WHICH IS 22 MILES FROM MY STUDIO
AND DISCOVER THEY HAD ORIGINAL SEIKO MADE PARTS FOR WATCHES
LIKE THIS CRYSTAL!

IMG_1032.JPG (48159 bytes)

SO I PLACED NEW SEAL AND INNER RING
THEN DROPPED THAT BEAUTY IN

IMG_1034.JPG (40512 bytes)

WITH CRYSTAL RING
BEZEL AND INSERT
SHE CAME OUT GREAT

I SERVICED BOTH OF THESE BEAUTIFUL WATCHES
AND THEY BOTH RAN GREAT..... EXCEPT ONE HAD A DATE PROBLEM
THIS DATER PROBLEM ALSO CAUSE PROBLEMS WITH NORMAL OPERATIONS

IMG_0806.JPG (47244 bytes)

NOTE THE PLASTIC WHEEL? NOTE IT IS LIKE A PACKMAN??
OR POSSIBLY PACMAN TOOK A CHUNK HIMSELF?

IMG_0804.JPG (56111 bytes)

THAT LITTLE GUY TRANSFERS

IMG_1028.JPG (38936 bytes)

SO I MADE SURE THE SEIKO THAT WAS IN FOR REPAIR WAS COMPLETED
AND, THOUGH  THE 6105 FOR RESTORATION WAS THE MOVEMENT THAT HAD TO WAIT FOR A WHEEL
I FULLY COMPLETED THE RESTORATION MINUS THE WHEEL

THOUGH I HAVE HUNDREDS OF CASES PARTS CRYSTALS BRACELETS FOR SEIKO DIVES
I UTILIZED EVERY SIMILAR WHEEL FROM MY STOCKS
THIS PART GOES OUT ALL THE TIME

SO THE RESTORE 6105 IS COMPLETED
DIAL RESTORED WITH CLEANING AND RE-ILLUMINATION
HANDS ILLUMINATED
NEW SEALS
NEW CRYSTAL
BEZEL RESTORED
INSERT POLISHED
MOVEMENT OVERHAULED & SERVICED
CASE BACK SANDED AND RESTORED
