Seiko 7a28 dial restoration, part deux



So, I got to cleaning the dial with some alcohol based fluid. It was extremely discoloured and I was really worried that I would ruin it. So, I bought a replacement dial with knackered movement, the dial is black which I think makes a nice Frankenseiko 

The dial was very dirty, like a martini

During cleaning a miracle happened, the dial came back to life!

And back in the case...

Looking good! Except now it was running very badly. So, it needed a clean and oil. I ordered some Moebius Quartz oil, and bit the bullet...

I've removed the anti-magnetic plate and was pretty scared at this point...


The IC and PCB are in pretty good nick, and now I've cleaned out the jewels and re-oiled them the watch is running really well. But, I broke a sub-dial hand taking the dial off, so I'm waiting for a new one in the post...
