    Exclamation I want to help my friend restore a Seiko SLR001 Perpetual Monster *Any Help Is Appreciated!*

    A long time friend saw my interest in Seiko Monsters and sent me a message saying he has an old one, but it's broken. I was ridiculously excited, and want to help him find a way to bring this monster back from the dead!!!

    The watch works perfectly he said, but the perpetual calendar thing is not working :(

    Any help in directing me to where to find parts, or just a nice "give up, it's too difficult" would be extremely appreciated!! :)

    Thank you, and I hope I am posting this in the correct sub-forum.

    I believe the movement is the 8F35 HEQ movement....it's quartz if that helps :)

    I am going to see if I can get the watch from him and ask if I can take it apart with my ball of Justice!!! Lol, I don't know what I will be looking at....but maybe blowing the dust off it will help :)

    I am hoping to continue to do some research into the movement and the perpetual date complication. I wonder if they switch the perpetual calendar function on every model...could I swap a new perpetual calendar Seiko quartz into it?

    Anyway, I will continue to update this riveting thread and hopefully add some information if I find some :)

    Have a great day, and thank you, in advance, for any information, or telling me I am a crazy idiot :P Maybe I will put it in a watch box with my Monsters and see if they fight to the death for our amusement....

    Not sure if you're still in need of this information:

    There are PDF files of the battery change instructional manual online if you google too.
