Noob - First Post

Question

Attached is a picture of my Seiko 7T34-6A009 - I know it is hard to see but you can see the Chronometer dial at 12  reads 27 and the second hand of the Chrono - (Green Hand) is also at 27 position. 

 

I have found the manual and followed the directions to reset the Chrono - everytime I do it returns to this position. 

 

I am thinking that it is simply the hands were incorrectly installed - the entire watch runs fine, keeps time etc. It needs a new chrystal and I have a perfect watch.

 

 

What say ye?  OR is there some sort of internal reset/repair that need be done?

 

I know that Seiko has ceased making this movement - This watch has sentimental value to me

 

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.....

Welcome to the forum. The hands should be easy to fix. Just pull the winder all the way out and press the pushers and the hands should step forward. Each pusher should govern a sub-dial. I can't remember but I think I demonstrated this in one of my vids re. Seiko.

 

Good luck :)

    • Lol that's the problem JohnHutchins....I do not want to have to take apart this watch just to replace a capacitor, especially with those annoying/fragile plastic gears. Not worth the effort for a $60 job. I feel like Citizen made it like this in order to force customers to send their watch in for a $200 service that takes 6 months (in which they will just rip the stem out and replace the entire movement). Shame. You might be right though, Pip, maybe there's been some sort of manufacturing flaw or unseated piece that is preventing the stem from coming out. Shit does happen.
    • Maybe you have a broken or unseated piece meaning the stem removal lever doesn’t move into position when you pull the stem out. Shit happens! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
    • A vintage Dundee lady tonight. I doubt if this is the smallest Timex watch ever made, but it is certainly fairly dinky. Serviced and polished, but the strap that was on it is done, and I have no 10mm straps, so I'll need to get one. I'm unsure of the age, if any of the experts know, do tell.  Other than a very light crop of green fungus on the strap pins (fresh pins fitted) and the dead strap it was fairly tidy and polished up rather nicely. It is managing a fairly respectable swing of 265 degrees and sitting slightly fast at +70 at the moment, so I'll let it settle overnight and finish it up tomorrow.
    • Seems like you are getting to the point where you have to make a decision - do I disassemble the watch completely in order to get the movement out of the case?   
    • Pip - yeah I've also taken a look at the diagram, but thats the assembly from the underside of the movement. And if you look at the dashes, the set lever ends up being set into a place farther up towards the center, which can't be reached from the dial side. This thing is a straight up anomaly.
