A rare one!

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.

Cheers!馃嵒

Congratulations, it looks nice and I am glad you got it running again

Very cool馃槑Love the green dial. It's possibly from late 70s, depends on the serial number. Definitely not 90s.

Congratulations on the watches and the successful rebuild.

Thanks! I ran the serial and it said either 鈥81 or 鈥91. I am leaning more towards 鈥81, as you鈥檙e saying
