Wondering if anyone can help with hopefully 2 minor mechanical issues.
First - I have a Seiko 5, don't have model number, brand new dressy silver dialled one with pinstripes.
Works fine, keeps good accurate time, but the Power reserve seems poor, barely goes past 12 hours unworn before it stops.
I noticed that the rotor doesn't spin very freely, if I rotate the watch it stays in place more often than not, and it takes a little jiggling to loosen it and get it to swing.
- Is this a case of it just being screwed on too tight? Is it simply a matter of taking the screwback off and loosen it slightly? Or am I walking into a trap? Any tips/advice welcome.
Secondly I have an 70s/80s Sekonda, manual wind with the 2209 ultra slim movement.
Works well (slightly stiff to wind, but movement looks in great shape on visual inspection).
When sat on the desk it keeps spectacular time. However when I wear it it starts running a couple of minutes per hour slow with consistency.
Is this just the warmth from my wrist causing this and does it just need the timing adjusting to compensate (ie - was it adjusted when just on a cold desk) - or does this indicate something more serious - like something loose or slipping when worn that's causing the time loss?
Any and all advise warmly welcome. Thanks chaps.
