after quite a few years away from the WIS scene, i've decided to renew my passion for watches. i must admit that this has been triggered by my brother wanting me to repair a broken link on the seiko sport 150 that i got for him one christmas over 20 years ago now. and the reason i got hooked last time was because he wanted a breitling aerospace, which i also got for him as a christmas present.

priority 1, as i see it, is for me to get the bezel on my seiko 7S26-0040 (rolex sub look-a-like) sorted. but that's another story.

prioriity 2 is to actually build my vintage omega seamaster 300 (SM300). i've got everything i need except a few tools and a bit of knowledge to go with them (i think!!!).

my first job is to replace the date wheel on the cal. 565 moverment that i've got. it's silver and curved and i want to fit the black flat one that i've also got. so, anyone know precisely how i go about removing said date wheel? i imagine (hope) it's just a matter of taking off a few screws.

Hi dude! Been wondering where you've been for the last several months. Was going to add you to the MIA thread in the GDF. Good to have you back.

well, giving up collecting watches has turned out to be a bit of a false economy. women are far more expensive and far less reliable!!! :blink:

And their trade in value is horrible. :sneaky2::laugh:
i'm the one that's been traded in (i think???). :001_unsure:

anyway, i have a plan (viz the SM300!!!). i have 2 cal. 565s. one has a dodgy rotor. so, i'll try everything out on that first. cunning, eh?!!! :biggrin:
