THE CROWN HAS A DOUBLE TUBE
THE SMALLER THINNER TUBE IS TAPPED
SO THAT THE STEM WILL SCREW INTO IT
THIS TUBE WITH STEM IS LOCKED INTO A LARGER WIDER TUBE
THAT IS PRING LOADED WITH AN INTERNAL SPRING
THE STEM AND SMALLER THIN TUBE CAN MOVE INTO THE SPRING LOADED TUBE
SO WHEN YOU PUSH THE CROWN IN IT BOTTOMS OUT IN THE MOVEMENT
CAUSING THE THIN STEM TUBE TO PUSH INTO THE SPRING LOADED WIDER TUBE
ALLOWING YOU TO SCREW THE CROWN DOWN.

CASE-WALL-2.jpg (17211 bytes)

I USE A STRAIGHT EDGE RAZOR
INEXPENSIVE I GET 50 TO 100 IN THE BOX FROM HOME DEPOT
PLACE RAZOR SIDE UNDER OUTER BEZEL W/INSERT.
LIFT UP THEN DOWN THE BEZEL POPS OFF
THEN PLACE RAZOR SIDE UNDER CRYSTAL BEZEL/HOLDDOWN
LIFT UP THEN DOWN IT POPS OFF

SEAL-SEIKO.jpg (17205 bytes)

AFTER BEZEL W/INSERT AND CRYSTAL BEZEL/ HOLDOWN ARE REMOVED
WE SEE THE CRYSTAL CASE WALL WITH CHANNEL FOR CRYSTAL HOLD DOWN
[ACTUALLY FRICTION FIT]
AND THE LOWER CHANNEL FOR  SPRING WIRE IN OUTER BEZEL
WHICH IS THE MEANS OF HOLDING BEZEL W/INSERT TO CASE
WHILE PROVIDING A MEANS OF ROTATION WITHOUT COMING LOOSE

IT ALSO HOLDS BEZEL W/INSERT TO THE DECK 
ALLOWING THE BEZEL W/INSERT TO “CLICK”
AS EACH NOTCH PASSES THE CLICK BEARING

THE SPRING AND BEARING HOLDG THE BEZEL IN PROPER POSITION AS TO TDC
[TOP DEAD CENTER]
PRECISELY ALIGNING INSERT MARKS/NUMERALS TO EXACT TDC POSITION

WHEN THE BEARING IS MISSING THE BEZEL CAN MOVE ON ITS OWN.

NOTE THE

MOST “BEARINGS” SOLD ON EBAY ARE STEEL BALLS FROM BALL PONT PENS [HINT]
INSTALLING A BEARING ABOVE THE TUBE
WILL CAUSE  NOTCH SCORING WHERE BEARING RUNS
YOU REQUIRE A SPRING + BEARING THAT WILL FIT INTO TUBE
BEARING MUST PUSH INTO CASE     THEN POP UP IN-BETWEEN NOTCHES
WITH EXPERIENCE ONE CAN TIGHTEN THE TUBE SO ONLY TOP OF BEARING IS OUT
IF NOT, THEN PLACE SOME TAPE OVER BEARING AND SPRING
THEN MOUNT BEZEL AND REMOVE TAPE

BEZEL-SPRING-WIRE-6309.jpg (21534 bytes)

OUTER BEZEL W/INSERT
NOTE THE CLICK BEARING NOTCHES
ON BASE OF BEZEL
“CLICKING” PROVIDES
SECURE POSITIONING WHEN TURNING

AN IMPORTANT NOTE

SWIMMIMG, DIVING.AND/OR LONG TERM USE
ALLOWS MOISTURE TO MAKE ITS WAY AROUND THE BEARING
AND INTO THE TUBE WHERE IT CORRODES THE SPRING AND BEARING
I RECOMMEND EVERY 3 MOS, NO MATTER WHAT,
A SHOT OF WD40 WITHEN  TURNING OF THE BEZEL 10 TIMES
A CLOTH WILL REMOVE EXCESS. IT WILL NOT HARM ANYTHING

ALSO
IF YOU ARE ABOUT TO PUT THE WATCH UP FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD
PERFORM THE WD 40 TREATMENT. THEN WIPE DOWN
LEAVE SITE FOR AN HOUR AND WIPE DOWN ONCE MORE
WRAPE IN CLOTH AND PLACE IN PLASTIC ZIP LOCK BAG

A FEW DIVE WATCHES RESTORED BY ROCK

BUT WHEN BEZEL,CRYSTAL RETAINER, CRYSTAL, SEAL, SEAL RETAINER WERE REMOVED TO INSTALL THE BLUE CHAPTER RING
IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT THE MOVEMENT WAS NOT THE ONLY PROBLEM

IMG_1005.jpg (114577 bytes)

WHEN THE TOP END WAS DISASSEMBLED
IT WAS CLEAR THAT THE MINTY OUTER LOOK WAS JUST THAT,
AN OUTER LOOK.

THE FACT THAT MOVEMENT WHEELS AND PINIONS WERE WORN TO THE POINT OF STOPPING AT ODD TIMES WITH NO RHYME OR RYTHEM, DEMONSTRATED A KNOWN AND PREDOMINANT FACT: THIS SEIKO WAS A MAKE OVER WITH DAMAGE WAS “REPAIRED” BY FITTING THE CASE TO THE DAMAGED ITEMS ITEMS  RATHER THEN THE REVERSE.

THE ACTUAL GRIME AND MINOR –YET MAJOR TO THE FITTED COMPONENTS — DAMAGE THAT WAS REVEALED DEMONSTRATED THAT A RESTORATION WAS ONCE ACCOMPLISHED –BUT THE RESTORATION
PERSONA FAILED TO REPAIR THE ACTUAL DAMAGE..

SEIKO-6105-6309-DIVE-WATCH-CRYSTAL.jpg (21308 bytes)

; OPTING TO STICK TO THE COSMETICS AND NOT MECHANICS, WHILE   ELIMINATING ANY KNOWLEDGE OF THE ACTUAL PROBLEMS TO ANYONE
LED TO THE FOLLOWING: RATHER THAN THE REPAIR CASE, THE RESTORATION PERSONA FITTED THE CASE TO THE CRYSTAL, SAME WITH STEM TUBE,
AND EVEN THE MOVEMENT WAS NOT “FIXED” RATHER THE SELLER MUST HAVE COUNTED ON THE IRRATIONAL RUNNING MOVEMENT FIGURING IT WOULD NOT BE NOTICED AT FIRST HAND. UNLESS THIS TIME PIECE WAS FINE UNTIL A SERVICE OR RESTORATION AFTER INVESTMENT. IN OTHER WORDS, IT WAS PURCHASED FINE AND OVER TIME THINGS WENT SOUTH,

IMG_1001.JPG (102613 bytes)

.
THE FACT A BLACK CHAPTER RING WAS PRESENT THOUGH A BLUE DIAL WAS INSTALLED HINTS AT WHAT MAY BE HONEST MISTAKES BY AN UNTRAINED OR BEGINNERS WORKS AND THUS NO REAL BLAME.. THOUGH WE  WILL TREAT IT AS WE ALWAYS DO, WITH FACT AND NOT FICTION.

IMG_1033.jpg (25945 bytes)
6309-7049

THE 6309-7040 HAS THE LARGER CASE.
MOSTLY ON EITHER SIDE OF BEZEL

 

ROCK DOES NOT ACCEPT WATCHES FOR REPAIR.
ONLY FOR RESTORATION AND THEN HE WILL REPAIR.
THIS WATCH LOOKED GREAT SO HE WAS GOING TO JUST CHANGE OUT MOVEMENT
POLISH, BUFF AND REQUEST 125.00. THOUGH THE MINIMUM IS 175.00 NO MATTER WHAT.

HE JUST HAPPENED TO HAVE A BLUE CHAPTER RING AND

NOTIFIED THE MEMBER/PATRON OF THE DISCOUNT TO 125 AND ASKED IF HE WANTED THE BLUE SECONDS CHAPTER RING FOR FREE

 

IMG_0986.JPG (122441 bytes)

RUNS GREAT
DAY/DATE SETS

AS EXPLAINED ABOVE, THE MOVEMENT WAS  INSTALLED
AND THE CASE BUFFED AND DETAILED. ROCK WAS REPLACING THE BLACK SECONDS CHAPTER WHEN REMOVING THE BEZEL THEN CRYSTAL RETAINER
 REVEALED THE FOLLY OF THIS SEIKO DIVE


[THROUGH NO FAULT OF THE SEIKO!]

INCLUDED

EXTRA LABOR
NEW CASE BACK SEAL
NEW CRYSTAL SEAL
NEW STEEL CRYSTAL SEAL MOUNT RING
NEW BLUE CHAPTER RING
STAINLESS  SPRING & CLICK BEARING

THE CRYSTAL RETAINER THAT PUSHES THE CRYSTAL INTO THE SEAL SEAT THEN LOCKS TO CASE WAS NOT ONLY CRACKED, BUT HAD BEEN CHEWED UP TO MAKE IT FIT A CRYSTAL WITH PROBLEMS THEN SANDING?? CARVING?? GRINDING?? WAS UTILIZED TO GET WAT DID NOT FIT TO FIT

IMG_0987.JPG (107750 bytes)

THIS CASE WAS FINISHED IN A  MEDIUM LUSTER.
NO BEAD FINISHING BUT A LOT OF HAND DETAILING

IMG_0991.JPG (121527 bytes)

BEZEL INSERT HAS SOME EDGE COLOR MISSING AND SHOWS THAT IT IS
AN AFTER MARKET. NOTE IT DOES NOT FIT ALL THE WAY TO EDGE OF STEEL BEZEL
NOW, THIS IS SEEN ONLY UNDER MAGNIFICATION THUS DOES NOT WARRANT REPLACEMENT.
MANY SEIKO DIVES HAVE THESE TYPE MINUTE SITUATIONS, EVEN A NEW
AFTER MARKET CAN INSTALL THIS WAY . IN ADDITION, DUE TO THIS FACT, WE WOULD NOT
DESIRE TO DISCOVER THE BEZEL IS OUT OF ROUND. ANY PROBLEM WITH THE BEZEL WOULD REQUIRE
WORK OR A BEZEL AND INSERT AS FAR AS WE CAN SEE YOU CAN’T SEE IT
THIS SHOULD NOT EFFECT ANYTHING

IMG_1007.jpg (95192 bytes)

  SORRY ABOUT SPELLING
THIS HAS TAKEN 5 HOURS TO PUT TOGETHER
ROCK WANTED IT DONE FRI 5/16/2014 AT 12 PM WHEN HE WOKE
UP. HE WORKS ALL NIGHT, VAMPIRE IZ WHAT HE IZ
HE GAVE ME 12 PAGES OF DETAILS HE PUT TOGETHER
AS HE WORKED ON THIS AWESOME SEIKO DIVE….AND
A FULL TAPE NOT VAMPIRE BUT DEFINITIVELY

WATCH FORENSIC PATHOLOGIST

MEASURING THE BLACK CHAPTER RING AGAINST THE WALLS OF CASE MEASURING HOW MUCH METAL WAS REMOVED
HOW MUCH HAMMERING WITH STEEL PUNCHES TO REPAIR LEDGES MEASURE FOR NEW RUBBER SEAL MEASURE FOR A NEW FACTORY STEEL CRYSTAL RETAINER. ADD BLUE CHAPTER RING ADD THE BEZEL CLICKER SPRING AND BEARING

IMG_0992.JPG (84568 bytes)

BEZEL FINISH EXCELLENT. ALWAYS BE CAREFUL. BUFFING WITH COMPOUNDS CAN WEAR/CUT  OR ROUND THE NUBS. NOTE THE RIDGES AT BOTTOM  THAT CLICK OVER THE BEARING. A RUBBER SEAL IS FITTED INTO THE UNDERSIDE INTERIOR WALL OF THE BEZEL. IT WAS MISSING. WITH NEW ONE THE BEZEL IS TIGHT AND NOT LOOSE.

IMG_0993.JPG (128484 bytes)

REFINISHING CASES IS AN ART.

ROCK WAS ONCE ASKED A QUESTION CONCERNING HOW AND WHAT HE USED TO
  RE-REJUVENATE LEATHER STRAPS ET AL HIS RESPONSE WAS
EVERYTHING.

IMG_1004.JPG (100075 bytes)

IT IS NOT A ONE STEP PROCEDURE OR A SAME STEP PROCEDURE
TO REINVIGORATE AND RESTORE OLD LEATHER

AND THE SAME GOES FOR AGED STAINLESS STEEL.

 
IMG_0999.JPG (107750 bytes)

HOW MANY RESTORATION PERSONA HAVE EVER UTILIZED A JEWELERS BURN OUT OVEN TO TIME A GRADUAL HEATING OF THE ENTIRE CASE   SLOWLY TO A DULL RED HEATED TEMPERATURE

THEN PLACE THE CASE IN A TUMBLER WITH STEEL BALL BEARINGS.ROCK WILL THEN HEAT AGAIN AND IN BETWEEN, 5000 RPM CASE BUFFING AND CUTTING COMPOUNDS ARE UTILIZED.

PLEASE, DO NOT DO THIS UBLESS YOU ARE AWARE OF THE PROCEDURE
BE CAREFUL THIS IS A MUCH HIGHER SERIES OF EVENTS THEN SIMPLY STATED!

IMG_0998.JPG (85333 bytes)

WHAT HAPPENS TO STEEL AFTER YEARS OF WEAR?
THE ATOMS IN THE CASE RESET

LIKE GOLD ALLOY, 10,14.18 KARAT RINGS BECOME BRITTLE JUST FROM OPENING DOORS AND USING YOUR STEERING WHEEL.OF YOUR CAR THIS IS WHAT CAUSES BREAKS ESPECIALLY WHERE PREVIOUS REPAIRS WERE CONDUCTED

GOLD AND SILVER SHOULD BE ANNEALED AND THEN HARDENED  EVERY 4 TO 5 YEARS
THOSE WITH STONES THAT DO NOT “TAKE” HEAT SHOULD NEVER  BE ANNEALED

IMG_0996.JPG (114434 bytes)

NOTE THE HATCHET AREA ON THE MAGNIFIED EDGE OF CASE AROUND CROWN.
IT ALL DEPENDS, BUT AREAS LIKE THIS ON 7040 ARE FILED. WHY NOT ON THE  7049 THE 7040 CASE IS LARGE AND BULKED UP AND HAS A DEEPER CROWN PROTECTOR . ANY WORK THERE  DOES LITTLE TO THE INTEGRITY OF THE CASE.
BUT THE 7049 REQUIRES EVERY MM OF STEEL YOU DO NOT SEE THIS BUT IT IS THERE.

IMG_1003.JPG (96459 bytes)

THE HEAT TREATING AND FOLLOW UP WILL SOFTEN AND/OR HARDEN THE AREAS THAT NEED IT, A 20 YEAR OLD STEEL WATCH CASE CAN BE BRITTLE. SURFACE HARDENING IS ABSENT OLD CASES ARE PRON TO SCRATCHING AND DENTING.
THAT IS FACT

ROCK RECOGNIZED THESE FACTS BECAUSE OF HIS GOLD SMITHING EXPERIENCE.
BEING NOT SIMPLY A JEWELER BUT A SILVER AND GOLD SMITH

THE REQUIREMENT TO HARDEN/SOFTEN THE CASE MEANS THE OUTER SHELL
SHOULD BE HARDENED TOUGH TO RESIST DAMAGE WHILE THE INTERIOR/MIDDLE OF CASE SHOULD BE SOFTENED TO ALLOW  CONTRACTION AND EXPANSION

IMG_1009.jpg (46399 bytes)

NO CHARGE FOR
NEW CRYSTAL – STEEL HOLDER – SEAL – CHAPTER RING

REMOVE BLACK CHAPTER  REPLACE SEAL AND HOLDER REPLACE CHEAP GLASS CRYSTAL SEIKO HAD A TREATMENT THEY REFERRED TO AS HARDLEX CRYSTALS

[HARDLEX = A MINERAL GLASS CONDITIONED AND TREATED AFTER IT WAS MADE]

AFTER MARKET CRYSTALS LOOK ALIKE BUT ARE NOT ALIKE THE PARTICULAR GLASS REPLACEMENT CRYSTAL WAS NOT HEAT TREATED IN ADDITION DUE TO PROBLEMS IT DID NOT FIT PROPERLY, THOUGH IT LOOKED PROPER

 

IMG_0997.JPG (156177 bytes)

NOTE THE BLUE CHAPTER-. NOTHING WORSE THAN HAVING A COLOR DIAL WITH A BLACK CHAPTER RING AT LEAST TO ROCK AT THE VERY LEAST IT NOW LOOKS FACTORY FINISHED.

IMG_1011.jpg (86542 bytes)

HERE ROCK FIXED THE CLICKER SPRING AND BEARING THEY WILL STAY IN AFTER BEZEL IS REMOVED AND NOT WEAR OUT.  THE REPLACEMENT THAT POPPED OUT WHEN ROCK REMOVED THE BEZEL  WAS A LESS THAN ORIGINAL STEEL BALL BEARING FROM A PEN TIP THIS IS FINE AND UTILIZED BY MANY, INCLUDING ROCK,  BUT IT WILL WEAR OUT. SO IF ROCK HAS ACCESS TO AND ORIGINAL P;AIR HE WILL USE THEM

ROCK USED A GENUINE SEIKO SPRING AND SS BEARING
HE CUT THEM OUT OF A SEIKO CASE.

Seiko is one of a few rare companies that made everything for their watches. From Cases, Dials, Movements and Tools, TO Oils, Grease, Repair Equipment, Straps, Bands, Bracelets, Crowns, everything was designed, created manufactured in house.


IT HAS BEEN POSTED THAT:

1- AN ALL ORIGINAL 6105 MOVEMENT MODEL SEIKO, DEPENDING ON THE MODEL AND CONDITION, CAN RUN FROM 250 TO 7500.00

2- AN ORIGINAL 6105 MODEL  SEIKO, DEPENDING ON THE MODEL AND CONDITION, PROFESSIONALLY RESTORED, PRICE  DEPENDING ON ORIGINAL and AFTERMARKET PARTS, CAN RUN BETWEEN 400.00 TO 3000.00.

3-  AN ENCLOSED NON WORN MINT CONDITION -EVERYTHING LIKE IT WAS WHEN PURCHASED, WITH ONLY  THE ILLUMINATION DEAD, NON SERVICED OR REPAIRED, DELIVERS THE HIGH PRICES–   FACT IS, A IN OUR OPINION BASED ON FACT, A PROFESSIONAL MOVEMENT SERVICE MAY INCREASE THE PRICE.

IF MOVEMENT PARTS WERE REPLACED [MAIN SPRING BALANCE STAFF ETC] IT MAY ALTER PRICES AS TO USE VS CONDITION. ESPECIALLY IN THE MIND OF A BUYER. WE  SEE A SMALL CHANGES IN PRICING  IF IT WAS A REPAIR OF MAJOR PART LIKE BALANCE STAFF , WHILE A MAINSPRING WOULD NOT STATE IT WAS WEAR VS SMART MOVE .  AND, PRICE IS ADJUSTED UP AND DOWN BY THE FACT OF WHO, PERFORMS THE WORKS.  IF IT WERE HOME BREW OR BY BY SEIKO OR A PRO REPAIR WORKS.

FACT CHECK 1: IS CORRECT EXCEPT IT IS AN AVERAGE OF 250 TO 1800.00 WITH THE LEVEL ACHIEVED DEPENDING ON THE MODEL, WITH ALL ORIGINAL PARTS, THE MOVEMENT SERVICED –OR REPAIRED AS STATED ABOVE-, AND LOOKING USED TO LOOKING MINT.

FACT CHECK 2: IS CORRECT EXCEPT IT IS 250 TO 1300.00 WITH THE LEVEL ACHIEVED DEPENDING ON THE MODEL, WITH THE MOVEMENT SERVICED OR REPAIRED, WITH OR WITHOUT CHANGED MOVEMENT PARTS, AFTER MARKET OR ORIGINAL CASE PARTS.

SERVICE REPAIR REAL WORLD PRICE
NORMALLY MOVEMENTS SERVICING PLAYS NO PART IN NOT ATTAINING THE HIGH PRICES AND IN FACT SHOULD BE ACCOMPLISHED. MOVEMENT REPAIRS W/ORIGINAL PARTS SHOULD PLAY LITTLE PART IN PRICING BUT MAY, WITH CERTAIN MODELS AND/OR INVESTORS . AND IF THE PART DENOTES SHOCK, HEAVY USE ETC. OUR AVERAGE ATTAINED WAS FULL VALUE AS TO WITH/WITHOUT MODELS

Available on US military bases PX/BX AND R&R LOCATIONS, the early Seiko Divers, particular the 6105, were Popular with US soldiers in Vietnam. The 6105 would become a combat watch long before 1979 when Martin Sheen, as Captain Willard in “Apocalypse Now”,  wearing a 6105-8110 while traversing the NAM into CAMBODIA AND ITS  HIGHLANDS in search of the Off The Reservation Rogue Colonel Kurt  (Marlon Brando) and his “Montagnard” Army who were wreaking havoc on the Viet Cong [Vietnamese Communist Forces].

The Snake-Eaters and the Yards
The Vietnamese tribesmen who fought alongside American Special Forces won the Green Berets’ admiration—and lost everything else. The indigenous Montagnards, recruited into service by the American Special Forces in Vietnam’s mountain highlands, defended villages against the Viet Cong and served as rapid response forces. The Special Forces and the Montagnards—each tough, versatile, and accustomed to living in wild conditions—formed an affinity for each other….

The 6105-8110/8119 was made from 1970-1977, and were first delivered with the words “water proof” as in: “water 150m proof” on the dial, and “waterproof” on the case back. But a US ban on using the words “WATERPROOF” on watches meant SEIKO would alter the words to “water 150m resist” with “water resistant” on the back later in the same year.This adds to value. Many early Seiko watches carried the waterproof info, finding these, specifically the early 8119.. well, that is a cause for definite premium over the “resist/resist” models.
