    Seiko Repair Advice

    Hi Everyone,

    Just wanted to get some advice re a Seiko repair. Many moons ago for an 18th Birthday present my parents bought me a Seiko 7T32-6M10. I have since moved on to other things, including a Speedy and a Seiko Prospex and there is nothing 'special' about that particular watch.

    Except that as an 18th Birthday present and my first watch of any real note, it is special to me. It stopped working a few years ago and I think the battery has leaked so parts of the movement may need replacing as well as a good service.

    Through someone I know who also happens to be a member of this forum, they suggested Duncan / Thewatchbloke. Unfortunately, he is so busy he is not even accepting new work at the moment and told me to try again in a few months to see how his workload is doing if I haven't found anyone else.

    Can anyone recommend anybody else who might be able to repair it, or is the consensus that I am better off waiting for Duncan?

    Thanks

    Not many people like working on 7T32's. You could try George Clarkson at OVW (in Berlin).
    He's one of the few who are prepared to. See his Testimonials (and YouTube channel).

    Isn't that just a module replacement?

    Paul at Tempus Watch Mods? He'd be my first port of call for anything Seiko.

    From what I have been told, the moduleís arenít available any more, making it more tricky., But I am going to try some of the names suggested.

    FYI - I am NOT a '7T32 expert' - not by any stretch of the imagination.
    My abilities are strictly limited to swapping movements or replacing PCB's.
    That's why I pointed the OP in the direction of George Clarkson (OVW).
    Paul at Tempus Mods is not someone I am familiar with, personally.

    Thank you - George Clarkson also looks promising and I have dropped him a line!

    Best regards,

    George has been very helpful and seems to have a lot of the parts. Watch will be on the way him to shortly. Thanks for your help.
