I have a nice 6309 in my collection that has an issue with the click ball. The click ball collar is still in place but unfortunately, the click ball itself has lowered too much and it no longer functions.

Is there anyone who can remove the collar or do a repair for me? I do have a new Seiko click ball available. I am in the UK. Any help or advice appreciated.

Thanks.

Dave

I didn't think there was a collar - I thought the edge of the hole was 'peened' over ...>>

...to retain the click ball. There's certainly no collar shown on this diagram:

...you can clearly see the chamber, spring and ball but no collar or liner.

Why do you need to remove the collar?

I have two spare 6309 cases, both of which suffer from exactly the same problem. On both of my cases, it appears as though the hole in which the spring and click ball sit has some sort of cylindrical steel liner but I have no idea how deep it extends. Is this the collar you mean? All I want to be able to do is extract the click ball but have not yet come up with a way of accomplishing this. Any ideas anyone?

IIRC, the top of the hole is only peened over. Sounds like you have years of trash in the click ball hole. You could find something small, a punch, that will fit inside of the hole. Insert it in the hole and then twirl it about enlarging the hole, removing the peened over top portion of the hole. Then the click ball and spring may come out. You may have to still soak it some in a cleaner, degreaser, to free it all up.

There are instructions on here that tell how to replace the click ball and spring. It involves a Bic pen and a spring bar.

That's my problem Martin. Mybe the top collar has worn but with my 10 x loupe, I do see the collar you mention.

It appears you have the same problem as me.

Penetrating Oil

I'd try a few drops of penetrating oil. Be careful not to contaminate the crystal gasket.

My 6306-7001 case doesn't have the collar you speak of. The top of the hole is peened over to prevent the ball from escaping. In order to replace the ball, you'd have to open the peened-over portion of the hole. Upon replacing the ball, I guess you'd have to use a closing punch to peen-over the hole once again.

Best of luck,
Myles
