WWII ARASHI TIMER
FIRST CLASS NAVAL TIMER
FINISHED WITH SWISS BARS
PLATINUM GILD

 

PATRON DESIRED ROCK REMOVE A SEIKOSHA SEIKO TIMER MOVEMENT TO REPLACE
THE MOVEMENT IN A SEIKOSHA SEIKOSHA TIMER THAT IS SIGNED ARASHI W/KANJI UNDER DIAL
WITH KANJI ON THE BACK. WHEN ROCK ATTEMPTED THIS, HE TRIED MOUNTING THE SIGNED SEIKOSHA
DIAL ONTO THE SEIKO BUT IT WOUND UP BREAKING THE CENTER WHEEL PINION. IN ADDITION THE DIAL
WOULD NOT LINE UP. IN ADDITION, THE DIFFERENCE IN THE MOVEMENTS WERE DAY AND NIGHT
ALSO PROBLEMS DEVELOPED WITH THE CROWN. THE SEIKOSHA/SEIKOSHA HAS THE COOL MILITARY CROWN.

ALL IN ALL HE WAS ABLE TO REPAIR THE EXPENSIVE MODEL

LEFT IS  THE SIGNED ARASHI SIGNED SEIKOSHA MOVEMENT AND DIAL
RIGHT IS THE STANDARD SEIKOSHA SEIKO [ALSO MILITARY]
NOTE THE DIFFERENCE IN CROWNS

IMG_3892.JPG (99699 bytes)

WHEN ATTEMPTING TO USE THE LEFT SEIKOSHA SIGNED DIAL
ON THE RIGHT CASE AND MOVEMENT, SEVERAL HAIRLINES WERE REVEALED
DUE TO THE RARITY AND FULL SEIKOSHA SIGNING WE KNOW THAT NO LOSS OF VALUE WAS INCURRED

 

IMG_3898.JPG (113552 bytes)

THE NAME WHICH LOOKS LIKE "ARASHI" WITH FADED KANJI IS MARKED ON REAR OF THE SEIKOSHA DIAL ON LEFT

IMG_3906.JPG (117896 bytes)

I CANNOT SAY FOR SURE WHAT THE FIRST LETTER IS
UNDER A LOOP THAT IS KANJI TO THE BOTTOM ABOVE HEART CAM

 

IMG_3881.JPG (163611 bytes)

ABOVE WE SEE THE RESETTING POSITION
WHEN THE TWO FEET HIT THE HEART CAMS
HANDS RETURN TO TOP DEAD CENTER

IMG_3864.JPG (168354 bytes)

ALL THE PARTS OF THE SEIKOSHA ARE AS PERFECT A POSSIBLE

IMG_3905.JPG (143744 bytes)

THIS PIC SHOWS THE SCREWS ARE BLUED TO LEFT
I PIC RIGHT LOOKS ALMOST SAME, BUT IT IS DAY AND NIGHT

IMG_3896.JPG (90141 bytes)

IMG_3861.JPG (139166 bytes)

IMG_3895.JPG (104112 bytes)

BETTER CROWN ON LEFT

 

IMG_3903.JPG (135436 bytes)

WHICH ONE IS BETTER

IMG_3858.JPG (149333 bytes)

AMONG THE PROBLEMS ROCK DISCOVERED ONE WAS THE WORST HE COULD EVER FIND
THE LOWER --WHICH IS MOST IMPORTANT -- BALANCE PIVOT JEWEL WAS CRACKED AND CHIPPED
THE ENTIRE BALANCE SHIFTED AS IF BOTH PIVOTS WERE BROKE
THE PROBLEM MULTIPLIED WHEN HE REALIZED SOME ONE HAD RE-JEWELED IT
THE SIZE WAS SO WEIRD NO ONE HAD A JEWEL TO FIT
SO ROCK WENT THROUGH HIS REPAIR PARTS FOR SEIKOSHA

IMG_3845.JPG (160812 bytes)

HE FOUND ONE THAT WAS TWICE AS LARGE AND PRESSED IT OUT

IMG_3888.JPG (149880 bytes)

HE REMOVED THE SCREW DOWN OIL CAP

IMG_3862.JPG (105709 bytes)

THEN USED A PRESS TO PUSH HER THROUGH

IMG_3886.JPG (105519 bytes)

HERE IS THE JEWEL HE PRESSED OUT
IMAGINE THAT LITTLE GUY IS CAUSING THE PROBLEMS

 

IMG_3853.JPG (138384 bytes)

NOW, HERE IS A REPAIR I DOUBT ANY ONE EVER TIED. NOTE THE SUPER SMALL
HOLE WHERE THE PIVOT RESTS.SEE NEXT TO BLACK LINE

IMG_3859.JPG (189515 bytes)

HERE SHE IS AGAIN SEE SMALL

IMG_3887.JPG (124206 bytes)

ROCK USED A DIAMOND TIP TOOL. THE POINT IS BEVELED SO CARE HAD TO BE TAKEN,.
HE HAD TO ENLARGE THE HOLE ALMOST TWICE ITS SIZE
AND WORK BOTHER SIDES OR ELSE THE METAL WOULD HAVE BEEN BEVELED

IMG_3885.JPG (59682 bytes)

BAM! LOOK HOW PERFECT IT IS

THAT JEWEL WOULD PRESSED RIGHT INTO THE HOLE

IMG_3874.JPG (135972 bytes)

HERE ROCK CUT A CIRCLE OUT OF A BANDAGE
OILED THE BOTTOM SIDE
AND USED A JEWELERS PUSH TOLL VS THE 1100.00 UNIT HE OWNS
HE MACHINED THE SQUARE STEEL ROD IN A WOOD HANDLE
UNTIL IT WAS ROUNDED AND THEN CONCAVE ITS CENTER
THEN PLACED IN OVER THE BANDAGE AND PUSHED ONE TIME

YES, I KNOW, WATCH GUYS ARE GONNA GIVE HIM HELL

LOL

IMG_3855.JPG (155427 bytes)

HERE HE IS PLACING OILER ON THE SEIKOSHA SEIKOSHA

IMG_3847.JPG (122492 bytes)

PROPER BALANCE IS THE LOWER ONE
YOU CAN SEE THE FINISH LINES

IMG_3909.JPG (184723 bytes)

HERE SHE IS ALL MOUNTED UP
RUNS STOPS AND ALIGNS PERFECTLY

IMG_3907.JPG (155721 bytes)

ROCK DID NOT BUFF THIS BEAUTY OUT
JUST THE BEZEL SOME AND CRYSTAL

IS ALSO ORIGINAL
INTERESTING IT IS SIGNED IN CENTER
SLIGHT YELLOWING FROM THE 1940'S CELLULOID

IMG_3908.JPG (162229 bytes)

KANJI ON SEIKOSHA DIALED SEIKOSHA
TRY AND MAKE THAT FINISH! NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.
COLOR IS SUPERB.

 

ANOTHER ONE BITS THE WAVES
AND KEEPS ON KEEPING ON

 

HOME OUR PATRON LOVES IT
