Hey guys, any idea where to get the grand seiko pin buckle? Seems like the buckle in most Japanese stores are sold out.

Hello,

Wondering if there's any recommendations for seagull movement servicing?

Tried crawling through previous threads, but can't find much info. :(

Not much discussion as many people do not like China movement, but you can try your luck with the usual watchmakers. Suspect you will have more luck at Chinatown small shop though, I never asked K2 before but I'm quite sure Mr Goh may not take it in.

Can try to call first, in some cases depending on the exact movement, it may make more sense to just swap out for a new one, repairing may cost more.

Bro, don't bother, buyers with a lot of non-specific questions 95% of the time not serious. Just buttering you up and wearing down your patience with questions so that you invest time in them. Then inevitably, they will sometimes wait a few days, ask questions here and there, then pop the "can the price be negotiated" or "give discount?".

So you're better off just not entertaining them. The moment they sense they're not going to get their way, that's when they say this sort of thing to see if you're weak and will give in.

I don't even bother answering non-specific picture questions anymore. Usually I provide quite a good description and set of photos. ANyone who asks more usually is a deal hunter.

A prominent member of a certain watch collectors' "group" made me a lowball offer for a watch once because he was "buying for a friend".

Approached me again after I sold the watch to passive aggressively suggest that he could have bought it from me at a higher price.

Ahh I see. Thanks anyway, will be dropping by K2 for my seiko servicing. Probably ask and see what he has to say.

Usually not worth to service seagull movement, just buy another movement or new watch. If repair charges exceed 100.. no point.
