This is a bit of a treasure, I think.
A neighbour of mine was selling three non-working Seiko's on auction online, which I won with $20; nice! It had a Kinetic model, and two Seiko Quartz with the SQ-logo on it, exactly what I wanted.
The Kinetic one needs a new capacitor and probably a service, but the case and bracelet is so scuffed, so I am in no hurry getting that done.
The first SQ is a 6922-7000, which also is quite rare, and I even bought the only movement on eBay, which was also not running; high hopes for this one..
Now. The first repair.
The Seiko SQ Sports 100 7123-8220 with a beautiful, dark green dial. From the 80- or 90's, this one is also hard to get parts for. When I received it it had no crown and no stem. Little did I know that that was all that was missing! I found one OEM crown+stem on eBay, for the low-low price of $50, and knew that it was that, or not having a functional watch.
I got it, and it didn't fit. I had to rebuilt the movement. My first quartz rebuild, in fact! All it was; a rotated clutch wheel, hopefully.
I put it back together, cased it, and put in the stem; it fit! The crown even screwed down like it's supposed to! I put a V390 battery in and put in to my ear..... tick, tock, tick, tock. Yes!! Finally!
Biggest relief in a while, I was so happy! There are still some things that I'll have to fix, but no hurry (New sapphire crystal, for instance).
Thank you for reading this far, I just had to share this one! Will of course share the other if / when I get them fixed.
