I have an old watch gift from my mum that I would like to repair. There is a quartz 5Y32A movement. The movement I think is no longer available. Any alternative movement that I can use in that watch?
I don't know if there's any cross references for Seiko movements to others Seiko movements?
Providing that the watch is functional in other words is just dirty or the oil has gone bad. So basically providing the plastic plate isn't broken, the coil isn't broken and the circuit is working it can be serviced. At least Seiko thought it could be serviced at attaching the servicing guide.
Thank you my friend. That's very kind of you. The watch itself is surprisingly in good state. The bracelet is made of some material that does not scratch. So after some 25 years the bracelet looks still very good. I wonder what they used for that. Looks like haematite (it's black in colour) definitely not stainless steel. There is some black gunk on the coil though. Don't know what that could be
It is so annoying, the hands are loose inside the crystal but I can't get to them to put them back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can rotate the whole movement in the case, but not get it out... already tried more force than I am comfortable with.
Reckon it needs a paradigm shift in what I am doing
Thank you all. I don't have the dexterity to service a movement. And I know servicing a quartz movement is simply not worth it. Is there some kind of reference from Seiko where they give you the movement still in production and their sizes.
