6105 8000

IMG_3864.JPG (111355 bytes)

THE BEAUTY ON LEFT IS THE COMPLETED MODEL WITH SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL

ALL IT WAS WAITING FOR WERE HANDS

6105 8000

IMG_3867.JPG (133542 bytes)

I BROKE TWO CRYSTALS DUE TO PROBLEMS WITH CRYSTAL LOCK BEZEL
HAD TO REPAIR SEVERAL PINIONS AND STAFFS DUE TO RUST DAMAGE
DIAL WAS WORKED TWICE
REPLACE HANDS WITH NEW HANDS WITH THEIR PINION TUBES FILED
TO LOWER THEM AND ALLOW THE SECONDS HAND TO FIT PROPERLY
INTEGRATED 6106 PARTS INTO THE 6105 MOVEMENT
THE BRIDGE COCK AND BALANCE  COMPLETE HAD TO BE CHANGED
THE BEZEL SPRING WIRE REQUIRED WORK

IMG_3865.JPG (98501 bytes)

READY

IMG_3861.JPG (103901 bytes)

NOTE THE CRYSTAL IS CLEAR

IMG_3863.JPG (151714 bytes)

ILLUMINATION ID SINILAR DUE TO THE FACT TO LOWER THE HANDS
THE HAND TUBES THAT FIT OVER HOUR WHEEL & CANON PINION
WHERE FILED HALF WAY DOWN TP LOWER THEM SO THAT
THE SECOND HAND THAT FITS OVER THE REPAIRED RUST DAMAGED PINION
HAD ENOUGH HEIGHT. THE FACTORY ILLUMINATION HAD TO BE REPLACED
AND I USED THE SAME AF LUMINOVA AS THE MARKERS

IMG_3858.JPG (114571 bytes)

I CHOSE TO KEEP THE CASE BACK OF THIS 6105 8000 WITH A POLISHED FINISH

 

 

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


19 –

20 –

NOTE, FURTHER DOWN YOU WILL SEE RUST DAMAGE TO ONE M0VEMENT
YOU WILL READ WHAT I DID WITH NO PARTS. EVERY THING WORKED
BUT SECOND HAND PINION. SO I IMPROVISED.AND FORGOT IT TOOK 5 HOURS
AND PULLED THE HANDS.. DUH,ANOTHER 5 HOURS
IF SECOND HAND EVER COMES OFF IT WILL REQUIRE PARTS.
I DID NOT CHARGE FOR THIS EXTRA FIX…

THEY BOTH ARE MINTY
CASES AWESOME
DIALS SHARP
NEW HANDS

IMG_3377.JPG (84330 bytes)

WIRE BEZEL HOLD DOWNS WERE IN BAD CONDITION
MOST DIFFICULT WAS THE ONE ON THE CASE WITH SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL

I MANAGED TO GET THEM TO WORK
THEY ARE SUPER TIGHT.

A STRAIGHT EDGE RAZOR LIFTS THE BEZEL
THE WIRE FITS IN A CHANNEL
YOU PLACE THE BEZEL ON
HOLD IT AS YOU TURN OVER ON TOP OF WOOD BENCH
PUSH DOWN TILL IT SNAPS IN

WHAT I DISCOVERED WAS THE SAPPHIRE DID NOT PUSH AS DEEP INTO CHANNEL
THEN THE BEZEL WHEN PRESSED ON
[USING A CRYSTAL PRESS]
THE WIRE WENT INTO THE CHANNEL AND LIFTED THE HOLD DOWN
BUT, IN THE END I GOT IT TO WORK

IMG_3370.JPG (132100 bytes)

STEEL RING PRESSED OVER GLASS
IT CONTACTS THE BEVELED AREA PUSHING INTO SEAL

WOW LOOK AT DIAL LUMINOVA HAS SETTLED
THIS IS BEFORE ONE MORE FILL OF LUMINOVA
IT IS EASIER WITH HANDS YOU CAN PUSH CROWN IN AND TURN
TO INSPECT AS YOU Level THE LUMINOVA
THIS STUFF IS NOT JUST PAINTED OVER OLD
OTHERS DO THIS I DO NOT

IMG_3359.JPG (151339 bytes)

THERE IS A 5 STAGE PROCESS TO FINISH
A DIAL WITHOUT “REFINISHING” IT


IN OTHER WORDS CLEANING
AND
USING CHEMICALS
AND
OTHER SUBSTANCES TO BRING OUT

SORRY, BUT I MUST BRAG THAT I CAN MAKE A DIAL SHARP
AS LONG AS IT HAS ITS BASIC FEATURES NOT WORN OUT
ESPECIALLY BLACK NON GLASS DIALS

THE BEST.

WHAT IS DIFFICULT IS REMOVING THE OLD LUME.
A RAZOR AND GRAVER

THAT IS AN EXTREMELY SHARP DIAMOND SETTING GRAVER
ONE SLIP AND…

YOU GOTTA SAY THIS DIAL IS KILLER
I MUST CONFESS I RE-WORKED BOTH DIALS 4 TIMES
I JUST WAS NOT SATISFIED JUST LOOK AT LOWER PICS
THE WATCHES WERE SUPPOSED TO SHIP
I JUST COULD NOT DO IT WITHOUT CHANGING THE HANDS

THEN, A ENTIRE DAY AS I RE-CLEANED AND WORKED BOTH DIALS

IMG_3368.JPG (151744 bytes)

WOW………

LOOK AT THIS PIC AND THEN THE ONES WAY DOWN
YES, NEW HANDS
BUT THE DIAL RECEIVED A 4TH WORK OVER
TELL YOU THE TRUTH

I WOULD KEEP THESE CAPTIVE UNTIL THEY WERE RIGHT
I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOO GLAD I DID NOT SHIP

2205 LADIES SEIKO DIVER

 

ALL READY EXCEPT
NEED A
CROWN AND STEM

IMG_3066.JPG (145122 bytes)

REPAINTED RE-ILLUMINATED NEW LOGO

PATRON STATED HE WANTED TO KEEP DIAL AS IS

BUT LIKE WHAY CAN OCCUR WHEN WORK IS REQUIRED 
TO REPAIR THE MOVEMENT

IT FELL APART

NO MATTER WHAT, WE WERE UNABLE TO ALIGN THE SEIKO LOGO
REGARDLESS OF THE FACT THE ONE THAT WAS ON THIS 2205 WAS ACTUALLY MOUNTED WRONG
AND IN TWO PIECES

THE HOLES WERE THE PROBLEM,

ON THE GOOD SIDE IT IS NOT VIEWED AS BAD AS IN THE ENLARGED PHOTO
LIKE I STATED, THIS WAS GOOD LOOKING DIAL UNTIL IT WAS REMOVED
A PIECE OF THE BLACK PAINT UNDER THE PROBLEM LOGO CAME LOOSE
ALONG WITH THE TWO PART LOGO THAT WAS ACTUALLY GLUED ON
THE LOGO SIMPLY FELL OFF IN TWO PIECES
AND THE PAINT WHEN WE USED OUR “SILLY PUTTY” TO CLEAN DIAL

IMG_3068.JPG (109527 bytes)

CRYSTAL STEEL CRYSTAL HOLDER
NOTE CRYSTAL SEAL IN THE HOLDER
PROBLEM IS THE SEAL ENLARGES WHEN REMOVED

I WOULD LIKE A NEW CRYSTAL AND NEW SEAL
OUR PROBLEM IS THAT IT TOOK 6 WEEKS TO RECEIVE SEIKO PARTS
FROM A DEALER IN THE PHILLIPINES WHOM I HAVE
UTILZED FOR 8 YEARS. 6 WEEKS. WHEN I PLACED THE ORDER IT WAS
FOR 6309 7040 AND THE 6105 8000 + PARTS AND THEY JUST CAME IN YESTERDAY

IMG_3074.JPG (127797 bytes)

ORIGINAL WILL BE POLISHED WITH FLOOR WAX.

GET NEXT ONE AND REALIZE INSTALL ROTOR ASSEMBLY

IMG_1539.JPG (170139 bytes)

DIAL IS LIKE NEW. MARKERS WERE NOT SIMPLY COVERED WITH NEW LUME. THEY WERE COMPLETELY EMPTIES. THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THAT THERE IS NO WAY TO RE-SILVER THE BRASS. BUT I LIKE THEM AS IS BECAUSE THEY LOOK ORIGINAL  

IMG_1502.JPG (138057 bytes)

THE RUSTED CENTER WHEEL STAFF AND PINION IS ON THE GOOD/BETTER  6105 8100 WITH ORIGINAL CROWN.  ONCE SHE WAS CLEANED THE TOP OF PINION WAS REDUCED BY 50% .  7 HOURS WENT INTO TRIMMING HOUR WHEEL & CENTER TUBE WITH A FILE AND THEN THE BASE OF THE HOUR/MINUTE HANDS SO TO BE ABLE TO MOUNT THE SECOND HAND.  CHECKED FOR NEW PARTS TO NO AVAIL IT WORKS FINE BUT AS SOON AS I FIND ONE I WILL REPLACE NO LABOR CHARGE –JUST PARTS AND SHIPPING

IMG_1540.JPG (185592 bytes)

CASES CAME OUT EXCELLENT. BUT AS WITH ALL MECHANICAL VINTAGE WHEN YOU BEGIN TO PERFORM WORK YOU CLEAN AND CLEANING REMOVES BUILD UP OF OILS THAT DRIED LONG AGO AND THE LIST GOES ON, WHERE ONE HAD NO PROBLEMS WE NOW HAVE PROBLEMS. HAD THE PARTS NIT BEE CLEANED AND ELECTRO CLEANED THE RUST WAS HOLDING THE SECOND HAND W.NO PROBLEM.
IMG_1547.JPG (148146 bytes) IMG_1548.JPG (165034 bytes)
LEFT IS NEW CRYSTAL SEAL. I STILL RECOMMEND THE ORIGINAL MINERAL GLASS HARDLEX, REASON: BESIDES THE POOR ABILITY TO TAKE SHOCK, IT’S GREAT CLARITY MEANS THAT THE VINTAGE WATCH RESTORED LOOK IS GONE LEAVING A CLEARER WINDOW THE THE MARKER WINDOWS THAT WERE ATTACKED BY RADIATION. A SEIKO AFTER MARKET HARDLEX PROVIDES THE PERFECT LOOK OF AGE VS DAMAGE. WHAT WE DO NOT WANT TO HIGHLIGHT IS THE WEAR SUCH AS THE BRASSY DIAL MARKER WINDOWS, THE CULPRIT IS NOT A “FUNGUS” FROM MOISTURE , BUT THE RADIOACTIVE TRITIUM THAT WAS USED TO ILLUMINATE THE DIAL. THIS IS ABSOLUTE FACT. IT EATS INTO THE PLATING ON THE BRASS WINDOWS. REMEMBER WE US AF- LUMINOVA. PHOSPHOROUS AND ZINC, VS RADIOACTIVITY.

THE 8000 W/8119 CROWN NEEDS A BALANCE complete: balance wheel, balance staff, hair spring.7 frustrating hours to get it running in tune with the first one which does not remove the fact as stated. parts for the 6105 are rare.the balance wheel was bent, it looks like someone had worked on the balance. the staff had pitting that was polished out and the hair spring was a mess.in fact it looked as though it was changed out. I GOT IT RUNNING BUT AGAIN, A LOOK OUT FOR A 6104 IS NOW ON THE FIND PARTS LIST. IT THE WORK ACCOMPLISHED DOES NOT HOLD UP OR IS IT DOES, IT STILL WILL REQUIRE A BALANCE. .

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.

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.
