  1. So, I took the watch back by my AD and he said that I'd need to send it back to Seiko because the 2k era quartz movements are notorious for this problem. He did locate some corrosion on one of the battery contacts, but said he couldn't be sure that would cause the problem described. Of course it was working when I left the house, but the temperature difference in the truck caused it to stop. It started ticking again about 4 hours after I put it back in the display case. *sigh* I'm a bit disappointed with that answer. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

  3. Hello, I recently reacquired a watch I had swapped off to a friend years ago, a Seiko 7t62-0am0 Asymmetry (I believe was the name). The watch is a quartz movement and is a chronograph. When I initially bought the watch (new) it was worn gently. When I traded off the piece it was to a dear friend who tucked it away in a box and essentially forgot about it until recently. I got the piece back a few weeks ago, had a battery installed at an AD and it worked normally. After arriving home, I put on the watch and it was functioning normally, except it stopped after about 30 or so minutes. I took it off thinking it was a faulty battery or connection, but when I looked at it the next day in the display case it was again working. After repeatedly wearing the watch and removing the watch when it would stop, I have come to believe that my body heat is causing some metal part to expand, thereby making the watch stop. Could this be the case? If so, what exactly is the issue (i.e., which part is the culprit)? *the photo is a stock photo of this model watch* Thank you in advance for your assistance. Respectfully, Dr. C. King
  4. Hello all, I've been a watch collector since I was around 12 years old (39 now) and have loved them since. I live in Deep East Texas and have recently decided to start studying watch making. I love the YouTube channel btw! I hope everyone is well and has a safe and happy holiday. Regards, Dr. C. King
