APPRAISALS
HAVE A WATCH TO SELL

OK, THIS IS WHAT YOU PAY FOR,

...WHETHER IT IS A RESTORATION OR INVESTING IN ONE OF OUR OFFERS. MOST PATRONS DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE WORK THAT GOES INTO A RESTORE. SOME ARE EASY, BUT MOST REQUIRE HOURS AND HOURS. NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS. ONCE STRIPPED DOWN PROBLEMS THAT WERE UNSEEN OR EVEN NOT EFFECTING THE MOVEMENT ARE DISCOVERED.

IT IS LIKE PULLING HEADS OFF AN ENGINE AND DISCOVERING THAT THE GASKETS WERE MM FROM RUPTURING AND WATER ENTERING THE BLOCK.

WORSE IS THAT IN A VINTAGE WATCH YOU CANNOT USE THAT GASKET AND A NEW ONE IS NOT AVAILABLE. SO YOU MAKE IT WORK...

THE EXTRA WORK YOU ARE ABOUT TO WITNESS, LIKE THAT OF THE CENTER WHEEL ETC, IS NOT BEING CHARGED FOR, ONLY PARTS THAT ARE UTILIZED-- NOT PARTS THAT WE TRY AND UTILIZE AND IT DOES NOT WORK-- EVEN IF THOSE PARTS ARE DAMAGED IN OUR ATTEMPT.

OUR POLICY IS IF WE HAVE A PART AND IT IS NOT RARE WE USUALLY DO NOT CHARGE. ONLY IF IT IS A PURCHASED CASE PART LIKE A SEIKO CRYSTAL.

THE STORY:

I COMPLETED THE TWO 6105 ON THIS PAGE 4 WEEKS AGO OR SO. AWESOME WORKS. ONE MOVEMENT HAD SERIOUS WATER DAMAGE.

I MANAGED TO LATH IT AND SAND IT AND POLISH IT  TO WORKING CONDITION. AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGES, THE ONLY LONG TERM FACT IS THAT IF THE SECOND HAND WERE TO COME OFF OR HAVE TO BE REMOVED THEN THE *CENTER WHEEL AND & SECOND HAND PINION AND SEVERAL SUPPORT PARTS WOULD  HAVE TO BE CHANGED, WITH FREE LABOR IF THE PARTS REQUIRE CHANGING DURING THE FIRST YEAR.

*I TRIED TO FIND THEM TO NO AVAIL.   REQUIRES NON RUNNING MOVEMENT. WE WILL LOOK FOR THE PARTS & IF FOUND NOTIFY PATRON

BEFORE THEY WERE SHIPPED WE, OUR PATRON AND I, DECIDED TO CHANGE HANDS. IT TOOK WEEKS TO GET MY 1500.00 ORDER FROM THE PHILLIES IN SE ASIA. I DECIDED TO RE-UP ON CRYSTALS, SEALS, HANDS MOVEMENTS... A LITERAL HOST OF PARTS AND "STUFF" FOR SEIKO WATCHES.

I THEN NOT ONLY INSTALLED THE NEW HANDS BUT RE-RE-RESTORED THE DIALS USING A NEWER TECHNIQUE I CREATED ONLY THE WEEK BEFORE--OR 2 WEEKS AFTER I "RESTORED-- NOT RESTORE AS IN PAINTING ETC, BUT RATHER MY CLEANING RESTORATION AND RE-ILLUMINATION.

I RE-HAD BOTH COMPLETED WITH DENISE READY TO SHIP WHEN I REALIZED ONE WAS NOT RUNNING.

SHADES OF THE 2205 [HEREIN], WHICH TOOK TWO OLD EBAY 2205 WATCHES JUST TO GET PARTS WHEN THE ORIGINAL DIAL CAME APART WHEN REMOVED [I ACTUALLY RESTORE-RESTORED IT WITH NEW LOGO, PAINTING, SIGNING AND LUME FOR FREE]  ....

......AND THEN THE STEM WAS NOTICED TO BE RUSTED AT THE CONNECTION INTO CROWN READTY TO SNAP,--MEANING NEW STEM AND CROWN --THE TWO MOVEMENTS WERE FROM NON-DIVE 2205 MOVEMENT WATCHES WITH STEMS AND CROWNS THAT DO NOT WORK ON THE DIVE-- THIS NEW HI-CUP WAS A **TEMPORARY BUMMER...

**MEANING I WILL FIX IT..


I utilize synthetic oils on certain models
reserved for certain brand models
Hi End
and
Dive Watches Like
Seiko 6105 6309
and others


1 - I opened the case back
and nothing got it to go
do I pulled the movement
removed the dial
[after the 4 x dial cleaning I was not going to get prints all over it]


2 - as you can see it is in immaculate condition


3- after insuring that the winding mechanism is operating properly
I pulled the winding assembly to check balance and main spring


4 - first, using a screw driver I wound main spring up
[note ratchet wheel left above thumb nail]


5 - nothing no matter what I tried it
was dead out of the water


6 - next I decided to pull the balance assembly to
check pallet- escape wheel- train - main


7 - I immediately cleaned the balance complete with bridge cock and jewels
[I did not note that the regulator pin was only 1/3 the height it
should have been and. I did not note that in my log
]


8 - ready to pull and lube
then lube top jewel and bottom jewel in plate of movement
[this is actually the  bottom jewel when in running position]

9 - I put her back together and she runs perfect
I then move her around not with force but as if it were on my arm no problem sit her on the bench rotor down 30 min later she stops. and, even when you move here back and forth ensuring the balance moves some
the sweep second hand does not move even one tick


10 - pull rotor
pull the balance
and I move pallet fork left to right left to right
the escape wheel works perfect meaning main it is powered and working
I want to double check the main so I remove the pallet fork


11- note crown and stem
this will offer you the look that the watch was in before service overhaul
note the pallet fork on top


12 - note the pallet fork with jewels is perfect


13 - I wind the ratchet wheel with screw driver and note how the drive train spins
it does with determination. no stopping, NO SWAY,
I  look at train running and examine all wheels and pinions
movements is moving perfectly.
the winding assembly works
the main starts up near immediately
no blockage or broken or bent wheels, pinions or tines
all jewels are like new
non jeweled bearings have no play
[note the two non-jewel  bearings to the left of the single jewel of escape wheel]


14 - everything is right


15 - so, why the problems15 -


16 - here is the balance complete
hair spring is perfect


17 - but I notice several items I missed.
examination of upper pivot shows that it is shorter
than it should be. enough to cause problems. 


18 - additionally the regulator pin is only 1/3erd the height it should be
thus she ran perfect until the balance shifted
