I've received a 2824-2 watch with the complain that it stops. Just looking at it in jeweler's shop I noticed:
date changes at the wrong time
caseback opening scratches
weight hardly turns
Then while disassembly
one casing screw missing
both dial feet snapped flush and consequent double side tape
lots of oil in the oddest places, like under barrel bridge
missing stop lever
barrel bridge screws lose, likely that's why the ratchet wheel left marks on it and it would not auto wind.
driver scratches on the barrel
One could think that was the result of an improvised repairer or owner. Not so, as it happens it was given to this small town shop which proudly has a sign outside: "master watchmaker". After a long time and much money the desperate owner wanted to try someone else to repair it. I hope to be able to.
Today I am enjoying this Seiko 5 (7009 movement). I bought it for almost nothing and it really didn't need much. The crystal was in bad shape and I replaced it with a magnifier (like that look and this watch does not have to be 100% original). The lume on the hour marks is gone, hands still glow fine. This thing moves right along and keeps excellent time.
