Repair service shop for Seiko Pogue?

#1 Post by urs4 » Wed Apr 18, 2018 4:03 pm

Can anyone suggest a watch repair service here in the states for a 1970's pogue model? Mine was passed down by my father, in great shape, but needs a rebuild.
I found one company online called eastcoastwatchbuilders that says they can perform the service for $300 bucks, but there is not much on their website overall, so not sure how legit.
Any info appreciated.

He 'da man. Well known for quality vintage Seiko service. As a result there is a long wait list, though.

So where exactly is this guy? Tried to look at his "about us" and his "blog" and there is absolutely nothing?

Don't have an address, but as it turns out he's not accepting new work anyway. Too much backlog.

I've serviced quite a few of the Seiko chronographs over the years. They're actually a pretty complicated movement and are kind of built in 4 layers. The only consistent weak point that I've found in these movements is the vertical clutch that is on the wheel that carries the seconds hand. If you've got one that resets inconsistently (to a different place every time) that's usually the problem. They're getting hard to find and expensive these days. Other than that they're a fairly robust little movement.
