Greetings, I'm new here!
I have an issue with my Seiko SGG711 (Titanium) watch and was hoping someone could offer some advice.
Let me start out by acknowledging that this is not exactly the type of watch most people would typically go to much effort to repair, but, as is often the case with items such as watches, the sentimental value of the object can and will exceed the monetary value.
So, now that we've got that out of the way, the issue I'm encountering is not a major one, only a mild annoyance (for now) - basically, it's got day and date wheels that display on the right face (see picture), and they both move at the correct speed, and while the day can be adjusted, the date number is very difficult to change - as I try to adjust it with the knob, it tries to move up, but slips back down. If I obsessive-compulsively move the knob for several minutes, I can get the date number to make it to the next number, and all is well until the next non-31 day month ... and being in February, well, you know.. it's going to be annoying to skip a few numbers..
So I was wondering if you guys could shed some light on this type of issue, if it's fixable, if parts are source-able (obviously, this particular watch is not exactly a famous line for Seiko), and how much it could cost to be repaired.
It's been a good run for this watch, and I've worn it just about every day for a little over 6 years. I've never found another watch that fit quite as right as this one, and while I'll buy another somewhere if I have to, I'd really like to repair the one I've got.
Many thanks for any advice you can offer!
