Does anyone know if it essential to use a 'hands puller' to remove the hands from this watch if I replace the movement?
I dont have one and am concerned about the possibility of damage.

Tony,

You really need to be careful if you remove the hands, the dial can very easily be ruined by one slip. Hand removers are very helpful, the dial really needs to be protected prior to hand removal, especially the sub dials hands

I was afraid of that!

What I was hoping to do was to get a cheap, battered but working watch and swap over the Circuit Block.
Even if the gear train was faulty, the Circuit Block would hopefully be OK.

Sorry to post on an old thread but I can't seem to be able to PM you tony

I see you had problems with a Seiko 7T32, me too!

My problems are one of the small gold switches inside the movement has fractured, can I ask where you got a quote of £35 plus p&p for a movement, as I think I'm going to need one to.

my email is 'novatron1_2 'at' hotmail.com' (this is to stop any bots harvesting my email)

ps. If you still haven't found a replacement circuit your welcome to mine once I get a replacement movement.

There are two crowns on the 7T32. I've tried pushing the lever but nothing seems to happen.

At last managed to remove the two crowns! :)
O.K., maybe I should stick to 7A38's, but I'll admit I'm struggling here. :bag:

I know where the 2 crown release levers are supposed to be on a 7T32:

But I'm b*ggered if I can get them to release the stems ! :hammer:

Anybody know what position the two crowns should be in to release them ? :dontgetit:
And does it matter which one you withdraw first ? :unsure:
Anybody else done it besides Tony o'Brien ? :lookaround:

Answer - you press down on the 7T32's crown stem release levers, with the crowns pulled out to the FIRST click ....
NOT the second click - as I'm far more used to doing with my 7A38's. :rolleyes:

Nope. Doesn't appear to. :no:

Thought I might as well bump an existing thread, rather than start yet another 7T32 thread. :jump:

Anybody else watching this eBay auction which just ended ? http://cgi.ebay.co.u...e#ht_561wt_1059

Not often that you see a used 7T32 sell for over £100 on eBay. This one nearly made £140 :shocking:

Quite a nice understated 'almost military' looking, and fairly rare version - a stainless black-faced 7T32-7B30:

Good set of photos (8 in total), including this one:

Could have quite fancied it myself - but not at that price. :thumbsdown:
