I recently acquired (in a large lot of watched for only $15 USD) a vintage working Seiko 5 Automatic watch that was in great shape except the fact that there seems to be a pin missing on the watch band clasp as seen in the photos.

I was wondering where I could find the correct pin so I can fix this watch and use it!

Thanks a lot!

Hi!

Not sure where you are in the world, or what you have available to you for jewelry or watch repair shops....

but I would just go to a local jewelry shop or watch repair "stall" (where I am). If the place is accustomed to replacing straps & bracelets, they usually have an assortment of springbars & other replacement parts. Usually it's just a matter of the tech rummaging around in the parts bins to find one of the correct length & popping it in for you.

You may be able to find a watch battery stall in a local mall. Sometimes they will have more than just batteries for quartz watches, you may be able to find the correct springbar at just such a stall which was not even intended for vintage mechanical watches ;)

Shouldn't be a problem ... as long as you have those kinds of shops around your area.

yes, no more than a clasp spring bar will do the trick. Something like this -
