Thread: Tired 70's? Sekonda automatic

  1. #1

    Tired 70's? Sekonda automatic

    Got this for 10.









    The crystal needs a polish, the case and bracelet needs a dip in the ultrasonic bath, the hands need reluming and the rotor is noisy.

    However, when trying to remove the caseback after undoing the retaining ring, it is stuck fast. The gasket is trashed and won't let go.

    Where can I get a caseback gasket for this? It's not a normal rubber one but a wide'ish washer type.

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Not yet pulled the caseback away completely.
    Will do later and take pics and measurements if possible.

    just thinking size wise would an old vostok o-ring fit it and you can pick up faulty vostok cheap or even a vostok o-ring itself from the bay cheap like from zenitar or some where like that

    for example

    That's the style of gasket I need. Just a bit bigger though.
    Thanks.

    that's more then likely the crown release dimple think a amphibian o-ring might just do it

    Sorry, wasn't a very well asked question.

    What I meant to ask was, what is the button above the crown on the side of the case?



    I'll keep an eye out for the Amphibian gasket. Thanks again.
