    Eska stopped running

    I posted this in the watchmakers but figured people here might know something.

    So I picked up this little guy

    the other day and my plan was to replace the crystal, get it serviced and put a new strap on it but other than that I think I am going to leave it as is, the hands and face look great in person better than the pics. So I have a vid of it running when I opened the back to check the movement.

    Everything looked great and then I put the back on and it was still moving strong. I put it in my watch box and the next morning it had stopped. Everything looks the same inside but nothing is moving and I don't know enough to go poking around. Does anyone know what movement this is so I can have a basis for some research or at least find someone who can service it? Thanks.

    Looks like an AS 1187, see here: bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: AS 1187

    Perhaps some unseen detritus got into the movement when you had it open. If so, it should be an easy fix for any competent watchmaker.

    Regards.

    Thanks, that's what I am guessing.
