    Re: Non Running Seiko 7A28 help

    Hi Lewie.
    OK, I think you are mixing up the seconds hands. The centre seconds hand is the chronograph seconds. The small seconds hand at 6 o'clock is the "time" seconds. If the small seconds hand...

    Re: Watchmender is wrong shocker (Sun Headline)

    OK, you say: "The old one didn't come back with the watch", so the watch had a second hand. Presumably it was fitted to the watch when you gave it to RyteTime? If it was, and they claim the pinion...

    There are two sides to every story and so far we have only heard one. I prefer to keep an open mind before before joining in the destruction of a hard-won good reputation.
