I hope I'm not violating forum rules here but:

I've got a Seiko SQ100 which I've had since leaving school 18 years ago. I sent it away to Seiko for a quote on a service and they said that the battery had leaked and it would need a full service at a cost of around £100. Can anybody PM me a cheaper alternative or Roy, if you do servicing could you PM me any details?

Thanks in advance,

Andrew.

Roy isn't in the servicing game these days.

It's got to be cheaper to source a movement and get someone to swap them over, £100 is daylight robbery imho

I agree with Paul, find out the module number and buy a new movement, bet it wont be much, I can then reccomend a great watch repair guy in Leicester...
I was once quoted by Seiko £60 to change a crystal for a Seiko '5' laugh.gif

Thanks for the quick replies guys, I'll dig it out tomorrow and have a look for the movement - I didn't think of that as a solution. It seems a lot more logical.

Many thanks,

Andrew.

Hello,

I have the movement number. It's 5Y23-8A50. I'm now off to try and find somewhere on the web that sells them.

Cheers gentlemen, smile.gif

Cheers Roy; depending on the cost, I'll have to consult the mrs first as she controls our finances. I'll let you know.

Many thanks,

Andrew.
