I am replacing one branded SII, the new one is branded TMI, I needed one with date at 6, the cheapest ones are with date at 3, I bought one of those and swapped the date rings over.

Hi Stephen, would you mind to share the process to swap the date rings between those movements?

Thanks.

Hello Jonhathan, viewing the date wheel side, there is a silver cover in the centre, clipped in position by several bits of it that are formed into clips, you can easily prise this off with a micro screwdriver, use a loupe also, hold a finger or something over the silver cover in case it pings off. When this cover is off you can just lift the date ring out. There is a black plastic cog that needs to be in place on a small post and another plastic thing, it fits in a slight recess, put the other date ring… Read more »

Update, I located the movement again, misremembered, no other plastic thing, recess is to position the silver cover, so, easier than I first mentioned. Only the black cog has to be in place, before you put the silver cover back on, the hour wheel in the centre of the cover just has to be lined up onto the centre post. (You put the date wheel back in place before fitting the silver cover).

NEAT calibre, with the seconds pointer hitting most of the marks on my watch, except a few in the bottom left sector of the dial, between 25 and 40. Amazingly accurate time-keeper! Mine is hiding in an Invicta Pro Diver 9204, blue and steel, in Connery/”Bond 007″ Submariner 37mm size. It normally sells for around USD 50 to 60, and I got mine on a “glitch” Walmart sale for USD 32, delivered on 6 Jan 2024. I did the DST dance around the house and set all my clocks and watches on 10 March 2024, and implemented my new Casio… Read more »

Are there any Mechanical movements that match the date ring specs? I’d like to convert a sentimental dial to mech movement and new case.
