Seiko NH36 - Movement Kit
Learn to build a mechanical automatic movement from its 50+ different pieces with our complete kit! The kit comes with the movement, all the tools you’ll need, and a beginner-friendly guide. The Seiko NH36 movement features a quick day-date function and 3 hands.
Movements come assembled to ensure safe transit and proper lubrication. The first half of our guide explains the disassembly, and the second half explains the assembly. Disassembly and assembly are completely different processes and both are important to learn on your watchmaking journey.
Our guide includes full instructions for disassembly and reassembly. We also break down the purpose of every piece, tips/tricks, and troubleshooting.
If you prefer to receive the movement disassembled, our team at Rotate can disassemble at an extra charge.
Add on a warranty in case you lose or damage parts of your movement.

As a watch enthusiast I’ve always admired the engineering that goes into watch movements and the skill required to build and service a movement. This kit came with everything required for a newbie like myself to dip his toes into the watchmaking hobby. The instruction manual was clear and the numbered pictures were extremely helpful for both taking the movement apart and putting it back together again. Of course, being a newbie, I broke some of the delicate pieces which is where the warranty came in and Rotate’s exceptional service shined. They sent the replacement parts quickly and even offered tips on installation via email! Would recommend this kit and rotate for anyone interested in getting into the watchmaking hobby!
Very easy to follow and detailed step-by-step instructions that also covers the function of each component. Kit comes with quality tools.
I bought this for my husband, this is what he has to say: "I have been watching the youtube videos about watch repair for a while and was intrigued by the mechanism of the watches shown. I always loved watches and the opportunity to work on them with the guide and tools provided by Rotate was all I needed to dive in. I love working on the mechanism and their guide is very detailed. I did break a very small part and had to reach out to Rotate customer service for help with replacing this part. They were prompt to respond and had my new part shipped right away. I do need to include that parts warranty was purchased at the time of checkout. Overall all I am very happy with their service! Thank you -Daniel Y
I was curious about how a wrist watch works so I somehow found rotate (or the other way around), order my kit, and got to work. I’ve torn this down several times using Rotates easy to use instructions. Whenever I’ve needed help I’ve reached out and they’ve been there. Not only do I receive tips but also their candid experiences as it seems they have faced the issues I do. For the person in your life who’s into tearing things apart to learn how they tick, this is the perfect gift for them.
My ease of ordering, receiving the product promptly, and in great condition were all great. However as for the product itself, it is a Christmas present to my son who has become very enthused collecting and now wants to dive into watch making and repair. So I'll have to see what he thinks after opening the present. I suspect he will really enjoy it for a long time.
