Seiko 7002 Loosing Time

Question

Hello there,

Im very new to watch movements but will love to restore this one i have eventually. 

Im just looking for advice, my Seiko 7002 automatic Divers Watch seems to be loosing time, i think this my derive from the second hand occasionally stopping randomly.   

I brought this watch from ebay last week and wear it all the time i also give it a 2 minute shake twice a day, so there cant be a reason that it isnt fully charged.

Is there an easy fix or will i have to strip down the watch and clean / oil it. 

Kind regards, Ryan

Without it being put on a timing machine we can't really say, but if the second hand is occasionally stopping unless it is just loose which I doubt the watch probably needs servicing, which would require a complete strip down, clean and oiling.

I treat any watch I get from ebay especially including ones that state 'Has just been serviced' as most likely in need of a service

Hello there,

Thankyou very much for your promt response, I was afraid it might come to this, so ive prepared myself by recently purchasing an watch repair kit and oils.

I will first check to make sure the second hand is securely on. 

I will most likely just follow restoration videos on youtube and get it overhauled. 

Is there any reason why the watch also keeps a bad power reserve? 

Kind regards,

A fault in the selfwind mech can cause poor power supply. Poor power reserve indicates a fault in the power reserve mech. 

Test;  to find out the actual power reserve.

Wind full, manually through ratchet wheel by a screwdriver in ratchet wheel screw slot.The automatic mainspring will dislodge from the barrel wall and releases power at some point, you can here the sound of power discharge ( listen close) try to count the number of turns before the power discharge,  Wind again, stop just short of power release ( turns you counted before). Set the watch on bench, record how long it runs.

We,ll see you with the result. Regards

    • I've never used the Longines archive extract but it has to be applauded for offering this as a free service, I have however used the Omega extract service which has a charge attached to it, that service was also good and included the Model number and Name year of manufacture and which retailer originally sold the watch and in which country. I have also had good experiences with a company called Eberhard many years ago, I needed some parts for a old chronograph I  bought at a local auction  I needed a full set of hands a winding crown, and oval pushers, on the off chance they may still have these I wrote to them with the serial number and received a very nice letter back from them telling me that my watch had been manufactured in 1938 and was a two button 18ct rose gold chronograph and that they did have the parts and would be happy to supply them for 65 Swiss francs. Try doing that with any of the large manufactures, their response was a pleasant surprise. I had the watch for many years but sadly I had it stolen about 5 years ago.
    • Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum. Where is NL
    • It's ok if that's how she self identified.
    • Personally I would see if incabloc springs fit.
    • Thanks a lot guys ... I'll do some test and show the results. I really love that dial though it's pretty stained and scratched so I'll try first with Rodico, Q-tips and distilled water and see how it goes. There is no financial risk as I got it for cheap ($40 shipped) but those 1002 dials don't often show up on the net and are sold for much more, even if they are damaged ... plus I have a nice 5500 case that's waiting for a dial    By the way ... did anyone of you ever drilled an ETA 2840 mainplate to make place for Rolex dial feets ? I'm asking because I have the case, the low beat ETA and a handset that could fit but I don't think I could ever cut the feets of a Beyeler Rolex dial
