I've just bought a Seiko Sportura 7L22 SNL017P1, and as all the other watches I have, it's gone into rotation. I had left it laying for a bit more than 2 weeks due to work, and when I picked it up again, I noticed it had stopped. Not unusual I thought as it is a motion driven movement, but isn't it supposed to store energy in the capacitator for 5 months?
Well, I put it on and noticed that the seconds hand (which worked perfectly when I bought the watch) now ticked in 2 seconds increments! It is uregular even in this motion, it stops around 1/100 of a second in the middle of the 2 second increment. I just don't get it, the watch is new, but there must clearly be something wrong here?
Thanks for reading
