Seiko skxa35 all over the place and stopping

Question

Hi All. My long lost skxa35 has been found and was obviously not wound. I took it to my local guy and he put it on the timegrapher in multiple positions and it was all over the place. I took it home and opened it up for the 1st time and first thing I see is the scratched case back. I wound it up and it kept perfect time face down and up. Next I wound it again and put it on and it stopped dead after about 10 minutes. Do you think the movement is loose in the case and the second hand is touching the crystal? Where should I start?

 

Thanks in Advance

So here it is with the complete donor swap. I decided to wait to swap the dial and hands because I was to tired last night and didn't want to mess it up.

Watch out because you need to swap the mov.t ring also, otherwise a Seiko 5 donor will move axially in the case and may stop the rotor from winding. You should take apart all dial side parts to do  that, but being very careful (and a bit rude to the ring) it can be done even without.
