Review: Seiko 5 Sport SNZG13
I strongly recommend to check out Lawson's walkthrough first. This is a more recent movement based on the said 7S In brief, former movements didn't have hack or manual wind. Still, several parts are interchangeable with the older 7Sxx series. Those parts could be easily damaged so we put them out of harm's way. This is standard for this movement family and snaps, day disc and date rings are interchangeable. The other picture shows the snap right side up. No philips proprietary 4th screw here, all four are the same Ehem, just the other side view This bridge has been modified also to add the manual winding mechanism. More on that later. Removing the click and the "fourth wheel and pinion":. Thank you Geo, I got those as inspiration. I'm not through yet with the strip tease. Then, it will be the reassembly, notes and so on. Great Walkthrough bob. It's not the easiest of watches either - lots of unconventional looking parts. These are views right side up and upside down respectively:. Removing the "reduction wheel holder", "pawl lever" and "first reduction wheel " shown left to right:. Then, on the other side removing the "lower plate for barrel and train bridge" and srew:. Finally, removing the "ratchet sliding wheel spring":. So reassembling of this bridge should be done in reverse and following the recommendations in this page:. This ends the disassembly of the NH36 movement. Reassembly following next. Do you want the average man on the street to gain the knowledge, and confidence, to service his own watch?! This must end now, and this thread should be removed! On a serious note, that really is a well put together walkthrough. I really should take note and put more effort into it myself. Thank you guys, I appreciate your kind words. No worry Lawson, lots of secrets still uncovered! BTW, my camera is a canon powershot elph in auto! I'd love the input! Remember the skinnier cog goes towards the crown. One trick to hold this bunch of parts without falling is to use rodico to cover the bottom of the hole. NOTE: The arrow points to the "groove" where the balance stop lever and the setting lever engage.
Seiko Military Black Dial Automatic Watch with 42mm Case, and SS Bracelet #SNZG13K1
The Seiko 5 line of watches is vast, including watches from a number of genres dive, dress, military with varying dial colors, case finishes and strap choices for each model. These components are as follows. Now which Seiko 5 is right for me? The Seiko 5 variations are endless, though a good place to start when trying to decide which is right for you may be to look at those models that have, over time, developed a fan base. As Zach pointed out in his review of the SNZH, its a diver with heritage design elements similar to that of the iconic Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, making it a no brainer Seiko 5 for dive enthusiasts. Unfortunately for those who prefer mid-sized to larger watches, the SNK is not an option, measuring just north of 37mm in diameter. Measuring a more robust 42mm in diameter, the SNZG is a great Seiko 5 pick for someone in the market for an affordable mechanical military field watch. So, without further ado, lets jump into the specifics of the SNZG. The case of the SNZG is simple and clean with really no frills or surprises to speak of. Measuring 42mm in diameter and 12mm tall, it sits in a comfortable middle ground between the larger watches that are very popular of late and the sub 40mm pieces of yesteryear. The top case of the SNZG is a brushed finish, and along the sides is polished finish. In fact, I bet in 20 years, a Seiko SNZG with its fair share of dings, scratches and a bit of patina is going to make for one bad ass looking military watch. The dial of the SNZG is good example of a utilitarian dial that while displaying considerable information, remains well balanced, clean and legible. Moving further toward the center of the dial, you will find a large hour numerical scale. A bit further in from there you will find a hour scale. This is common for the military field watch, and provides a touch of authenticity and utilitarian sensibility to the watch. Lastly, the hour and minute hands of the SNZG are fence post style and are fully luminescent, while jus the red pointed tip of the second hand is lume filled. It features a signed deployment clasp, and we found resizing the bracelet to easy. Taking the bracelet off is fairly painless, bit getting it back on is quite difficult. This has a but to do with the snug fit of the bracelet to the case of the SNZG, so to that end, the trouble may be worth it. Nevertheless, it is worth noting. The Military styling of the watch pairs perfectly with the rugged good looks of a nylon NATO, we have pictured it here with a green NATO, but it does look fantastic on other colors as well. The metal bracelet certainly helps the the SNZG look at times a bit more formal and at others quite sporty. There is a lot to like about the Seiko 5 SNZG, from its spot on military styling to its trusty, and full-featured Seiko automatic movement. Very nice, and maybe the best bang for the buck. Though I still want that Seiko 5 that looks like the Fifty Fathoms. I work in a profession where a suit is a must, but due to the nature of the job my watches tend to cop a battering. In my opinion, this watch strikes a solid balance between professional, presentable and utilitarian, and it has stood up to a remarkable amount of unintentional abuse. Highly recommended. Love your site. Would it be possible to replace the face of this watch with something simple like the Maratac Pilot? I like the size and features of this watch, just not the logos. How would you compare the Maratac to the Seiko? I have the SNZG13 with a staineless steel strap.

Hello guys, This is my second review on the same wathc that I purchased as a christmas gift for myself desember I have been using the watch dayly for 3 monhts now, and it is a great watch! The movement has never stopped, although it has no hand winding. I admit I walk quite a bit most of the days, at least a little walk with my dogs. The other thing - accuracy. Most of the time. In the beginning the watch gained about 10 seconds a day, but then it has been at pluss minus 2 seconds. This is great. The transaction was pleasant and the watch arrived 72 hours later almost to the minute, here in Casper, WY. My first impression was, WOW, this looks great on my wrist. Nice big easy to read numerals. An instant favorite. I was afraid the larger 44mm size would be too big for my wrist, but no, it is just right. The watch strap fits correctly and I suspect over time I will try different straps. The lume was not charged before bedtime and I woke hours later, still able to read the time. So, it does go dimmer, but it was bright enough to read in pitch dark conditions. The watch arrived in what looks like the original box with warranty card, tags, and instruction manuals. It was well packed and undamaged in delivery.
